It looks like the fight is finally over! Supermodel Linda Evangelista and her ex-partner and father to her child, Augustin, have settled their child support case in a New York City family courtroom on Monday afternoon.
According to reports, no one has so far revealed the details of the settlement as attorneys plan to hand over specifics to a magistrate later on this afternoon. Linda was asking for a whopping $46,000 per month to pay for Augustin’s monthly expenses, including a round-the-clock nanny and bodyguards.
Let’s hope the end result is a good one for all parties involved for Augustin’s sake.
Model Linda Evangelista and Henri-Francois Pinault (husband to Salma Hayek, who also shares a 4-year-old daughter with him) are battling in court over child support of their son, Augustin, 4, who was conceived while Pinault and Hayek were on a ‘break’. Up to this point Henri-Francois (a billionaire) hasn’t paid a dime in support, according to reports.
an estimated $80,000 per year for a round-the-clock nanny
approx. 175,000 per year for drivers (who are retired police detectives)
The judge denied her request for an additional $7,500/per month for vacations.
Pinault’s lawyer argued that Linda makes plenty of money to support the child:
“She testified that she wants to have a 24-hour nanny because she does not want to be alone with the child … Miss Evangelista, you should understand, has a worth of more than $8 million, and she earned, last year, $1.8 million.”
Hmmm..where I live, it doesn’t matter what the mother’s income is – child support is based a set percentage of the father’s income. I’m surprised he hasn’t had to pay anything for the past four years.
