Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have finally reached a settlement regarding child support payments for their 6-year-old daughter, Nahla.

Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon approved the agreement, which calls for the Oscar-winning actress to pay $16,000 a month to her ex-boyfriend, or nearly $200,000 a year. This is in effect until Nahla turns 19 or graduates from high school, whichever comes first.

Berry, 47, will cover their daughter's school tuition (estimated at $30,000 a year), but she and Aubry, 38, will split health care expenses. Berry must also pay the Canadian model a retroactive payment of $115,000 and $300,000 to his attorneys to cover the costs of their custody dispute.

In 2012, the former couple was involved in a bitter custody quarrel, with a judge blocking the actress from moving their daughter to France. After a nearly year-long court battle, Berry and Aubry eventually reached an agreement, and the two share equal custody of Nahla.

The actress gave birth to Nahla in 2008 after dating Aubry for two years. They broke up in April 2010.

Berry wed Olivier Martinez, 48, in July 2013. They have an 8-month-old son, Maceo-Robert.
