It sounds like one of Hollywood’s most contentious custody battles is taking a turn for the better.
A source confirms to PEOPLE that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer, 43, and her ex-husband Kelsey, 57, have finally reached an amicable settlement in the case involving their two young children Mason and Jude.
The two kids will stay in California with their mother, while Kelsey will be closely involved, according to the source, who also says a financial settlement is close to being reached.
The actor is currently looking for a home in the Los Angeles area so he can have a presence and be involved in his kids’ lives, the source says.
Kelsey and Camille’s reps had no comment.
TMZ was first to report the custody agreement.
