Supermodel Linda Evangelista is hoping to take billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault to the cleaners in their child support court battle. Pinault, who happens to be Salma Hayek‘s husband, dated Evangelista from 2005 to 2006 and is the father of her child.
Before we tell you how much Evangelista is looking for in child support, some context: currently, the record for the highest child support payment in the state of New York is held by Sean “Diddy” Combs, who pays out $19,000 a month.
Linda Evangelista wants to break that record with $46,000 a month in child support.
What, pray tell, does Evangelista need all that money for? A judge asked this very question, to which she responded, “When I work, it can be a 16-hour day. On days when I do not work, I am working on my image. I have to hit the gym. I have beauty appointments. I have to work toward my next job and maintaining my image, just like an athlete.”
What do you think of Evangelista’s out-of-this-world child support payment request?
