A judge had previously warned the pre-nup would be enforced and if the handbag designer had challenged the terms, she would have had to pay the 68-year-old actor more than $1 million and cover his attorney’s fees, but over the weekend, the 48-year-old beauty agreed to the terms of a three-page settlement letter.

It is believed her request for $850,000 in legal fees was removed from the arrangement.

Last month, a judge agreed with Kevin’s proposed amount of child support for Cayden, 16, Hayes, 14, and 13-year-old Grace, setting his monthly payments at $63, 209 — falling far short of Christine’s request for $175, 057.

She later reduced her request to $161, 592 a month and argued luxury living is in the teenagers’ “DNA at this point” as they are accustomed to lavish holidays and private jet travel.

Following his victory over the child support row, the ‘Bodyguard’ actor admitted the lengthy court battle was “horrible.”

He told Access Hollywood following his win: “This is a horrible place to be, but this is where we’re at.

“It feels so bad. We’re talking about somebody I love on the other side. I just can’t.”

When the outlet asked whether Kevin “still has love” for his estranged wife, he replied: “Of course.”

The Oscar-winning ‘actor stressed that he “wasn’t … laughing” about their divorce proceedings despite cracking a joke on the stand.
