Christie Brinkley Settles Case with Ex: Statement

Share

Christie’s exclusive statement:

“Once and for all, this is my last word on the subject. Let it be known, that I “moved on” from my marriage to Peter Cook the moment a police offer tapped me on the shoulder and informed me that “my husband had been cheating on me in a two year affair with  his 17 year-old-daughter.” Since that moment, it has been an odyssey of frustration as I have navigated the court system with one goal to find peace and protection for my family from the various forms of abuse at the hands of a narcissist.

I had a prenup, a confidentiality agreement, and a “civility clause” that all cost a lot of money, but were for all intents and  purposes  ignored and useless against the extended character assassination and extortion attempts I have endured.  While extortion for money he was not owed was Peter Cook’s shameless goal in this last round, I was seeking respite from narcissist abuse by fighting for the right to enforce the “No Contact Rule” which is imperative for persons, mostly women, dealing with a person diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

In a late night settlement, I finally won the right to establish boundaries with provisions such as an intermediary to deal with email bullying, verbal and emotional abuse.  I am hopeful the steps taken will now protect my Constitutional right to quiet enjoyment and peace and serve as a template for the courts to help others avoid the lengthy trials and tribulations that cost taxpayers money, and at a cost to families that CAN be calculated in dollars. But its the emotional toll which can only be measured in tears that must be considered by the courts and media alike.”
