Former WAG wins legal battle and then paints the town red.
Vanessa Perroncel celebrated her birthday with an expensive night out in London last night, just a day after winning a child support battle with ex-boyfriend Wayne Bridge.
The French lingerie model, 33, looked chic in a black and white silk halterneck dress at the exclusive Zuma restaurant in Knightsbridge last night.
Her girlie night out came after a court ruled she will receive over £1million in child support payments from Bridge before their son Jaydon turns 18.
Perroncel is said to be ‘over the moon’ after Manchester City defender Bridge agreed to double his maintenance payments from £3,000 to between £6,000 and £7,000-a-month to help her look after their three-year-old son.
The deal was agreed by lawyers at the Family Division of London’s High Court on Friday after two days of legal discussions.
A friend of Miss Perroncel’s told the Daily Star: ‘She is over the moon, she has just found out she has got what she wanted.
‘It’s only money, she never wanted a house or anything, just enough to ensure Jaydon doesn’t want for anything, which is only right.’

Another friend added to the Daily Mirror: ‘Vanessa is very, very happy this is finally over. She did not make any unreasonable demands but feels the agreement takes into account Wayne’s earnings, which add to more than £350,000-a-month.
‘It was her birthday on Tuesday and now she feels like she can have a joint celebration.’
Speaking after the settlement was made on Friday, Miss Perroncel’s spokesman Max Clifford explained: ‘All she ever wanted was a reasonable and fair settlement and for Wayne to stay in touch for the benefit of Jaydon.
‘She is a private person, she doesn’t like a lot of what has been written, she just wants the deal to be private and amicable.’

Miss Perroncel has denied she was paid up to £800,000 not to talk about her five-month affair with Chelsea’s John Terry.
The 33-year-old is now thought to be planning a revealing interview to ‘set the record straight’.
A source told the Mirror: ‘She will not be drawn on her affair with John Terry, but she may now put the record straight about a few things.’

OK now we don’t like this sordid affair anymore than you do (but we secretly can’t get enough of this gossip stuff) but we did quite like the pics we found. Vanessa Perroncel scrubs up quite well I am sure you will agree. In terms of the court case it seems both sides got what they wanted and a figure in between what the two sides wanted was agreed and in the end as always it was the lawyers who won!
Anyway, here are more pics.
