Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek's husband, strike child support agreement
Pinault and Evangelista have a 5-year-old son, Augustin, nicknamed Augie, born from a four-month relationship between the two back in 2006. Pinault is now married to actress Salma Hayek, with whom he has 4-year-old daughter Valentina. Pinault also has two other children from a previous marriage, Francois and Mathilde.
Evangelista claimed in legal papers that she was spending $46,000 a month on armed bodyguards, a round-the-clock nanny and other expenses on Augie, though what she was actually asking from Pinault was not disclosed. Her lawyer revealed that her $1.8 million-a-year income has dropped significantly because her L'Oreal contract ended.
Pinaul, who is the CEO of the company that owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent and other fashion lines, earned about $4 million a year and his family's net worth is estimated to be roughly $13 billion.
The settlement came in the midst of a trial over how much, if anything, Pinault should pay toward the care of their 5-year-old son. Pinault is the CEO of a company that owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent and other top-flight fashion lines; he's now married to actress Salma Hayek.
Aronson called $46,000 a month "just ridiculous" and it would certainly be an extravagant amount for Pinault to be ordered to pay, even for New York.
