There’s a nasty rumor going around about the father of Halle Berry’schild. One tabloid is claiming Gabriel Aubry is pissing his ex-off because he’s living off her dime. I don’t believe this, but the person who probably purposely leaked this story isn’t trying to convince me.
Star magazine reports:
Halle Berry’s unemployed baby daddy, French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, doesn’t know much about making money – but he sure knows how to spend it.
In June, a judge ordered the Oscar winner to pay her ex $20,000 a month in child support. Apparently you need an allowance like that when spend $11,000 on your daughter’s fourth birthday party – as
Gabriel bragged in court, according to a source. He dropped ‘a thousand on the cake alone,” says the insider. “The money Gabriel spent would pay for an entire year of preschool!”
Beautiful Halle, 45, has been supporting her lazybones ex, 36, since they split in April 2010, and, as the friend points out,”it is really hard for her to watch how he spends money that he didn’t earn.” To add insult to injury, Gabriel doesn’t even take modeling jobs when he’s offered them. “He just lives off Halle,”says the friend.
In Gabriel’s defense, hasn’t he been a successful model for several years and owns a restaurant in New York? Yeah, I know, the economy is bad, but still. It’s not like he’s been sitting around, scratching and surviving while waiting for Halle’s check to come.
