Ooh boy. Recently we discovered that French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault is the father of Linda Evangelista’s 4-year-old son, Augustin James.
Pinault is now married to Salma Hayek; they have a daughter together – Valentina Paloma. He also has two other children from a previous marriage.
Now, Evangelista is demanding that her ex pay her $46,000 a month in child support.
It’s believed that her request is the largest in the history of Manhattan’s Family Court. Pinault has reportedly not financially supported Evangelista since their son’s birth.
Most of the former supermodel’s costs for Augustin’s care would include 24-hour nannies and former police detectives to serve as armed drivers.
Pinault has the money – he runs the French conglomerate that owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent and other luxury brands. His family fortune is valued at $11.5 billion.
The judge is expected to rule on the amount of child support next month.
