Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie, who are working together on the film “Maude vs. Maude,” began to communicate closely. The actresses agreed on the basis of a difficult past: “We talked a lot about divorces and our exes. We’ve gotten closer, let’s just say,” Halle Berry said in an interview with Variety. At the same time, the actress noted that the beginning of their communication with Jolie was “difficult,” although she refused to name the reason for the conflict.
Both Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie have behind them scandalous public showdowns with former lovers. Halle Berry spent eight years suing her ex-husband Olivier Martinez over custody of their son Mateo, now nine years old. As a result, this summer the court ordered the actress to pay Martinez eight thousand dollars a month in alimony. Previously, she was required to pay 4.3% of her income, which exceeds $2 million, as “additional child support.” She must also pay for school tuition, health insurance and other expenses for the child. Also, Berry, whose net worth is $90 million, "voluntarily" agreed to contribute $55,000 toward Martinez's attorney fees.
In addition to her son, the actress has a 15-year-old daughter, Nala, with model Gabriel Aubry, with whom Halle Berry has also been suing for many years. The battle is over the amount of alimony that Aubrey demands from the Hollywood actress. In May, Halle Berry won a hearing, and the court reduced the amount of payments she must pay to her ex-boyfriend for the maintenance of her daughter. The litigation lasted 10 years.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have also been involved in a protracted legal battle over custody and financial disputes since their 2016 split. During these proceedings, both parties made accusations against each other. Public opinion is divided, but insiders say that Jolie is simply obsessed with revenge on her ex-lover and is turning her children and fans against him.
