Linda Evangelista Child Support Settlement

Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault Reach Settlement


A judge has approved a child support settlement between Francois-Henri Pinault and Linda Evangelista for the care of their 5-year-old son, Augustin.

The terms of the deal are undisclosed, but one source close to the proceedings told the New York Post that Pinault had "gone a long way toward meeting those original demands." Evangelista and Pinault made the agreement by phone on Monday morning, the third day of four scheduled days in court. A magistrate in Manhattan approved the deal Tuesday afternoon.

"Everybody's glad for the sake and the benefit of the child that it's done," said Pinault's lawyer, David Aronson.

Evangelista was originally reported to have asked for $46,000 a month in child support for Augustin — which would cover a 24-hour-a-day nanny and armed security guards — but her lawyer William Beslow said during testimony that that figure was overstated.

After making the agreement with Pinault Monday morning, Evangelista donned a Prada gown for Monday night's Met Gala, which celebrated the Costume Institute's 2012 exhibition Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.
