CT and Bono crossed paths in the bad old days, when Christy’s fellow catwalker Naomi Campbell was engaged to U2 bassist Adam Clayton. Though that union didn’t end in “I dos,” the relationship paid dividends for all concerned: the U2 guys got a sexy new image, courtesy of their model posse, and the mannequins looked positively cerebral by association.
Christy and Ed had originally planned to tie the knot in the South of France back in 2001. But after the tragic events of Sept. 11, Ed insisted on postponing the ceremony, citing security concerns. Christy disagreed, and the couple split.
