It looks like Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook can finally put their marriage behind them.


Nearly four years after their nasty divorce became official, the two have reached an out-of-court settlement in their bitter battle over child support for their two kids, 17-year-old Jack and 13-year-old Sailor.

"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," Brinkley wrote Monday on her Facebook page. "I am hopeful the steps 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."

While Cook's lawyer reportedly claimed that Brinkley's ex-husband managed to secure a "parenting coordinator" as part of the settlement, Brinkley's attorney insists in a statement that it's "completely untrue."

Posted on Brinkley's Facebook page, the statement reads, "There was never an appointment of a 'parent coordinator' as Mr. Cook claims, and there was absolutely no compensation paid to Mr. Cook. In addition, Mr. Cook was forced to pay his child support arrears rather than face the consequences of the Court."

The out-of-court settlement came just one day before a trial was scheduled to begin.
