Tammy Michaels Etheridge's attorney claimed in an L.A. courtroom on Monday that singer Melissa Etheridge is not footing her fair share of the bills and has left her ex and their twins broke ass. Etheridge's attorney refuted the claim, of course.
Michaels Etheridge's lawyer Steven Knowles said "Melissa is paying various sundry expenses," but says that Tammy and their 3-year-old twins, Johnnie and Miller, are "destitute." Knowles adds, "It doesn't put money in her wallet. Literally she has no cash." Destitute? I think that Mr. Knowles needs to take a ride to abandoned coal towns in the Southern counties in West Virginia, like McDowell county, where the per capita income hovers around $12,000 if he wants to learn the meaning of destitute. While Etheridge's ex might be struggling a bit, I doubt he used the right phrase here.
Knowles also claims Tammy's credit card has been declined when she's tried to purchase groceries and clothing for their children, something Hersh says is, if true, "a one-off situation."
Team Tammy or Team Melissa?
