The custody battle between Halle Berry and her ex boyfriend Gabriel Aubry gets worse and worse as the days go on and more stories come out. But several sources close to the Hollywood actress tell PEOPLE that things between the former couple got really bad around Christmastime.

Read more below:

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.”

According to the source, when Berry tried to calm down her daughter, Aubry grew impatient. “He got Nahla and forced her into the car,” adds the source, who says that Berry was extremely upset by the incident and that things between the exes – who had at one point been on friendly terms – immediately disintegrated.

Other sources close to Berry, 44, say a similar episode played out several subsequent times, including one incident in which Nahla appeared “traumatized,” according to a Berry source, after a visit with her father. They claim such episodes led Berry to fear for Nahla’s well-being. A rep for Berry had no comment on the claims.
