Linda Evangelista Demands $46,000 in Monthly Child Support

Wednesday, 03 Aug 2011 02:31 PM

A month after it was revealed that Salma Hayek’s husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, fathered a son with Linda Evangelista, the former supermodel filed an enormous support order in Manhattan family court on Monday, reports People.
Evangelista, 46, is asking for $46,000 per month to care for her 4-year-old son Augustin, fathered by Pinault. “That would probably be the largest support order in the history of the family court,” support magistrate Matthew Troy told the New York Post. Troy is expected to mediate the affair.
According to court papers filed by Evangelista earlier this summer, Augustin was fathered by prominent French businessman Pinault. He and actress Hayek, 44, wed in 2009 but began dating in 2006 — around the same time that Evangelista got pregnant. Pinault already has two children from a previous marriage that ended in 2004 and a daughter with Hayek, Valentina, who will turn four in September.
According to Evangelista’s lawyer, William Beslow, Pinault has “just been sitting back, paying zero.” He added that the $46,000 per month is necessary to cover a full-time nanny and drivers who are retired police detectives.
Pinault’s lawyer, David Aaronson, has challenged the amount sought on the basis that Evangelista testified that she wants a 24-hour nanny so she doesn’t have to be alone with Augustin, and that the model “has worth of over $8 million.”
According to the Post, the judge sided with Evangelista. “These are the extraordinary expenses that may be a part of the child’s life,” he said, referring to the extra costs of raising a child in the public eye. The judge also referenced the model’s professional schedule, which she testified could have her working 16-hour days. Evangelista’s request for $7,500 in monthly vacation expenses, however, was shot down.
