Singer Melissa Etheridge and her longtime squeeze Tammy have separated after nine years.

"Melissa and Tammy Etheridge are saddened to announce that they are now separated," the cancer-surviving rocker's rep told People magazine.

The former couple add in a statement: "We ask for consideration and respect for our family as we go through this difficult period."

Melissa, 48, and Tammy (formerly Tammy Lynn Michaels) consider themselves married after exchanging vows in Malibu in September 2003.

Tammy, 35, gave birth to their children – son Miller and daughter Johnnie Rose – in 2006, after Etheridge was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004.

Etheridge is also mom two children, Bailey, 13, and Beckett, 11, with former partner Julie Cypher.
