LATEST: Christie Brinkley has vowed never to remarry after reaching a settlement in her high-drama divorce trial with Peter Cook.
Following a tense week in court, the former couple announced it had reached an agreement in the early hours of Thursday (10Jul08) morning.
Over the course of the trial, testimony included revelations of Cook's affair with teenager Diana Bianchi and his alleged $3,000 (GBP1,500) monthly porn habit.
A court-appointed psychiatrist on Tuesday (08Jul08) advised Brinkley to undergo counselling - after the doctor cited the former supermodel's four failed marriages as a source of emotional struggle.
And Brinkley insists that her most recent relationship meltdown has forced her to reconsider the prospect of ever walking down the aisle again.
She tells the New York Post, "I'm not going to marry again. I know too much about the marriage laws and divorce laws. Getting married again would not be a very intelligent thing to do.
"I was fighting for my family. I think when you're fighting for your family's well-being, almost anything you have to go through is worth it."
Brinkley has been awarded sole custody and final parental decision-making power of the couple's children - Jack, 13, and Sailor, 10.
She was also granted ownership of the couple's 18 properties in the Hamptons, and has agreed to pay $2.1 million (GBP1.05million) to Cook.
Brinkley's divorce is scheduled to be finalised in September (08).
Her separation from Cook follows a 1995 split from former husband Richard Taubman, and the dissolutions of her second marriage to rocker Billy Joel in 1994 and her first to Jean-Francois Allaux in 1981.
