MONTREAL -- A Montreal auction house was forced to cancel the highly publicized sale of items that purportedly belonged to Halle Berry because the Hollywood star didn't even own them.

Lawyers representing Berry notified the Montreal Auction House on Saturday demanding it cancel Sunday's scheduled event.

"This morning (Sunday)... the auction house cancelled the auction," said a statement issued by Berry's legal team.

The auction house posted an apology on its website and said the items, including a pair of nail clippers, a hairbrush and a queen-sized bed, actually belong to Gabriel Aubry, Berry's Quebec ex-boyfriend.

They will now be put up for sale on July 21, a delay it attributed on a prerecorded phone message to "legal reasons."

On its website, the auction house said none of the objects has any association with Berry.
