Former Leaf tough guy Tie Domi and his "humiliated" wife called a temporary timeout yesterday in what promises to be a long, bitter divorce brawl.

The ex-enforcer and his estranged wife, Leanne, agreed to an interim settlement in which Tie will pay to maintain the current lifestyle of his wife and three kids, including $20,000 monthly mortgage payments.

Financial documents in Leanne's divorce papers estimate the total monthly cost for their gated mansion at $39,841. There is a $3.75 million mortgage on the Bayview Ave.-York Mills Rd. area home.

The couple bought the lot for $1.5 million and spent $4 million building their dream home, court documents state.

Tie is agreeing to pay Leanne "all costs of their matrimonial home plus all costs for the children's schooling, lessons and recreational activities and maintain the ordinary, day to day financial status quo" for his wife and three children, the agreement states.

And Tie "shall be restrained from molesting, annoying or harassing Leanne Domi," it adds.

Tie has to keep away from the mansion except to get his belongings or see his kids, the agreement states.

Lawyers for Tie and Leanne negotiated an interim consent agreement after she filed a divorce application that alleged an affair with Belinda Stronach.

Leanne's lawyer Julie Hannaford told Madam Justice Harvison Young yesterday that the agreement was reached 40 minutes before court opened at 10 a.m.

In the application filed last week, Tie was portrayed as a cheater who attended glamorous film festival events with Stronach and Brad Pitt while he ignored his family.

Allegations in the divorce document haven't been tested in court. Tie has yet to file a response.

Leanne forgave Tie for his 1999 affair with TV and movie star Tia Carrere, the document states.

The Domis reconciled after an 18-month separation and Leanne believed Tie's promise that he'd never lie to his family again, according to the application.

In the summer she learned from a friend that Domi was acting like a "shopping sherpa," walking hand-in-hand with Stronach while carrying her parcels and strolling down Madison Ave. in New York, the divorce document says.

"It was humiliating to me and I cried when I heard about it ... I had been made into a fool -- Belinda and Tie were clearly laughing at how I was stupid for being the drudge who looked after the house and the family while they frolicked in New York," Leanne states.

"Both parties, Mr. Domi and Mrs. Domi are pleased that we could come to a consent agreement for their benefit and for the benefit of their children," Hannaford said.

"This matter has been very acrimonious and there is a great deal of sadness by Mr. and Mrs. Domi. My client and Domi very much wanted to resolve this by way of consent."

Leanne remains the primary caregiver for their three children, Carlin, 12, Max , 11, and Avery 7, but Tie will have "regular access."

The children's expenses, tuitions and recreational activities total $7,631 a month, with Max enrolled at Upper Canada College and his two sisters at another private school. Entertainment and recreation expenses were estimated at $2,681.

Tie or his company Tie Domi Enterprises must pay $10,000 to an independent valuation company to "calculate his income for support purposes and to calculate the fair market value of his assets" to determine his payments under the Family Law Act to his wife.
