After a marathon negotiating session to end their 10-year marriage, the ugly divorce trial between Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook finally ended at 6 a.m. this morning.
The main issue being resolved was custody of the couple’s two children, Jack, 13, and Sailor, 10. Christie was awarded sole custody and final decision-making power over the children. Cook is permitted visitation and will be consulted regarding decisions about the children. Christie also retained ownership of all real estate holdings and her boat “Sweet Freedom.” She agreed to pay Cook a flat amount of $2.1 million, which mainly covered his legal costs. The rest of the terms remain confidential.
The five-day trial included a string of witnesses and allegations against Peter’s pornography addiction, his infidelities and his overall unstable nature.
