Halle Berry's Ex

Wants A FORTUNE

In Child Support

EXCLUSIVE

Gabriel Aubry
is asking the judge in his custody war with Halle Berry for a half a million bucks in attorney's fees, and $20,000 a month in child support, TMZ has learned.

Gabriel was in court this morning, expecting to argue his case for the huge increase in child support, but the case was continued because the paperwork wasn't filled out properly.  Gabriel was extremely upset the matter was put off.

Sources tell us ... Gabriel believes he's entitled to the money because he needs a proper environment to care for 4-year-old Nahla. 

As we first reported, Halle wants to move with the child to Paris, which would have a direct impact on Gabriel's request for additional support.

I thought you had to have custody to get child support. She has primary custody - case closed.

He should get it. The only reason he had attorney's fees was because Halle tried to keep him from seeing his daughter. If it doesn't cause a hardship for her, financially, he shouuld have that much to support their daughter.

its a fact    

This guy is a douchebag, it's a shame too. Such a beautiful little girl. Did he quit working as soon as she got preggers? Riding the Halle Berry money train. Here is what I think, If you have a 50/50 parenting split, then NO child support. he doesn't deserve it.

"but the case was continued because the paperwork wasn't filled out properly. " translated, the Californian Celebrity Court judge and Halle's were caught off guard and need some time to get their strategy sorted it out and turn the tables back on Gabe. So Gabe, hold on to your seat and get read for a new onslaught of accusations and allegations... They're going to bring those bitches back from child protection and hit you up with charges that will make your head spin and empty your wallet defending yourself in court.---
SO GET READY BUDDY, IT'S ON.

Without men, women could never get pregnant or have children.
She should be thanking him for the magic seed of life he gave her and the children he gave her, as any good wife and mother would be ;)

He is NOT nor was he EVER married to Halle Berry so he doesn't deserve "HUSBAND BENEFITS." I guess Gold Diggers come in all forms, I put him in the same category with the rest of them!

I hope he gets it. Women have been playing this game for far too long and the man usually gets the shaft.

TMZ, your bias is showing again. 20,000 is nothing compared to what other celebs are paying, and it's her own doing. She picked him to be a sperm donor and then let her crazy loose on him.

He deserves it for all the times she has dragged him into court with lies and he had to defend himself! Also $20,000 a month is a bargain considering how rich she probably is. If he had the money she would be going after even more than that!

Stephen Kolodny seems to be "RIGHT ON TOP OF THINGS"!!! Ole Clueless isn't going to receive that kind of money. HE'S NOT THE "PRIMARY" CUSTODIAL PARENT!!! I guess HIS "RENT" IS DUE and Halle Berry is no longer paying his living expenses. The court is only going to authorize payment of the "reasonable" portion of his legal bills. The portion related the CPS investigation, he'll probably have to pay himself.

Smh     

Black women are so blinded by white men. They are just so happy a white man showed them attention that they become giddy like a child. Smh when will we overcome?

Halle is forever tainted. Heck, I'm surprised Gabriel likes adult women.
