No word yet on whether Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s names will be submitted to the Nobel Peace Prize committee, but if they can make peace, anybody can. After rumors this week that the battling couple were close to settling their bitter custody fight, reports that they’ve finally settled on an equal-custody arrangement for their two kids, Brandon, 6, and Dylan, 4. Lee’s spokesperson told Launch that the couple has officially notified a Los Angeles court of their arrangement. ”Tommy is obviously thrilled with the outcome,” the spokesperson said.

So ends what has been a venomous struggle, played out mostly in the press, between the ex-Motley Crue drummer and the former ‘”Baywatch” babe, who married after a four-day courtship in 1995 and split a number of times before divorcing in 1998. During the custody fight, the Associated Press quoted Anderson as calling Lee ”a very angry, unstable man who presents a danger to others, particularly when he is using alcohol,” while Lee responded in court papers that he has been sober since 1999 and added, ”I have never put my children at risk.” This year, Anderson accused Lee of infecting her with incurable hepatitis C, a disease Lee denied he has. His spokeswoman responded, saying of Anderson, ”She is only doing more harm to her children and herself by trying to use the media as a tool to hurt Tommy and their two boys.”

Now that they’ve agreed on joint custody, Anderson and Lee are about to introduce some new step-parents into their son’s lives. Anderson is engaged to Kid Rock, while Lee is engaged to Mayte Garcia, ex-wife of Prince.
