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.

Melissa Etheridge SETTLES Her Domestic Partnership Battle With Her Ex

Melissa Etheridge Tammy Lynn Michaels settle

Divorce is tough and so is the end of a domestic partnership.

Melissa Etheridge has been battling her ex-partner Tammy Lynn Michaels for the last two years over custody and financial support, but the two have FINALLY settled!

Sources are reporting that the feuding former lovers reached a settlement on Monday night, in which they'll share joint custody of their kids and Melissa will give Tammy more than the $23,000 she's getting now.

We don't know how MUCH more Melissa will be giving her ex, but we're happy that these two have decided to give peace a chance and come to an amicable decision.

Now that their separation is in order, we wish both these lovely ladies the best as they continue to search for love!

Melissa Etheridge's Ex Explains Her Side Of The Cigarette Burning Incident

Melissa Etheridge custody battle

Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels have been battling in court since their separation in 2010, and things are only heating up.

Most recently, Tammy has requested more money for child support, while Melissa has accused her of burning one of their children with a cigarette!

However, Tammy is speaking out about her side of the story and claims that her ex essentially made a big deal over nothing. In a recent interview, she explained:

"Miller was about three-years-old. He was inside, playing with my [then] girlfriend. And I was outside, thinking about cleaning the car, and so, I had opened the door of the car. He came up from around and behind me. I didn't even see him come up because the door was open … I felt so terrible. But it was the tiniest thing and Miller didn't care. He was like, "Whatever. Can I help clean the car?"

Accidents certainly do happen, but we can understand how ANY parent would be concerned if they found a cigarette burn on their child's arm. Regardless of the burn, we think Tammy should quit smoking around those kids because of dangerous second-hand smoke.

As far as her financial demands go, Tammy feels that she deserves more than $23K in child support a month because she "gave up the job that was $25,000 a week, not $23,000 a month." Essentially, her thought process is that if she would have continued her acting career, she could be making at least $100,000 a month.

She continued to assert that the amount of money she is receiving may ultimately be a gay rights issue, considering straight wives would be entitled to 50% of their husbands' income. While commenting on the issue, Tammy said this:

"It's the law. When we were together, there were a lot of things said and shared between us. And a lot of things were promised. I'm standing here saying: 'You wanted to fight for gay rights; you wanted everything to be fair. You wanted to stand up for all of us? Because now I'm an 'us,' the gays that wanted to have gay rights and equality and not look like dip s–ts.'"

She actually raises a VERY good point. If this world truly was an equal one, Tammy would be receiving half of Melissa's $178,000 monthly income, wouldn't she?

Melissa Etheridge's Ex Writes A Poem About Burning Their Child With A Cigarette

Melissa Etheridge and tammy

YES! POETRY!!

It's a form of expression almost excessively used by angry teens and people in rehab; but sometimes poetry is used to make us laugh at you define yourself in court!

Yesterday, we reported that Melissa Etheridge filed documents with custody court that claim her ex, Tammy Lynn Michaels, burnt their child with a cigarette.

Lucky for us, Tammy has responded to Melissa's accusation… with a poem!!

In the brilliant piece of writing, Tammy explains that she was standing "20 feet away" from the kids, while taking part in her "bad habit" when her 3-year-old son playfully attacked her. Here's an excerpt from the poem:

"how does one know
that her amazing son
with strong and luscious arms and legs
would try to play
Invisible Monster Tackling Mommy
at
that
precise
moment?????"

Well, that explains everything! LOL!

Now we understand how she may have mistakenly burnt her child. However, now we have a new question: WHY A POEM???

Treat yourself to the entire ridiculous masterfully written poem… AFTER THE JUMP!!

Melissa Etheridge: My Ex 'Burned Our Kid With A Cigarette'

Melissa Etheridge custody battle

Oh, heeeell naw!

The epic custody battle between Melissa Etheridge and her ex Tammy Lynn Michaels has been going on for YEARS — and it's not showing any signs of slowing down!

Melissa has just filed legal docs claiming the mother of her twins had BURNED the kids with cigarettes!

The animal-loving singer wants a judge to order Tammy to stop smoking around the children.

Back in 2010 Etheridge claimed that Michaels "used our children as pawns," to get what she wanted out of their split, and it appears not a lot has changed between them!

In the documents she filed, Melissa attached an email she claims Tammy sent that says:

"They aren't leaving my care while you are on the road — a completely inappropriate place for 3-year-olds — not to mention you can't track them, have no child care, and they were bit by dogs in the house last time you had them."

Melissa says Tam Tam is just being "vindictive."

A hearing is set for May 22. Aside from the smoking ban, Melissa will be asking the judge for more time with the kids.
