Brinkley breakup laid to crackup

Supermodel Christie Brinkley and her ex-husband, Colorado real-estate man Richard Taubman, were diagnosed and treated for "post-traumatic stress syndrome" after a 1994 mountain helicopter crash, which may have contributed to their breakup, their attorney says.

Ironically, their attorney revealed the information as part of an attempt to keep medical information and other personal matters secret in a Texas court case.

Ms. Brinkley, Mr. Taubman and others in March sued American Eurocopter over the ski-trip crash.

State District Judge Bob McGrath of Fort Worth agreed to temporarily seal records for two weeks while attorneys consider whether to appeal his decision.
