Salma Hayek’s Husband Breaks Silence on Child With Linda Evangelista

Venturelli/WireImage(PARIS) -- Perhaps three isn’t a crowd for François-Henri Pinault.

Actress Salma Hayek's billionaire husband has spoken out for the first time about his child with another bold-faced name, supermodel Linda Evangelista.

“He is totally integrated within my family,” Pinault told the French edition of Elle magazine about 4-year-old Augustin. “At every possible opportunity he has participated in my family life whether in France or the United States.”

Pinault added that Augustin has a relationship with his 3-year-old half-sister, Valentina, Pinault’s daughter with Hayek.

The family tree went from complicated to contentious earlier this year when Evangelista took Pinault to court, saying he hasn’t paid her a dollar (or, as the case may be, a euro) of child support since Augustin was born. Pinault also refuted those claims to Elle, saying he’s ”recognized” Augustin as his son since the day he was born.
