N.Y. doctor: Brinkley should get custody

Associated Press

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. — A court-appointed psychologist says Christie Brinkley should get custody of her two youngest children.

Dr. Stephen Herman made the recommendation Tuesday at the Long Island divorce trial of Brinkley and architect Peter Cook.

Herman met 11 times with the parents, their 13-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter. He says Cook is a narcissist who constantly needs to have his insatiable ego fed.

The psychologist says shared custody "is not at all a viable option."


Trial testimony has detailed Cook’s affair with a teenager and his online sex activities.
