How do I put this politely? Salma Hayek’s husband and baby daddy, Francois-Henri Pinault, sounds like a huge douchebag. Pinault is currently embroiled in a child support battle with ex Linda Evangelista, with whom he has a five-year-old son, Augie, and the French billionaire is not looking so good.
