François-Henri Pinault: I Am Not a Deadbeat Dad!

by at . Comments

Linda Evangelista is asking for $46,000 in child support payments from Francois-Henri Pinault. Per month. That is not a typo.

Now, for the first time since the public learned he's the father of Evangelista's four-year old son, Augustin, Pinault is speaking out about the situation - and denying all charges that he's been "paying zero" toward the child's well-being, as stated by the super model's attorney.

François-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek

In an interview with the French issue of Elle, Pinault says he has "recognized" his son since 2007 and that "at every possible opportunity he has participated in my family life whether in France or the United States."

The boy is "totally integrated within my family," adds Pinault, saying he's even interacted with Valentina, the child Pinault fathered with Hayek in 2007. The billionaire and the actress were married in 2009.
