Last month I blogged about Linda Evangelista’s request for child support from Salma Hayek’s husband, François-Henri Pinault. Now, reports are surfacing as to exactly how much Evangelista is requesting and the (un)reasonableness of it.
To an ordinary middle class person, $46,000 may seem a whole heck of a lot, some reports are contending that said $46,000 per month is actually reasonable and appropriate. Let’s take a deeper look.
-The monthly payments for the four-year-old’s three nannies alone total over $23,000 a month.
– The boy’s driver costs $10,000 per month.
– A minimum of $3,000 per month for posh fashionable clothes for the tot.
– The boy’s educational expenses total around $2,500 a month.
– The boy’s sports, tutoring, and other extra-curriculars would total to anywhere between $2,000 and $5,000 per month.
Apparently, the lifestyle of children of the rich and famous is quite hefty. If this is what the child is accustomed to, then said expenses would probably be reasonable in a court of law.
But of course, in California, the determination of child support is based on timeshare and the gross income of the parties, among other factors. In a high income case as this, courts may deviate from guideline.
