Melissa Etheridge Confirms Her Son Died From Opioid Addiction

Oscar and Grammy-winning rock star, Melissa Etheridge has confirmed that her son Beckett Cypher whose death was announced only yesterday, died from Opioid addiction. 

The singer took to her Instagram to confirm what killed her son, Beckett, saying she has joined hundreds of thousands of families who have lost loved ones to opioid addiction. She said: 

Today I joined the hundreds of thousands of families who have lost loved ones to opioid addiction. My son Beckett, who was just 12, struggled to overcome his addiction and finally succumbed to it today. He will be missed by those who loved him, his family and friends.

My heart is broken. I am grateful for those who have reached out with condolences and I feel their love and sincere grief.

We struggle with what else we could have done to save him and in the end, we know he is out of the pain now.

I will sing again, soon. It has always healed me.” she said.

She had announced Wednesday her son with filmmaker Julie Cypher died. Melissa’s team tweeted, “We’re sad to inform you that Melissa’s son Beckett passed away and there will not be a Concerts From Home show today. — #TeamME.”

Melissa had been performing Facebook Live concerts and offering virtual guitar lessons for just $10 during this pandemic quarantine. It’s unclear at this time what led to Beckett’s death.

Julie and Melissa had to 2 children via artificial insemination during their partnership. Their daughter, Bailey Jean, was born in February 1997, and Beckett in November 1998. For a while, the couple was reluctant to discuss who fathered the kids but they eventually revealed rock singer David Crosby is the biological father of both children.

Cypher — who was previously married to Lou Diamond Phillips — and Etheridge ultimately split in September 2000.

Beckett was 21
