WOW. Someone cleaned out!
We reported last month that after almost two years of legally trying to rip each other's throats out over custody and financial support, Melissa Etheridge and her ex, Tammy Lynn Michaels, had reached a settlement in their domestic partnership split. It appears that the latter ended up receiving quite a significant chunk of change…in royalties from the rock star's music!
That right, under the terms of the agreement, Tammy walks away with 50% of the royalties from Melissa's album The Awakening, as well as from the songs A Simple Love, All There Is, All We Can Really Do, An Unexpected Rain, California, God Is in the People, Heroes and Friends, Imagine That, I've Loved You Before, Map of the Stars, Message to Myself, Open Your Mind, The Kingdom of Heaven, The Universe Listened, Threesome, and What Happens Tomorrow!
On the flip side, Melissa gets their properties in Arizona, California, and Arkansas, and they BOTH get to keep their respective Vespas!
Yeah. Seriously! LOLz!
Well, regardless of how fair the distribution of assets is, we're just glad that it's fair to THEM, and they can put all of this nastiness and fighting behind them!
You go, gurls! Keep it up!
