Previously, Halle Berry responded to trolls who said she couldn’t keep a man, and also addressed paying child support. Berry noted that child support is “wrong and it’s extortion!” Now, news surfaced noting that Berry has had the amount of child support she has to pay per month slashed in half to $8,000.
Berry has been paying child support since splitting with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, who she has a daughter with. The split turned out to be a nasty one, and found both parties in a battle that resulted in Berry paying $16,000 per month in child support for her daughter Nahla. Berry has reportedly been making the payments since 2014.
Now, the payments which Berry once referred to as “extortion” have been reduced to $8,000. Berry will also have to pay $85,000 in retroactive child support, and continue to cover the cost for Nahla’s private school tuition and health insurance.
