Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Divorce: Melissa Etheridge Cashed In With A Song

After she was warned by Angelina Jolie’s camp for defending Brad Pitt against child abuse allegations brought by Jolie, Melissa Etheridge decided to pen a song on the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce.

Etheridge, who was friends with Pitt in the past, appeared on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show “Radio Andy,” and said, “It breaks my heart that anyone would take something as personal as your marriage and your relationship and your rights to your children and do it as purposefully as I see it’s being done…. There’s a way to be. I’ve gone through family courts.”

According to a report by the Billboard, a crisis manager got in touch with her shortly afterward and warned her not to speak any further on the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce. This inspired her to write a song. She joined Cohen once again on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Wednesday night to discuss the incident and to sing the tune.

“There are people whose job it is to kind of fix things for celebrities,” she said during the show.

“Like Olivia Pope,” Cohen interjected. Ironically, Jolie hired Judy Smith, the crisis manager who is the real life inspiration behind “Scandal” DC fixer Pope, played by Kerry Washington, the Page Six reported.

“I understand because sometimes we say things — I haven’t seen Brad in forever,” Melissa Etheridge said about the warning. “And certainly haven’t seen him since he’s been with Angelina. And every time I say something, it gets out there and it gets turned around and twisted, and all of a sudden I’m saying something about her.”

According to a report by the ABC News, Etheridge said that she wrote the song titled, “The Fixer Blues,” to clarify speculations that she was bashing Pitt’s estranged wife. One of the lines from the song goes “I have not seen my friend in over 10…years and I swear I have never, ever, ever, ever met his wife.”

Although the song did not attempt to defend Pitt, it did take a dig at breakups. In one part of the song Etheridge sings “The moral of this story — divorce is a bitch, and nobody wins.”
