Christie Brinkley, Peter Cook Narrowly Miss Each Other In Hamptons

Christie Brinkley and ex-husband Peter Cook had a near-miss over Labor Day weekend in the Hamptons, the New York Post's Page Six reports.

According to the column, Brinkley and Cook both turned up at the Hampton Classic horse event Sunday and narrowly missed being photographed in the same frame:

Christie Brinkley made her way in the direction of ex-husband Peter Cook and his girlfriend Suzanne Shaw. Photographers noticed the two were about to cross paths and aimed to get them in the same frame, but Shaw averted the awkward shot by grabbing Cook, spinning him around and racing in the opposite direction.

Brinkley and Cook have gone through a bitter divorce, fighting over child custody among other issues since they broke up over Cook's affair with an 18-year-old store clerk.
