Mellissa Etheridge’s son Beckett has died at 21 – he had been struggling to overcome an opioid addiction

This is so, so very sad.

Melissa Etheridge and ex-partner Julie Cypher’s 21-year-old son Beckett has died.

The singer’s team confirmed news of his death on Twitter Wednesday afternoon. “We’re sad to inform you that Melissa’s son Beckett passed away and there will not be a Concerts From Home show today,” her team wrote in the statement. No further information has been released regarding his cause of death.

Etheridge has posted a message on Instagram (see below) sharing that her son had an opioid addiction.

People.com has a story with some background on Beckett whose biological father is singer David Crosby.

Heartbreaking.
