It seems like when you’ve done it once (divorce, I mean) in Hollywood, you tend to do a repeat performance, or two, three or four…after that, well you’re just doing a Liz.
Well, this week the latest celeb to head for splitsville is all-American gal, ex-supermodel Christie Brinkley. After telling the media just a few months ago on how “full and rich” her life was, the former “Uptown Girl” is now leaving husband #4, her husband of 10 years, architect Peter Cook.
The story is that Peter Cook was a naughty boy, having had a tawdry affair with his 18- year-old-assistant – and surprise, surprise, Christie found out and has now promptly filed for divorce.
Norman Sheresky, Peter Cook’s lawyer confirmed that his client was indeed served with divorce papers, and that the next step was negotiations for a settlement.
Cook’s business partner David Aronson said that the remorseful Cook was hoping that he and Christie could work through their marital problems, but since the legal papers had been presented, he had no choice but to respect Christie’s wishes.
