Angry Protesters Hold Salma Hayek's Billionaire Husband Captive During Paris Riots

Protesters swarmed the vehicle of Salma Hayek’s billionaire husband Francois-Henri Pinault in Paris Wednesday, holding the French CEO captive in a car for an hour.

Pinault, 46, is the CEO of luxury brand firm PPR, which controls Gucci, Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reported.

The 50 protesters, angry over the 1,200 job cuts at two of his stores, held Pinault captive until riot police rescued him with batons and shields.

Pinault married Hayek in a Valentine’s Day ceremony in Paris. The couple has a daughter.
