Halle Berry to pay ex a hefty sum in child support settlement
Halle Berry and ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey have reached a hefty settlement in their child support case, according to reports out Monday.
Los Angeles Superior Court judge Scott Gordon approved the agreement on May 30 saying that the Oscar-winning actress would pay Aubry, the father of her 6-year-old daughter Nahla, $16,000 a month (or nearly $200,000 a year) to support their little girl, according to the Associated Press.
Berry is also expected to pay Nahla’s tuition, and the two would split her health care expenses. The payments will continue until their daughter turns 19 or graduates from high school, whichever comes first, Yahoo Celebrity said.
The “X-Men: Days of Future Past” star, 47, is also expected to pay Aubry a retroactive payment of $115,000 and $300,000 in attorneys fees, AP said.
The former couple met on a Versace shoot in 2005 and went public in early 2006. They dated for two years before the actress gave birth to Nahla in 2008.
She and Aubry broke up in 2010 and have been embroiled in the dispute since 2012, when a judge blocked Berry from moving Nahla to France with her and Olivier Martinez, Berry’s third husband, whom she married in France in July 2013.
The “Extant” star and Martinez welcomed son Maceo together back in October.
