And the claims are flying.
The lawyer for supermodel Linda Evangelista, who is seeking $46,000 in monthly child-support payments for her 5-year-old son Augie with French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, reportedly asserted in a Manhattan family courtroom Thursday that Pinault “suggested she terminate the pregnancy.”
Speaking in court, Pinault – since 2009 the husband of Salma Hayek – said he was “not involved in the decision” to have the child, but assured Evangelista he would “recognize the baby,” reports New York’s Daily News.
His lawyer later denied the claim that Pinault suggested the pregnancy be terminated.
