Supermodel Linda Evangelista will become the Patron Saint of Get That Money if a judge approves her request for $46k a month in child support from the father of her 4-year-old son Augusten.
Last month, Linda stomped into Family Court in Manhattan and scandalously (sort of) revealed that Augusten’s father is François-Henri Pinault, the billionaire husband of Salma Hayek. Yesterday, Linda and her lawyer were back in court and told the judge that Francois-Henri hasn’t paid one cent and she wants $552,000 a year in child support. The judge basically issued a “COME AGAIN?” when he said that if he granted that amount it would “probably be the largest support order in the history of Family Court.” Linda, being the refined diamond digger that she is, then had to excuse herself because she messed up her cashmere chonies from creaming over his words.
Linda’s lawyer told the judge that Francois-Henri, who is the CEO of the company that owns a bunch of fashions houses, set up a $12 million estate for his 3-year-old daughter with Salma, but her son hasn’t gotten anything from him. The $46k a month will go towards a full-time nanny, vacation expenses and armed chauffeurs.
The judge immediately threw out the $7,500 a month for vacation expenses, but is going to consider the security expenses since Augusten is the child of two high-profile people.
As for the full-time nanny, Linda testified that she needs 24-hour help, because she doesn’t want to be alone with her son. Linda went on to testify that she needs someone to take care of Augusten while she maintains her gorgeousness.
“On days when I do not work, I am working on my image. I have to hit the gym. I have beauty appointments. I have to work toward my next job and maintaining my image, just like an athlete. When I work, it can be a 16-hour day.”
Linda is apparently worth $8 million, which is about $2 billion less than what Francois-Henri is worth.
The hens on The View were pecking at this story on the show this morning and Whoopi Goldberg said that $46k a month is ridiculous and women need to take responsibility for their actions. To which I say, BITCH, she is taking responsibility! When you open up your vagina to a billionaire and a baby comes out, it is your responsibility to get as much money out of that motherfucker as possible! This is the truth according to life.
Why should Linda raise her son when Salma Hayek’s husband can pay a nanny to raise him while she gets a dolphin fetus facial mask and works out her hands so she doesn’t get fat cuticles? Raising your own children is overrated and for the poors, dahling. We should all be so lucky to give birth to an ATM code.
But seriously, I think it’s kind of cute that Linda addresses the nanny as a “nanny.” We all know that Augusten really addresses the nanny as “mommy.”
