Mexican actress Salma Hayek's billionaire husband Francois-Henri Pinault was held hostage in his car Wednesday by his staff who were angered over 1,200 job cuts at two of his stores.

Mirror online reports, Pinault, 46, the boss of retail empire PPR which owns Gucci shops, was held for an hour by 50 staff members after a meeting in Paris until freed by riot police.

Pinault, who married Hayek, 42, six weeks ago, was the fifth "boss-napping" victim in a month. The union said: "We wanted talks to save jobs."
