Melissa Etheridge has sided strongly with Brad Pitt over his divorce from Angelina Jolie.
Brad Pitt’s long-time friend Melissa Etheridge slams the recent claims of child abuse made against him as “completely unfounded”, and rounded on Angelina Jolie for causing their marriage to break apart.
The 55 year old country singer was speaking on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show on Monday (October 3rd), and was asked about the claims currently being thrown around in Brad and Angelina’s bitter divorce and the custody battle over their six children. An old friend of Pitt’s, having sung at his wedding to Jennifer Aniston several years ago, Etheridge didn’t mince her words.

Etheridge has two children with her former partner Julie Cypher.
Singer Melissa Etheridge has revealed that she almost asked Brad Pitt to be a sperm donor for her and former partner Julie Cypher in the late nineties. Speaking on Australia’s Studio 10 talk show, the 54-year-old explained how she nearly approached Pitt before asking singer David Crosby.
Melissa Etheridge says she considered Brad Pitt as a sperm donor.
“Well, actually, [Brad Pitt] was such a good friend of mine. And we did consider it. And yet, I looked and I saw how badly he wanted children and I thought, ‘I don’t want to share this with someone who really, badly wants children because my children don’t need another parent — they have two,’” Etheridge said.

Melissa Etheridge seems to be in a really good place right now, destroying the "tortured artist" cliche one song at a time.
It’s too early in the week to feel nostalgic about things that happened to someone else, but then Melissa Etheridge just came out with a new video, so if we must. At 53, Etheridge is at the peak of her career, has more two Grammys and an Oscar, 15 albums and has built up a name as a performer and activist. So when she wants to take a look back, there’s a lot that could go into that video.
Melissa Etheridge has a really long Memory Lane to walk down.
At the beginning of the video we see Etheridge playing her guitar in a room – it really helps to think of it as an old attic – with all her accomplishments. There are awards, video footage projected on the wall, photos and all those things people typically save from their golden years and never look at twice.
The pair tied the knot in a beautiful summer ceremony.

"By the power invested in me by the state of California..." Thanks" she tweeted yesterday.
"They were so happy," a wedding guest told People. "It was really beautiful." The photo shows that the 'Bring Me Some Water' star opted for a flamboyant grey suit with coattails and a purple necktie whilst her lover wore a stunning, textured, white summer wedding gown. Flowers were clearly a key theme for the nuptials and are featured prominently in the garden's floral scenery as well as in the Nurse Jackie creator's large bouquet.

Bisexual Scottish actor, Alan Cumming was recently made aware of the rumour that he and Keanu Reeves had secretly been married to each other - despite neither of them ever meeting!
Alan Cumming, the Scottish actor known for 'Goldeneye' and 'Spy Kids', was recently confused by the knowledge that he and Keanu Reeves were married. The bisexual actor was astonished by the news in 2004, mostly due to the fact that he had never met the 'Matrix' star.
In a recent interview, Cumming stated "Someone had sent me this thing from this website and it said I had got married to Keanu. We got married in a secret ceremony, I wept throughout the entire thing, he was very butch about it all and Melissa Etheridge was there and she hummed one of her songs whilst we were getting married. Can't remember, but some other gay people were there."
