Gay icon Melissa Etheridge's former partner is fighting to stop the singer/songwriter from taking their kids on tour with her.

Tammy Lynn Michaels' request for an emergency hearing regarding the care of the former couple's six-year-old twins was denied by a Los Angeles judge on Friday (12Jul13), but a court date has been scheduled for next month (Aug13) to review the case.

According to court documents obtained by, the actress fears her kids are at risk of illness because they haven't been vaccinated against diseases like diphtheria, tetanus, measles and chicken pox.

She is also worried the twins will be exposed to rowdy female rock fans, who "remove their shirts and bras and throw them on stage".

Lynn Michaels also doesn't want her kids being around drugs, claiming, "There is use of marijuana on the tour bus and in the dressing rooms."

The former couple split in 2010 and the singer/songwriter recently announced she was planning to make use of California's new same sex marriage laws and wed her fiancee Linda Wallem.
