Linda Evangelista recently revealed in a court filing that the father of her 4-year-old son is not, as she'd claimed previously, "a Manhattan architect," but is in fact François-Henri Pinault — husband of Salma Hayek, father of her 3-year-old daughter, and one of the richest luxury tycoons in the world. Now in a new filing, the supermodel's lawyers have revealed that they are seeking $46,000 a month in child support. The judge in the case says that would be the biggest support order in New York family court history. Pinault, who is worth an estimated $11.5 billion, runs the conglomerate that owns Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Bottega Veneta, among other brands. According to Evangelista's lawyers, he donates $50,000 a month to an $11 million trust fund for his daughter with Hayek, but has never paid a cent for the care of Evangelista's son. Evangelista — who herself is worth around $11 million — wants, among other things, $175,000 a year for ex-police security and drivers, and $80,000 for a round-the-clock nanny. [NYPost]
