Linda Evangelista seeks record-breaking child support from Francois-Henri Pinault

Linda Evangelista, renowned Canadian model who has the honor of being featured on more than 600 magazine covers, is in the limelight for reaching a settlement with her husband on their child support fight. The couple had been in a dispute for the last five years over the care of their 5-year-old son. According to The Sun, Evangelista had said in court papers that she was spending $46,000 a month on her son's expenses, including bodyguards and a 24-hour nanny.

Linda Evangelista was married to billionaire French businessman and their lawyers have revealed that the matter has been mutually resolved. They didn’t give away the details for the media but exact settlement and agreement will be provided to the magistrate on Tuesday. Pinault’s lawyer, David Aronson, said, “Everybody is very glad that it’s over.”

Pinault is an extremely rich person. He 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. Yet, he had many issues in giving money for his son.

After years of dispute, both parties entered a negotiating ground last weekend and continued till Monday morning.

Evangelista and Pinault's son, Augustin, nicknamed Augie, was born after the couple had spent four months together. However, Pinault claims that he only spent 7 days with her. Evangelista bore all expenses on her own initially, but now her son is growing up and she requires assistance from the father. Her financial position is quite weak these days, especially because she lost her $1.8 million-a-year contract with L’Oreal last year.

Evangelista is mostly known for being the longtime muse of photographer Steven Meisel. She holds the record for her multiple appearances on the cover of Vogue Italia, all of which were photographed by Meisel.

Last year in June, Evangelista filed court papers that revealed her son was fathered by billionaire Frenchman François-Henri Pinault. Their child support case was highly publicized. It was reported that if granted, this amount "would probably be the largest support order in the history of the family court." Finally, the matter has been resolved and hopefully Augustin will get his fair share of money from his biological father.
