Christie -- On Brinkley of Settling

7/9/2008 7:10 PM PDT
Day five of the Christie Brinkley/Peter Cook divorce cage match took a weird turn today -- and not because the court heard more about Peter Cook's pervy predilections.

Sources tell us that during a long and unexpected break today, lawyers for both sides were conferring "intensely" behind closed doors -- we're told that they were trying to hash out a custody deal. But it didn't happen -- and everyone will be back tomorrow.

A pair of detectives whom the supermodel hired to investigate Porny Pete are due to testify -- one of them is a former bodyguard/mouthpiece for Dina Lohan. Talk about full circle.
