Christie Brinkley brought to tears while discussing divorce on ‘Today’

Christie Brinkley appeared on the “Today” show Tuesday to discuss her starring turn in the musical “Chicago.” But the model was brought to tears, as the conversation was dominated by talk of her ugly divorce from architect Peter Cook.

Brinkley said she and her ex-husband agreed not to speak publicly about the divorce, which was finalized in 2008, but Cook did not honor this agreement.

“I have turned the other cheek,” Brinkley said. “There’s not one quote from me, anywhere. This is the first time I’ve ever been on a show” to discuss the divorce.

As Brinkley told Matt Lauer, Cook gave an interview to Barbara Walters in 2008, where he discussed having an affair and feeling unhappy in his marriage. In February, he called his ex-wife a “narcissistic egomaniac” in court filings that allege Brinkley owes Cook money.

“She can use her celebrity to get the media to say, ‘He’s a bad guy,’ ” Cook recently told ABC News. “You know … I’m not trying to sell tickets to anything. I don’t want this press. I’m not interested in it.”

Brinkley — who filed her own suit in November, alleging Cook has bullied her, and seeking $172,000 in fines and education costs for their two children — told Lauer that Cook was “diagnosed by a court-appointed forensic psychiatrist as a bona fide malignant or extreme narcissist.” She said she wants the court to protect her from Cook.

With tears in her eyes, Brinkley said, “I just want peace. And every time I have any joy or any kind of success in anything, he has to try to destroy it.”
