Augustin James Evangelista’s Father Was Paying $46K Per Month For His Upbringing
Augustin’s mother Linda Evangelista received one of the largest divorce settlements in history and received a staggering $46,000 per month as child support from her ex-husband, and billionaire François-Henri Pinault. Back in 2011, there was a dispute between Augustin’s parents for the child support issue.
According to Hello Magazine, François-Henri had spoken publicly for the first time about him. The French businessman got married to actress Salma Hayek later in 2009 and was involved in a child support dispute with his ex-wife Linda in 2011, who was seeking $46,000 a month. In Linda’s defense, her lawyer’s claimed that he had been paying zero amount towards raising the four-year-old Augustin at the time.
Francois-Henri said his son is an important member of his family. Henri told that he had recognized Augustin since 2007 and that at every possible opportunity he had participated in his family life. Henri told:
“He(Augustin) is totally integrated within the family, my three-year-old daughter(Valentina, with wife Salma) treats him like a brother.”
As mentioned before, Augustin was born in October 2006 – more than eight months after his father got separated from his mother.
However, in numerous interviews prior to their court’s argument, Linda had described the man who fathered her son as a New York architect.
One of the richest men in France, Francois-Henri is chairman and CEO of the luxury goods holding company Kering and has shares in luxury brands including Gucci, Stella McCartney, and Alexander McQueen.
Moreover, there is no current news and details regarding François-Henri Pinault’s son Augustin’s education and lifestyle.
