Halle Berry in child support deal

A judge has approved a settlement between Hollywood star Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend over child support payments for their six-year-old daughter.

The agreement approved by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon on May 30 calls for Berry to pay ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry 16,000 dollars a month (£9,500) or nearly 200,000 dollars (£119,000) a year to support their daughter. The Oscar-winning actress will also pay for their daughter's tuition, but the former couple will split health care expenses.

The order also calls for Berry to pay her ex-boyfriend a retroactive payment of 115,000 dollars (£68,400) and 300,000 dollars (£180,000) to his lawyers to cover the costs of their custody dispute.

Berry and Aubry, a model, were involved in a custody dispute in 2012, and a judge blocked her from moving their daughter to France.

Judge Gordon's order only affects child support payments.
