Halle Berry ordered to pay child support

In the latest development of the ongoing legal battle between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry, Halle was ordered to pay her ex-boyfriend $20,000 a month for child support. Aubry first made the request for child support payments in May and it was finally granted when Halle was ordered to pay $250,000 a year (roughly $20,000 a month). Aubry also requested an additional $500,000 to cover legal costs from the ongoing battle, but it has not been confirmed whether or not this request will be granted. The legal battles over custody of four year-old Nahla began after the couple split in 2010, and their nasty conflicts have been headlining tabloids since. At the moment, the feuding ex-lovers share custody of their daughter and this is the first time child support requirements were instituted. This is definitely not the end of the legal issues for the two parents; the matter that’s currently heating up between the two is Halle Berry’s request to move to France with Nahla in order to live with her fiancé, Olivier Martinez. Aubry, obviously, is extremely opposed to the move. ~Stacy Raivich

    She picked Gabriel to be the father of her child and now she’s trying to take the baby away from him. Let this be a lesson – find out what a guy is like before you have a baby with him. Because once you share a child, he will be in your life forever and when he has your kid on visitation, you have no say over what happens when she’s with him.

    I feel bad for Gabriel Aubry. The guy is just trying to have a part in his daugther’s life and because Halle Berry is so famous and gets so much media attention, it seems like everyone sides with her.

    Good for Gabriel. He deserves to be in his daughter’s life and have shared custody and child support is just part of the package for all people…movie star or not. I really like Halle as a movie star but I don’t like what she’s trying to do to her ex husband… revenge is just hurting the child.

    My respect for Halle plummeted when she claimed she would never remarry and now will, but does Aubry really need $20,000 a month in child support? For what? I know many single mothers who would gladly be able to take care of their daughters for A YEAR with that kind of money.
    It’s hard to side with either party in this case. I still don’t know what made the relationship go sour but am VERY glad I chose the child-free existence more people should “adopt”.

    Halle has real big issues with x’s. She burns through them like car oil. He doesn’t want the baby to go to France, that’s not fair. Sure Gabriel will have a few bucks behind him, but he wants to be on the same continent and be able to visit..that’s a fathers right.

    What’s with these people. Again, see comments about Russel Brand vs. Katy Perry, no kids, but Russel could have taken Katy to the cleaners and he didn’t. Then see Depp and his xcommon law. she should get nothing but child support because they weren’t married but Depp is doing an honourable thing because she had his 2 kids and 14yrs of history between them, and giving her $100 million! Amicable split ups people! That looks better then this infighting which by the way your kids will know about!

    Hello… this is NOT about child custody, this is about Gabriel financial support. The guy is a male model with little in the way of career options and financial security. Once you live the high life it’s real hard to give it up. I feel sorry for him, not Halle… She’ll continue to make millions; whereas his only hope for security lies in Halle. If he were a real man he’d ask for support so he could go back to school to learn a profession so he could be financially independent, vs. living off her.

    i can understand,gabriel wanting to see his kid but 20,000 a month really!!!!!! he is just a money grubbing worm. who only cares about the money not the kid.

  8. Mary • June 22, 2012 @ 2:24 AM

    “Money grubbing worm”?? What do you know what he cares about. We certainly don’t begrudge the woman from getting support from the celebrity guy, so what’s the difference here? It’s not that he’s trying to support HIS standard of living, but he’s trying to support that of his daughter. Get a grip, in the celebrity world, 20 grand a month is peanuts. He’d be justified in asking for a lot more.

    Funny how this article is all factual and you guys make it all emotional. I know nothing of their lives but Halle Berry has to keep her money for the baby since she is the mother and really her acting career is going to the dogs. Woof!

    She should just die already.

  11. mandee • June 25, 2012 @ 8:05 PM

    spike, so should you.

    i agree, 20 000 is OBSCENE for child support. no baby needs that much money spent on them, its obviously just a ploy for the dad to get money for himself. what a pig.

  12. Garry • June 26, 2012 @ 11:55 PM

    Thank you MARY! Why is the GUY a money grabbing grub when he is asking for peanuts compared to what all this women who marry male celebrities demand? I mean $250,00 a year? I make a shade over than and I am a hard working professional raising a son by myself, not any celebrity, and trust me that does not allow you to leave any sort of extravagant lifestyle you can simply make yourself and your kid comfortable if you use your money wisely. And of the two HE is the better parent. Halle stooped so low as to insinuate that Aubry was molesting their daughter so she has to take the daughter away from him. What kind of parent does that? Halle has had so many abusive loser guys in her life that when she got a guy who did not abuse her she dumped him because he was not “man” enough and he was not pulling his weight because he was bringing in only about half a million annually to the union. That lady is damaged goods she should in no way be left alone to raise any child far less a young girl who will need a positive female role model. Gabriel, his family and Montreal is certainly better for Nahla the lion princess. Plus if you going to pic a French place to live u pick France? God forbid!
