Supermodel Stephanie Seymour and her husband have been embroiled in an ugly divorce and custody case, but now it appears that the couple is trying to reconcile.

Seymour and her newsprint mogul husband, Peter Brant, filed for divorce in 2009 after 14 years of marriage. On Monday, the couple withdrew their cases.

"The parties have withdrawn their divorce action and are reconciling. They ask that their privacy be respected," according to a statement from a public relations representative.

When the couple appeared for their first trial, Superior Court Judge Lynda Munro said that she told the couple that she thought they’d get back together, the New York Post reports.

"I'm a true believer in marriage. It's hard work growing old together, but it's actually sort of fun," she said on Monday, according to the Post.

In the year and a half since the divorce case began, stories to surface sounded like something straight out of “War of the Roses” or “What Happens in Vegas.”

The couple stayed in the same Greenwich mansion, but in July 2009, Brant changed the locks and Seymour had to bunk with the maid, the New York Post reported.

He also argued that she was an unfit mom to their three children: Peter Jr., Harry and Lily, and claimed that Seymour submitted “invalid” urine samples to prove that she was not on drugs or booze

There were also allegations about nannies being used as spies.

At one point, the case escalated to reports of physical violence. Not between Seymour and Brant, but a shoving match between Seymour and security guard, Joseph Babnik of Carmel, N.Y. 

Seymour and Babnick reached a deal in September 2009, according to Money Times.

In October 2009, Brant was supposed to begin paying Seymour $270,000 per month in alimony and child support.

But now, the supermodel and her art-collecting, polo-playing hubby  seem to be back on the track to marital bliss, or at least to ending a bitter court battle.
