Divorced: 4 times
Christie Brinkley’s career as a model was marked by record-breaking success. She was the first person ever to appear three times in a row on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and according to her official website, her contract with cosmetics giant CoverGirl was the longest in history. She then turned her success as a model into wise real estate investments, which Newsday estimated to be worth $80 million.
Brinkley was first married to French artist Jean-François Allaux, whom she divorced after eight years. Her second and most famous husband was musician Billy Joel, whom she married in 1985 and with whom she had a daughter, Alexa. That marriage ended in 1994, the same year in which she married real estate developer Richard Taubman. The couple had a baby, Jack, in June 1995, but the marriage ended the same year. Her last marriage was to architect Peter Cook, whom she wed in 1996 and whose divorce two years later was a regular feature in the tabloids. Brinkley has not remarried since.
