Melissa Etheridge Returns to Social Media for First Time Since Son's Tragic Death

Melissa Etheridge has returned to social media for the first time since the tragic death of her son Beckett Cypher, who was 21.

The 58-year-old musician revealed that Beckett passed away from an opioid overdose in a statement shortly after his death.

Melissa released a statement on Monday (June 8) and said, “I just wanted to update you all. I have made myself busy by fixing up my studio here in the house. It has healed me, greatly. While nothing but time will heal the empty space in my heart, I have been hopeful watching the world rise up and ask for more love.”
