Christie Brinkley's Ex:

'Today' Show Cryfest Was

Cunning and Shameless

3/28/2012 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christie Brinkley's ex-husband claims the supermodel's teary appearance on "Today" was nothing more than a "cunning and shameless" attempt to "garner public sympathy by "dishonest means."

Peter Cook released a statement ... BLASTING Brinkley's interview with Matt Lauer ... saying, “Christie was entirely dishonest about the circumstances surrounding the current court action which was precipitated by her and ... is doing further damage to our children."

In case you missed the "Today" show interview yesterday, an emotional Brinkley claimed Cook has been on a mission to destroy her life since they broke up.

Cook is clearly unhappy ... his statement continues, "I am also shocked by the blatant lies she told regarding our divorce proceedings of four years ago, including denying the indisputable fact that she fought for an open courtroom despite the warnings it would harm our children.”

 "[Brinkley] will stop at nothing to continue the drama in our lives in order to harass me and keep herself relevant in the media."

Cook also claims Brinkley is simply still bitter from when he cheated on her with an 18-year-old woman during their marriage ... saying, "Clearly, Christie does not believe I was punished enough four years ago for my indiscretions in our marriage, but for the sake of our children I wish she would find a way to move on.”

Brinkley must be a horror to live with, no wonder she's been divorced four times.

Cook is a complete & utter s***bag. Fact. For real. Seriously. Fact fact fact. - Too bad it wasn't an open courtroom Pete, so much of your s***baggyness would have really been out in the open.

Peter the pervert is a lying pedophile man whore who used Christie Brinkley for $ and recognition. He needs to go back under that rock and stay there.

sorry her is the ass in this. What he did to Christie was beyond disgusting, he is living the good life courtesy of Christie, having a child with her and then having an affair with basically a child too...he is a pedophile pig, and should never ever be forgiven. Keep your head up Christie, he is an ass you always have deserved better than the men you ended up with, most of us women do...most men are probably insecure over her looks and fame and success, she really needs a MUCH older man who is not a 12 year old stuck in a middle aged mans body...Peter Cook is a d i c k...

I agree, She is such a fake! It was reported by everyone of her husbands that she is fickle and doesn't like sex at all. No wonder she's been married so many times? No wonder they all played around on her! I can't stand her myself. You can see right through her how fake she is! She needs to stop crying wolf! Get over it! It just continues to show how immature she is. She's just trying to get attention and not even thinking of the children.

I think she had alligator tears! How can you have 4 marriages and they are ALL the mans fault? I don't agree with Peter Cook sleeping with a young woman, but I'm starting to see that Christie looks like a control freak and he probably got tired of being MR BRINKLEY. STop making your children hate their father Ms Brinkley!!!

And why on earth would anyone place any credibility on anything her shameless ex ever says? I cannot believe this guy's addiction to himself, the media, trying so hard to convince us how charming he is and revising the facts.

I don't think Brinkley is the sweet, innocent thing she'd like people to think. After what, four or five marriages, (all of which lasted less than 10 yrs), 3 kids by different fathers, (one of which she skied down a mountain to marry, then left him, taking the kid with her in a cloud of secrecy and blame (of him, of course) in less than a year.

Hmm, I think little Christy has a few quirks and secrets of her own that she's been adept at hiding by playing the blame card. Wah Wah

She has always been a drama queen, and most of the times she knows it works.
She is a selfish brat no wonder her ex was driven to seek solice in a 18 year old.
She even competes with her older daughter ahh...Hmmm Oh! Whachamacallher!! Nevermind!

Christie is guilty of being inarticulate==the person who is required to pay child support has the power to harrass, by not paying, by being late with it, by requiring endless struggles to get it, they also can be late picking up the children, cancel at the last minute and do all other kinds of things to make the mother constantly unsettled. It is clear to me that this man is killing her with a thousand paper cuts, she while trying to defend herself, is accused of neglecting her children by defending herself. She was ambushed by Matt who was clearly not supportive and had a preconceived belief that she is neglecting her children by speaking out. Noone on NBC was supportive. In fact she was abused by NBC. Four years post betrayal and trauma is NOT a long time--You blew it NBC.

He is EXACTLY like my ex-husband.Totally narcissistic, projects his behaviors on to her and is in V for vendetta mode. I have been tolerating it for over 6 years.:( Their OCD side won't allow them to give up and just move on.

Many of you can not begin to understand the pain you feel after your partner cheats. With a 19 yr old no less. It can take years to heal from that. I am sure many of those hateful comments are posted by men,(typical) if they are posted by women then have some compassion.
