From friends to lovers! Now that Tammy Lynn Michaels is out of the picture, Linda Wallem is the singer’s new love interest.

Her marriage ended last April, and apparently that July her best friend became more than that. They seem to have a unique bond and are very happy together, even if Tammy is angry!

Linda Wallem is a TV producer/executive who actually was the “best woman” at the wedding of her current girlfriend. Melissa Etheridge just announced that they are now in a committed relationship and immediately we heard from the former wife. Check out a picture of the two of them here.

There has been some drama between the exes ever since the news last April. Lately though they seemed to be doing okay, and are even rumored to be working on projects together. However with this latest news, Tammy Lynn Michaels took to Twitter to let all of her thoughts known. She said:

“i moved out november 23rd 2009/she said it would help/i was convinced it would/too and i trusted there was/no one else. i didn’t know/there was someone moving in/as i was moving out/indeed.”

The implication is that the new pair may have gotten together before the marriage ended. The music star maintains that it was after the breakup. Either way a source close to the couple is serious and that “Linda has been talking constantly on the set about how she and Melissa are in love.”

What do you think about the new pair and how it all happened? Do you think Linda Wallem got together with the celebrity before she was single? Well she has been Melissa Etheridge’s girlfriend for some time and they seem to be in it for the long haul. After you enjoy these pictures and video, leave me your comments below.

    I was a huge MLE fan and now well let’s just say I’ll never buy another CD! I loved her music, but can’t seem to listen to it in the same way any longer, it’s like listening to lies! All I have to say is Linda needs to enjoy her life now cause Melissa is only going to rip your heart out when the next women she wants to champion comes along! The relationship will end as it started, cheating and lies!
    I hope all of her children survive ok through this mess! Her oldest for sure! They can’t seem to ever feel secure in their own home cause it’s a never ending change.

    Dear Linda,

    Congratulations on your newest love affair with
    Melissa Etheridge! Now ask yourself this – How does it feel to back stab a friend like Tammy? It’s all good in your book. For Tammy produced children for Melissa. I guess you are the one that will produce more $ for Melissa! So you go girl! Enjoy your love life! What saddens me the most is that none of you truly know what love is all about! My heart bleeds for all of you!

    I still adore Melissa as much as I always have but I’m really sad for Tammy and the pain she has been put through. She did deserve better, as did their children.
