Stephanie Seymour & Peter Brant Divorce OFF

Supermodel Stephanie Seymour and her husband Peter Brant have called off their divorce. According to a statement from their public relations rep, "The parties have withdrawn their divorce action and are reconciling. They ask that their privacy be respected."

The New York Post reports that Seymour and Brant walked into the Middletown Superior Court in Connecticut on Monday holding hands. Judge Lynda Munro remarked, "After the first hearing with you, I said I thought you were going to reconcile and I'd forgotten about it," and ended the hearing saying, "I'm a true believer in marriage. It's hard work growing old together, but it's actually sort of fun."

Seymour told the Post she hoped to get "peace" out of the hearing.

After announcing their divorce in March 2009, things got ugly between the couple, with Brant alleging Seymour had a drug and alcohol problem and Seymour calling Brant controlling. In August, the New York Times wrote that the suit "generated more than 12,000 pages of public divorce documents (with thousands more sealed), paid millions of dollars in lawyers fees and fractured an already delicate cadre of family and friends forced to take sides."

Seymour and Brant have been married for 15 years and have three children.
