Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels Split

Okay, folks, I admit it. It's a slow news day. I don't like doing a lot of fluff celebrity stories, but this one is at least a gay celeb story. Word came out this weekend that Melissa Etheridge, who's being called in some circles "the gay Liz Taylor" for her seeming inability to keep it in her pants, and her domestic partner Tammy have officially filed to end their 9-year relationship. People Magazine reports:

Melissa Etheridge went to court Friday to formally end her partnership with Tammy Lynn Michaels, seeking joint custody of their 3-year-old twins.

In a Petition for Dissolution of Domestic Partnership filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the singer, 49, cited irreconcilable differences and asked that the court not award financial support to Michaels.

Etheridge and Michaels, 35, who had registered as domestic partners in August 2005, ended their nearly nine-year relationship late last year. Michaels gave birth to son Miller and daughter Johnnie in 2006.

After the pair announced their separation in April, Michaels blogged that the split was not mutual or amicable, despite Etheridge's claims to the contrary.
