Beautiful ladies at war alert! Yep, there’s a famous person love triangle at work in the US right now. Supermodel type Linda Evangelista is demanding $46,000 a month (that’s about £28,000… more than we earn in a year, but nevermind…) from her billionaire ex, Francois-Henri Pinault. Who just happens to be currently married to Salma Hayek.
So, concentrate. Linda and F-HP (let’s call him F-HP, it’s easier to type and a lot less time consuming) have a four year old son, Augustin James, but naughty F-HP hasn’t contributed to the child’s upkeep EVER.
Let’s have a bit of F-HP background and put him in to context, shall we? He runs the company that owns Gucci, YSL and a monogrammed-suitcase load of other luxury (and far too expensive for normal people) brands. He’s so rich, that his family fortune is estimated at £7 billion. Crikey.
The £28000 per month is thought to be the largest ever child support sum EVER in Manhattan court, and there’s a ruling on it next month. Watch this space...
