Halle Berry

The talented actress ensures her son Maceo is well taken care of by sending $8,000 every month to her ex-husband, Olivier Martinez. But hold on, there’s a twist to this tale! If Halle’s earnings go beyond $2 million, Olivier gets an extra 4.3% cut.

The generous check covers everything from Maceo’s school uniforms, exciting extracurricular activities, and private school tuition. We all want to take care of our kids, but this is quite an exorbitant cost for one little human.

Brendan took a trip to the courtroom, hoping to lower such a monthly sum, but it seems the legal feud didn’t quite turn out in his favor.

Also, if his annual income from all sources crosses the $2.1 million mark in any given year, he’s obliged to share 9.5% of that sum with both of his former loves. However, as of 2021, Sheen no longer needs to make those child support payments.
