Earlier this week, an L.A. County Superior Court judge ruled Melissa did not have to pay her ex an additional $25K because the Grammy-winning singer is paying for all of Tammy's and their children's bills. Both Melissa and Tammy are fighting for custody of their twins.

The next hearing is set for September.
