Actress Salma Hayek's busianess tycoon husband Francois-Henri Pinault has reportedly fathered a love child with former girlfriend Linda Evangelista.
According to court papers filed recently, supermodel Evangelista, who has claimed that Pinault is the father of her four-year-son Augustin James, has sought parental support from him, reported People online.
"In the filing, it says the child 'was born out of wedlock to [petitioner] Linda Evangelista, 46, and that [Pinault] acknowledged [her] allegation.'
"It says, 'It is decided that Pinault is the father of [Evangelista's son], Augustin James,'" said a source.
While, Pinault's salary is estimated at $ 5.4 million besides $ 18 billion luxury goods empire in 2010, the amount demanded by Evangelista is undecided.
"All that's left is for a magistrate to go over the father's filings and make a determination of support, which will last until the child is 21. [Pinault] is asking to be able to testify by phone," added the source.In New York, where the court papers were filed, the law requires a father to pay 17 per cent of what he earns in child support, which indicate that Pinault is likely to shell out $ 920,000 for the year.
Hayek reportedly met Pinault in 2006, when he was dating Evangelista and the recent revelations confirm that he got both women pregnant in the same year.
Hayek married Pinault in 2009 and has a three-year-old daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault.
