Linda Evangelista and Salma Hayek's hubby Francois-Henri Pinault settled their child custody battle on Monday, is reporting.

According to the New York Post, Linda and Francois-Henri reached a settlement by telephone, instead of the Canadian supermodel having to take the stand for the second time and reveal private things about Francois-Henri in her testimony.

The terms of the deal have not yet been made public, but Linda was asking her French billionaire ex for $46,000 per month in child support for their five-year-old son, Augie.

"Everybody's glad for the sake and the benefit of the child that it's done," Francois-Henri's attorney, David Aronson, told reporters outside the courtroom on Monday.

Linda's initial argument for the $46,000 was that the money would go toward the cost of ex-NYPD detectives to double up as chauffeurs at $15,000 a month and a 24-hour nanny costing $7,000 a month.


Salma had a daughter with Francois-Henri in 2007 and the two were married on Valentine's Day in 2009. Linda kept the identity of Augie's father a secret until July 2011, when it was revealed that Francois-Henri is the father.
