Halle Berry is a mom. Twice. One with a former boyfriend, one with her current husband. Halle Berry is rich. The former boyfriend is not rich, and has custody of her first child. She and her current husband have custody of her second child.

A judge has approved a settlement between Halle Berry and the ex-boyfriend over child support payment for their child.

Berry will pay the boyfriend $16,000 a month, pay for the child's private school tuition, and the former couple will split health care costs. She will pay the ex-boyfriend $115,000 just to make him feel good, and $300,000 attorney's fees.

This equality thing really has teeth. Remember, this woman is the mother of the child in question.
