Cheryl Burke dances with W as a result of the divorce Matthew Lawrence Instead of going to court for custody of their dog, she refused the white flag.
New court documents obtained by TMZ reveal that the “DWTS” star and her now-ex-husband have settled on a battle over who will be the primary guardian of their French bulldog, Ysabella … fighting throughout the trial.

As of right now, it looks like Cheryl is going to play dog mom as she’s been given all the ownership rights; ML has agreed to relinquish all documents/data relating to Ysabella, including the title of “pet parent”. “For their once-in-a-lifetime Home Again service.”
There was a trial that was supposed to happen soon if they didn’t take it down and it looks like they did it right at the beginning of time when all the disclosures are now retracted.
While Matthew and Cheryl finalized their divorce in September, it was one of the last points of contention … which Cheryl even addressed publicly, calling Matt’s insistence on fighting her over it “brutal.” As she said in interviews, she always saw him as *her* dog.
Cheryl says Ysabella got it from her ex and feels entitled. After all, he seemed to see it that way too. Of course he’s in New Horizons … now in relationship with Chile.
While Cheryl and Matt are on the same page about Ysabella, the judge has yet to sign off.
