Gabriel Aubry Gets $16K A Month From Halle Berry

Yesterday a judge signed off on a settlement agreement between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry. For the next 12 years Halle has to pay Gabriel $16K a month in child support and also has to pay him $115K in back support. Oh, and to top things off she has to pay for all his attorney fees. That is a nice amount of money for Gabriel who will earn almost $200K a year for simply taking care of his child half the time. He is not having to pay for school or insurance or any kind of child care so he probably doesn't have to work very much over the next decade to make himself a comfortable living. It is not like he is that much in demand so he better make sure he saves as much as he can before Nahla turns 18. Halle also had to promise that Olivier wouldn't beat the crap out of Gabriel anymore. That incident seems like forever ago. Oh, or when Halle said she wanted to move to Paris, which of course means she wouldn't have been able to shoot her new television show.

Wow. I would have Halle's bebeh for that much dough.

Good morning!

Violet said...

The V jrs would wipe me clean of 16k a month if I let them.
Morning / afternoon all.

sandybrook said...

I think that ass whupping probably has a lot to do with this, Halle. Revenge and all that. You and Olivier need to sit down and have a nice chat about him picking up a share of this bill.
Meanwhile cue up Kanye and Jamie.
Morning!

Steampunk Jazz said...

When you see the amount other baby mamas are getting, 16k is rather paltry, lol.
I cry REVERSE DISCRIMINATION!

OneEyeCharlie said...

Good Morning. Sleep is so bueno.

Heck, TTM, I would have Halle's baby for that kind of cash.

MISCH said...

Wait till she has to pay Olivier also

Just Another HR Lady said...

That's how child support works, she earns a lot more than him. And yes, no doubt there is an added bonus for getting Olivier to beat the crap out of her baby daddy.

She is one messed up mama.

Renoblondee said...

He deserves it.

Hammer_Girl said...

Gabriel can come be my kept bitch. He may have to eat ramen noodles, but I promise not to go bobble head crazy bitch on him.

Nutty_Flavor said...

He can't work as a model any more - no one would look at the clothes, only him, and the x% of the population on Halle's side wouldn't want to buy the product. (Personally, I don't want to buy any products Halle is selling, and I was once a fan.)

I don't believe Gabriel has much education, but now he's got 12 years to train for some other type of work.

Steampunk Jazz said...

I would have picked that guy for a babe too. That he is genuinely decent is a quandary for Halle. This toy isn't following the script of parasite ass kisser...
Morning Crew!
Getting a little g before work :-)

TalksTooMuch said...

Also, he's so pretty. Not my type whatsoever, but that hair tells me maybe LowKey?

Just Another HR Lady said...

Btw, in comparison that's kind of paltry...Katie Holmes gets $33k/month for Suri.

Nutty_Flavor said...

OK, have now looked it up. Gabriel golfs, and apparently shows up at various celebrity tournaments. He can be a golf pro. I'm sure lots of ladies (and some men) would be interested in hands-on lessons.

TalksTooMuch said...

I don't know that is true, Nutty. Celebrity models are the backbone of most of the larger campaigns. He still has that look

Steampunk Jazz said...

Blondes are not my thing but I would definitely let this guy eat crackers in MY bed ;D

fancyscreenname said...

she must have hidden some of her money doesnt seem like much.

Seven of Eleven said...

I feel like there's some bitter in Tuesday's coffee cup.

A settlement means both parties agree.

And "receiving $200k per year for simply taking care of his child" - it's a kid. In the spotlight because of her famous parents. Her crazy a** parents. I'm guessing not all of that money is going toward "Daddy & Me" classes as much as it going toward behavioral therapy to cope with crazy a** parents. But who knows.

sandybrook said...

They share custody so he's not getting the kind of money Katie gets for raising Suri almost exclusively plus some of her cash is hush money. Katie probs could have gotten a lot more.

Violet said...

In honesty, I would. It's the cheekbones that do it for me. I can only afford to pay him in some frozen lasagnes each month if it all goes tits up though.

Froggy England said...

Good god, he is really pretty.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Agree Seven, not to mention providing security for her protection. Any plot would start with "wait til she's at Daddy's walk up, then..." so he is going to have to live somewhere expensive...

Sherry said...

Damn he looks so pretty there. Wonder what Halle's other child looks like. Notice we hardly see Nalyah (or however you spell it) anymore? She was out there all the time for a while.

And yes this guy can def keep working. They have the older gentlemen modeling evening wear like tuxes and such. Or as powerful businessmen in some ad. Male models have a much longer shelf life.

Jessica Larson said...

He's one of the top male models, he not doesn't need money, he's got plenty of his own. I'm betting went pursued child support & legal fees to piss her off. Which considering the crap she pulled she more than deserves. I still think she just dated him, because she wanted a pretty baby & believed she would get one with him.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@TTM Oh, I agree with you that he looks great. But there's too much backstory that distracts from the product I'm trying to sell. Mel Gibson doesn't get many endorsements these days either - not to compare the two men's characters, but to make the point that if a celebrity makes some of the potential purchasers angry, they're not going to be booked for many jobs.

I would say this is particularly true of products being sold to women. In discussing Tom Cruise's box office problems with various male sci-fi fans over the weekend, I was struck by the fact that they had no idea that anything was going on/had gone on in his personal life. Whereas on the female-centered blogs, that's big news. Tom Cruise will not be booked for any sponsorships anytime soon.

Hammer_Girl said...

I have a hair thing too.

Froggy England said...

I agree, there is a cost associated with looking after this little girl, from where she lives to, to what school she attends, to what security is required and so on. It won't be cheap. Plus why should she live cheap? Her mother is a multi millionaire and worth an estimated 70 million. 200 k a year is nothing compared to that.

Ps, I can see why olivier wanted to beat the crap out of him, bit of the old green eyed monster.

TalksTooMuch said...

I thought you might, Dirty Bird. Asian dreads and all

Shelly Shell said...

I remember when she was on Oparh taking about pregnancy tests, etc. & had the same thought, Halle was with Gab to get a purdy babe. I will laugh if Nale grows up fug like the Willis girls or plus size like Beverly Johnson's daughter, you know that will just kill Halle.

TalksTooMuch said...

I don't think there is anything negative about him out there though, Nutty. Just Halle. The general perception of him here seems to be not-so-bright sperm donor and I think that's in the ballpark of how we perceive most models? I could be wrong

Froggy England said...

Can I respectfully suggest that a pretty babe/sperm donor is simply the icing on the cake of sleeping with that guy?

auntliddy said...

I think he can still get work. He's gorgeous! Easy on the orbs! Eye candy! Hubba hubba! ( just being silly)

CoBe said...

I get a little peeved when I read about how both parents are screwed up. What did Aubry do wrong? Assert his paternal rights? He did nothing wrong.

I'm shocked that she got half visitation. It's obvious she threw every bit of mud at him that she could come up with.

Halle is a professional victim who blames the men in her relationships for her inability to live a decent life.

In my opinion.

Best wishes to little Nahla.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@TTM I dunno. I think there are people who call him a golddigger, and Halle supporters (both of them) who think he mistreated their girl. Remember she accused him of being a racist during their custody spat.

At any rate, if I saw him modelling in a magazine, I'd think 'There's Halle Berry's ex. I wonder how he's doing these days. I wonder how their daughter is doing." And pay no attention to whatever it is he was selling.

Its just U said...

Halle put all this in place herself. She insisted hos home wasn't safe, and not of the standard she expects for her child.
He was made to upgrade on her say so, so she pays.
The paparazzi are dangerous and harmful to the child, so she pays for the security.
She tried to alienate the child from the consistent relationship with her father. Courts don't look kindly on that. So she pays.
She thought he would be a deadbeat and walk away. She didn't bet on him being a good Dad and actually loving the kid.
In an equal society the parent who earns more helps support the child with the parent who doesn't.

xLux said...

Her lige is always a drama, amd hasnt she broke up with oliver? Bet he keeps on cheating on her

Henriette said...

He earned it! He got his mug messed up by Berry's equally cray cray husband, so he deserves it.

Froggy England said...

Looking at the last pictures of nahlia, and I know it's hard to predict at that age, but if nothing goes wrong, she should grow up to me a very pretty if not beautiful woman. However you can't really tell till after the gawky teenage years are over, but she's a pretty child and she is growing up out of the public eye.

sugarbread maker said...

Halle wanted a good looking sperms donor to make a beautiful baby and she treated him as such. Thought she could just throw him away and order him in and out of Nahla life as she pleased because she had the money but courts didn't see it this way and Gabriel not as dumb as he looks. Just wait till she has to start paying Olivier because he does not make what she makes either.
Karma is a bitch.

MeanieRhysie said...

It shouldn't surprise me anymore ...but, man, it fucks me up when someone gleefully hopes a child will grow up to be ugly to *show* a parent! That is beyond fucked up!

Henriette said...

If CDAN is true, Berry's kid with Martinez is not biologically hers, so wonder if she will give him such a rough time for the dough. Don't think she was the fact she used a donated egg out.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Morning MeanieRhyse, (( hugs)), some people can really carry a grudge... :-D

Jessica Larson said...

Shell stated she would laugh, not that she wished it, big difference.

I've seen Beverly in interviews for years now & you know it gets her that her daughter is plus sized.

Cecilia00 said...

I have no problems with this. Women routinely get huge child support checks from make stars. Why shouldn't he?

Aeol said...

He actually works about as much as your average working male model. Male models typically work - and earn - less than female models. His income earnings from the year this settlement was based on was around $200K which is actually a very good living for most models. Not everyone can be a VS angel. So he may not be movie star rich (doubt Olivier is either at this point) but it's not like he's unemployable.

crila16 said...

She's gorgeous.

Topper Madison said...

Good lord they were an attractive couple. It's against the laws of nature to have that much beauty in a functional relationship, so I guess it was doomed from the start.

Catsup said...

I was at an indoor playground in Century City and I saw the most beautiful little girl and super, super hot dad...had no idea who he was, but figured he was "somebody." The next week, I was at the store and there they were on the cover of Knee Pads...both are stunning.

rajahcat said...

he's gorgeous

poppyfresh said...

Serves Halle right. She saw that man as a sperm donor & thought she could easily kick him to the curb when things fell apart. Well she thought wrong, to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. Ha.

rajahcat said...

he is a hot dad indeed

Gayeld said...

Bitter much, Ent? Gabriel has put up with a lot from that crazy bitch to have a relationship with his daughter. Good for him. Nahla needs at least one stable parent in her life.

N. Twinkie said...

Just because he put up with alot doesn't mean he deserves $16K a month from her. The kid doesn't need that much money.

Procrastibator said...

That should keep him in blow waves, highlights and tight jeans. Go dads!

discoflux said...

He could take that money, go live in a nice, inexpensive, rural community, not have to worry about paps, study a trade, and prepare for that gravy train to come to a stop.

Rose said...

It's not a salary for him. I would think a lawyer would know child support is for the child. Not all parents are douchebags who Culkin their kids money. He seems like a good Dad and good guy.

LottaColada said...

@Its Just U, +1

MeanieRhysie said...

Oh! She would laugh at the mother of the ugly child...that's way different! Thank you ever so much for straightening that out for me!

::eyeroll::

Jessica Larson said...

@Meanie-Oh, pulz! No one is forcing you to be on a gossip site, if you don't like the comments, go do something productive with your day.

MeanieRhysie said...

Productive like you, @Jessica? LOL

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Didn't even notice Halle was in that picture.

I would! No background check needed.

Jessica Larson said...

@Meanie-I never claimed to be productive. If you don't like comments or posters here no one is forcing you to be here, I'm sure your trailer could use a cleaning with some wet wipes.

MeanieRhysie said...

I suggest you do the same: you obviously did not like my comment, so why didn't you scroll on by, sweetie?

Have a great day!

bellaluna said...

Good. I'm glad the judge saw through her dirty attempts.

Shelly Shell said...

@Meanie-you're the one taking offense to comments, I think it's time for you to leave the Lie-Berry and take a walk around your trailor park on your rascal scoter.

MeanieRhysie said...

What's a scoter?

JSierra said...

OT but school shooting in Oregon. No deaths, thankfully.

auntliddy said...

Wait! THIS isnt productive??!!

auntliddy said...

Yes, its just you, and huge props to gabe that he fought to be a part of nahla's life, didnt take huge payout im sure was offered, and just does ordinary things with nahla, picking her up from school, going to playground. And i love Nahla beccause she always looks so happy and full of life! Always laughing, running and talking animatedly. She seems delightful.

auntliddy said...

Jess- oh yeah, johnson is not at all happy about her plus sized daughter, ive seen her too. Doesnt iman have another daughter who is much older and maybe is or was plus sized?

auntliddy said...

I would love to see Gabe, backlit, with huge white wings and some sort of cool outfit, walking down runway at vict secret. Oh, be still my heart.

fancyscreenname said...

@procrastibator
HA!

JSierra said...

AuntLiddy you just made my mouth water.

Count Jerkula said...

Get that cheddar, Bro!

I hope my ex marries a millionaire of some sort, so I can start getting support instead of paying it.

D Brown said...

Not a tax expert but my understanding is that child support is not tax deductible. In other words HB has to pay in after-tax dollars (i.e. has to earn $300K, pay $100K taxes and give $200K to GA). He doesn't have to pay taxes on the $200K.

Haywood Jablomee said...

Getting your ass kicked by a Frenchman not named Andre the Giant is just embarrassing.

RowdyRodimus said...

I guess I'm the only man in America that doesn't find Halle hot. I just never have. She ruined X-Men and my favorite part in Days of Futures Past was when she was killed before the timeline was reset.

Renoblondee said...

Rowdy, my husband does not find her hot either.

cricket said...

Serves her right. She was just going to use him as a sperm donor,and take off with the kid. She didn't plan on him being a decent guy who wanted to be involved in his child's life. Nahla always looks really happy when ever she's photographed with her Dad. She doesn't look all that happy when she is with Halle. I'm sure it won't be long until she is fighting with Oliver over custody of their baby.

Krissie said...

Iman also had a plus-size daughter but she had a gastric band put in and dropped most of the weight. I read about her just recently.

Anyway, Halle was a fool not to use a sperm donor. You really can't count on saying, "Okay, we made the baby, now go away and let me raise it by myself" to a boyfriend, which apparently was Halle's master plan. Not too smart.

I don't believe Gabriel will ever see this much money. Halle will fight this tooth and nail. I heard about a man who went to jail rather than split his fortune with his ex-wife (which was what the court ordered him to do). He said he would rather be locked up than give her anything. Halle strikes me as the same kind of person. (Although I doubt she'd go to jail, because she's famous.)

LowKey said...

Yup, I'd hit that. Like a Southern screen door in a hurricane.

Pogue Mahone said...

He should get a job.

Hegg said...

Officially it is 50/50 custody, but from what people have told me, he actually has his daughter far more than that. He is the one who scouted schools and picked out her school, takes her to occupational therapy (learning disablity or something), dance class etc etc. He is the primary parent in this case. To say otherwise or indicate that he is lazy is just really unfair.

Count Jerkula said...

@DBrown: You are correct. The recipient doesn't pay tax on child support.

Lisa said...

Did anyone notice that the judge did NOT set the amount she was to pay? They agreed to it between themselves. It was a settlement agreement that the judge signed off on.
Good grief people you all are thinking he put the screws to her and some stuff and here they are deciding on the amounts between themselves lol.

Seven of Eleven said...

Vitamin D apparently helps with "you all" syndrome.

TalksTooMuch said...

I thought you would, LowKey!

TalksTooMuch said...

Seven, are you...making fun of me? (Best Sandy from Grease impression)

Count Jerkula said...

@Lisa: Some states have a set formula that is adhered to. One attorney plugs in the #'s, send the results to the other attorney to look at and agree to.

If the parties don't agree like that here in NJ, then the Probation Dept handles it, and you both turn in tax returns, so they can plug in the formulas, and the money goes through them.

BitchieMitchie said...

Seriously- that kid has enough problems with some pretty fucked up parents-and now you wish her ugliness on top of that? Back off.

Fred66 said...

This is why the really SMART women like Sandra Bullock and Charlize Theron, adopted as single parents. They will never have to pay anyone a damn thing!

Count Jerkula said...

LOL @ Fred. Yeah, that is why they adopted as single parents. Would have nothing to do with an inability to have a healthy, long lasting relationship, or their need to accessorize.

Fred66 said...

@Count Jerkula. Regardless of their supposed inability to form lasting relationships, they are STILL a lot better off than Crazy Halle. And I'm not sure I wouls call Halles's latest relationship healthy.

Count Jerkula said...

Please dont think i'm trying to defend Halle, Fred. I'm just saying they aint smart for not having a father for their kids. I doubt either of them thought " I dont want to birth a child because I dont wanna pay some dude child support". More than likely they didn't want to be bothered w/ prgnancy, didn't want to gamble with their looks/body, wanted someone to love that was dependent on them w/o free will for a few years or they wanted nice little props for pap shots.

Your comment about them being smart was just blatant MANsogyny. #RiseAboveTheH8

Fred66 said...

@Count Jerkula: the correct terminology for MANsogyny is misandry, and please let me clarify something: I happen to think that ANYONE, male or as in most cases female, who brings a child into the world for the sole purpose of exploiting the child support laws is DESPICABLE. The way things are right now, these overly generous child support laws are encouraging this kind of abuse.
