Former supermodel Christie Brinkley's ex-husband Peter Cook has separated from his wife.

The architect exchanged vows with Suzanne Shaw in New York in February, 2012, but she filed for a legal separation and moved out of their marital home with her daughter in February (14), according to the New York Post.

Cook began dating Shaw after he split from Brinkley in 2008.

He was married to the former supermodel, with whom he has one child, from 1996 to 2008.
