NEW YORK — In the midst of a trial that brought tales of the high life and high fashion to family court, supermodel Linda Evangelista and a billionaire French businessman have reached an agreement to end their child-support fight, their lawyers said Monday.

Evangelista, Francois-Henri Pinault and their attorneys planned to provide details to a magistrate today. “Everybody is very glad that it’s over,” said Pinault lawyer David Aronson.

The settlement came in the midst of a trial over how much, if anything, Pinault should pay toward the care of their 5-year-old son. Pinault is the CEO of a company that owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent and other top-flight fashion lines; he’s now married to actress Salma Hayek.

Both Pinault and Evangelista had testified at the trial, answering questions that delved into her career, his high-flying finances and his limited relationship with the boy. Evangelista had been due to continue testifying Monday.

In legal papers, she had said she was spending $46,000 a month on armed bodyguards, a 24-hour-a-day nanny and other expenses for the boy, Augustin, nicknamed Augie. He was born in 2006 after a four-month relationship; Pinault said he and Evangelista spent only about seven days together in all.

William Beslow, Evangelista’s lawyer, said she willingly paid all the child’s expenses at first, but she now needs some help. Beslow said her roughly $1.8 million-a-year income sank last year because a major contract with L’Oreal ended.

Pinault legally recognized Augie as his son in 2007. Pinault said Evangelista asked for what he considered an unreasonable amount of child support, he countered with another offer, and he didn’t get a response for years. She went to court in 2010.

‘Octomom’ house auction is delayed

LA HABRA, Calif. — The auction of “Octomom” Nadya Suleman’s California home has been postponed for two weeks.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom house in La Habra was scheduled to be sold to the highest bidder in a foreclosure auction Monday. But the company organizing the auction, Priority Posting and Publishing Inc., announced that the bidding has been rescheduled for May 21 with the agreement of trustees involved in the sale.

Suleman is the mother of 14 children, including octuplets born in 2009. She recently declared bankruptcy, listing assets of no more than $50,000 and debts of as much as $1 million.

Her father bought the home for her two years ago with a $115,000 down payment and $450,000 promissory note.

Records show she owes more than $475,000 on the house.

The house that Ruth … lived in is put up for sale

SUDBURY, Mass. — The suburban Boston home where Babe Ruth lived after he had been sent to the New York Yankees is for sale, and the asking price is more than Ruth made in his entire playing career.

The estate known as Home Plate Farm in Sudbury, Mass., is on the market for $1.65 million.

Ruth, who for decades held the major league career home run record with 714, lived in the home from 1922 to 1926, said broker Scott Adamson, of Coldwell Banker Residential brokerage.

“This is a great old antique house,” Adamson said Monday, estimating the home dates to about 1800. “It’s got a ton of modern features, but I think Babe Ruth would still recognize it even today because it retains many of the original features.”

Ruth played for the Red Sox from 1914 to 1919.
