Supermodel Linda Evangelista wants a staggering amount in child support from Salma Hayek’s billionaire husband, and alleges that he has yet to provide support.
According to reports, Evangelista needs the mega-amounts of cash to cover things like security and drivers ($175,000 a year), and $80,000 for a full-time nanny – so she can maintain her model image, hitting the gym and making her beauty appointments!
I’m not sure how Evangelista arrived at the $46,000 per month figure, but the guy’s extraordinarily wealthy and if he has in fact been a deadbeat dad, I don’t see anything wrong in her going for it. Remember, if you don’t ask, you don’t get and it’s just the starting point in what will inevitably be a major negotiation.
What do you think? Has Linda gone too far? Or does she – and her son – deserve every penny? Post below – and watch "Showbiz Tonight" today, exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT for more on this heated debate.
