Billy Joel and model Christie Brinkley prove that you can stay friends following a divorce.
Billy Joel recently serenaded Christie Brinkley during a version of ‘Uptown Girl’ at a show in Madison Square Garden. The singer asked for his camera crew to capture her smiling and dancing in the front row. Brinkley shared her own reaction on Instagram, boasting about her ex husband, "He’s still got it!"
The couple were married and had a daughter together, but divorced in 1994. Joel was on his River of Dreams tour during the divorce and ‘Uptown Girl’ was missing from his set list at the time.
