Christie Brinkley is setting the record straight on her breakup.
After recently splitting with 64-year-old John Mellencamp, the 62-year-old supermodel took to Instagram on Thursday to slam a tabloid report claiming that political and lifestyle differences caused the split.
“While much has been written over the years about me that I simply allow to roll off my back… I do stand up for my friends when things seem unfair and this is the case here,” Brinkley said in the lengthy post, which specifically points to a Page Six story claiming she couldn’t take Mellencamp’s “redneck ways.”
“Distance and work were all that stood in the way of our relationship,” Brinkley added, noting that the “convoluted” story implied that “John is against progressive Democratic politics and somehow sounds like a Trump fan.”
Brinkley went on to defend her ex against the mischaracterization of his beliefs, noting, “he just gave Hilary Clinton his song for her campaign ‘Our Country,'” and going on to reveal, “We are both voting for Hillary.”
