Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook have reached an agreement in their bitter child support battle that has been brewing ever since they split in 2008 (when she said Cook had an affair with a teen store clerk). They have since fought over money, communication and the kids. A trial was set for Tuesday.
On her Facebook page, Brinkley wrote today: "In a late night settlement, I finally won the right to establish boundaries with provisions such as an intermediary to deal with email bullying, verbal and emotional abuse. I am hopeful the steps taken will now protect my Constitutional right to quiet enjoyment and peace and serve as a template for the courts to help others avoid the lengthy trials and tribulations that cost taxpayers money, and at a cost to families that CAN be calculated in dollars. But its the emotional toll which can only be measured in tears that must be considered by the courts and media alike."
Cook issued a statement through his lawyer, James Winkler, saying: "I hope this settlement will temper Ms. Brinkley's public harassment of him going forward and that she will seek appropriate help to deal with her anger."
The settlement mandates a parental coordinator assist the two in caring for their children Sailor and Jack, reports Gossip Cop. It also seeks to put an end to the feuding with a "no verbal contact" clause.
The New York Post reported Friday that Cook wed girlfriend Suzanne Shaw on Valentine's Day, but the two have kept it a secret. And on Sunday, Brinkley took a swipe at Shaw in court, saying, "When you find out he's been cheating on you, I'll be here for you."
