Melissa Etheridge’s former partner alleges the rocker has left her so broke, she can’t afford to buy food for their kids.
The “Come To My Window” hitmaker split from Tammy Lynn Michaels in April (10) after nine years together. Michaels filed legal papers in July (10) asking the rocker to pay her $12,000 a month to provide for their twins, a son and a daughter, who turn four this week (10/17).
Etheridge’s lawyers insisted she has been handing over $2,000-a-month and paying all the bills, but three months later, Michaels claims she is still struggling to get by. In a poetry-style post on her blog, she writes:
“‘Pays all the bills’ / Not entirely true/ ‘Pays all the bills she chooses to pay’/ ‘Pays all the bills her people thinks / are important enough to pay’ / is more accurate.
“When I went to get cash / just last week / for the three of us to eat / Nothing. Today I was shopping for birthday decor / 4th next Sunday! / Little cash for lunch? / Nope – not enough funds / No food.”
The couple is currently locked in a legal battle over their kids – Michaels wants full custody, while the singer has filed for joint responsibilities.
