LONG ISLAND, N.Y., July 5 (UPI) — Christie Brinkley took to social media to respond to reports that she turned a hose on a woman who urinated on her beachfront property.
Brinkley says she scolded the woman whom she said urinated on her property and threw things at her during an Independence Day weekend fireworks gathering at her home in the Hamptons.
“I know it’s Independence Day but that does not mean ‘free to pee’ in front of my guests and me at my fireworks gathering” she wrote. “Maybe the trespasser should celebrate ‘Depends Day’ as she apparently thinks she lives in ‘The Land of the Pee’, and I was forced to hose down her mess after she urinated in my yard all the while throwing things at me.”
The woman, 36-year-old Erica Remkus, told the New York Post’s Page Six that she was on public property and had not begun to urinate yet when Brinkley turned the hose on her.
“I would not have peed if she didn’t spray me,” said Remkus, adding that she was not aware the woman confronting her was Brinkley at first.
Police arrived on the scene, but did not issue Remkus a citation as they did not witness her urinating and determined that she was on public property.
Brinkley ended the post by mentioning her personal brand of wine, Bellissima Prosecco, and called for an increased amount of privacy for herself and others as they celebrate holidays and other events.
“My wish for everyone on this Fourth of July is may you live in the Land of the Free from belligerent drunken stalkers with weak bladders and foul mouths,” she wrote.
Brinkley’s message was accompanied by a screenshot showing headlines about the incident and she also tagged a number of news outlets at the end of the post.
