Christie Brinkley and her daughter, Sailor, have found themselves involved in a feud with Christie’s brother, Gregory Donald, and it’s made the rounds across social media this weekend as Brinkley’s ex Billy Joel busied himself with a surprise wedding.
Christie and Gregory have been at odds over the deaths of their parents, with Gregory accusing Christie of only caring about her inheritance — part of which, he says, belongs to him — and keeping him shut out of a memorial service she held for them.
“It is heart wrenching to watch Christie Brinkley descend into this CHARACTER ASSASSINATION. I had even left my work to spend extra time with mom and dad and also to take care of Christie’s children while she danced and sang on the stage of Chicago the Musical,” Gregory wrote on Facebook.
Sailor Brinkley took to Twitter to vent about her uncle, saying they have never had a good relationship and that he tried to “ruin” her birthday by throwing a memorial service for his parents on the same day.
“Just know not to trust a man who tries to ruin and create conflict on his 17 year old niece’s birthday… I don’t trust him nor do i trust what he does or what he believes in. I in no way want to be connected to him or his lifestyle,” Sailor wrote on Twitter.

Christie Brinkley took to Instagram over the weekend to congratulate ex Billy Joel on his marriage to Alexis Roderick. The couple exchanged vows in a surprise ceremony over the holiday weekend and are expecting their first child together this year.
“Congratulations to the glowing bride and groom. And to my daughter Alexa, who has a wonderful friend in Alexis! Wishing the growing family every happiness!” Brinkley wrote.
Christie Brinkley has passed down her love of modeling and the camera to her daughters, and Sailor received praise earlier this year for a photo she took of her mom and sister Alexa at poolside that got a lot of attention on Instagram.
“Alexa Ray and I modeled for a really Great photographer today…Sailor Lee! She knew exactly what she wanted she dressed us ( from my closet, ) mixing and “unmatching” clothes and jewels to achieve her cinematic vision! She is a true talent on the rise and she didn’t let a little rain or chill stop her from getting her shot either,” Christie Brinkley wrote.
