Linda Evangelista testifies at NYC child-support trial about her modeling career
NEW YORK (AP) ' Supermodel Linda Evangelista has taken the witness stand in her child-support fight with a French billionaire. So far, she's painted for a New York court a picture of her rise from teen pageant contestant to Vogue cover girl.
In testimony Friday, Evangelista described a career that's not what it was in the 1980s and '90s, but still has her on the cover of the current Italian Vogue. She's expected to resume testifying Monday.
She and Francois-Henri Pinault (frahn-SWAH' ahn-REE' peeh-NOH') are locking horns over what, if anything, he should pay toward the care of their 5-year-old son. Pinault is CEO of the luxury-brands conglomerate PPR.
Evangelista has said she's spending $46,000 a month on the boy's expenses, including armed bodyguards.
Pinault was grilled about his own spending earlier Friday.
