Halle Berry halved child support payments to her daughter's father Gabriel Aubrey, calling it extortion
54-year-old actress Halle Berry halved alimony payments to her former lover, 44-year-old fashion model Gabriel Aubrey. Now he will receive $ 8,000 from the star. The terms of the agreement were revised after Berry called child support extortion and said the old rules were outdated.
The couple, who started dating in 2006, have a 13-year-old daughter, Nala. Aubrey and Berry fought for custody of their daughter in court — even to the point of fighting. In 2014, the court ordered Holly to pay Gabriel $ 16,000 a month in alimony, as they raise their daughter together.
The actress will continue to pay for Nala's private school tuition and her health insurance. If Berry's annual income exceeds $ 1.95 million, she will have to pay additional alimony to Gabriel.
The former sweethearts also agreed to settle any future disputes with a private judge to avoid recourse to the judicial system. Holly and Gabrielle also agreed to share information about their annual income.
About a month ago, Berry wrote on social media that both parents should take financial responsibility for their children. She shared a shot with the caption "Women don't owe you a damn thing", which caused a strong reaction from her followers. Berry did not disclose the name of the person to whom the message was addressed, but she made it clear that she was talking about Aubrey.
It takes a lot of effort every day to pay. And by the way, it's wrong, and it's extortion!
— she wrote.
Halle Berry also has a seven-year-old son, Maceo, with ex-husband Olivier Martinez. Now the star is happy in a relationship with singer Van Hunt.
