It seems as though Halle Berry is fed up with her ex Gabriel Aubry living off the child support she’s required to pay him. According to TMZ, Berry pays Aubry $16,000 a month for their daughter, Nahla, even though they have joint custody.

Berry recently filed court documents asking a judge to reduce the monthly payment to $3,000, saying that Aubry isn’t working and is comfortable living off child support. According to the report, Berry feels that Aubry shouldn’t have any problem finding a job and is abusing the system.


Berry has been paying Aubry the $16,000-a-month payment since June, when a Los Angeles judge also signed off on the custody dispute over the 6-year-old. In addition to the monthly payment, Berry was also required to pay a retroactive amount of $115,000 and $300,000 in Aubry’s attorney fees. 

Berry, 47, gave birth to Nahla in 2008 after dating Aubry for two years. The couple split in April 2010.
