Halle Berry is filthy rich, so paying $16,000 a month for child support is kinda like spending $1 on the daily paper for her. Good thing, because a California judge ruled that she’ll need to do that until her daughter Nahla, who she had with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, turns 19 or graduates high school – whichever comes first.
A Los Angeles court on May 30 ordered the Oscar-winning actress to pay $16,000 per month to support their daughter Nahla, 6, until she turns 19 years old or graduates from high school, whichever comes first. The court also awarded Aubry $115,000 in retroactive support.
The couple share equal custody of their daughter, according to court documents.
I mean, look – I get that these rates are determined by how much you make, but in what universe can you even possibly spend $16,000 on a child every month? Especially considering Aubry doesn’t even have Nahla full-time, and presumably will only be with her for two weeks (if their custody is equal)??? It’s disgusting, really – it’s like she’s paying to support Aubry and the lifestyle he’s accustomed to rather than doing anything in the best interest of the kid. Now, if he wants to put $10,000 of that per month away in a trust fund for Nahla, that’s something different, but something tells me this is just going to be money to let him live a life of luxury and never have to work. Ugh, Halle better hope things don’t go south with baby #2.

This is a bit of a weird one, I have to admit, and I don’t really know where to start. A homeless woman in Los Angeles has filed an insane lawsuit against a bunch of Hollywood stars including Amanda Bynes, Halle Berry, Armie Hammer and the entire Disney corporation… just to get them all into a courtroom so they’ll listen to her idea for a script. WHAT?
Let’s let TMZ explain…
Jo Anne Vandegriff — who describes herself as homeless — freely admits the suit is a ploy to get everyone in a room so she can sell her 2,000-page original Civil War romance mini-series, “Heaven’s Angels.”
Vandegriff describes her script as “an extraordinary work in its length, complexity, and scope, though not yet a masterpiece work.”
Vandegriff is targeting Disney because she wants to open up the studio — which she claims produces lily-white content — to Black and Hispanic females.
She doesn’t apologize for using the legal system to make a buck, because, as she says in the lawsuit, “a mini-series of this nature only comes along once every twenty to thirty years.”
So why sue Halle? Vandegriff wants her in the leading role. As for Amanda … it would be a great comeback for her. And Armie … he could finally be a leading man (and rid himself of the “Lone Ranger” stink — that’s our take).
And Vandegriff promises her script will help stimulate the economy … and promote “peace and harmony, health and happiness.”
Again, California’s legal system is a complete joke and we know it, but how is this even going to make it to court? How is this a real thing that isn’t just thrown out immediately for being absolutely ridiculous? WHAT IS HAPPENING IN LOS ANGELES?
Also, I feel particularly bad for Amanda here. She’s just getting her life together and then some asshole wants to pull her back into a load of bullshit. Ugh.

Let’s take a look at what celebs were wearing this week and dub a “winner” for BEST, WORST, and WTF.

Halle Berry is having a good week! First the news went out that she’s going to star in her own supercool-sounding CBS drama. And now she just gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Sunday (yesterday). This is the second child for Ms. Berry, daughter Nahla being the first. Here’s what People is reporting:
Olivier hasn’t left Halle’s side. Nahla visited her baby brother earlier today.
Ms. Berry is 47. She became pregnant with her second child at age 46.
~Congrats Halle~ Glad you plopped out that baby. You looked way ready.

Halle Berry is going to star in a drama for CBS next summer. Does anyone find this surprising? Halle Berry seems like a movie star to me. You know, A-list, fancy-ass, actual “movie star” movie star. But I guess those bills gotta get paid somehow. And it seems like most of the best writing is on TV now. It sounds like it could be a really interesting show. From ABC News:
The Oscar-winning actress will headline “Extant,” a 13-episode thriller. Berry will play an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. Her experiences lead to events that change the course of history.
The series is being made in partnership with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, which made last summer’s surprise hit for CBS, “Under the Dome.” CBS announced “Extant” in August.
In her personal life, Ms. Berry is busy as well. She’s due to give birth soon to a baby boy and she just married Olivier Martinez in July. I’m not a Halle Berry fan or anything, but her show like something I’d watch. I’m down with Oscar winning actresses in space.

In what is a bit of happier news, I suppose, the reports were correct and Halle Berry married her longtime fiance and father of her miracle baby Olivier Martinez at Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France on Saturday. It was a small, chill ceremony and some sneaky paparazzo took the image above while hiding in some bushes, I suppose, and then sold it to US Weekly, who published the following:
Sources tell Us that the bride and groom first exchanged vows in a civil ceremony performed by a local mayor at around 4:15 p.m., and then had a religious ceremony in the chapel on the grounds of the Chateau at 5:30 p.m.. Around 60 guests, including Martinez’s brother, Vincent, and mother, Rosemarie, were in attendance.
“White marquees were put up, and everyone was very discreet because it was a show business wedding,” a local tells Us of the nuptials, which also made use of several white limousines. “But generally it was pretty down-to-earth.”
Which is not to say it wasn’t a great party. Following the ceremony in the chapel, wedding guests enjoyed a celebratory dinner, followed by a fireworks display and dancing. “They all partied long into the night,” a source tells Us, noting that the music could be heard until around 1 a.m. local time.
I doubt Halle did all that much “partying” considering she’s getting well into her second trimester of pregnancy, but I’m sure it was a lovely time and congrats to them, etc.
