HALLE BERRY HAS TO PAY UP ON CHILD SUPPORT

Halle Berry's bank account is about to get a little light. The Oscar winning actress has been ordered to pay $16-thousand a month to exGabriel Aubry for child support. That's not all.

According to the Associated Press, Berry will pay for their daughter's tuition and half her health care expenses. The former couple were in a nasty custody battle back in 2012, when a judge blocked the actress from moving with her daughter to France.

In another win for Aubry, Berry also has to fork over $115-thousand and $300-thousand to Aubry's attorneys to cover the costs of their custody dispute.

We told you yesterday that Sandra Bullock was the victim of a break-in on Sunday morning. Now we have a few more details on the incident, courtesy of Today

Thirty-nine-year old Joshua Corbett broke into Sandra’s house in the wee hours of Sunday morning. He was able to get past the security cameras and barbed wire to get into the house, where the Oscar winner and her four-year-old son, Louis, were sleeping.

Apparently Corbett was going through Sandra’s house taking her personal items. And the Los Angeles Police say that the break-in wasn’t a random act. Corbett – who was arrested on suspicion of burglary – allegedly obsessed with Bullock – even going so far as to keep a diary about the actress.

ROB LOWE TALKS ABOUT HIS FORMER "DRINKING BUDDIES"

Rob Lowe now is a sitcom star, having just left "Parks and Recreation." Rob Lowe in the late 80s early 90s? Party animal. In a new interview with "Cigar Aficionado" magazine, Lowe talks about getting sober and his former partying pals

The actor explains that when he wanted to get sober, he needed to find some new hobbies and ways to relate to others. “You’re looking for new ways to bond, to be social, to be out amongst people," he said. "For me, in the early days, that meant playing golf and smoking cigars.”

Being social also meant having his fair share of hard partying nights with some other a-listers. “He was always in the dead center of . . . the scene," Lowe says of Robert Downey Jr. Now he commutes from a safe distance and does it in doses . . . we see each other a bunch but . . . we’re not the last ones to leave a party anymore.” Lowe even has stories about Charlie Sheen, and somehow still has a short spot for the guy. “I love him, even though he hates sobriety," the actor says. "There’s no funnier, smarter, more enjoyable raconteur than Charlie . . . I admire him living the life of his choosing.” Someone's gotta love Charlie.
