According to the latest news in gossip magazines, Salma Hayek stormed off in a fit of jealousy and anger because of the child support agreement her husband, Francois Henri Pinault, has signed with Linda Evangelista. Evangelista is the mother of his son Augustin James, a child just 11 months older than Valentina Paloma, Hayek’s own child with Pinault.
We have all seen the Mexican actress displaying her beauty and her amazing figure at the Cannes Film Festival in France. She looked stunning in a black and silver costume at the premiere of “Madagascar 3.” To the Vanity Fair–Gucci party she wore a blue sequined suit that revealed her elegant, yet still sexy side.
Recently, Hayek, as a producer, was involved in the advertising campaign of a major fast food chain in the U.S., in which she plays three different characters.
You would think everything is perfect in Salma Hayek’s life, but apparently… it’s not.
Pinault and Evangelista’s child
Pinault and Evangelista had a relationship for four months between 2005 and 2006, from which son Augustin James was born. Pinault says he has always “acknowledged” the child as his own. In fact the boy has his surname, and Hayek’s daughter Valentina treats him as a brother.
He had the baby with Evangelista during a break in his relationship with Salma Hayek, with whom he later reunited and married in 2009. Maybe what really bothers Hayek is that the boy is her husband’s love child.
Evangelista kept the identity of the father of her child a secret for a while. But once she spilled the beans, the model began a legal dispute over how much money the father should pay in child support.
Pinault was accused by Evangelista of not paying any child support since the baby’s birth. Pinault countered that he was prepared from the outset to economically participate in the education of Augustin, but that the supermodel did not respond to his offer.
Evangelista argued that she spent $46,000 per month 0n armed guards and a nurse who works for her 24/7, as well as other expenses for their 5-year-old son.
Linda Evangelista, after several days of negotiations in a Manhattan court, reached an agreement with the millionaire businessman to receive $40,000 a month for child support.
Salma Hayek’s rage
However, it is not the money that seems to be bothering Hayek but the fact that Pinault’s child with Evangelista is spending his next holidays with his daddy. This means that Hayek will have the kiddo living around her own child Valentina for the summer.
According to sources close to the Latina actress, it seems that this news provoked Salma Hayek’s jealousy to the extent that she won’t put up with the situation and may even ask for a divorce.
Everything sounds a little off, though, because Salma Hayek knew that her husband was father to Evangelista’s child, and that he must comply with his obligations as such. If there is, in fact, a divorce on the horizon for Hayek, there might be other reasons for it.
