Rock legend and lesbian icon Melissa Etheridge has suffered an unimaginable tragedy: her son Beckett Cypher has died at age 21.
According to EW:
Beckett was Etheridge’s son with former partner Julie Cypher and was conceived via artificial insemination using friend David Crosby‘s sperm. The pair are also parents to Beckett’s older sister Bailey Jean. Etheridge also has 13-year-old twins with former partner Tammy Lynn Michaels.
