French fashion tycoon Francois-Henri Pinault comes from a family worth some $13 billion. His great wealth was at the crux of a nasty court case involving his one-time girlfriend, supermodel Linda Evangelista, who claimed the billionaire heir hadn't paid a cent (or euro, as the case may be) in child support for the son he fathered five years earlier. Since then, Pinault has married another beauty, actress Salma Hayek (pictured with the Gucci mogul and their daughter). Pinault implied in court that he thought Evangelista may have gotten pregnant on purpose during their brief relationship. Lawyers for the cover girl countered that he'd lavished money and attention on his child with Hayek while ignoring his son Augie. The couple settled for an undisclosed amount in May.
