Halle Berry Child Support Settlement
Halle Berry's checkbook is about to get a workout ... she's going to start paying baby daddy Gabriel Aubry $16,000/month in child support -- which comes to almost $200K a year.

A judge signed off on a settlement involving their custody dispute over 6-year-old Nahla. 

L.A. Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon also ordered Berry to pay Aubry a retroactive payment of $115,000.  And get this ... she also has to pay him $300,000 in attorney's fees.

Who knew ... lawyers are more expensive than kids.
