Salma Hayek's Husband Pledges $113M to Rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral

Salma Hayek‘s husband François-Henri Pinault has pledged €100 million (over US $113 million) to help rebuild the fallen Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

In a statement obtained by French newspaper Le Figaro, Pinault, 56, said, “My father (François Pinault) and myself have decided to release a sum of €100 million from our Artemis funds (the family holding company) to participate in the effort that will be necessary for the complete reconstruction of Notre-Dame.”

Pinault’s donation is the first major one announced. Through Kering, an international luxury group, his family owns and controls a number of businesses including Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga.

The elder Pinault, who is 82, is worth an estimated $37.3 billion, according toBloomberg’sBillionaires Index“.
