Battle of the A-listers

An A-list battle has broken out between Linda Evangelista and Salma Hayek, both of whom have had children with billionaire François-Henri Pinault. What makes it all even more awkward is that Salma is married to the randy Frenchman, and they have a three year old child, Valentina, while Linda is the mother of four year-old Augustin. Yep, that's a fairly small window...

Linda has now taken Pinault to court for maintenance, arguing that she needs at least $46,000-a-month child support. According to The Daily Mail, Evangelista argued, 'He's just been sitting back, paying zero.'

Pinault's lawyers hit back, saying, '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 $8million, and she earned, last year, $1.8 million.'

Meanwhile Linda defended her mammoth payout request, arguing that she worked extremely hard, '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.' Yep, we feel really, terribly sorry for you, it sounds dreadful...
