Tammy Lynn Michaels has accused her ex-wife, Melissa Etheridge, of not paying enough money each month for her to afford necessities for herself and their two children.
Michaels was requesting that Etheridge pay her $25,000, on top of another $25,000 for legal fees.
Neal Hersh, attorney for Etheridge, proved she was giving Michaels $2,000 a month for bills, housing, food and care for their three-year-old twins.
Hersh stated that, "Tammy is being completely supported by Melissa and has been since they separated. She's being well-provided for and then some, as are the children, which are Melissa's first priority."
Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has turned down Michael's demands for more money after ruling that Etheridge is already paying for her expenses.
Another hearing between the couple is scheduled in September.
Along with more money, Michaels is seeking full legal and physical custody of their two children, Miller and Johnnie. Etheridge is seeking joint custody.
