NEW YORK, N.Y. - A New York City judge has approved a child support settlement between supermodel Linda Evangelista and a billionaire French businessman.
Lawyers for Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault appeared Tuesday before a Manhattan magistrate.
The model was in court. The businessman wasn't. Everyone declined to comment afterward.
Details of the deal haven't been made public.
Evangelista previously said she was spending $46,000 a month on armed bodyguards, a 24-hour-a-day nanny and other expenses for the couple's 5-year-old son.
Pinault is CEO of the luxury-brands company PPR. He and Evangelista dated for about four months.
Evangelista says she willingly paid all their child's expenses at first but now needs help. Pinault's lawyer has said $46,000 a month would be too much.
Pinault is married to actress Salma Hayek.
