Halle Berry wants to cut off jobless baby daddy's allowance

17 October 2014, 10:08

Los Angeles - Halle Berry wants her child support payments slashed by 80%.

The X-Men: Days of Future Past star was ordered to pay former partner Gabriel Aubry $16 000 a month by a court in May but she has now filed documents asking to reduce the payments to just over $3 000 a month because she claims the model - with who she has six-year-old daughter Nahla - has stopped working and is living entirely from the money he receives from her.

According to TMZ, Halle notes in the documents 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 the reduced payments will still allow Nahla to live a comfortable life, supplemented by his own income.

During the hearing earlier this year, 48-year-old Halle - who also has 12-month-old son Maceo with husband Olivier Martinez - was ordered to make the hefty payments to Gabriel until their child turns 19 or graduates from high school, whichever happens first.

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 Gabriel got into a violent altercation Olivier.

The French actor and Gabriel reached a mutual decision not to pursue criminal charges for Nahla's sake after Gabriel originally filed for a restraining order against Olivier, claiming he had threatened to kill him during the dispute in November 2012.

The row stemmed from Gabriel blocking Halle from moving to France with their daughter to escape attention from the paparazzi.
