Actress Halle Berry has spent years complaining about the “excessive” pensions she pays to insist that no women - or no man, for that matter- should be obliged to provide his ex-partner with an amount of money that far exceeds what is necessary and reasonable to help raise the child they have in common.
The actress reached the last agreements of the divorce that began when she separated from Olivier Martinez in 2015 and will begin to collect a bill in her bank account. The biggest hurdle they had faced throughout the negotiations was reaching a formal agreement on custody and support of her 9-year-old only child. Now they have finally achieved it, but the final result is most likely not what she expected.
During the divorce, there were several situations that could not be clarified regarding the custody of Maceo, to such an extent that the dispute legal extended until 2023, when after eight years of legal disputes, Berry and Martinez officially ended their marriage.
Halle will pay $8,000 a month to her ex and an additional 4.3 percent of all income she receives above $2 million, plus cover the the cost of his private school, his extracurricular activities and his health insurance.
According to legal documents that the TMZ portal has had access to, the former couple will share legal and physical custody of the minor, who will go to a counselor individually and as a family.
Both Halle and her other daughter, Nahla, are welcome to join him, but Van Hunt, Halle's current partner, will not be able to attend. Halle will have custody of Maceo on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Olivier will have custody of the rest of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, alternating weekends.
Halle has a 15-year-old daughter with model Gabriel Aubry, to whom she also passes another pension. In 2021 she finally got it cut in half the monthly amount that he has been passing to the father of his eldest daughter since 2014 to lower it to $8,000, with the condition that that amount would increase if his income exceeds $1.95 million in any year. However, a few months ago he managed to A judge will modify that last clause to raise it up to 4.9 million.
