Linda Evangelista wants $46k a month in child support

Supermodel Linda Evangelista is reportedly requesting a whopping $46,000 a month from businessman François-Henri Pinault, the father of her 4-year-old son Augustin James.

"That would probably be the largest support order in the history of the Family Court," Support Magistrate Matthew Troy tells the New York Post. Troy will be deciding on an appropriate number when Evangelista and Pinault return to Manhattan Family Court next month.

Pinault, who allegedly has yet to pay a penny toward Augustin, has another preschooler to support as well. Valentina, 3, is his daughter with wife Salma Hayek.

The 49-year-old CEO of a luxury goods empire began dating Hayek in 2006 and married the actress in 2009. He also has two other children from a previous marriage, according to People.

Evangelista, who is worth more than $8 million dollars, says she needs the hefty payments for 24-hour nanny service, vacations, and armed drivers, among other things.

The child support request shouldn't be surprising; after all, the '90s supermodel once famously quipped, "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day."

    I am not understanding all the anger and name calling toward Evangalista. She is not asking for this money for herself. She is asking for the benefit of her kid...a kid which deserves in every way to have the same lifestyle of the kid that he had with Selma. Valentina presumably has full access to her fathers wealth, all $18 billion dollars. Evangelista's kid deserves the same. Yes, in my world, $46K a month is ridiculous, but in the world of Valentina and Augustin, it probably takes every penny of that to save for their private future schools and colleges. If I were Evangelista, I would be fighting hard to make sure that my child was treated financially the same as Selma's child, and not one penny less.

    It's a asinine situations like this that force the people like the ex-pro football player (Ray Caruth) to stuff his "baby's momma" in the trunk! The ex-model is already a millionaire herself, why does she need his money. If she needs a nanny, he should get custody of his child. I get it ladies, the family law favors the "damsel in distress", so why not rape the system for all of its benefits. The judge should laugh her a$$ out of the court house – $3000 max should come from dad. If she wants all of her personal amenities then she can front the rest. Our legal system is in dire need of an overhaul.

    Many states figure out child support based on the parents' salaries. If it was done that way in this case, she'd get a lot more than $46K per month.

    The fact is, she's a celebrity, and even though she's well paid, there are caveats to that profession. If she's got a photo shoot scheduled, there are hundreds of other people being paid to do a job that centers around her being there. If the babysitter calls in sick, she can't just call and say "sorry, I can't make it in today." Not to mention the security risk of being the child of a wealthy public figure. Living in a lower cost building with minimal security, attending public school, etc., would make him an easy target for kidnappers.

    Plus, even though he's only 4, he's already become accustomed to a certain lifestyle. Why should he be punished just because his parents split up? The father was equally responsible for creating this life, he should be equally responsible for his care. By the way, the amount she's requesting is about .00005 percent of his net worth. That's like someone who makes $100K a year only paying $5 a year in child support. Far less than a drop in the bucket.

    The average cost in the United States to raise a child to 18 years old is approx. $250K. This woman is asking for more than double that per year. OK, so daddy's rich. Grant her the $46K per month but only for two years. That's over $1M. After that, she can use some of her own millions to raise the child. After all, she does have some responsibility in the matter.

    The courts take both parents salary and combines it, from that they figure what child support will be. Some states have set limits like only 40% or 30% of the combined income will be child support. Most states favor the mother so the mother gets the child and the father has to pay the child support and gets every other weekend to see his child. Also most states do not force the mother to show what the money is used for. The mother can use the money as she sees fit and the father can only hope the money is used for his child. The family court system sucks....

This is for child support and should not be some outrageous amount, most of which wouldn't be spent on the child anyway. I hope the courts give her a reality check as she desperately needs one!!

      Really? You had a child with a billionaire and you didn't ask for any money from him? How very big of you. Sure, the child he had 6 months later with Salma currently has a trust fund worth over 12 million dollars but why should your child expect to be treated the same way just because he didn't marry your mother. And I think security is an issue, for the child of a billionaire, who's family are also billionaires.

    Boo-hoo. François-Henri's net worth is estimated at around 18 BILLION. I am sure that a little over 7 MILLION (the amount he will pay out until the kid is 18) is a mere drop in the bucket for him. You have to realize these aren't ordinary people with ordinary lifestyles, the payments are relative to what they have not what we have. 7 MILLION for him is one less home or plane he can buy- that's all.

      I don't remember saying anywhere in my posts that I was taking anyone's side. They are both adults and made decisions that have consequences in the real world. She will ask a judge for whatever amount she chooses and the judge will decide if her cause of action is justified. The child's father will learn from his mistakes or not. Either way, the outcome has no bearing on my life. It was an interesting story, and what's more interesting is the reactions that people are having to the story.
      Since you seem so concerned about my coffee intake, I assure you that I do not drink coffee. I do however provide support and assistance to my disabled mother, my sister (who is a single mother receiving no child support) and my nephew. I also give generously to charities that mean something to me, volunteer in various organizations and I stay involved with my community. Please, do not try to put my house in order because it has already been done.

      You know, life, luck, looks, talent etc. place us all in our respective financial positions. Being bitter against those you perceive as mor fortunate, or dictating to them what they should do with their money in your estimation only makes you angry and ungrateful for what you do have.

      In relative terms, simply having the cognitive ability to type on a computer makes us incomprehensibly lucky, as does having eyes to see with, a mouth to speak with and taste food with. Look, I am all for the rich paying more to help the poor, either through charity or taxes. It's been a universal human problem since we lived in caves and one family got more mammoth to eat than their neighbors. But rage and jealousy toward the rich is pointless. I wish Linda and her kid luck and health in her world, as I do you in yours.

    I've never liked her or saw the big thing about her as a model. Now I like her less and have zero respect for this greedy shallow has been. SHe's got 8 million and she's wanting money for vacations? Armed guards? Like...uh...Linda...who do you think is going to be attacking you? Ridiculous and I hope no judge in the world would grant her this sort of money. Hey ho...look at all the starving, homeless out of work woman with children in the country...and be very ashamed of yourself.

    These people live a different lifestyle than most (all?) of the trailer trash you see posting here. If expenses are proportional to income and wealth, then actually 46K per month is probably a much lower % than a couple with an consolidated income of $70K where the child support order might be, what, $1500 per month?

      There is no room in society for those who live like parasites off of the rest of us, and ruin us financially for their benefit.

      That said, if she wants a 24/7 nanny and armed guards, her 8 mil should cover it.

      now she's a parasite? 46k a month is hardly going to put a dent in this billionaire's fortune. heck, it would take 2000 years for her to go through all of his money at that pace (assuming he stopped making it).

      Correction: 2000 years assumes only $1B in fortune. Since he has $18B, the correct figure would be 36,000 years.

      Child support judgements are relative to the worth of the supporting parent and the lifestyle of the child.

      In this case, given that the father is darn near a billionair......$46K a month is no more than a bag of peanuts.

    I bet Francois is thinking......OW MY A$$... STOP REAMING MY A$$!!!!!! 46k a month is a ridiculous amount of child support for 1 child. What does the child eat for breakfast? Gold? Maybe a couple thousand dollar bills as a salad with ranch dressing for lunch? I mean come on.......

      Typical woman answer Rachel. Yes, HE is rolling in money that HE earned. She didn't do anything, but open her legs. It doesn't take half a million dollars a year to raise a kid. Let's not forget that SHE should have to pay to raise that child too, not just collect money from him and support herself off the child support.

      Oh yeah. The kids how old? And she's just asking for money now? Sorry, I don't give a rat's about her lifestyle. $46,000 is just beyond ridiculous. If she wants to live like that, let her pay for it from her own pocket. It's obvious she can afford it, and it's not his obligation to provide it for her. As he never married her, it's apparent that was never his intention. Of course, how dare he marry someone else and have a child. Woman scorned, no doubt!

      Not that I agree with it... but it sure makes it easier to understand how a husband can kill his wife. The legal system BLOWS. Whoever collects child support should have a separate account and should have to show receipts for everything!

      and I'm sorry... but no kid is worth $576,000 a year!

      B=Dog – Here in Florida, you can get an order to audit child support expenses. That way they can make sure the money is spent on the kids. There is no way she need 46K a month. If she does, she needs to reevaluate her lifestyle.

      Most of you people are judging her in terms of yourown financial situation, in which $46k a month looks stupefying. Now imagine yourselves, if you can, a poor African villager. The 200 per month you think of as child support would be two years income to her, and you would be seens as Wal-Mart shopping wastrels, throwing money away on a Lattes and lunches that could feed a child for a week. If you were living in her orld (or his) these amounts would seem perfectly reasonable.

      Oh Realy, he should have used a raincoat? How nice that women have no responsibility! She didn't do anything to get pregnant? She chose not to exercise her right to get an abortion, which the man has no right to prevent. You see, it is 100% her choice, so where is her responsibility?

      The mother is supposed to pay 1/2 of the upkeep of the kid and the father the other. She is telling us that it will cost $92,000 per month to raise that kid? Perhaps the kid should live with the father.

      Child support is not about winning the lottery. It is about providing for half the expense of raising the child.

      It takes over $1,000,000 per year to raise this kid? Wow.

      I think this mother is confusing child support with alimony.
