Recently, Linda Evangelista revealed the identity of her 4 year-old son's father. He just so happens to be Salma Hayek's husband--Francois Henri Pinault.
"Francois' relationship with Linda was brief. They dated for three months in 2005. He didn't even meet Salma until April of 2006," a source clarified when it may have seemed as if Pinault had an affair with Evangelista while still with Hayek. "Linda didn't even tell Francois she was pregnant until the 8th month," a different source revealed. "She's trying to smear his reputation and hurt Salma in an attempt to get more money."
Salma Hayek and Francois Henri Pinault have a 3 year-old daughter together. Pinault comes from a billionaire family and is the chief executive officer of a company that owns Bottega Veneta, Yves Saint Laurent, and Gucci.
He happens to be one of the richest men in France with a family fourtune of over $11 billion. As reported by the "New York Post," Evangelista is requesting $46,000 in child support, monthly. "That would probably be the largest support order in the history of the Family Court," Support Magistrate Matthew Troy said to the newspaper.
"He's just been sitting back, paying zero," William Beslow, Evangelista's attorney, told the court. Apparently, Pinault buys plenty of things for his daughter with Hayek, including a mansion in LA for her to inherit later in life. However, Evangelista's son, Augustin James, does not receive the same treatment.
Evangelista is asking for $46,000 in order to support the cost of nannies and drivers for her child. Her chauffeurs are ex-policemen who receive a payment of $175,000 a year. She pays her nannies $80,000 and desires to have 24-hour nannies because she does not want to be alone with the her son.She also requested $7,500 for monthly "vacation" expenses which the court denied.
According to Pinaults attorney, David Aaronson, Evangelista is worth millions herself. He claimed she values at $8M and earned $1.8M last year alone.
Evangelista and Pinault are due in court in September and will settle on a value then.
