Tammy Lynn Michaels just isn’t going to throw cyber punches at her ex Melissa Etheridge on her blog. Tammy has decided to take their fight to the next level by filing a bunch of legal papers in court asking for full custody of their chirruns as well a monthly check from Melissa. When Melissa filed to end their marriage a week ago, she made it clear that she wanted joint custody of their two kids and that she didn’t want to pass Tammy Lynn one single dollar. Cue up the soundtrack for Kramer vs. Kramer (as performed by the Indigo Girls), because there’s about to be a battle.
Tammy’s attorney tells TMZ that when Melissa walked out on her ass, she left her broke. If you jumped into Tammy’s checking account, you’d find only 4 single dollar bills sitting there. That’s what Tammy’s attorney claims anyways. Her lawyer also explained that Tammy filed for “dissolution of marriage” instead of “dissolution of domestic partnership,” because in her eyes she’s married to Melissa. But it might have to do with money, because TMZ points out that Tammy can’t ask for spousal support if they weren’t married.
Melissa’s lawyer shot back and said that Tammy must be sick with the White Oprahs, because as far as he knows she isn’t broke at all. He explained, “Melissa is paying all of Tammy’s expenses, which totals tens of thousands of dollars per month.”
Will somebody please print this whole saga out and slip it under the doors of every gay marriage hater in California? Don’t they want us gays and gayelles to be as fucking miserable as them?
And how can Melissa do this to someone who was in POPULAR (one of the greatest shows of 1999)? That cold gayelle is cold!
