Melissa and Tammy Etheridge break up after nine years



Tbd-melissaetheridge041610 We've got a couple big separations for you Juice*heads to mourn: First up: Melissa and Tammy Etheridge have broken up after almost nine years together. At least they had a couple more kids that can come from a broken home.

"Melissa and Tammy Etheridge are saddened to announce that they are now separated," Melissa's rep told people. The statement said the couple added, "We ask for consideration and respect for our family as we go through this difficult period."

Melissa and Tammy Lynn Michaels exchanged vows in September 2003. Tammy, 35, gave birth to son Miller and daughter Johnnie Rose in 2006. Melissa, 48, has two kids -- Bailey, 13, and Beckett, 11, who were fathered by David Crosby -- with former partner Julie Cypher, with whom Melissa broke up in September 2000. At this rate, Melissa will be back with someone in about three years, so stay tuned.
