A Los Angeles County superior court judge Monday declined to order Melissa Etheridge to pay $25,000 to her ex, Tammy Lynn Michaels, having accepted a lawyer's argument that Etheridge is already paying the bills for Tammy and their children.
According to TMZ, "Tammy's lawyer wanted the judge to order Melissa to immediately pay 25k to his client, whom he claims is destitute. The lawyer wanted another 25k from Melissa for legal fees, but Melissa's attorney, Neal Hersh, convinced the judge Melissa was paying for everything -- housing, food, schools, the works -- so Tammy's claim that she can't afford to live is bogus."
The next hearing is set for September, according to TMZ.
