Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault Settle Child Support
Supermodel Linda Evangelista and French businessman billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault can now move out of the courtroom and move on with their lives, albeit separately.
The two, parents to 5-year old Augustin, have finally reached an agreement which will end their child support legal battle that brought to life tales of high life, high fashion and even abortion onto the table.
Evangelista, Pinault and their respective attorneys were all mum about the details of the child support settlement, which they gave to the magistrate.
In all, Pinault’s lawyer David Aronson said, “Everybody is very glad that it’s over”.
The settlement came in the middle of a trial over how much, if anything, Pinault should pay toward the care of his 5-year-old son with Evangelista.
Pinault is the CEO of a company that owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent and other top-of-the-line fashion brands. He is now married to actress Salma Hayek, with whom he has a 4-year old daughter. He reportedly makes around $4 million a year.
Evangelista, on the other hand, is said to be still able to command $100,000 to walk the fashion runway, but suffered a huge loss in her earning capacity after her deal with L’oreal ended last year.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
