Salma Hayek’s Husband Sued for $46,000 a Month in Child Support

By Nottage and Ward on August 15, 2011

According to The International Business Times, supermodel Linda Evangelista recently announced that billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, husband of actress Salma Hayek, is the father of her 4-year-old son. Now, she is suing him for about $46,000 per month in child support, which is estimated to be the largest support order in the history of the Manhattan family court. Pinault is estimated to be worth over $11 billion.

Pinault has a 3-year-old daughter with Hayek as well as two other children from a previous marriage. Allegedly, Evangelista’s son was conceived in 2006 during Pineault and Hayek’s brief separation period.

According to documents filed with the court, Evangelista is requesting the large sum because she needs help paying for nannies and drivers who would double as security guards. The supermodel alleges she works 16-hour days and often requires the help of a nanny. Additionally, her attorney argues that Pinault already spends a significant sum on his daughter with Hayek—it is estimated he spends at least $50,000 per month on a trust in addition to other gifts and vacations. Pinault has not offered any support to Evangelista. It has also not been confirmed whether a paternity test has been taken and whether Pinault is the real father of Evangelista’s son.

Illinois paternity cases can be very complicated, and can involve sensitive issues. However, it is necessary to identify a child’s biological father in order to determine child custody, child support, visitation rights, and other custody and visitation-related issues. Disputes regarding paternity can quickly become very emotionally charged, which is why many find it beneficial to consult with an attorney that has experience successfully resolving paternity cases.
