Linda Evangelista, the 1990s supermodel who famously uttered, "We don't wake up for less than $10000 a day," was in Manhattan Family Court yesterday to demand that the father of her four-year-old son pay a staggering $46,000/month in child support, which was noted as the "largest support order in the history of the Family Court." Of course, the baby daddy happens to be fashion industry billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, who is married to Salma Hayek.

Evangelista's lawyer pointed out that while Pinault, whose company owns or co-owns brands like Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent and Puma, has a $12 million estate in trust for his three-year-old daughter with Hayek, he hasn't contributed at all to the cost of raising son August. Lawyer William Breslow explained that most of the money would go towards nannies and "gun-toting drivers," Pinault's lawyer complained about the $80,000/year cost of a nannies, "She testified that she wants to have a 24-hour nanny because she does not want to be alone with the child . Miss Evangelista, you should understand, has a worth of more than $8 million, and she earned, last year, $1.8 million."

While Support Magistrate Matthew Troy took out the $7,500/month vacation request in expenses, he did say some were credible, "These are the extraordinary expenses that may be a part of the child's life. And if there is a trial [in the support case] with a lot of publicity, there will probably be a need for two detectives to drive this kid around." Evangelista explained she works hard for her money, "On days when I do not work, I am working on my image. I have to hit the gym. I have beauty appointments. I have to work toward my next job and maintaining my image, just like an athlete... When I work, it can be a 16-hour day."
