Salma Hayek's marriage to French business tycoon FRANÇOIS-HENRI PINAULT seemed perfect until recently released court papers revealed that Pinault has a secret love-child with supermodel Linda Evangelista. Salma Hayek met Pinault in 2006 when he was dating Evangelista, and the recent revelations confirm that he got both women pregnant in the same year, but that the birth of his child with Evangelista was hushed up.
A source who has seen the court filing papers told People Magazine: "In the filing, it says the child 'was born out of wedlock to [petitioner] Linda Evangelista, 46, and that [Pinault] acknowledged [her] allegation.It says, 'It is decided that Pinault is the father of [Evangelista's son], Augustin James.'" The source went on to say: "All that's left is for a magistrate to go over the father's filings and make a determination of support, which will last until the child is 21, [Pinault] is asking to be able to testify by phone." E! Online reported that Evangelista had previously lied about who the Father was, even creating a false back-story, claiming the baby's father was a 'New York Architect'. Evangelista gave birth to her boy in late 2006, with Hayek giving birth to VALENTINA PALOMA PINAULT in September 2007. It is unclear how much Hayek knew about the cover up.
