She had slammed Cook in a statement issued by her legal team last week over his decision to go public about their marriage split in a recent US TV special. With a view to keeping their children-daughter, Sailor, 10, and son, Jack, 13-from viewing it, the two came to an agreement in which Cook was ordered to take them to upstate New York for the weekend.
When Cook changed the travelling plans of going by road, his daughter called up Brinkley, who in turn called the New York police. The plane was reportedly stopped on the runway at East Hampton Airport by officers, and Cook apparently gathered the kids into his car only to turn around and board another plane.
"She was crying, saying she was scared to get on the plane. Because of what she went through, Christie has always insisted that the family has to travel on a double engine plane with two pilots. He faked everyone out, got back on the plane and flew," Contactmusic quoted a source as having told the New York Daily News.
