‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ stars, who separated in August and have been engaging in a bitter custody battle over their three boys ever since, finally reached an agreement on Oct. 5.

After weeks of back-and-forth public arguments and allegations of child abuse, Real Housewife Adrienne Maloof and her estranged husband Paul Nassif came to an agreement over the custody of their children on Oct. 5 without having to step foot inside a courtroom.

According to, Paul, who filed for legal separation from Adrienne on July 30, was vying for 50/50 custody. But it was Adrienne who came out on top.

“Adrienne and Paul and their respective lawyers met all day on Friday with a mediator, and they were able to come to a custody agreement,” a source told

“The boys will be with Adrienne a majority of the time, with Paul being granted visitation, and there are layers of protection in the agreement to ensure the boys are in a safe environment,” the source added.

This agreement comes weeks after Adrienne was granted temporary custody of their kids on Sept. 19 after she accused Paul of choking and hitting her sons.

According to RadarOnline, child protective services investigated the allegations and determined no physical or verbal abuse occurred against the children.

“Both Adrienne and Paul worked diligently to reach the custody agreement that was fair and was truly in the best interests of the children,” the source said.
