Former supermodel Stephanie Seymour and her husband Peter Brant have put months of bitter legal wrangling behind them and called off their divorce. The retired catwalk beauty has been locked in an ugly spat with the publishing mogul ever since they split last year as they attempted to thrash out the details of their separation and custody arrangements for their three children.
The divorce proceedings led to a nasty war of words between the pair - they were both ordered to undergo random drug testing at the other's request, while Seymour also accused her estranged partner of spying on her and attaching a satellite tracking device to her car to monitor her movements.
They were due back in court in Connecticut on Monday, September 20 to continue the divorce hearings, but surprised officials by withdrawing their petition and insisting they are back together and ready to give their marriage another go.
A joint statement from the couple reads, "The parties have withdrawn their divorce action and are reconciling... They ask that their privacy be respected." Judge Linda Monroe, who was overseeing the case at Connecticut Superior Court, joked to the couple, "I hope we never see you again. I wish you made this decision six months ago."
