Supermodel Linda Evangelista and ex-boyfriend Francois-Henri Pinault squared off yesterday in a Manhattan court. She's demanding that he pay child support for their five-year-old son.

Ms Evangelista has said she has gone through $46,000 (€35,000) a month on such expenses as armed bodyguards and a round-the-clock nanny for the boy, Augustin. Her lawyer says Mr Pinault paid nothing until she went to court last year. Ms Evangelista and Mr Pinault were briefly a couple in 2005 and 2006.

He's now married to actress Salma Hayek, and is CEO of a company that owns Gucci, Balenciaga and other luxury brands.
