New York – French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault and supermodel Linda Evangelista have reached a settlement in their contentious battle over child support for their five-year-old son. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the two reached an agreement this week, with the details having yet to be revealed publicly.

Evangelista was reportedly seeking $46,000 per month in child support from the billionaire after legal papers indicated she claimed she was spending that amount on monthly expenses for bodyguards and other items in relation to caring for the child.

Pinault, who is married to actress Salma Hayek, also has a 4-year-old daughter with Hayek, and two other children with someone he was married to prior.

David Aronson, an attorney for Pinault, is quoted in the report as stating of the recent case, “Everybody is very glad that it’s over.”
