During their 12-year marriage Cook had one daughter with Brinkley, named Sailor, and he also legally adopted her son with ex-husband Richard Taubman, Jack Paris.

The pair has been locked in a war of words over its divorce settlement since the two split in 2008 and this week (begs27Feb12) Cook filed legal papers against his former wife at New York's Suffolk County Supreme Court, alleging he shouldn't have to pay the beauty upwards of $32,000 (£20,000) in back child support payments.

According to the New York Post, the businessman claims he's owed $25,000 (£15,625) because he looked after their two kids for five months while Brinkley performed in the musical Chicago on Broadway and in London's West End.

Neither star has publicly addressed the new legal battle, with Cook telling the publication, "I can't comment on any of that."
