Ever the professional Halle made an effort to get into the spirit of the evening

According to People magazine, she and Olivier had a pre-nuptial agreement and both are seeking joint custody of their son. Halle has asked them to share the costs of raising Maceo as per the terms of their pre-nup. Her filing also says that her estranged husband be required to ask for permission to take their child out of California.

Meanwhile, the French actor has asked for the issue of spousal support to be settled at a later date.

In 2014, the actress applied to have the sum of child support she pays to Gabriel drastically reduced. The French Canadian model argued that he needed the money because he was unable to work for six months after a violent altercation with Olivier.

The two men had been arguing over Halle and Olivier's plan to move to France, with Gabriel objecting because of the issue of access to Nahla.
