Linda Evangelista's Child Support Demands

Supermodel Linda Evangelista is demanding $46,000-per-month child support from her babydaddy, Francois Henri-Pinault, CEO of PPR and husband (and babydaddy) of Salma Hayek. "That would probably be the largest support order in the history of the Family Court," Support Magistrate Matthew Troy told the NY Post. Pinault has, thus far, paid $0 in child support for Evangelista's four-year old son, Augustin James. The Post reports: "While Pinault lavishes Valentina [Hayek's daughter] with luxuries—he even spends $50,000 a month for a $12 million Los Angeles estate held in trust in the girl's name—Evangelista has been saddled with the entire cost of caring for and protecting little Augie, complained the model's lawyer, William Beslow."
