A representative for Christie Brinkley has dismissed rumors the former supermodel checked into a cosmetic surgery clinic at the same time as her daughter Alexa Ray Joel to undergo a facelift.
Brinkley's daughter with musician Billy Joel was admitted to the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City earlier this month for an elective rhinoplasty procedure, and her mother was rumored to have checked in the previous day for facial surgery.
However, a spokeswoman for the 56 year old is adamant she wasn't at the hospital for an operation.
The rep tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Alexa had breathing difficulties due to a deviated septum and decided to correct the appearance of her nose at the same time. As far as Christie is concerned, she was at Lenox Hill to support her daughter, and throughout her career people have speculated that she's done this or that, which she always chooses to take as a compliment."
