Father of the year, Peter Cook is mad as hell, and he's not gonna take it anymore!
The Christie Brinkleydivorce drama rages on, and the supermodel's self proclaimed "narcissistic" ex-husband slams her breakdown by doing it the best way he knows how… on The TODAY Show with Savannah Guthrie.
Peter claims he has "no interest in press", yet personally reached out to the show for the chance to sit down and defend himself from what he's calling a "smear campaign".
Christie Brinkley sat down with Matt Lauer on the Today Show Tuesday morning, in what was supposed to be a chat about her recurring role as Roxie Hart in Chicago.
The conversation started on a heavy note, as Christie discussed her FOUR YEAR long "character assassination" and divorce drama with estranged ex husband Peter Cook, but as the interview continued she couldn't help but break down in tears.
The supermodel will hit the stage for three weeks at Broadway's Ambassador Theatre from April 6th through the 27th.
Brinkley will then take a few weeks off before she’s back at it, this time hitting the road as she makes her national tour debut with Chicago at the Panatages Theatre in Los Angeles for two weeks at the end of May.
The IRS recently filed a tax lien against the former supermodel to the tune of $531,000 in unpaid back taxes.
A rep for Brinkley said the 57 year old was surprised by filing and "has instructed her team to resolve the matter immediately".
UPDATE: Christie Brinkley released the following statement late Monday afternoon:
"I consider myself very lucky to have been employed since I was 17 years old…I have never had an issue with the IRS or any tax liens in the past and I have dedicated my time to giving back as much and as often as possible. I was surprised to learn of the tax lien filing and took immediate steps to rectify this matter, which for most people is a private matter. I discovered the tax lien was the result of an error. My taxes will be paid in full by Wednesday, December 7th and I expect the tax lien to be released immediately thereafter. I regret not paying more attention to my accounting, but I have been, and remain focused on my whole family as both my parents navigate serious health issues. I am grateful for the outpouring of understanding and support I have received. "
As long as the IRS receives their money, we're sure all will be forgiven.
