Salma Hayek Caught In The Middle Of Child Support Battle With Linda Evangelista!

| Filed under: Exclusives!Salma Hayek


Linda Evangelista is back to her old tricks - creating drama when it's unnecesarry!

The former supermodel has gone public with her bitter child support battle with Salma Hayek's husband, French billionaire Francois Henri Pinault, CEO of PPR, which owns Gucci and other luxury brands.

Linda has finally come forward and revealed that Francois is the father of her son, Augustin James, 4 years old. However, sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that this news was not a secret to Salma. "This was no surprise, she's known all along," an insider tells us of Hayek.

Additionally, Evangelista has been hinting that Francois cheated on Salma during their romance, but that is not true our source insists.

"Francois' relationship with Linda was brief. They dated for three months in 2005. He didn't even meet Salma until April of 2006," reveals our source.

Linda showed up to Manhattan family court recently for an imaginary court date. "There was a call scheduled between lawyers, but no court date. Francois was never supposed to be there" reveals our source. However, Evangelista showed up at the courthouse, accompanied by a press person, and shortly thereafter she leaked the story and it ended up in the papers.

And the story out there isn't even accurate!

"Linda didn't even tell Francois she was pregnant until the 8th month," our source reveals. Naturally, he wanted to take a paternity test, which he took right away.

Evangelista, however, waited until he was 1 year old before she submitted her son for paternity testing.

Francois made an offer to Linda of child support in the same amount he pays for his two older children from his first marriage. This was unacceptable to Evangelista. She wants more!

"She's trying to smear his reputation and hurt Salma in an attempt to get more money," an insider tells us.

In France, whether you have a child in a marriage or outside of wedlock, each heir is eligible for equal inheritance.

Pinault has never tried to shuck his responsibility, despite the opposite picture Evangelista is trying to paint.

Being greedy is not pretty, Linda. Your son shouldn't be treated any differently than Francois' two elder children!

    Once again Perez… you are not speaking from facts about the law, you're speaking with emotion.

  2. 2

    first off Louis Vuitton isnt one of PPR subsidiaries, its LVMH's which is PPR's competitor, 2nd of all this is old news. Get your facts straight and get ahead of the game!

  3. 3

    Not exactly telling both sides of the story there Perez. That is an incredibly biased report. It's sad that some people are silly enough to take anything you say at face value.

  4. 4

    Check your fact. LVMH owns Louis Vuiton. The L and the V in LVMH stands for Louis Vuitton.

    Bottom line: this dude needs to be more responsible…he has fathered three different children with three different women….his life, but I feel for the kids…I know he has millions/billions and that attracts the beauties (certainly not is looks-yuck)…Hope Salma has her eyes wide open with this dude.

  6. @v@ says – reply to this


    Wouldn't the deal struck for the other two children have been made years ago? Linda has a right to seek her own deal in 2011.

    1. Francois needs a vasectomy, well what the hell, let's throw in 100% of the male population.
    2. Francois looks a bit like Daniel Craig; but his money evens things out.

    Oh, Cherie take it down a minute.

    "Pinault has never tried to shuck his responsibility," How the f*ck do you 'shuck' a responsibility like an oyster? Wtf?! Illiterate douche.

    shirk (shûrk)
    v. shirked, shirk·ing, shirks
    To avoid or neglect (a duty or responsibility).

    the child support agreements for his 2 older children were ordered years ago
    this is now 2011
    no judge would onder the same amount today-even just with inflation alone- even if he were a regular working stiff

  13. 13
