Francois-Henri Pinault, who has fathered a child with both new wife Salma Hayek and ex Linda Evangelista, is caught up in a bitter child support battle. Linda is supposedly demanding £28,000 a month from Francois-Henri for child support – but what do the children think about it?
According to Francois-Henri, his and Salma Hayek’s 3-year-old daughter, Valentina, apparently treats Linda’s son, Augustin, 4, like her brother. Despite Linda accusing the French businessman of paying nothing towards Augustin’s child support since birth, Francois-Henri stresses that Augustin is an important member of his family, reports the Daily Mail.
“At every possible opportunity [Augustin] has participated in my family life whether in France or the United States,” said Francois-Henri to French Elle magazine.
“He is totally integrated within my family,” the multimillionaire fashion boss added.
We hope the court battle ties up soon, for the children’s sake.
