Halle Berry allegedly wanted to move with her daughter to France because her actor fiance Olivier Martinez wants to leave the US.

The 'Cloud Atlas' star - who recently came to an amicable custody agreement with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, 36, following a bitter battle over their four-year-old daughter Nahla that ended in a physical fight between him and Olivier - was reportedly eager to relocate because the French born actor is homesick.

A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com: ''The main reason that Halle wanted to uproot Nahla from Southern California, where her father, Gabriel Aubry, currently lives, is because Olivier doesn't want America to be his primary residence anymore.

''Olivier's family and friends all live in France and he is desperate to move back there. Yes, Halle did like the fact that France has strict privacy laws that govern the press, but that wasn't the reason for the proposed move. The judge overseeing the custody dispute between Halle and Gabe didn't think it was in Nahla's best interest for her to be moved halfway around the world to a foreign country, mainly because contact with her father would have drastically cut.''

Halle, 46, and Gabriel have now reached an ''amicable agreement'' and are hoping to move forward for the sake of Nahla.

A source said: ''All parties wanted what was best for Nahla and that was the main goal of the settlement. All three of the adults are moving on and have vowed to never let something like this ever happen again.''
