Warring exes Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook have gone back into battle, with Cook filing a 91-page court document packed with explosive insults and petty complaints to counter the supermodel's claim that he owes her child support, sources told the New York Post.
Sources familiar with the affidavit, filed this week in Suffolk County Supreme Court, say that Cook -- who made headlines for admitting he had an affair with an 18 year old -- says Brinkley is seeking more than $32,000 to reimburse her for expenses for their two kids, including school tuition and summer camp fees.
But Cook insists it is Brinkley who should pay him. His response endlessly catalogs everything from name-calling -- he calls her a "narcissistic egomaniac" and complains Brinkley calls him "truly narcissistic" -- to niggling about iPhone plans, family vacations and even the $34.65 Cook paid for boat storage.
Cook also alleges Brinkley made him "the scapegoat for all the evils in her life," a source says. He states he cared for their kids for five months while Brinkley was performing in "Chicago" so he should not have to pay child support during that time -- and Brinkley should pay him $25,000.
His filing claims that Brinkley even wrote an email to their son, saying that Cook "is jealous of my Broadway and London success."
Another source close to Brinkley says, "It seems Peter's at it again, filing a desperate, mind-numbing 90-page motion responding to her request for him to get up to date on child support, accusing Brinkley of all sorts of things. She has been fending off Cook's attacks since their divorce."
A rep for Brinkley had no comment. Cook told us, "I can't comment on any of that," and his lawyer did not return calls.
