Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels After nearly nine years together, Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels have officially ended their relationship. Court records show Melissa Etheridge filed the paperwork on Friday in Los Angeles. They announced their separation in April, and the rocker told Oprah Winfrey it was mutual, but "sad."

Tammy Lynn Michaels ranted on her blog twice in one day to say she was completely blindsided by the filing.
