Melissa and Tammy Etheridge Call It Quits

By Erin Blakeley |

Is it me, or have their been a lot of break-ups in Hollywood the last few weeks? More than usual? Well, add another one to the list: Melissa and Tammy Etheridge have announced today that they are calling it quits after nine years of being together. The couple, pictured here on a family outing with their now three-year-old twins, daughter Johnnie Rose and son Miller, were married in 2003. Their rep announced the split to People this morning, and released a statement, asking “for consideration and respect for our family as we go through this difficult period.”

The couple has gone through a roller coaster of highs and lows in the last few years. Melissa survived a bout of breast cancer in 2005, and a year later Tammy gave birth to their twins. Melissa also has two older children from a previous relationship, Bailey, 13 and Beckett, 11.

No word on how the two plan to handle custody of their two children.
