Supermodel Linda Evangelista is petitioning a family court in Manhattan to award her $46,000 a month in child support for her 5-year-old son Augie, who was fathered by French billionaire François-Henri Pinault.
Manhattan divorce lawyer Raoul Felder told the NY Daily News that the Canadian beauty’s expensive requests aren’t likely to be granted by the court, despite Pinault’s vast coffers.
“She’s in for a big surprise,” Manhattan divorce lawyer Raoul Felder told the NY Daily News, intimating she won’t be able to justify why she needs said amount. “I wouldn’t be counting the money yet … most of the time, there are formulas for this.
“There’s no windfall in child support.”
In addition to the financial requests, Linda is also seeking Pinault buy her a home.
Fun fact: Linda was named to People’s 50 Most Beautiful People In the World list in 1990.
