After series of failed affairs, Linda started dating billionaire-boyfriend Hard Rock founder Peter Morton. The couple was very open about their relationship and we actually thought they might end up getting married.

However, after dating for about seven years, because of the series of disagreement they broke up. She met Peter when she was pregnant with her son Augustin. 

Her pregnancy can be one of the reasons behind the breakup. The couple split in 2010 and a source addressed New York Post that,

'Peter is very settled in Malibu and loves LA, while Linda liked to spend time in Canada and with her friends in New York.'

Currently, we have not found any news relating her affairs. Either she is actually single or she is hiding her boyfriend from the media to avoid useless controversy.

Whatever may be the reason, the diva is not with anyone in the present context.

A post shared by Linda Evangelista (@lindaevangelista) on

A source told PEOPLE,

'In the filing, it says the child ‘was born out of wedlock to [petitioner] Linda Evangelista, 46, and that [Pinault] acknowledged [her] allegation. It says, ‘It is decided that Pinault is the father of [Evangelista’s son], Augustin James.'

"All that’s left is for a magistrate to go over the father’s filings and make a determination of support, which will last until the child is 21. [Pinault] is asking to be able to testify by phone."

Here is a short report on Linda fighting for support on HLN: 

Pinault has an attractive salary of $5.4 billion with a net worth of about $16-18 billion. Hence, the law enforced him to pay 17% of his earning to the child's support.

Moreover, Linda is single at present living a wonderful life with her son James.
