Melissa Etheridge's 21-year-old son, Beckett Cypher, has died of a drug overdose. Etheridge and her ex-partner, filmmaker Julie Cypher, had two children together — daughter Bailey and Beckett, both of whom were conceived via artificial insemination with David Crosby acting as the couple's sperm donor. The couple split in 2000.
Etheridge and her ex-wife Tammy Lynn Michaels are the parents to 13-year-old twins.
Fans learned of Beckett's death via Etheridge's social media, which announced yesterday: “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.”
