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.

Former Blur bassist Alex James talked to OK! Magazine about family life and living on a farm in the Cotswolds, UK. Alex, 39, lives with his wife Claire and their three sons: Geronimo, four, and two-year-old twins Artemis (curlier hair) and Galileo. The couple are currently expecting their fourth child.
On knowing the sex:
Alex: “We’re having a girl! We pretended not to be really excited about the news that we were having a girl, but we secretly were!”
On the possibility of another pair of twins:
Claire: “We braced ourselves for another set of twins. But after the first scan we worked out quite quickly that it was just one. The twins have really been a lot of effort and work because they were premature. They’re double the trouble but they entertain each other as well.”
On considering a more simple name:
Alex: “I don’t know, I think you’ve got to have a look at them before you know what they’re called. We quite like Sophie, although I don’t think we’ll get that past the board of censors – especially Geronimo. There’s a shortlist. I quite like Boudica.”
On drinking his wife’s breast milk:
Alex: “When the twins were born it was very traumatic as we didn’t know whether they were going to make it as they were so premature. So after we finally got them home, Claire had a night out with friends and got totally wasted. We had this particularly fearsome maternity nurse who told us Claire’s milk was condemned. I thought, we can’t throw that away, so I tried it – I had some on my cornflakes as well!”

Jessica Alba just gave birth to her dauther, Honor Marie, last month and opened up about pregnancy in the August U.K. edition of Cosmopolitan magazine,
“I never felt less sexy,” Jessica said of her own pregnancy. “I mean, I wouldn’t have changed it for the world … but I wanted to get rid of all the weight.”
Jessica also commented on her relationship with hubby Cash Warren,
“I never thought I’d find a man before 30, let alone marry him and have his baby. I always used to meet the wrong guys – the ones who wanted to hang out for a week and see how far they could get. If you didn’t have sex in the first few days, you were either frigid or a lesbian. So I held out – and, boy, am I glad I did!”
As for her quickie wedding to Cash, she insists it was “very romantic” and she never had the desire for a star-studded, over-the-top ceremony,
“We’re not a typical Hollywood couple,” she said. “I love that he’s not an actor. I’m way too high maintenance to be in a relationship with an actor – they’re all such divas!” She went on to say they hadn’t planned on settling down so quickly, “Nothing was planned – the pregnancy or the wedding. But he took it in his stride and convinced me we’d conquer all!”
