'He can't quit her': Al Pacino's pals worry Noor Alfallah is taking advantage of him after custody filing
According to insiders, a hopeful Pacino, 83, is still spending huge money on lavish date nights
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Al Pacino's friends claim the veteran actor is being taken advantage of by his baby mama Noor Alfallah, who they believe is taking the Godfather legend too far and making him appear foolish.
Three months after Roman, the couple's son, was born in June, Alfallah, 29, filed court documents to obtain full physical custody of the boy.
Pacino is spending big amounts on lavish date nights
According to insiders, a hopeful Pacino, 83, is still spending huge money on lavish date nights with his bossy girlfriend and giving in to all of her demands despite Alfallah's court filing.
An insider told the National Enquirer, "No matter what she puts him through, he can't quit her; the moment she agrees to give him even the smallest scrap of attention, he jumps to it."
The insider went on to say that his friends are concerned about the aging actor and the impact of the relationship. The source noted, "At his age, the last thing he needs is these games. His friends just don't get why he signed up for this," as reported by RadarOnline.
"The feeling is he should take a bow for his artistic achievements and enjoy his life. Instead, he's hunkered down in mediation meetings saying yes to everything Noor wants. Then he's taking her out for fancy dinners!" they added.
Al Pacino's other children
The former Tinseltown playboy is also the father of three adult children: Julie, 34, with acting coach ex Jan Tarrant, and Anton and Olivia, 22 years old, with 'National Lampoon's Vacation' mom Beverly D'Angelo, whom he dated from 1997 to 2003.

"He had a horrible custody battle with Beverly, but they're on good terms now," noted the insider. "He seems to be convinced he can have the same sort of positive outcome with Noor — or at least that's what he claims."
The insider added, "But most of his friends think he's just too weak to stand up for himself. It's obvious he's miserable, he's changing diapers and tied to Noor for the rest of his life. People are worrying the stress and heartache will finish him off."
However, a rep for Pacino said, "The following was released several weeks ago. Al and Noor have successfully worked together and have mutually reached agreements regarding their child Roman."
Al Pacino and Noor had private temporary judge
Pacino and Noor decided to have a private temporary judge handle their custody dispute behind closed doors.
Judge Thomas Trent Lewis is in charge of the private matter until December 31, 2023, unless the couple can agree and file a court order to extend the legal matter, according to documents filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court in early October.
Appointing Lewis to manage the custody case is apparently an expensive affair. Records showed that Lewis is paid $950 per hour plus fees, which are "advanced by Respondent (Pacino)."
