Aubry's brief entanglement last November with Kim Kardashian has been cited as a major trigger point in the custody war, a development that's apparently not sitting well with the reality starlet. The Chicago Sun-Times says she's "amazed and extremely unhappy" over becoming embroiled in the badmouthing.
Halle, whose four-plus-year relationship with Gabriel ended in the spring of 2010, "did not want a reality star in Nahla's life," a source blabs to People. "She was very aggravated."
Camp Aubry, however, insists her aggravation was misguided.
"Gabriel wanted to make sure he dated someone for six months before he introduced them to his daughter," says an insider. "There was never for a second a thought by Kim or Gabriel that Nahla would ever go near cameras."
Kardashian, who is currently hot and heavy with New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries, feels that Halle has "repeatedly snubbed her" at red-carpet events and private gatherings, a pal tells the paper, adding that she finds the situation "nutty."
