Sharon Stone and ex-husband Phil Bronstein have settled their bitter custody dispute with an extraordinary child swap deal.
Their adopted son, Roan, will live for a year with his dad in San Francisco — and then move back in for the following year with the Basic Instinct star in Los Angeles.
Roan, five, will spend alternate years with his feuding parents for four years until the agreement is reviewed.
Although Sharon, 47, will be able to visit regularly, the highly unusual custody solution will effectively separate her two preschool-aged sons. She also has an adopted eight-month- old baby boy, Laird.
When the actress divorced Bronstein, editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, in January 2004, they agreed to shared custody of their older son, whom they jointly adopted in June 2000.
But they called in a mediator late last year to hammer out a new settlement because they were at each other’s throats, according to an insider.
