Halle Berry's latest movie was supposed to be the big-budget romantic comedy New Year's Eve – but for the actress and her ex, Gabriel Aubry, the feel-good film may have been the final straw in their already-strained custody arrangement over their 2 ½-year-old daughter Nahla.
According to a source close to Berry, the actress's movie contract included compensation for Aubry to accompany her and Nahla to New York City for about two weeks of filming. But when Aubry decided not to go, says the source, Berry was forced to abruptly pull out of the film. She has since been replaced by Katherine Heigl.
Berry, 44, who has a nanny, currently shares custody of Nahla with Aubry. She pulled out of the New Line production not because she wouldn't have childcare help but because she was concerned about leaving Nahla in L.A. while she filmed in N.Y.C., claims the source.

The custody war between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry publicly ignited this week – but several sources close to Berry tell PEOPLE that the real trouble began brewing around Christmas.
Berry became alarmed, say the sources, when the couple's 2½-year-old daughter Nahla became hysterical after Aubry came to pick her up for a visit a few days before the holiday.
"She was crying and kicking and screaming," claims one source. "She was hanging onto her mother's legs so she didn't have to go."

By the standards of Kim Kardashian's usually high-profile romances, this one only flickered and faded.
In late November, the reality starlet and Canadian model Gabriel Aubry caught a Lakers game and stepped out to watch the movie Burlesque. They then quietly went their separate ways, and by early December, Kardashian was dating pro basketball player Kris Humphries.
But sources say that one person took the brief episode seriously: Aubry's ex, Halle Berry.

After splitting last April, Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry seemed determined to remain peaceful co-parents of their daughter Nahla, who will turn 3 in March.
But tensions rose quickly, and now Nahla's parents are gearing up for a custody battle that's already turning nasty, with ugly accusations flying.
"Once they broke up he became verbally threatening to Halle," Aubry's former friend and business partner Stephane Bibeau tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "He is a vindictive guy." Bibeau and other sources close to Berry, 44, claim that Aubry, 35, has used a racial slur against her.

Gabriel Aubry is responding for the first time to Halle Berry's claims that their 2½-year-old daughter Nahla may be unsafe in his care.
"While Gabriel is disappointed in Halle’s decision to falsely malign him publicly and for her own purposes, he refuses to be pulled into her dispute over a canceled film production," a rep for the model, 34, said Tuesday in a statement to Access Hollywood.
"Gabriel also refuses to air their issues in the press as he believes this may ultimately harm their daughter," the statement continues. "The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla."

Halle Berry says she's preparing to go to court with her ex Gabriel Aubry over custody of their 2 ½-year-old daughter Nahla.
"Halle has serious concerns for her daughter's well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her," the actress's rep tells PEOPLE.
To clear her schedule for custody litigation, Berry, 44, pulled out of the film New Year's Eve, set to start filming this week in New York. She's being replaced by Katherine Heigl.
"She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter's father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no choice but to seek swift judicial intervention," her rep says.

Gabriel Aubry asked a court to recognize formally that he's the father of 2½-year-old Nahla and to establish that he'll share custody with ex-girlfriend Halle Berry.
Berry, 44, gave birth to Nahla in 2008 after dating Canadian model Aubry for about two years. The couple split last April.
In papers filed Dec. 30 in Los Angeles Superior Court, Aubry says that he and Berry already had signed documents relating to the paternity of Nahla, whose last name is listed as Aubry.

It was fun while it lasted!
Kim Kardashian, 30, and model Gabriel Aubry, 34, had a fast romance – a Lakers game, quiet nights at home and bonding over family – but the two have already gone their separate ways, PEOPLE confirms.
"They still talk," says a source close to the duo. "They were getting to know each other, but realized they might be better off just being friendly."

They haven't been dating long, but Kim Kardashian and her model beau Gabriel Aubry (yes, Halle Berry's ex!) are finding out they have some important values in common.
"He likes how family-oriented she is," says a pal. And likewise, Kardashian, 30, appreciates his devotion to his 2-year-old daughter Nahla, with Berry.
While Kardashian is "trying to take it slow," says the source, she and Aubry spent the Thanksgiving holiday together in L.A. and he met the whole Kardashian clan.
