Halle Berry's ex wants her to pay rent

Los Angeles - Gabriel Aubry reportedly wants ex-girlfriend Halle Berry to pay for his rent.

The 36-year-old male model - who has daughter Nahla, three, with the Catwoman actress - is apparently suing Halle for thousands of pounds of monthly maintenance which he wants to spend on a house.

According to TMZ.com, Gabriel is seeking between £9 500 and £12 600 a month in child support, and also wants Halle to cover the cost of taking Nahla to visit his family in his native Canada, and of buying her clothes.

But a source says the 45-year-old New Year's Eve star - who is said to be eyeing a move to France to be with boyfriend Olivier Martinez - plans to fight the request "tooth and nail" in the run-up to the hearing on April 9.

Collection

Meanwhile, Halle has taken time out from the long-running custody battle to team up with German footwear company Deichmann to launch her own shoe collection.

The 5th Avenue by Halle Berry range went on sale Monday, and features chunky wedges and gladiator sandals.

She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I think every woman would like to be involved in creating a shoe collection. My 5th Avenue shoes can easily be worn by every woman."
