Well so much for that attempt. Tammy Lynn Michaels attempted to have a settlement between her and her former domestic partner Melissa Etheridge out, but the judge ruled that the settlement stands. TMZ is reporting that the terms of the settlement are fairly generous with Tammy getting $13,000 a month in spousal support and another $10,000 in child support. They also have joint custody. Etheridge keeps several of their properties as well.
Michaels gets half the royalties from the album The Awakening and half from the songs “A Simple Love, All There Is, All We Can Really Do, An Unexpected Rain, California, God is in the People, Heroes and Friends, Imagine That, I’ve Loved You Before, Map of the Stars, Message to Myself, Open Your Minds, The Kingdom of Heaven, The Universe Listened, Threesome, and What Happens Tomorrow.” They also keep their own Vespas.
