In detailed new court papers, Melissa Etheridge says she cherishes every moment she can spend with her kids between her tour dates this summer. So, she was shocked when she traveled to Boston on July 6 to see 3-year-old twins Johnnie Rose and Miller – only to be served with court papers from her ex instead.

“[She] used our children as pawns,” the rocker, 49, says in court papers released Thursday in her increasingly bitter split with Tammy, 35.

In other papers released Thursday, Tammy revealed her finances as she continues to seek support from Etheridge.
