It sounds amicable, but still sad.
A source close to Melissa and Tammy Etheridge says of their split after nine years together:
"There's no third party involved. They just drifted apart over time. There's no animosity whatsoever — they are on friendly terms. They're co-parenting their twins [Miller and Johnnie Rose, 3]. They are living apart but share custody of the kids."
No drama there, but it sounds like they're doing what's best for their family.
We hope the kids are doing okay.
