Halle Berry Seeking Reduction In  Child Support Payments To Ex

After a four-year long ugly custodial dispute that ended with a Los Angeles judge ordering Halle Berry to pay $16,000 a month in child support plus cover her ex-boyfriend's legal fees, which amounted to $300,000—the 47-year old actress recently filed legal documents asking the judge to significantly reduce her child support obligation.

Berry, who reportedly made approximately $4.7 million in 2013, said she would prefer to send $3,000 a month to her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, who according to court documents made about $192, 921 last year.

With child support payments that add up to $200,000 annually, Berry argues the father of their 6-year-old daughter, Nahla, is abusing the system because he

is solely depending on her monthly child support payments—and has ceased actively seeking employment—which is an alleged abuse of the system. ­­

Under family law guidelines, Berry has been determined to be the primary breadwinner. She earns substantially more than her Aubry, a French-Canadian model.

Since their custody dispute came to an end in spring 2011, both parents have shared equal custody of Nahla while Berry now seeks to relocate Nahla to France.
