The luxury brand owner, 49, confirmed in court papers today he is the father of Linda’s 4-year-old son, Augustin, reports the Daily Mail. It's claimed that Linda conceived in early 2006 and Francois-Henri started seeing Salma in May 2006.
Augustin and Valentina are both unaware they have a sibling.
Linda had managed to keep the name of her baby’s father a secret but it came out as arguments were occurring over child support.
Linda was recently seen in court trying to reach an agreement with the wealthy businessman about supporting little Augustin.
No agreement has been reached after Francois-Henri failed to be there to witness the legal proceedings.
Francois-Henri’s lawyer, David Aronson, claims it was a misunderstanding. He said: “We had understood that it was to be a brief telephone conference, to bring Magistrate Troy up to date on what the status was.”
With natural beauty Linda having visited the court three times previously, it is thought it is likely to go to a full support trial.
Francois-Henri is the Chief Executive Officer of luxury brands firm PPR, which owns Gucci and YSL. He married stunning Salma, 44, in 2009.
Recently speaking about her home life, Salma said, “Our life is great and glamorous in many ways, and in many ways – the good ways - it’s very homey. He’s a spoiled brat, my husband, when it comes to food.”
We wonder if Salma might be thinking ‘brat’ was a little too gentle now…
The case continues.
