(Newser) – Halle Berry will be paying more per month in child support than you probably do to, well, live your entire life. A judge last month approved a partial settlement between the actress and her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, ordering Berry to pay $16,000 per month to Aubry to support their 6-year-old daughter, Nahla, the AP reports. (We've helpfully done the math: That's $192,000 a year.) Berry will also be responsible for Nahla's tuition costs, a retroactive payment to Aubry of $115,000, and $300,000 to his attorneys to cover the cost of the couple's nasty 2012 custody dispute. They currently have equal custody, People notes.

I'm a Hallie fan. I would be all for paying mister, mister the court-approved rate retroactively. But, I would contest the rest and find me a most highly recommended professional nanny who would take her daughter to visit daddy-o and sit there and supervise her (all day, all night, the weekend... a month). The nanny would come far cheaper, plus daddy-o could come and go if he wished -- alone and on his own pocket change. Hallie, it's either that, or give him a job instead, and you would probably come out cheaper. Send him to college in lieu! [$16,000/month sounds like rent, clothes, furniture... and, oh... a car note. Let's not forget 7,000 of those dollars for his savings account. Children are actually low overhead in looking at $16,000/month.]

Really? Most people won't pay more than 192k to live their entire life? Sounds a bit low.... and by a bit low it sounds like unless you live in Detroit and pass away at 45 that is probably totally untrue.

Old story, usually about the father: "The screwing she gets for the screwing she got.!" LOL
