Tammy Lynn: Melissa Etheridge Left Me Broke

Melissa Etheridge Tammy Lynn Michaels

Tammy Lynn Michaels and Melissa Etheridge's break-up keeps getting messier.

Tammy Lynn Michaels and Melissa Etheridge were the picture of happiness in 2003 when they exchanged vows, but, now, like many married couples, the two are going through a nasty divorce. Adding even more fuel to the fire, aspiring memoirist Tammy Lynn has decided to blog the blow-by-blow details.

Although Melissa announced their separation months ago, it wasn't until last week that she officially filed for divorce, something that Tammy Lynn said she didn't see coming. According to the Huffington Post, Melissa asked for joint custody of their twins - son Miller and daughter Johnnie Rose - that Tammy Lynn gave birth to in 2006, but requested that she not have to pay Tammy Lynn any financial support.

After hearing about the proceedings, Tammy Lynn took to her blog to tell her side of the story and, in her poetic-style, made Melissa seem like a deadbeat lesbian dad, writing:

no filing until after tour

In addition to their twins, Tammy Lynn also helped parent Melissa's two older children while she was on tour and claims that she gave up a successful acting career, which included stints on TV shows like the L Word and Popular, to focus on their family.

She went on to write:

"the other week i had to borrow money from a friend. two weeks ago i had to scrape together $1.25 to pay for gas. i know she doesn't want to give me money. trust. i'm borrowing cash left and right from people to get through this summer, and feed my kids, with a stomach full of ulcers, thank you. no stress here. :-)"

Something tells us that this isn't the last we will hear from Tammy Lynn, but we think she'd be better off writing a tell-all book than giving the details away on her blog for free.
