Al Pacino’s girlfriend, Noor Alfallah, has filed for physical custody of their 3-month-old son, but they are “still together” despite a report to the contrary.
The 83-year-old Oscar winner’s newborn, Roman Alfallah Pacino, will primarily reside with 29-year-old Alfallah, according to the court documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court and obtained by Yahoo. Pacino will get “reasonable” visitation, though a visitation schedule was omitted from the filing, as well as share joint legal custody to make decisions about the child’s health care and education.
Alfallah, who gave birth Roman on June 6, initiated the filing on Wednesday. The Godfather and Scent of a Woman actor acknowledged receipt of the documents using his given name “Alfred Pacino.” Also in the paperwork was a “voluntary declaration of parentage,” which Pacino signed six days after the child’s birth stating that he is the genetic father of the child. There are no future hearings yet scheduled in the manner.
A source told the outlet that Pacino and Alfallah “are no longer romantic, but do spend time together.” So Alfallah wants full custody of the baby as well as “more money than what Pacino has offered her so far.”
Pacino’s rep dismissed the breakup report, and said the couple worked together to establish a formal custody arrangement.
“Al and Noor have successfully worked together and have mutually reached agreements regarding their child Roman,” the actor’s publicist told Yahoo on Thursday. “They are still together.”
Pacino and Alfallah were out to dinner at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles — the same day the legal papers were filed. They arrived and left together, and dined with another couple.
Pacino — who has never married — was first linked to Alfallah in April 2022, but got together during the pandemic. In May, his rep confirmed Pacino and Alfallah were having a child.
Alfallah, listed as a producer on Pacino’s upcoming film Billy Knight, shared an Instagram photo of the baby’s hand on Aug. 27, calling Roman “my whole heart and the greatest blessing in my life.”
