Pinault is a French tycoon who works with luxury goods and is married to Salma Hayek now. Evangelista testified recently that Pinault told her she should get an abortion when she informed him that she was pregnant.

Pinault testified in the case as well and said the following when he was asked if he thought Evangelista purposely tried to get pregnant during their romance:

Evangelista has requested $552,000 per year, which comes out to $46,000 per month, and this includes $175,000 for a personal bodyguard and a personal driver. It also includes $90,000 per year for a full-time nanny and a part-time nanny. Evangelista also would like her son, Augie, to have the same lifestyle as Pinault’s daughter Valentina. Valentina has a $12 million mansion in California sitting in a trust for her.
