Halle Berry ordered to pay $16,000 a month in child support to her ex

Today
Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry in 2009.

Co-parenting while living apart can be an expensive business.

A judge has directed Halle Berry to pay ex Gabriel Aubry $16,000 per month in child support, according to court documents filed May 30 in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by E! News.

Berry, 47, and Aubry, 38, currently have 50-50 joint custody of 6-year-old daughter Nahla.

They split up in 2010 and it wasn't always smooth sailing for the pair when it came to hammering out their custody arrangement, with Aubry successfully blocking Berry's request in 2012 to be allowed to relocate to France with Nahla and then-fiance Olivier Martinez.

Court documents filed May 30 state that Berry's reported gross income for nine months leading up to Sept. 30, 2012, was nearly $4.7 million, while Aubry's gross-expense income totaled $192,921 for the 12 months ending Oct. 31, 2012.

Not bad, but his Oscar-winning ex made significantly more.

Per the May 30 filing, Berry was ordered to pay Aubry $16,000 per month, starting Jan. 1, 2013 and also must pay retroactive support totaling $115,000 (a figure both parties have agreed on) and $300,000 for Aubry's legal fees.

The actress is also footing the bill for 100 percent of Nahla's private school tuition and 50 percent of any medical expenses the child might incur that aren't covered by her mom's family insurance plan.

Berry and Martinez, whom she married July 13, 2013, welcomed son Maceo last October.

    Berry's sex appeal was on display as she promoted her 2004 film "Catwoman." Audiences were less impressed once they entered the theaters, and the role scored her a 2005 Razzie for worst actress. Unlike most recipients of the ignominious award, Berry proved herself a class act when she showed up in person to accept. "If you aren't able to be a good loser, you're not able to be a good winner," she told the crowd.

    One of Berry's most heartfelt personal projects was to portray actress Dorothy Dandridge, the first African American woman to be nominated for an Oscar. It took Berry six years to bring the story to the small screen for HBO, but her turn in the starring role was flawless, and her other role -- as the TV movie's producer -- established her as a force in Hollywood on both sides of the camera.

    Director Robert Townsend loves to send up black stereotypes, but you could hardly accuse his 1997 film "B.A.P.S." of tackling the obvious. As wannabe actress Nisi, Berry costarred in this comedy about race and the high life in Beverly Hills. Berry and Natalie Desselle, right, find themselves living with an aging millionaire (Martin Landau) and learning to become Black American Princesses, hence the title. An usual choice for Berry, but proof she wanted a varied choice of roles.

    Halle Berry's first major role came in 1991, when she played drug addict Vivian in Spike Lee's "Jungle Fever." The down-and-dirty role (literally -- she reportedly refused to bathe for days before filming) established Berry early on as a serious talent and much more than a pretty face. The cred was doubly important because of Berry's background as a beauty queen and Miss USA runner-up.
