Halle Berry has filed documents asking for her child support payments to be cut down by 80 percent, it’s been reported.
The 48-year-old Extant star has claimed that her ex-partner Gabriel Aubry is living off what she pays him, and is more than capable of getting a job.
Halle allegedly pays her ex $16,000 a month, but wants it brought down to $3,000, because she has reportedly claimed that he has given up work.
According to TMZ, Berry has already filed documents asking for the payments to be reduced.
Halle apparently noted that her 39-year-old former partner – with who she shares equal joint custody of their little girl – is “perfectly capable” of getting a job and that the reduced payments will still allow their six-year-old child Nahla to live a comfortable life.
A judge in Los Angeles also awarded the Canadian mode $115,000 in back payments and $300,000 in lawyer’s fees. The duo split in April 2010 after two years of dating and reached an initial custody agreement in late 2012 after Aubry got into a violent altercation with Olivier Martinez.
The French actor and Aubry reached a mutual decision not to pursue criminal charges for Nahla’s sake after Aubry originally filed for a restraining order against Martinez, claiming he had threatened to kill him during the dispute in November 2012. The row stemmed from Aubry blocking Berry from moving to France with their daughter to escape attention from the paparazzi.
