Samantha Perelman Should Say No to a Bully -- Even If It's Her Father
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I want to know how Samantha Perelman sleeps at night. Does she toss and turn and feel a tad guilty that she allowed her billionaire father to unleash an epic frivolous battle against her dead mother's family? After all, in society columnist Claudia Cohen's will, she specifically begged that her ex-husband Ronald Perelman "preserve" these family relationships that she wrote, no boldly wrote in big splashy capital letters, "are EXTREMELY important to me." Now in a Hackensack, New Jersey courtroom, 23 year-old Samantha Perelman will take the stand Monday and attempt to defend why a billionaire's daughter who virtually holds a key to Fort Knox allowed her father for five years to knock down and sucker punch her ailing wheelchair bound grandfather in an attempt to grab a larger share of his estate and make as Robert Cohen said in an affidavit, "the remaining years of my life as unbearable as possible." However, unbearable didn't mean beatable. As Fortune Magazine's James Bandler r ...

Linda Evangelista And Her French Fashion Tycoon Ex-Husband Meet In Court Over Her $50,000-A-Month Expenses
Business Insider - almost 5 years
NEW YORK (AP) — She has one of the world's most famous faces. He's a billionaire fashion CEO. And their 5-year-old son is at the center of a bitter, big-money child support fight. Supermodel Linda Evangelista and ex-boyfriend Francois-Henri Pinault, a French business tycoon now married to actress Salma Hayek, faced off Thursday in the utilitarian environs of a Manhattan family court. She wants a court to make him pitch in for child-rearing expenses she has tallied at nearly $50,000 a month — for armed bodyguards and a round-the-clock nanny, among other costs. The trial is offering a public glimpse into the lives of the boldface and beautiful, from the vagaries of a modeling career to the peripatetic lifestyle of a movie star's child. The first day of testimony included a detailed description of a $12 million mansion and Pinault discussing his brief breakup with Hayek before their 2009 marriage. As Pinault lawyer David Aaronson put it in an opening statement Thursday, it's "dif ...

Linda Evangelista Wants $46,000 A Month For Child Support
The Inquisitor - almost 5 years
Super model Linda Evangelista and her ex François-Henri Pinault will head to court tomorrow to discuss child support for their 5-year-old son Augustin. Evangelista said that she needs $46,000 a month (that’s about $1500 a day) to care for her son. Evangelista said that she needs $46,000 to pay for security, a personal driver, round the clock nannies, and private school. When a judged asked Evangelista why she needed to have more than one nanny, Evangelista said: “When I work, it can be a 16-hour day. On days when I do not work, I am working on my image. I have to hit the gym. I have beauty appointments. I have to work toward my next job and maintaining my image, just like an athlete.” ABC reports that François-Henri Pinault and Evangelista dated for a few months at the end of 2005. When Evangelista found out that she was pregnant Pinault was already involved with Salma Hayek, his current wife. Pinault, heir to an $11 billion estate and chairman of luxury company PPR (which ...
