Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook have finally called a truce in the last of their long running courthouse battles. This morning the feuding exes appeared in State Supreme Court in Riverhead where they presented Justice Mark Cohen with a mutually beneficial settlement agreement. Last minute negotiations between Brinkley, Cook and their legal teams ran well into the early hours of Tuesday morning with both sides hammering out conditions of the settlement agreement before they were due in court. The settlement addressed custody and visitation issues concerning the couple's two children, Jack, 14, and Sailor Lee, 11. The specifics of the agreement, which were accepted by the judge, were not made public.

Despite a few final digs outside of the courthouse, Brinkley reminding the press that a court psychiatrist had labeled Peter a "narcissist" and Cook slamming Christie for "parental interference," both sides seemed to be pleased with the agreement.

It had been reported that both Brinkley and Cook were looking to have each other thrown in jail for violating the terms of their original custody and confidentiality agreements, but Brinkley assured one reporter as she left the courthouse in a blue trench coat and Ray Bans, "I never said that."  Brinkley in fact did not exercise her right to hold Cook in contemp of their original agreement.

As for Cook, he told BlogHamptons he's looking forward to spending time with his kids and "leaving this media circus behind."
