Future can breathe a little easier this week.

According to court documents, the “I Bet” singer has dropped her defamation lawsuit against her ex-fiancé. In fact, the motion was”dismissed with prejudice” meaning she can’t refile in the future, the media reports.

The singer is also said to have reached a custody agreement with the “Wicked” rapper. As fans know far too well, the road to resolution has been riddled with drama. From Twitter feuds to ridiculous radio rants, for quite some time, we weren’t sure whether these two would ever make peace — if not, for their son, Future Zahir, 3.

As previously reported, the expectant mother claimed that one of the rapper’s many Twitter tirades cost her a $500K contract with “an international cosmetics company.”

“I been silent for a year & a half..I ran outta patience,” the Atlanta native, tweeted at the time. “I jus want babyfuture that’s all. I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture…the f—ery for 15k a month. This b—- got control problems.”

Ci Ci didn’t take too kindly to the comments. So, she responded in the best way possible, with a lawsuit. In addition to forking over $15M in damages, the singer demanded Future cough up $250K for legal fees, delete the nasty tweets, stop speaking on private family matters regarding baby Future and issue a retraction/apology. In the suit, Ci Ci maintained she’d gone out of her way to ensure Future had access to their son, claiming they’ve had at least 19 visitations (some spanning several days) since December 2014.

Now, two long years later, it appears that both Ciara and Future have moved on quite nicely. During the New Year’s Eve holiday, the newlywed looked back at some of her fondest memories of 2016, including her magical wedding day.

Meanwhile, Future recently admitted that his relationship with Ciara has taken a turn for the positive, telling Rolling Stone, “Her being successful, her being happy, helps me.

“I’m attached to you. If you’re happy, I’m happy. You’re connected for life.

“I don’t want you to go through this s— and for it to come back on my son, my kid. I want you to be in the best situation,” he concluded.
