    Default Beckett Cypher, son of Julie Cypher and Melissa Etheridge, 21, Dies Suddenly

    eckett Cypher, Melissa Etheridge’s son with her former partner Julie Cypher, has died of undisclosed causes, a rep for the singer confirmed to Variety.
    © Peter Brooker/ShutterstockA Tweet from the singer’s social media account reads: “We’re sad to inform you that Melissa’s son Beckett passed away and there will not be a Concerts From Home show today. – #TeamME.”
    No further information was available at press time, but the rep said a statement is forthcoming.
    Etheridge and Cypher had two children together during their partnership: a daughter, Bailey, in February of 1997 and Beckett (pictured above with Etheridge in 2011) on Nov. 18 of the following year. The children were born via artificial insemination and the biological father was later revealed to be singer David Crosby.
    In a telling example of how much the world has changed in 20 years, Etheridge and Crosby appeared on “60 Minutes” in 2000 to discuss the arrangement and the children growing up without a male parent in the home.
    “I do not believe that my children will be wanting in any way because they didn’t have a father in the home every single day,” Etheridge said. “What they have in the home is two loving parents. I think that puts them ahead of the game.”
    The couple split up in 2000, although they initially lived in back-to-back houses to facilitate coparenting.

    That is horribly sad. So young.

    Is this the wife that went a bit nuts after the divorce and wrote really bad poetry about it all the time? I'm not trying to make light of that, but I'm just thinking this will be exceptionally hard for her. But it would be hard for anyone.

    No That was Tammy Lynn Micheals, who was married to Melissa after Julie Cypher. They had twins who are still young. Like 10-12 or something.

    I forgot about Julie Cypher being married to Lou Diamond Phillips before Melissa. I think she actually left him for Melissa! I know she married a man after Melissa and I think is still married.

    I think after all that drama Melissa and Tammy managed to suck it up for their kids' sake and they claim they're friendly now.

    Ohh...the Lou Diamond Phillips wife! Now I remember her and yeah, I think she did leave Lou for Melissa. Thanks for that, I couldn't remember. I knew that name didn't sound right for the poetry writer person.

    Melissa Etheridge reveals son Beckett Cypher died from opioid addiction

    Melissa Etheridge’s son Beckett died from opioid addiction, the singer revealed Wednesday night.

    “Today I joined the hundreds of thousands of families who have lost loved ones to opioid addiction,” wrote the singer, 58. “My son Beckett, who was just 21, struggled to overcome his addiction and finally succumbed to it today.

    “He will be missed by those who loved him, his family and friends. My heart is broken. I am grateful for those who have reached out with condolences and I Feel their love and sincere grief,” the note continued.

    “We struggled with what else we could have done to save him and in the end we know he is out of the pain now.”

    “I will sing again, soon,” Etheridge’s note concluded. “It has always healed me.”

    Etheridge met her ex-partner, Beckett’s mother, Julie Cypher, in 1986 on the set of the video for her single “Bring Me Some Water.” Cypher at the time was married to actor Lou Diamond Phillips, and after divorcing him in 1990, went on to have daughter Bailey, 23, and Beckett with Grammy winner Etheridge. They eventually revealed that their sperm donor was 1960s icon David Crosby.

    How heartbreaking... and there but for the grace of God go so many of us as parents. I've often felt it is a genuine miracle that so many children make it to adulthood. No matter how smart they are, there is an innate stupidity that can only be cured by time and brain development. My heart goes out to them.

    I wonder if his parents tried to do an intervention or anything...twenty one is too freaking young to die from opioid addiction. Any death at age is sad, but I wonder how long he was addicted.
