Porny Pete Shafts Ex-Lover Out of Hu$h Money

Christie Brinkley's ex Peter Cook says he doesn't owe his ex-mistress any more hush money -- because her lawyers are badmouthing him in the press. Now how does that make any sense?

Pervy Pete's lawyers say he's not going to pay Diana Bianchi any more of their $300,000 settlement because her lawyers called him a "wolf" and other choice names when he decided to blab about his marriage to Barbara Walters. They claim Bianchi's breached their confidentiality agreement.

They also claim, as the New York Post reports, Bianchi knew about sex tapes they made and agreed not to complain about them in public.

As a result, Pete is withholding the last $100K from the settlement. That's creative.
