Usher isn’t the only singer dealing with a raging child custody legal battle!!!

But unlike the Ursh, Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels have FINALLY resolved their ongoing legal drama!

About. Effing. Time!!!

After what seemed like an eternity mixed in with a side of cigarette burning, both sides have reached an agreement, as part of a court mandated mediation.

The ladies have agreed to share joint custody of their five-year-old twins Johnnie Rose and Miller Steven!!!

Tammy is also laughing all the way to bank, as she’s set to receive an undisclosed increa$e in spousal and child support payments, up from $23,000 per month she’s already been getting.

Must be niiiiiice!

We're glad these two put their differences aside for the betterment of their kids!!

And if they can do it, so can Usher and his baby-momma Tameka Foster!!!

We hope.
