It’s a wrap. In the base­ment of the Da­ley Cen­ter, with­out the Grammy- win­ing celebrity present, lawyers for Chance the Rap­per and the mother of his tod­dler daugh­ter Mon­day signed off on a le­gal agree­ment that ends a pro­longed tus­sle over child sup­port.

Lawyers for both sides were ef­fu­sive in their praise for how Chance and the mother, Kirsten Cor­ley, came to an agree­ment.

En­rico Mirabelli, Cor­ley’s at­tor­ney, said the cou­ple “put their child first.”

“Re­ally, that’s the way it should be done,” Mirabelli said. “And when you set­tle be­tween your­selves, you leave noth­ing to chance.”

Tanya Stan­ish, one of Chance’s at­tor­neys, said: “The par­ties have reached a full agree­ment. The case is con­cluded. I’m go­ing to give ma­jor credit to Chance and Kirsten for work­ing to­gether to reach a deal that’s fair for their daugh­ter, fair for them both.”

Cor­ley and her daugh­ter have been liv­ing with Chance, but both par­ents agree that it’s in the child’s best in­ter­ests if they live separately, ac­cord­ing to re­cent doc­u­ments filed in the case.

With­out dis­clos­ing de­tails, Mirabelli said his client — born and raised in Chicago — plans to con­tinue to live in the city.

Stan­ish said the agree­ment reached Mon­day means, there will be “sub­stan­tial par­ent­ing time for both” par­ents.

Cor­ley had been seek­ing tem­po­rary child sup­port that would pay for, among other things, a fur­nished home for her and the daugh­ter as well as a car to trans­port the child.

At­tor­neys for both sides had said last week that the par­ties agreed to keep some doc­u­ments in the case con­fi­den­tial and were close to an am­i­ca­ble set­tle­ment.
