The supermodel’s bitter ex says she’s harming her kids by broadcasting her custody battles in the media!

Supermodel Christie Brinkley‘s divorce saga with ex-husband Peter Cook heats up — he’s accusing her of using their custody battle to get publicity for her return to Broadway! “She can use her celebrity to get the media to say ‘He’s a bad guy,'” Peter says, according to The Daily Mail. “You know… I’m not trying to sell tickets to anything.”

“I don’t want this press,” the 53-year-old Hamptons architect continues. “I’m not interested in it. And there’s got to be a better way for her to do it. Go do a charitable act or something, get your name in the paper. But stop throwing your family under the bus.”

Christie, 58, is returning to the stage in the musical Chicago, and Peter says she’s making their latest court battle coincide for press.

“I don’t know how you can ever rationalize your way out of fighting to have this private family matter become so public,” he says. “And children will live with it forever. I mean, it used to be 40 years ago, it was in the newspaper and it ended up under a bird somewhere. But now it’s Google eternity. This will never go away for my children.”

But Christie’s attorney issued a statement in retaliation to Peter’s claims:

“Peter Cook has repeatedly broken the confidentiality agreement that Christie has continued to uphold. Peter is the only one to go on national television spewing sexist, disgraceful, demonstrably false lies, which gives a taste of what Christie has had to endure since Peter betrayed his marriage vows. Peter embarrassed himself and hurt his family by having an affair with a teenage girl and admitting to an extensive pornography habit.”

HollyMoms — do you think Christie is after ticket sales or is Peter just an angry ex?
