Melissa Etheridge has publicly chosen sides in the Brangelina war.
Speaking to Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM satellite radio show Radio Andy, the singer, who sang at Brad’s wedding to Jennifer Aniston, says she is “heartbroken” for her longtime friend.
The 55-year-old said the accusations against Brad, that he verbally and physically assaulted his kids are “completely unfounded.”
“It breaks my heart that anyone would take something as personal as your marriage and your relationship and your rights to your children and do it as purposefully as I see it’s being done,” Melissa said. “I’ve gone through family courts. I've been twice around this block, and I know it really well, and I know when there's some forethought to just how mean and just how you're going to put disinformation out there first.”
The rocker speaks from experience, having gone through her own nasty custody battle in 2010 with her ex, Tammy Lynn Michaels. She says she hasn’t spoken to her former friend Brad since he got together with Angelina while married to Jen.
“I really hope that he reaches back out. There are a lot of us who haven’t seen him in 10 years,” she said. “We all lost a friend.”
Melissa went on to say that Angelina hooked up with Billy Bob Thornton while he was still engaged to Laura Dern.
“I was around when Angelina was not doing nice things with Billy Bob to Laura Dern. I went through that on a personal level, and then to know the side of Jennifer and Brad…I helped Laura move out of her house with Billy Bob—I like broke into their home to get their stuff out because it was so nasty,” she said.
Brangelina now have reached a temporary custody agreement which includes therapy and drug testing. They are trying to avoid a public spectacle in court.
The duo’s six children Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, are staying with Angelina in the meantime.
