More Lezlicious Drama From Melissa And Tammy!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayLegal MattersLGBT


This is getting nastier and nastier!

Melissa Etheridge's split from Tammy Lynn Michaels is still less than amicable, and new court papers describe how effed the lezlicious singer has left her former lady love!

While Etheridge claims that Michaels "used our children as pawns," Tammy says that she has been left in a position where she has no income and needs almost $10k a month to pay her rent, feed her children and do their laundry, household chores, etc.

She'd also like $4,300 a month in childcare so she can find a job to support herself and her kids.

However, at the moment, Melissa reportedly only gives her $2,000 a month, despite her making up to $750,000 in that time!

Holy shit! Ridiculous.

It's not like Tammy's asking for money for herself - she's been left with nothing and is trying to keep her kids healthy and happy! We see no reason, given her income, that this should be an issue!

So awful!

We're still Team Tammy!

    Agree w/ Perez…TEAM TAMMY. Who stood by Melissa when she had cancer? Tammy. Who bore her children? Tammy. Who got her on the right diet and cooked for her during her sickness? Tammy. BOOOO Melissa. We no likey! There's nothing worse than a cheap beeyotch!

    That is not the whole story at all. Melissa E. pay ALL of the monthly household expenses as well as the 2k. Research better next time. Tammy isn't balls to the wall destitute over this split. She knows how much her ex partner earns and wants to live the cushy lifestyle as long as she can ride it out. Tammy listed 5k per month just for clothing expenses. WTF? There are always 2 sides to every story, and there are significant pieces missing from this post.

  4. 4

    She should be allowed to ask for money to maintain her standard of living during the marriage. When people get married, that's part of the deal - if you divorce, the main breadwinner will pay alimony. If you don't like it, don't get married or sign a prenup.

    Go Tammy.

    Team Tammy!!!

    I'm with u on this one (TeamTammy).MEL-lissa is just trying to get back at her with the intent,without me u have nothing.Well MEL who watched the kids while u were out touring making 750,000 a month.What we have her is another MEL…

  7. 7

    So give the kids to Melisa then, then let the golddigger find another gravy train.

  8. 8

    $4,300 a month is not much considering that she's a star. It's what my spouse and I make together, we're financially just a little tight and we're only two. Can't imagine how it would be if we had children!

    Team Tammy!!!

  9. 9

    Definitely Team Tammy but Melissa is paying the bills just no money to Tammy…and she needs money to spend on "stuff" each month…we all need to get Stuff!

    Get a better lawyer.
    Surely, annoying kunt, Gloria Allred, would help out a woman in trouble.
    I guess dykes don't make better husbands.

  12. 12

    Team Tammy as well. It's not like Tammy wants to continue being a stay at home Mom..she understands she has to get her own income…but Melissa needs to the right things for the kids. Please $2K a month with the lifestyle the babies have become accustomed to is not enough… I'm regular non celebrity working single mother who earns about that much a month and God knows HOW MUCH I F..UCKING STRUGGLE TO GET BY.

  13. 13

    Welcome to the world of what straight women put up with.
    I wouldn't be surprised if she becomes Anne Heche 2.0 after this harrowing experience with a lover.

    Tammy is lazy slut she needs to work

  15. 15

    First of all, they weren't legally married in the eyes of FEDERAL LAW. So Tammy is entitled to NOTHING. Why does she need an exhoribitant amount of money? All that amount for support? I don't think so. And she is not automatically entitled to alimony just because she was married. She is perfectly capable of getting a job like every one else. She doesn't need a 5000 monthly clothing allowance. She needs to figure out how to live like the rest of the world. The newspaper has lots of coupons and tips for saving money. It's called LIFE. TEAM MELISSA all the way. If Melissa is out making the bucks, then she shouldn't have to shelve it over to her ex. Maybe Melissa should have full custody. If Tammy can't sustain a job or do what she is supposed to. I love how the weak female routine comes into play when there is cash involved. She needs to get a life and realize her gravy boat is EMPTY!

  16. 16

    Holy crap, 2 grand a month adds up to 24,000 in a year, and that's barely enough for *one* person to live on, let alone to take care of a house and two kids! Who know Melissa Etheridge was so stingy? Yikes!

  17. slip says – reply to this



    I guess the big question is what rights does Tammy Really have? She had kids (artificially) And they were not even married, It was a Domestic Partnership.

    Community Property
    Community property is everything that partners own together. In most cases that includes
    anything that either of you earned and anything that either of you bought with those earnings
    after the date you registered as domestic partners but before the date of separation. This may not
    be the case if you have signed an agreement with your partner regarding rights to property. In
    that case or if you have questions, you should consult an attorney regarding community property.

  18. 18

    If the handlers of that vile, FUGLY Melissa UGridge were smart, they'd see that Melissa is the evil one here and the more this goes on, the worse she looks.

  19. 19

    TEAM TAMMY!!! Its the fucking least Melissa could do, support her family, after abandoning them.

  20. 20

    If you read the People article, it says Melissa gives Tammy $2,000 a month for Tammy's PERSONAL money and Melissa pays ALL household expenses. It would be different if she were only giving her 2k for everything. There are two sides to every story. I still think there is still more to the story with Tammy.

  21. 21

    NOBODY needs 10k/month to survive!! Melissa is paying all the household expenses so $2000 is more than enough to pay for misc. expenses. Tammy needs to learn to downgrade some things.

  22. 22

    Why does Melissa have to pay Tammy's way? They are both chicks. They are equal. Get your ass out and get a job Tammy.

  23. 23

    TEAM TAMMY all the way!
    SHAME ON YOU MELISSA, I used to like you …but no more :(

  24. 24

    My only thing for this Tammy dike is, welcome to the real world. Most single women don't go crying like babies i need this, I need that. They get off their asses, look for work, support their kids on their own and keep their heads held high, with pride and respect for themselves. Those are the real women of today, the one that if, they don't get help, they do it alone. They don't sit there expecting. Kudos to those. As for this one, I don't feel sorry for her, she just need to get a job. I was a single mom, raised my kids alone for many years, when things got crazy, dad took them, made me pay child support. So I've been in both side of the track and find it hard to believe this entitled bitch.

  25. 25

    10,000.00 per month?????????????? Why is it that I read these OUTRAGOUS amounts that are "NEEDED" to raise two children. I make $2,400.00 per month and pay 1,050.00 in rent. I struggle every day with one child left at home (out of three mind you that I have raised alone) and the aforementioned amounts are about the most I have EVER made. SOOOOOOOOO 10,000.00 per month is a lottery win not reasonable expenses unless you have the attitude that living like a wealthy person is your god-given right because you fucked a rich person. Get a grip and find a cheaper place to live for starters! And your kids will survive if they have to adjust down from the "style to which they have become accustomed". Not all wants are in fact "needs" no wonder the US is in such debt and trouble, the whole wants and needs thing is completely out of wack and it shows in both individual and national debt.

  26. 26

    There's a good lesson for all you lezzies out there - consider carefully your future sources of income when that ball-busting dyke you're with decides you should manufacture a few little urchins.

  27. 27

    Re: MonicaW42 – I absolutely agree with you! If things are like People magazine said, and Melissa is paying for everything plus $2,000 just for Tammy´s personal "stuff" it´s time for Tammy to get a job and go on with her life, beside everybody is saying: "the lifestyle Tammy have become accustomed" sorry but life changes and as long as you and your babies have a house, food, cloth, health care and education, you have to live with what you have, such is life, I had to do it, I´m a divorced woman with 2 kids, mi ex is very wealthy and when we divorced we -my kids and I - had to get used to our new way of life, a modest one, because my ex didnt want to pay for anything although he could do it, so I started to work again and 4 years later here we are -my kids and I- very happy and grateful with this new opportunity! so Tammy get over with it already!

  28. 28

    Melissa sure is painting an ugly picture of herself. She will have to answer to the kids when they are older and they ask her why she did this to Tammy.

    Legal or not it's about having morals and integrity…clearly Melissa has neither !

  29. 29

    What in the world could this woman have done to make Melissa so stingy/angry.. Whatever or however it ended, the kids are not at fault, and should not have to pay

  30. 30

    Why does she need $4,300.00 for child support, when she will probably get a job making $1,500.00? What qualifications does she even have? Let her stay at home to watch those kids.

  31. 31

    Melissa wanted to be Married, she called Tammy her wife, well Melissa, step up to your responsibilities. you were the breadwinner, now you have to support thw woman who exited her own career to stay home with the children. You wanted your rights, well with rights comes responsibilities.

  32. 32

    #3 - I agree with you. I have read other reliable news sources which indicate that Melissa pays for ALL household expenses including the kids private school. Before anyone jumps on the "Team Tammy" bandwagon, please get your FACTS from sources other than Perez.

  33. 33

    when are all of you "Team Tammy"s gonna realize THEY WERE NOT MARRIED!!!

    Melissa doesn't owe Tammy ANYTHING! and for all of you crying over her accustomed life style and Tammy putting her life on hold to have a baby…ya…it's the same decision millions of women make all the time….but Tammy knew the risks involved…I'm sure there was no gun put to her head and she wasn't shackled as a prisoner at home and not allowed to work!

    and also Tammy is NOT a celebrity! if she wasn't in this partnership with Melissa to begin with she would be totally irrelevant right now and probably working at some diner as a waitress!! her career ended a looooong time ago!

    if you ask me Melissa is being MORE then generous considering she rightfully doesn't have to give ANYTHING to her yes and just like some others have posted here, check your facts cuz the $2000/month is just an allowance…she doesn't have to spend one dime on her daughters well being! it's all taken care of! and $2000/month is more than i make working full time!

  34. 34

    Does anyone else feel that maybe Melissa is taking the high road in this and not telling her side of the story because it would make the mother of her children look bad? I would be very surprised if it were revealed that Melissa is really as cruel as she is being portrayed. I think the fact that she has been so tight-lipped throughout this in contrast to how vocal Tammy has been is interesting. She hasn't tried to defend herself. I just feel there is much more to the story. Tammy has posted wacky blogs in the past. Maybe there is a history of mental instability or substance abuse. Perhaps this would be why Melissa wants to limit Tammy's support to something she is sure could only be used to provide for her children. Just speculating, of course.

  35. 35

    again i thought we already went through this. didn't i read on a more credible site that the judge basically told this tammy broad she's full of it and exaggerating about having no money? didn't i read she's living in a home melissa pays for? i could've sworn i did

  36. 36

    My best friend is going through this.She gave up her career for her doctor ex husband who is a complete psycho.

  37. 37

    Team Tammy an infinite percent. She's a terrific actress, who dropped everything to take care of Melissa's two older children, take care of Melissa while she battled cancer, and to bore and raise twins. She's been a dynamic stay-at-home mom and deserves to be recognized for the incredible backbone she's been to the family. Melissa is nothing but a deadbeat without any scruples. F*ck you, Melissa. How can you do this to your partner and mother of your children?? You're nothing but a greedy b*tch.

  38. 38

    she looks like hilary duff in this pic

  39. 39

    Obviously Tammy is a gold-digger because who else would actually fuck Melissa Bulldyke Etheridge? Melissa's bush probably runs from her asshole to her bellybutton, poor Tammy for having to eat that every night!

  40. 40

    $4,000 a month for childcare? Bullshit. Most people don't even make that much a month to live on let alone for childcare. What a gold digging whore. I hope she has to live on the streets…

  41. 41

    she looks like kendra wilkinson

  42. 42

    I totally agree with PEREZ. As a lesbian, I am totally DISGUSTED with Melissa. I use to adore her and couldn't wait for the next CD or concert … she won't be getting another penny from me. Keepy strong Tammy and don't let her bully you.

  43. 43

    wow blimmin hell, you sure that isn't Hillary Duff?????

  44. 44

    It's def not right what Melissa is doing to Tammy. Tammy took on the agreement role of wife and stay at home mother while Melissa worked. Tammy took care of the kids when Melissa was doing work so I don't see why Melissa can't pay her.

  45. 45

    live like a man , pay like a man

  46. 46

    Re: Star Kitten
    bull crap - you obviously don't have children

  47. 47

    She reminds me of Hilary Duff.

  48. 48

    i get $316 a month in child support for 2 kids. $4,300 is waaaay too much imo…lower your standards a little bit. get a 'normal house', 'normal clothes', 'normal everything'!!!!! oh yeah, it's soooo awful that she can't get $4,300 a freaking month to support their kids.

  49. @v@ says – reply to this


    If Etheridge signed on for the family, she has as much responsibility as a male would in this type of situation, even though she's playing hardball like Scrooge.

  50. 50

    def team tammy. melissa is a fucked up old bitch.

  51. 51

    Re: @v@ – that's usually how the men do it when they get a divorce.

  52. 52

    Re: mattyesmateo – You are so clueless. She left everything behind when they had the kids to raise them. Melissa has responsibilities and she has to own up to them

  53. 53

    If this were a divorce, she would get half of everything earned during the marriage. I say the cheapskate should pay millions, plus child support.

  54. 54

    ah…this bitch is whining because Melissa filed papers to end their partnership before her tour started. No money off the tour for tammysue-boohoo.

    Re: WTFSTFUOMGILY – Melissa is being tight-lipped? How is going on fucking Oprah being tight-lipped? Oh, and whomever said the nonsense ab out marriage being a federal law is an idiot. Governing marriage, common law marriage and domestic partnerships is the domain of the individual states, so California law will determine the outcome here. Btw, bet the child care money is probably to pay for whatever domestic help or nanny they have already been using. Tammy can't pay that on her own, and why should the kids lose out on the stability and consistency of having a caregiver who stays with them regardless of which parent they're living with or visiting?

  56. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Becky Martin – True that; but not all men. You don't hear about the ones that quietly step up to the plate, and they're out there. If a person has that kind of money, it's easier to do the right thing. It's when the standard of living will really drop in a split, or the major breadwinner is ruthless or has a weird thing about money period that this happens.

  57. @v@ says – reply to this


    It does sound like Melissa is quietly covering essentials, anyway.

  58. 58

    It's time for Melissa to man-up and take care of her family.

  59. 59

    Everyday women seem to make it on less and with help from noone. Maybe if people put morethought into parenthood instead of using it as self promotion or a political statement, they would act more responsibly. In the meantime there is always the old adage of living within your means. Melissa, however, has proven that she is a selfish parent and I hope her ass gets ordered to pay support just like everyday ordinary men do. They both do a disservice to those of us wanting our rights.

  60. 60

    i'm Team Melissa !
