Linda Evangelista seeks child support from Salma Hayek's husband
Linda Evangelista, 46 but still a stunner, went to court this week asking for $46,000 a month in child support from the father of her 4-year-old son, François-Henri Pinault.
The case is especially juicy because the father of the supermodel's baby is currently the husband of actress Salma Hayek and the father of her 3-year-old daughter, Valentina. (If you're keeping count, the two half siblings are 11 months apart in age.)
It's a massive child support request, according to a Manhattan court official interviewed by the New York Post.
Pinault is one of the richest men in France. And he's rich in offspring too. It's Hayek's first child but his fourth. The 49-year-old, heir to a business empire built by his father, also has two children from his first marriage.
Evangelista, for her part, argues that she needs round-the-clock child care and a bodyguard for the boy, Augustin, since his dad is an international billionaire.
