Linda Evangelista, supermodel, settles child custody dispute
Supermodel, Linda Evangelista has now settled a child custody case with the father of her child, french billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault.
According to ABC News online, Monday’s court session adjourned after only 20 minutes and both sides are expected to be back in court today. News sources have stated that the two parties reached an agreement over the phone today.
Reportedly, Evangelista was asking for more than $46,000 a month in support for their 5-year-old son. Evangelista denied this figure later in court. Her defense claims that Pinault asked her to terminate the pregnancy and it has been said that she will testify on his reluctance in court.
Pinault, now married to actress Selma Hayek, allegedly did not recognize the child as his own until 2009, even though he found out about him in 2007.
