Halle Berry to Now Pay Over $16,000 in Child Support

Halle Berry custody battle

At the end of a lengthy child support battle with her ex, Gabriel Aubrey, the Los Angeles Superior Court has ordered that Halle Berry must now pay a hefty amount of child support each month.

Berry, the Oscar winning actress for her role in the 2001 film Monster’s Ball, has been recently ordered to pay over $16,000 a month in child support to provide for her 6-year-old daughter, Nahla.

The settlement was finalized at the very end of May, and Berry must now pay the large sum of money each month until Nahla turns 19 or until she graduates high school, whichever comes first.

In addition to the monthly payments, the court has also ordered that Berry retroactively pay $115,000 in child support, as well as another $300,000 to cover Aubrey’s legal fees. Both parents will be required to divide costs of health care, but Berry is solely responsible for paying for Nahla’s tuition.

The child custody and support battle between the two, who first met in 2005 and then split in 2010, has been a contentious one, to say the least. In 2012, tensions erupted when a fight broke out between Aubrey and Olivier Martinez, Berry’s then-fiance, when Aubrey dropped off the 4-year-old Nahla at Berry’s home.

The legal battle between the two also includes Nahla’s nanny filing a restraining order against Aubrey, as well as Berry wishing to relocate Nahla to France. Since the end of the custody dispute in 2011, Berry and Aubrey have been sharing equal custody of their daughter.
