Linda Evangelista took her son Augustin to a birthday party in the Upper East Side of New York City on Saturday (May 5). The 5-year-old – called Augie – held onto his mom’s hand while she carried the present. The supermodel has been facing off against Salma Hayek’s husband Francois-Henri Pinault in court. She is asking the court for $46,000 a month payments in child support.
According to Radaronline.com – Pinault had testified that he asked Evangelista not to go public with her claim for support. He also said that Salma was having a “difficult pregnancy”.
He said, “We were told the baby had Down syndrome until late May 2007. I asked Linda to delay [Augie's] legal recognition process until after the birth of Valentina.”
Evangelista and Pinault dated briefly from September 2005 to January 2006. Soon afterward he started dating Salma Hayek, now his wife. They have a 4-year-old daughter named Valentina.
Evangelista claims they broke up immediately after he asked her to terminate the pregnancy. Pinaulta’s lawyers say she is asking for “mommy support” rather than child support.View Slideshow »»
