Christie Brinkley and her fourth husband, architect Peter Cook, are going their separate ways after 10 years of marriage, Christie’s rep revealed Tuesday.
Here Christie and Peter are with Jack and Sailor.
“Yes, it’s true. The couple has separated,” publicist Elliot Mintz says in a statement.
Brinkley and Cook, 47, who live in New York’s posh Hamptons, have a daughter, Sailor, 8.
Brinkley, 52, was previously married to artist Jean-François Allaux, Billy Joel and developer Richard Taubman. Whoa! That’s a lot of marriages!
Christie and Billy Joel have a 20-year-old daughter, Alexa, and Christie and Richard have an 11-year-old son, Jack, whom Cook adopted after he and Brinkley wed in 1996.
“Christie’s immediate concern is for her children, and she’s hoping during this obviously difficult time that people will be kind enough to respect her privacy,” Mintz said.
This is so shocking, because Christie and her family were constantly being featured in magazines like Redbook as having the perfect, idyllic life in the Hamptons. They seemed so normal and down-to-earth! Usually hubby #4 is the one you look forward to growing old with! Oh well.
