Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry when they were a couple. The actress is now married to actor Olivier Martinez, whom Aubry physically attacked and was beaten up as a result.
Halle Berry, 48, has initiated legal proceedings against her ex-boyfriend, who is the father of her 7-year-old daughter Nahla Aubry, regarding child support payments. Currently, Berry pays 38-year-old Gabriel Aubry, $16,000 per month in child support, but most of the money is going towards his lavish upkeep. For example, abusive Aubry spends $1,000 on clothes and $2,000 on cars per month.
Berry seeks to have the payment reduced to $3,800 per month. The term is after all child support, not parent support. Aubry is an able bodied man, who can get a job (he used to be a sought after male model and he still has his looks). Berry and Aubry were never married. However, what is transpiring is the equivalent of Berry paying alimony. Furthermore, Berry has her daughter most of the time. Aubry is not shouldering any significant expenses in childcare. At one point Aubry had made $750,000 from modeling. Where did all his money go.
