Currently, Halle Berry is paying Gabriel Aubry $16K per month in child support for their daughter, Nahla. Well, the ‘Extant’ star has had enough of that. She filed documents requesting the court slash the child support payments to just $3K per month. RELATED: Halle Berry dishes on being a working mom.
TMZ reports that Halle claimed in her legal documents:
Gabriel has stopped working and is content to live off of the child support, and that’s an abuse of the system.
She notes Gabriel is perfectly capable of getting a job … and by reducing the support it will allow 6-year-old Nahla to live a comfortable life … supplemented by his income.
They have joint physical and legal custody, so each parent has Nahla 50% of the time. Good luck with that, Halle. If that argument worked, don’t you think a whole lot of fathers would have made the same argument about the mother of their children when it comes to child support payments?
On one hand, $16K a month sounds like an outrageous amount of money. Remember the point of child support, however: the child is supposed to live in the same manor as if they were with the wealthy parents, so wealthy non-custodial parents can’t just leave their kids living in a dump while they live it up. With that reasoning, $16K makes sense. At least ‘Extant’ was renewed for another season! Halle may have had better luck if she was unemployed.
