Christie Brinkley smiles Thursday as she announces a settlement in her divorce trial in New York state.

Christie Brinkley's fiercely combative divorce trial ended Thursday in Central Islip, N.Y., following a week of salacious testimony about her fourth husband's affair with a teenager and his Internet porn proclivities.

The settlement gives her custody of their two children and some property. The husband, Peter Cook, gets $2.1 million.

"I'm really glad that today we found some peace," said Brinkley, beaming as her silver peace-sign earrings glistened off a galaxy of camera flashes. She clutched her son's elaborate dinosaur diorama, used as trial evidence that she's a good mother who helped him with his science project.

She told reporters that while she was happy with the settlement, there was not much to celebrate.

"It's to me a very bittersweet moment because it really is the death of a marriage," said Brinkley, 54, who has three other ex-husbands.
