Halle Berry's ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry wants $20,000 per month in child support for looking after their daughter Nahla.
The 36-year-old model is also asking the judge in his custody war with the Golden Globe Award-winning actress for $500,000 in attorney's fees.
Gabriel Aubry was in court on May 3, 2012 - expecting to argue his case for the large increase in child support.
However, the case was continued because the paperwork wasn't filled out properly.
Apparently, Gabriel Aubry was extremely upset that the matter was put off according to insiders. A source said that Gabriel believes he's entitled to the money because he needs a proper environment to care for four-year-old Nahla.
Halle Berry wants to move with the child from Los Angeles to Paris, which would have a direct impact on Gabriel's request for additional support.
However Gabriel is fighting against the move and their judge is yet to officially make a decision.
The 45-year-old Dark Tide star has previously spoken about relocating to France with fiance Olivier Martinez, in favour of the country's laws - which will protect her offspring from prying eyes.
She said, "Laws that protect children, protect right to privacy. All I want is for my family and myself to have a normal life. When I'm not at work, that's very important to me."
