Salma Hayek's Billionaire Husband Needs To Pay Child Support for Son With Supermodel Linda Evangelista

Linda Evangelista Child Support

Pay up and shut up, you cheapskate baby daddy! Salma Hayek’s husband Francois-Henri Pinault should be thrilled he has a five year-old son. Now support your little guy!

Salma Hayek, please. Have a major word with your billionaire husband. Whether he’s happy about it or not, he did father an adorable boy, who’s now 5, with supermodel Linda Evangelista, now 46.

The little boy, called Augustin (known as Augie), is at the center of a vicious court battle between his cheapie dad, who’s family is worth $11.5 billion and his mother, who has paid virtually all his expenses till now.

Supermodel Linda Evangelista, who dominated magazine covers in the 1980s and 90s, has hauled her former boyfriend into court to finally pay child support, since her own income has dropped since she lost a L’Oreal contract.

While Evangelista may be asking for as much as $46,000 a month, Francois-Henri Pinault, who earns at least $4 million a year, can afford it without blinking an eyelash. As CEO, he oversees upscale designer brands Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Bottega Veneta, which his company owns.

His refusal to pull out his pocketbook for his little son, appears to be rooted in fury at Evangelista because she got pregnant without his permission.

“I was not involved in the decision of having babies,” he told the court. “It was not planned.  I decided to stop the relationship at that point.”

In other words, he dumped supermodel Linda after she got pregnant, without his permission – but of course, she didn’t exactly get pregnant without his involvement.

Yes, Francois-Henri – Linda didn’t make this baby on her own. YOU could have worn protection, if you didn’t want the baby! You didn’t!

You apparently even had the nerve to suggest that Linda terminate her pregnancy. “After some initial happiness, he indicated his preference to Ms. Evangelista that she terminate the pregnancy,” her lawyer told the court.

This is just inexcusably caddish behavior. You can afford to take care of this child. You can choose to be a father to him – I’m sure he’d love to have a daddy. You met and married wife Salma Hayek just a few months after dumping pregnant Linda. Now you have a four-year-old daughter with Salma – Valentina – and she is lavished with attention and riches.

How can you adore, cherish and care for one child and reject and not want to care for, the other. Augie is an innocent child. He can’t help it that he was born without your ‘permission’.

You apparently once told supermodel Linda that you would take “responsibility” for your son, but then contributed nothing to his support, while Linda took care of all expenses until now. “I’m not going to pay money I’m not asked for,” was your lame excuse in court.

Yes, lame. That excuse is inexcusable. You are a billionaire. You have the means up the wazoo to care for your little boy. Don’t punish him because you are angry with his mom.

Now stop wasting money on lawyers and pay up you billionaire dead beat dad!

I cant stand the child support system and hate how people use it to supplant their own income while claiming it’s for the child BUT this is his kid and he is a billionaire and it’s a shame he is such a sorry person he cant see that. She got pregnant without his permission? WTF is he saying. He shot right into her knowing he could make her pregnant. He is a BILLIONAIRE! This isn’t some fairly rich ball player who’s income will drop as soon as he hits 35. This is a billionaire. Money is no issue to this man because he has already got it. He should be happy such a beautiful woman wanted his kid in the first place as ugly as he is. Without money this clown would be paying for sex anyway! 46K a month seriously. That about right, why not just make it 50K a month. If I was a billionaire I would want my son to see his mom as happy as she could be.

1stly, I of course agree that he should pay child support. However I don’t agree that a mom should just get to pick a number and everybody says the father is a dead beat if he doesn’t want to pay it, regardless of how much money he or his family has. Come on ladies, call it what it really is, this is ex support as much as it is child support. So if it costs a staggering 46,000 a month for her to raise their child, once the child reaches 18, will the child then own ALL of the property purchased with these funds that are said to be needed for the child? Hmm, quit using child support in vein. He needs to pay up YES he does, but women shouldn’t get to extort money and throw the term child support in front of it, and then it all becomes just and fair. Smh

BONNIE PLS,
SO WHAT HE IS A BILLIONAIRE,NO CHILD REQUIRES 46,000 PER MONTH,SHES BEEN TAKING CARE OF HIM UP UNTIL NOW AND HER MONEY HAS RAN OUT,SHOULD HE HELP HER ABSOLUTELY BUT SHE SHOULD’NT BE ASKING FOR 46,000.
TRUE IT TAKES TO,TO TANGO BUT AT THE SAME TIME IF YOU WANT THE MAN TO BE INVOLVED FINANCIALLY THE HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SAY WHETHER OR NOT HE WANTS THAT RESPONSIBILITY,AND IN THIS CASE NOT ONLY DID HE NOT WANT THE BABY ( NOT TO SOUND HARSH,HIS WORDS NOT MINE) BUT HE HASNT TAKEN ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIM IN HOW MANY YEARS WHICH SHOWS HE NEVER HAD THE INTENTION AND SHOWS SHE KNEW WHAT IT WAS.

OF COURSE ITS THE RIGHT THING TO BUT 46,000 PER MONTH PLS.
5,000 IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR SCHOOLING AND MEDICAL AND CLOTHES, SHES JUST TRYING TO KEEP UP HER LAVISH LIFE ON HIS DIME,,
AS A WOMAN,IM SICK OF WOMAN SAYING THEY’LL TAKE CARE OF THE CHILD THEMSELVES THEN DECIDE THEY WANT HELP…THIS IS WHY PEOPLE SHOULD BE ON THE SAME PAGE BEFORE THEY DECIDE TO HAVE CHILDREN,
IT SEEMS LIKE ALOT OF WOMAN JUST WANT BABIES BY THESE MEN TO GET A CHECK..SMH.THIS IS A MESS.I PRAY FOR ALL PARTIES INVOLVED,,
BUT BONNIE DONT INVOLVE SALMA LIKE ITS HER FAULT.
HES A SMART BUSINESS MAN AND SHES A BIG GIRL LET THEM FIGURE IT OUT.

Why all the hating on Linda? SALMA did the same exact thing!! She was UNMARRIED & pregnant in 2006, gave birth in 2007, and didn’t get him to finally marry her until TWO YEARS LATER, in 2009!

What if he’d dumped HER after she have birth to a child he also hadn’t given her permission to conceive (what a jerk), the way he dumped Linda? Would you all then be saying the same thing about Salma? Salma IS quite the gold-digger, whereas Linda would’ve remained silent, seeking nothing, if her contracts had stayed alive…

A bazillionaire baby-daddy SHOULD PAY UP!!! And he SHOULD be involved in his beautiful son’s life, and treat him EQUAL to his daughter!! Salma is just a jealous shrew…

I am an old lady and what I see is another woman putting herself out there to be judged, humilated, and obviously without morals and shame of having to accept the consequences of a stupid action. Because of the law, he will have to contribute some monies to the support of the boy; however it takes two to tango. She should have had more sense and knowing his feelings, not allowed herself to get pregnant. Now she is having to accept the consequences for her actions and all of this could have been resolved with out the notoriety. The amount she is asking for is ridiculous. She just wants someone to support her now that her career is going down. What a shame she is letting the world know how desperate she is.

Some women tell themselves that they are strong and can and will support a child on their own, and don’t need a man around. Until the bills come around then they go after the guy for all they can get. This is this guy’s child and he has to support the child. No ifs about it. But for what I have read, he has never refused to support the chil. He is just not in agreement that she just wants way too much and they way she has gone about it. Men should have a saying in wether having a child or not.

Wonder what the wife is saying about all this? Could she be influencing his decision not to pay? If she isn’t,and as a mother herself, why can’t she speak to him and suggest to him to provide for his son as he provides for their daughter

the timing of the demands are strange – after she loses a major contract and cashed up boyfriend. That said, she probably does need to hire security for him because as the son, albeit illegitimate, of a billionaire, he is still a very possible kidnapping target. Father and mother should be contributing equally towards costs of security, nanny, schooling and ancillary expenses (clothes etc). I’m guessing that would come to approximately$250,000 each per year. She’s probably shooting higher so as to come to that sum… I am sure she told him that she was on the pill etc when (clears throat) …. He should have been more careful knowing that women would definitely try to entrap him this way. I guess he just didn’t expect it of one of the world’s top supermodels.

Miriam… MONEY…no matter how supermodel she may have
been and / or lots of other women…..MONEY is there GOD !
Women like Linda Evangelista and Oksana Grigorieva and
other VULTURES are only concerned about one thing MONEY !
They are greedy and ruthless and prey on men like Francois
Henri Pinault and many wealthy men. Any man who is very,
very rich, should really, (by now know) RUN the other way.

well I agree he should pay but I think he is making the point to all gold diggers out there…I want to screw you not make a family with you.

Women need to make sure the man is in it for the long haul and not just see dollar sign when they find a rich man

men resent that ….and he has a right to decide if he wants a child.

Yes he wanted to sleep with her but good golly should he be responsible every time he has sex?

Some sex was just for the fun of it.

he sees her as a gold digger and she is proving him right by the request she is making.

I am sure with time the little boy will get all he wants but right now daddy wants to make a point to gold digging mommy that he is not interested in giving her his money. That is his right.

He has a right to choose which woman he wants to be the object of his desire…and he did…Selma!!!

Sorry Linda next time make sure the man loves you before you get preggers

Is any of that money going to haircuts for the little boy? Supermodel – you once said you wouldn’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day. Maybe get out of bed and drive your own kid to school. Just a thought. I hear lots of mommies do just that.

Read the transcripts from the case before you write something like this. The guy had no saying in having the baby and has reached out to her many times to settle. He did not want this ugly thing out there and something the child will know about. She just wants too much money.

Well…this “father” started paying “something” what HE feels is right since August 2011..since it ALL became public…BEFORE, not a dime.Yes..he did ask her to terminate the pregnancy..yet had no problem sleeping with the mother..too much money? How much do you think he spends on his “wanted” child?..Come on…so the “unwanted” needs less?

So I have to ask, how do you know he wasn’t wearing protection??? How do we know if Evangelista didn’t purposely sabotage things so she would get pregnant?? The way she talks about the money it is more for her than for the child which makes me very suspicious about her motives. Yes, he should have to pay reasonable child support BUT not what she is demanding. Evangelista has whined that Valentina gets to spend time at the grandparents home and Augie should have his own country home too. REALLY, be serious. She is also demanding ridiculous security as well. I always try to be open-minded when it comes to child-support issues because because yes the child did not choose to be born but just automatically siding with the father is not fair either since we all know plenty of women who try to secure their financial future throw pregnancy.

I do agree that he should be paying child support, but I would really like to know why she waited 5 years to decide she wanted to admit this was his child(it was kept under wraps because he is the result of an affair)and to finally ask for child support.

“child support” is really code in this country for spousal support. Everyone fully realizes that the system is a joke, that the child never needs anywhere near the amount of money that is usually rewarded in cases like this and that 90%+ of that money is going not to the child, but straight into the pockets of the former spouse, who has by themselves no legitimate claim to that money. People aren’t stupid, okay. This whole thing is a ridiculous charade. Two grown adults acting like spoiled children, and it’s the actual children who are shoved into the middle and forced to suffer. Give me a break.

dumas, i agree with you to a certain extent- but your analysis is superficial at best. if a billionaire has a baby with a destitute person living in section 8 housing, should the child be stuck living in section 8 housing while daddy yachts all over the world? no. the child is entitled to a certain lifestyle based on daddy’s earnings. that the woman gets to come along for a “free ride” b/c she gets to live in nicer accommodations b/c she got knocked up by a billionaire may seem unfair to you- but the fact of the matter is that the law is set up to protect those that need protecting. the child, needs protecting. and, the man could’ve refrained from sex or used a condom- which is what rich men should do, especially when they’re f’ing women of linda evangalista’s age who are desperate to have a child. did she trick him- i’d believe it. does that mean he doesn’t have to pay to have his child live at a level close to papa’s? no. does linda get a free ride? sort of- but don’t forget, it’s not really “free”. she is investing non-monetary consideration into the child’s upbringing. long story short- a child is entitled to live to a level that correlates to that of his richest parent. whatever comes along with that is irrelevant. and, at the end of the day, daddy was fully in control of where his sperm went and needs to take responsibility for that even if he was tricked.

gbtw..sure the kid should be well taken care of but she does NOT deserve a free ride! Like other people said, why did she barely take him to court? She could have taken him to court for child support a long time ago. And $46,000 is an excessive amount. Regardless of whether his dad is a billionaire..there is no way a kid needs that much a month. We all know she is going to be spending it.

He should definitely pay child support but not the amount she is asking for. She is being greedy and is super bitter! She probably wanted a family with him and didn’t get it so this is her way of trying to punish him..so pathetic.

Well…POINT is that there is a child that deserves..she did not mind going to bed with a rich man..just as he did not mind going to bed with a supermodel.If he did not want a child with her…he should have used protection.He knew there is a child from the start and did NOTHING..all he is doing is fighting in Court..instead of being involved in his child”s life and YES his son deserves just as much as his “wanted” daughter.If he would do this to Salma..do you think she woud not take him to Court?
