Linda Evangelista settles child-support case with billionare baby daddy
Canadian supermodel Linda Evangelista and her French billionaire baby daddy settled their dramatic child-support case Monday after two days of tense, often personal court testimony last week.
Evangelista's attorney called reports that she sought $46,000 a month from billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault a misunderstanding, but did say she was seeking a "substantial" sum to raise their 5-year-old son. Lawyers for both parties declined to disclose the settlement.
Both parties agreed to return to court today to finalize the agreement.
"Everybody's glad, for the sake of the child, that it's done," said David Aronson, Pinault's attorney.
Evangelista, 46, and Pinault, 49, had been embroiled in a contentious child-support trial over their son Augustin, conceived during a brief liaison in late 2005.
