Jaime King Settles Divorce from Kyle Newman After 3.5 Years

Jaime King and her estranged husband Kyle Newman have settled their long-disputed divorce.

Newman’s lawyer Garry M. Gekht told PEOPLE on Wednesday: “Kyle and Jaime finally resolved all issues in their divorce yesterday, allowing them to concentrate on being the best parents and co-parents to their two boys. I know that the right thing happened for the children when I see both parents walk out of the courthouse together as friends, sharing a embrace before they part ways.”

According to documents filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court of California on Tuesday, then obtained by Page Six, the exes’ respective attorneys have reached an agreement.

The details of the agreement have not been publicly disclosed.

PEOPLE has reached out to King’s rep.

Gekht called it “an emotional day at the courthouse yesterday,” to Page Six, adding that “Jaime and Kyle sat down in a room and hammered out the details of their settlement, putting their two children first.”

“It was truly touching to see them get along again after years of acrimony — Jaime even joined Kyle to get coffee across the street from the courthouse as I was writing up the settlement agreement.”

“I am hopeful that this will be a clean beginning for them,” he added. “They both understand they will be in each other’s lives forever, and that their children deserve nothing but the best from both of them.”

King and Newman tied the knot in 2007 at Greystone Park and Manor in Los Angeles. The pair share sons James Knight, 9, and Leo Thames, 8.

The Hart of Dixie alum, 44, filed for divorce from Newman, 47, in May 2020 after 15 years of marriage. At the time, King also filed a domestic violence prevention petition and an emergency motion related to child custody and visitation.

As their divorce progressed, things became messier as King and Newman battled over finances and custody of their children.

A source close to the actress told PEOPLE in May 2020 that she wanted to protect their children from any public drama and was “hopeful for a private and peaceful resolution” down the road.
