Brinkley's Ex -- A Real Jerk Off

7/2/2008 7:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christie Brinkley's estranged husband Peter Cook sure likes his Internet porn -- spending about $3000 a month on the stuff.

Cook, who broke down crying after getting grilled on the stand today by the supermodel's lawyer, admitted he masturbated in front of a web cam and frequented escort, porn and swinger sites, all while married to Brinkley.

He also admitted that he had sex with then-teenager Diana Bianchi in his office while she worked for him. He testified he gave Bianchi nearly $300k hoping to keep their tryst on the down low. He said he would leave money for her under a rock outside his office and more cash behind a painting. He also said he bought her a $2000 watch and lingerie.

Attorneys for Brinkley have laid out a sordid story of Cook's history -- get a load of this stuff!

They've alleged, among other things, son Jack accidentally found porny pics of young girls on Cook's computer. The lawyers have also highlighted Cook's felony cocaine conviction and the time he served in jail.

Brinkley's lawyers say the 54-year-old hottie paid for everything during the marriage and learned of Cook's affair with Bianchi while giving the commencement speech at a local high school.

The former couple aren't fighting over cash, but over custody of their daughter Sailor and son Jack from her previous marriage, who Cook adopted.

Two wrongs don't make a right!!, and she should be teaching her kids this instead of dragging the donkey thru the mud. Totally not necessary and she can still take him to pasture.

Uh, spending $3000 a MONTH on porn is a lot of porn, regardless of how much money you make (are given by your spouse). How did he have time to do anything else??

And to suggest that his problems have anything to do with Christie is nuts. He's the only person responsible for his actions.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I feel bad for the hubby in a way, but especially for the kids. 1) If she had the option to keep this private, she SHOULD have. 2) Knowing from personal experience, just because you're WAY hot (such as Christie is) doesn't mean that she was taken care of her hubby behind bedroom doors. Which could have led him into a downward spiral (not that porn is a downward spiral). However - if Christie wasn't doing her part as a wife (not mom), then he should have been upfront with her & said..."I want a divorce" before cheating.

Mr. Cook has publicly embarrassed his wife. Now she's the bad guy by doing that to him? Hmmmm. $300,000 worth of porn healthy? Yeah, maybe if it was peter's money but it probably isn't. When some gold digger young girl betrays her benifactor and is left in the dirt with nothing but her designer jeans and her just dessert we as a society applaud the shmo who finally woke up. When a woman is the victim of a two timing gold digger husband, we as a society are looking to find fault with her. Shame on us!

As a female who is living with a guy, I know that GUYS LOVE PORN - period. I believe it's biological thing, to be honest, so to tar and feather this guy for liking porn and looking at porn is like him attempting to sue her for sitting around with her girlfriends gossiping all afternoon. The point is that women don't understand male behavior just like men don't understand female behavior. Women just need to understand and get used to the fact that NOTHING is going to deter a man from looking at porn. It's not even worth getting mad about, to be honest. And it doesn't matter if the female he is with it totally hot either - guys are still going to look. Now, I agree that there's enough porn out there for free, and I'm not quite sure what he has been paying for, but that's beside the point.
The key to successful relationships is communication about these issues. When she married him, she clearly didn't realize or understand that he had this porn/sex issue, just like I bet he didn't realize that he would be eventually defending himself publicly over masturbating in front of his computer, and doing so ONLY because he wants to have joint custody of his kids. In my opinion, for him to publicly acknowledge his PERSONAL behavior instead of being 'bought off' by a hacked off ex-wife speaks volumes toward his character as a father. Most guys I believe would be too humiliated to speak so publicly in such a high profile case. Remember, masturbation isn't against the law and it doesn't make you a bad person if you do it.
I've always liked Christie Brinkley, and I think it's unfortunate that he felt the need to cheat on her, but there are two sides to every story. Marriages do not just arbitrarily disintegrate - just like it takes two to tango, it also takes two for a marriage to fall apart.

I feel sorry for Christy!!! She has always tried to keep a low profile & not seek attention. Obviously she feels she has to take this tril public to try to prevent her x-husband from getting custody. If HE really cared about his kids he would not have broken up thier HOME. He sounds like he is a sex addict who needs treatment; NOT custody. As we have seen w/ her marriage to Billy Joel she has gone to huge lengths to be supportive, loving & friendly with her ex. She is obviously a good parent if Alexa is the example. So many people condemn her for letting this trial go public but she is just trying to not let this man have custody. If she were not rich, he would not want custody!!! K-FED & Cook are two men who only want custody from the rich baby mama. Christy is taking drastic measures to protect her kids even if that means public for herself.

Folks here seem to be missing a key point. It's not that he surfed porn (or even paid an astronomical amount of his wife's money to do it). It's not even that he had an affair. It's that his affair was with a TEENAGE girl, and the porn on his computer was of YOUNG GIRLS. Perhaps this article was poorly written and no one was under age, but it sure sounds like they were. Ick.

A healthy sexual appetite is all well and good, but this man sounds like a total perv!!!!! How did he accomplish anything else in his life with this level of sexual addiction? Did he spend any time with his children? Did he actually work at his architectural firm, or just use it to pick up underage girls? If he wasn't cheating, he was masturbating in front of a computer. Good Gosh - there IS more to life than Sex, for Pete's (no pun intended) sake. Put some saltpeter (no pun intended) in this idiot's oatmeal! What a freak!

Chewi, u have many valid points , however most married women if they were supporting their husbands $3000/mnth porn habit and also paying off a teenage mistress to the tune of $300,000 plus plus would be fighting like heck not to let the man with no moral values have custody of the kids. If the situation was reversed and my husband paid $3000 a month in my porn bills and he also paid for my teenage 19 yr old pool boy to keep his mouth shut ( although I filtered the money without him knowing ), he would be fighting like heck to not let me have custody of r kids.

The fact that he admitted to hiding money under a rock is hysterical!!!!!!!! I wonder if the pre-nup entitles him to more money if they share custody or if he really is just being a good dad?

I have to agree with prev. posts that having a porn habit doesn't make you a "Bad Dad", but publicly airing this dirty laundry via the worldwide media is HORRIBLE PARENTING!

Christie is shedding more light on her own shortcomings by putting this all out there for us to consume.

When MY HOT WIFEY keeps me happy in the sack, I can honestly say the porn gets neglected.

Sounds like he is the victim of SILENT FRIGIDITY!

It all goes to show, as any honest man will admit, no matter how beautiful a woman may be, after a while a guy wil become bored and seek excitement elsewhere. The issue here is how to do that without being a complete moron (a concept Mr. Cook has yet to embrace).
