Cheryl Burke wins custody of the dog in Fallout of Matthew Lawrence Divorce
Cheryl Burke is dancing away with a W in the aftermath of her divorce with Matthew Lawrence – instead of going to court over custody of their dog… he’s raised the white flag.
New court documents obtained by TMZ show the ‘DWTS’ star and her now-ex-husband have reached an agreement over a dispute over who will be their French bulldog Ysabella’s primary caregiver… something they used to be throughout arguing about proceedings.

For now… it looks like Cheryl will play the pooch’s mommy as she has been granted all ownership rights – with ML agreeing to relinquish all documents/data relating to Ysabella, including the title of ‘pet parent’. ” for her once shared Home Again service.
There was a scheduled trial that should take place soon if they didn’t squash that, and it looks like they did just in time – with all discoveries now being withdrawn.
While Matthew and Cheryl finalized their divorce in September, that was one of the last points of contention … which Cheryl had even addressed publicly, calling Matt’s insistence on fighting her over it “cruel.” As she said in interviews, she always saw *her* dog in them.
Cheryl says she got Ysabella from an ex and felt entitled to it. In the end he seems to have seen it that way too. Of course, he’s headed for new horizons… now in a relationship with Chilli.
While Cheryl and Matt are on the same page about Ysabella, a judge has yet to give his approval.
