Halle Berry (pictured) has apparently reached her wit’s end with her former baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry (pictured right). According to TMZ, the star of the CBS-TV sci-fi thriller “Extant” reportedly filed court documents asking a judge to reduce Aubry’s exorbitant monthly child support allowance from $16,000 to $3,000.
The former fashion model and beauty queen claims that Aubry, who is a model and actor by trade, has gotten a tad too comfortable in his newfound lifestyle of being supported by the actress and has not bothered to secure gigs at all. Instead, Berry contends that Aubry is just content living off her hard-earned money, and in doing so, is completely abusing the child support system.
Aubry is able-bodied, Berry states in the court papers, and is more than capable of securing work so that he, too, can contribute to their daughter’s, Nahla, lifestyle.
Berry and Aubry both share custody of 6-year-old Nahla and their support battle, which was fodder for the press, was a nightmarish one. Since their split in 2011, the relationship between Berry and Aubry has reportedly been that of vengeance, mud-slinging, and violence. Berry, who married actor Olivier Martinez (pictured left) last year, had to referee a fight between her husband and former lover last November. Reportedly, when Aubry showed up at Berry’s door for a custodial handoff, he reportedly pushed Martinez and it was on and popping between the men: Aubry sustained a broken rib, contusions on his face, and a possible head injury. Martinez reportedly suffered a broken hand and neck injuries. Aubry was arrested and booked for investigation of battery, a misdemeanor charge; he was released on $20,000 bail and given a December court date.
Meanwhile with regards to Berry and her all-too-present baby daddy woes, she is awaiting a hearing date.
