Model Christie Brinkley has fired back at ex-husband Peter Cook over his decision to go public about their marriage split in an upcoming TV news special, accusing the architect of breaching a confidentiality agreement.
Cook has taped a 20/20 interview with Barbara Walters, which will air in America on Friday (10Oct08), and his former wife is livid.
In a segment of the TV chat, which has already leaked in online news reports, Cook reveals the affair which led to the break-up of his marriage started because he found "a connection" with his teenage mistress that he didn't have with his wife.
His comments have upset his ex, and her attorney, Robert Stephan Cohen, has fired off the following statement: "It is a measure of Peter Cook's character that he has breached the confidentiality agreement that is in the divorce settlement and has sought to present this distorted one sided view of his marriage."
Brinkley is also angry that her ex has seen fit to comment publicly about the child custody settlement that resulted from a bitter court battle last year (07).
Cohen's statement continues, "Mr. Cook had his days in court, testified on his own behalf and ultimately agreed with the view of the children's court appointed attorney and psychiatrist that the children should live principally with their mother and that she should be the sole custodial parent."
Cook and Brinkley's divorce was finalised in Suffolk County, New York on 3 October (08).
