The famous 46-year-old model Linda Evangelista has graced the cover of hundreds of magazines over the years, but for months she refused to name her former boyfriend Francois Henri-Penault as the father of her son Augustin when he started dating Salma Hayek. Now Linda is battling him in court for child support and is demanding at least $45,000 a month to care for her 5-year-old son. She claims that Penault favors his daughter with Hayek, 4-year-old Valentina.
Seen here, Linda Evangelista arrives at a Manhattan courthouse on May 3rd dressed in Christian Louboutin heels and designer sunglasses. According to ABC, Evangelista was 20 minutes late to the hearing. Her attorneys asserted that Penault asked her to terminate her pregnancy when they were together, although he denies this claim. If her requests are granted, Penault will break the record for most money paid in child support, a title which is currently held by Sean “P-Diddy” Combs who pays $19,000 a month to his ex in child support.
