Linda Evangelista continued her battle for child support from her billionaire ex-boyfriend, Francois-Henri Pinault, during their second day in Manhattan Family Court. Do you think she’ll get $46,000 a month?

Linda Evangelista and her French billionaire baby daddy, Francois-Henri Pinault, met face to face for the second day of their child support settlement battle in Manhattan Family Court, where disturbing new facts about Francois-Henri’s relationship with his now five-year-old son, Augustin, were revealed.

It turns out, Francois-Henri spent $260,000 (euros) on gifts in 2010, but didn’t even remember what he bough “Augie” for his fourth birthday and couldn’t recall how much he spent on him for Christmas. “I bought it online,” he said of the gift. “It was a piano thing.”

Additionally, he didn’t give his son gifts until Linda complained.

Linda, who became pregnant with Augie after dating Francois-Henri for four months, is asking that her son’s treatment be in keeping with Francois-Henri other child — Valentina, his daughter with wife Salma Hayek. Linda’s lawyer pointed out that Valentina has a $12 million L.A. home in a trust.

Also, it was revealed that Linda held off on any child support legalities when Salma and Francois-Henri were scared Valentina would be born with Down Syndrome.

“We were told the baby had Down Syndrome until late May 2007,’ Francois-Henri said. “I asked Linda to delay the legal recognition process [of son Augustin] until after the birth of Valentina.”

In addition to recognizing Linda is an excellent mother to their son, Francois-Henri also acknowledged how thankful he was to Linda for waiting on Valentina’s birth.

Later in the proceedings, Linda discussed her employment history, which demonstrated she’s not afraid to work, and also pointed out she’s not nearly in demand as a model as she used to be — which is one reason her son needs $46,000 a month.

Do YOU think Francois-Henri should pay up, or is Linda being ridiculous? Sound off below!
