An auction house postpones the sale of personal items such as a hairbrush and nail clippers after receiving notification that the items did not belong to the 'X Men: Days of Future Past' actress.
A Canadian auction house was forced to postpone a sale of personal items after receiving a cease and desist letter from Halle Berry. The Hollywood Reporter noted that 400 items, including an antique sofa, a queen-sized bed, a zebra skin rug, a hairbrush and nail clippers, were going to be sold at the auction.
The items actually belonged to Berry's former boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, instead of the "X Men: Days of Future Past" actress. The auction, which was scheduled to take place in Montreal on Sunday, was finally postponed.
"No items were used by her, nor were any items provided by her or any agent of hers for the auction. We apologize to her (Berry), and to the public, for the error. All goods were and are the property of Mr. Gabriel Aubry only," the auctioneer stated on its website. The auction has been rescheduled for July 21.
Berry, who owns a condo in Old Montreal, broke up with Aubry in 2010. The couple has a daughter together. Berry is currently expecting her first child with her fiance Olivier Martinez.
The couple was spotted leaving Angelini Osteria restaurant in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday. The actress was all smiles as she held hands with her French beau. She wore a comfortable-looking asymmetrical dress, a pair of flip-flops and sunglasses. Martinez opted for a brown shirt and a pair of jeans.
