Gabriel Aubry wants lots and lots more of Halle Berry’s money. His putative reason is so he can properly care for the divorced couple’s four-year old daughter Nahla. Aubry is looking to “substantially increase” the child support payments he receives from Berry each month, according to Radar Online. Aubry didn’t have an opportunity to have the case heard on Thursday, instead a continuance was granted by the judge.
Berry and Aubry split in 2010 after five years together and have battled over their daughter ever since. Often it seems that they both use Nahla as a weapon to harm each other. More drama looms in the future it seems as Berry has made it clear she’d like to relocate to France to be with her fiancé, Oliver Martinez. This is, of course, something Aubry opposes and intends to hash out in court if necessary.
At this point Aubry is required to have supervised visits with his daughter and no overnight visits are allowed. This is because Aubry has a violent temper and the courts as well as Child Protective Services have deemed him to be a marginal parent, at best. One is led to question why he receives ANY money from Berry at all.
Do you think the custody agreement is in Nahla’s best interest? Should Aubry be awarded more money for a child he sees rarely? Which parent is really using Nahla for leverage here? Certainly they both seem to hold Nahla’s interests well behind their own. Is Aubry a violent Lothario trying to rip off Berry? Is Berry a bitter bitch who is using parental alienation to hurt Aubry. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
