George Clooney says that before he got married & had kids, his life was 'pretty empty'
When George Clooney got engaged to then-Amal Alamuddin, did you think it would last? I didn?t. I thought it was fun and interesting when they got married, and I thought they would get tired of each other pretty quickly. But here we are, six and a half years after their Venice wedding, and they seem? completely fine. He supports her work, she supports his work. They have two babies and he seems like a shockingly hands-on father. They seem pretty chilled out, to be honest. Turns out, George and Amal are those ?when you meet the right person, everything works out? kinds of people. George chatted with the Today Show about Amal, his marriage and fatherhood. Some highlights:

What fatherhood has given him: ?Oh, everything. (It?s given me) a sense of belonging and a sense of home and unconditional love ? all the things that you were hoping you could get from a really good career and a dog. You realize that this is a lot more than that.?

Why his family life works: ?I found the right person to have them with. There are some people, their goal was, ?I have to have children.? Mine wasn?t. I wasn?t looking at life, going, ?My life will be unfulfilled without children. I felt like I had a pretty full life. Then I met Amal and realized that my life had been pretty empty. And then when you throw these two kids in there, then suddenly you realize how incredibly empty it was.? With a family, ?it fills it all up, it makes it fun.?

George & Amal are a team: ?We?ve been a team really since we met. The most we?ve ever been apart is three or four days, never had a fight, which people always get ticked off when I say. You know, we?ve been married seven years. We have a really wonderful life together. We?re both busy, but we?re both very involved in each other?s lives, which is nice.?

He never thought he?d be married & with kids in his 50s: ?I would have considered 50 practically dead. Now, I?ll be 60 in a couple of months. Now I?m like, ?60?s not so old; 60?s young, really.? I?m OK. I?m fine with all of it. The number 70 will put a hitch in my giddyup a little bit, but I think the rest of it I can handle.?

[From Today]

I know that he?s just talking narrowly about himself but some of this got on my nerves! ?Then I met Amal and realized that my life had been pretty empty. And then when you throw these two kids in there, then suddenly you realize how incredibly empty it was.? Dude was an Oscar-winning actor, a director, a tequila-company co-founder, father to a pig, owner of a gorgeous Italian mansion in Como and rich beyond belief, with tons of friends and a steady stream of girlfriends, all before he met Amal. He acts like his life was nothing, that it didn?t have any meaning, that it was all nothingness and an empty void. I mean, I?m happy that he enjoys fatherhood and marriage so much, truly, because I had no idea he would be good at it. But he?s being kind of sanctimonious about it and it?s annoying to people who are childfree by choice or necessity.

Halle Berry's child support payments to Gabriel Aubry were cut in half

Halle Berry's child support payments to Gabriel Aubry were cut in half
Last month, Halle Berry made some shady comments about how she doesn?t ?owe? men anything, and there was some conversation about how, actually, California family courts have repeatedly ordered Halle to pay one man, her ex, Gabriel Aubry. I wondered, at the time, why Halle was even referencing the Aubry drama (however obliquely) considering she spent the past five years or so rehabilitating her image after their custody and child support war. As it turns out, that child support issue was on her mind at the time. Halle and Gabriel have updated their child support arrangement now that their daughter Nahla is 13 years old, and presumably now that Halle is making less income too.

Halle Berry has just had her monthly child support owed to her ex, Gabriel Aubry, in support of their 13-year-old daughter, cut in HALF. Sources close to the situation tell The Blast, the X-Men actress and Aubry recently negotiated a settlement in their ongoing child support case, after arguing over the amount.

As of March 1, 2021, Halle Berry will now pay her ex $8,000 a-month. As we reported, Halle was previously ordered to pay Gabriel $16,000 a month in child support. In the ex-couples new agreement, Halle will pay retroactive support Gabriel in the amount of $85,000 and agreed to continue to pay Nahlas private school tuition and health insurance.

In the new agreement, Halle will also pay Gabriel additional child support if her income exceeds 1.95 million in a given year, and she must also contribute $5,000 to Gabriels attorneys fees and costs.

The ex-couple are both represented by high-powered attorneys in the deal. Gabriel is represented by Mark P. Gross of Brot Gross Fishbein, and Halle is represented by Marina Zakiyan of Beck of Elkins Kalt Weintraub Reuben Gartside.

Going forward, Halle and Gabriel agreed to exchange annual income information, which will include complete income and expense declarations, tax returns, and profit and loss statements. The good news, they also have agreed to attempt to settle future disputes through a private judge, to keep this case out of courts.

[From The Blast]

I?m sure Halle is happy that she got the monthly support cut in half, but I?m super-curious about the fact that she has to pay back-support. Did she refuse to pay his support for six months or something? It sounds like it. As much as Halle?s defenders will call this an unqualified win, it?s quite common in family law for there to be updates to the support agreements depending on fluctuations in income. It?s far more likely that Halle gets to pay less to Gabriel these days because she?s simply not making as much money as she used to. Jeremy Renner claimed the same thing in his (still-ongoing) dispute with his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco he went to court to cry poverty and say that he shouldn?t have to pay her so much (reportedly around $30K a month) while he wasn?t working as consistently.
