The lesbian battle rages on between singer Melissa Etheridge and her former domestic partner, Tammy Lynn Michaels. In detailed new court papers obtained by People, Etheridge claims that she cherishes every moment she can spend with her kids between her tour dates this summer, refuting claims made by her ex, who says that the singer has left her and their children high and dry, and broke ass.
Etheridge says she was shocked when she traveled to Boston on July 6 to see the pair's 3-year-old twins Johnnie Rose and Miller, only to be served with court papers from her ex. Michaels actually carried the twins to term and they are the product of artificial insemination; the father has not been revealed. The ex-couple are really taking shots at one another, with Michaels heading online to publicly discuss the pair's break up. She says she was blindsided by Etheridge's exiting the relationship.
Etheridge isn't taking things lying down, either. "[She] used our children as pawns," Etheridge, 49, stated in court papers released Thursday.
