Gabriel Aubry reportedly wants ex-girlfriend Halle Berry to pay for his rent.

The 36-year-old male model - who has daughter Nahla, three, with the 'Catwoman' actress - is apparently suing Halle for thousands of pounds of monthly maintenance which he wants to spend on a house.

According to TMZ.com, Gabriel is seeking between £9,500 and £12,600 a month in child support, and also wants Halle to cover the cost of taking Nahla to visit his family in his native Canada, and of buying her clothes.

But a source says the 45-year-old 'New Year's Eve' star - who is said to by eyeing a move to France to be with boyfriend Olivier Martinez - plans to fight the request 'tooth and nail' in the run-up to the hearing on April 9.

Meanwhile, Halle has taken time out from the long-running custody battle to team up with German footwear company Deichmann to launch her own shoe collection.

The '5th Avenue by Halle Berry' range went on sale yesterday (05.03.12), and features chunky wedges and gladiator sandals.

She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: ''I think every woman would like to be involved in creating a shoe collection. My 5th Avenue shoes can easily be worn by every woman.''
