Supermodel Linda Evangelista (left) is demanding $46,000 per month from her 4-year old child’s French billionaire father, Francois-Henri Pinault.Pinault, the CEO of Pinault-Printemps-Redoute, a Paris-based congolmerate that owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent and Bottega Veneta, has a penchant for pretty ladies. He’s currently married to Salma Hayek, with whom he has a three-year-old daughter. His family is worth an estimated $11.5 billion.

The New York Post reports that the support magistrate in charge of the case thinks that this could be the largest support order in the history of Family Court. 

Evangelista’s lawyers claim that Pinault has given zero support to the child. The $46,000 that Evangelista is demanding will go towards nannies, drivers, and security detail for Augustin James, the model’s son.  The judge seems to be sympathetic to the demands because of the press this case will generate, apart from the $7,500 she wants for “vacation expenses.”
