    Strap yourself in; this could be one helluva a cat fight. Singer Melissa Etheridge filed to formally end her relationship with her partner of nine years, Tammy Lynn Michaels, 35. Michaels, who has two children with Etheridge, is airing her lesbian dirty laundry and posted inflammatory comments on her blog over the weekend, expressing her shock and pain over the filing.

    In a post titled "Blindsiding," Michaels wrote, "gentle waves / no noise for awhile / or maybe gentle voices and / SMACK!!!!!!!!!!!! / FILE FOR DIVORCE!!!!!! / even though we both promised / agreed / handshook / pinkyswore / no filing until after the tour / in the fall." Wow. Damn. She is using lyrics to make her point. Wonder if Mel E. is penning a song in response?

    Michaels also posted: "Her broken promises / told to me by/ headlines / i'm raising the kids / doing what i can / second set of yours." This is getting good, if you are a gossip monger, so stay tuned for more.

    For her part, Etheridge cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and asked that the court not award Michaels financial support. Michaels gave birth to the couple's son Miller and daughter Johnnie in 2006. Etheridge has not commented on her ex's public rantings…yet.

    Is Michaels' posting going too far? Should she stop for the sake of the children?
