Christie Brinkley Breaks Down While Discussing Ex-Husband's Allegations

It's been nearly four years since Christie Brinkley (photosChristie Brinkley photos) and Peter Cook divorced but the former supermodel says her ex-husband continues to make life miserable.

Cook has accused Brinkley of using their divorce to promote her return to Broadway in Chicago.

"Since the day that he realized that I wasn't coming back, there has been a real character assassination going on," Brinkley said in an appearance with Matt Lauer on 'Today'.

"I asked for and got a confidentiality agreement with the original divorce. I alone have maintained the confidentiality agreement. I had offers for a sympathetic show from Oprah, Jeff Zucker offered me an hour on primetime. Everybody asked me to come on. I did not want to do it."

"I have turned the other cheek," said the 53-year-old. "There's not one quote from me, anywhere. This is the first time I've ever been on a show to talk about it."

"I have never gone on a TV show. Peter went on Barbara Walters, he went on Geraldo Rivera, he went back on Geraldo Rivera, he went on Good Morning America. So let's ask him, why is he doing that?"

"I have never taken part in name calling. The only thing that have ever said, after my second trial, I simply said as a public service: 'divorcing a narcissist.' Because I'm not alone. I've gotten hundreds of letters from women that are going through this. It's not easy."

"I just want peace," she said, tearing up. "And every time I have any joy, or any kind of success in anything he has to try to destroy it."
