Melissa Etheridge made it very clear which team she was on, supporting Brad Pitt in the Brangelina divorce.

The singer, who’s a long-time friend of Pitt’s, stopped by Andy Cohen Live on Sirius XM and said Angelina Jolie and her legal team are going about the divorce all wrong.

“It breaks my heart that anyone would take something as personal as your marriage and your relationship and your rights to your children and do it as purposefully as I see it’s being done,” Etheridge said, voicing public support for Pitt amid his ongoing divorce drama and recent allegations of child abuse.

“There’s a way to be. I’ve gone through family courts,” the 55-year-old told Cohen. “I’ve been twice around this block, and I know it really well, and I know when there’s some forethought to just how mean [you can be] and just how you’re going to put disinformation out there first.”

The musician, who sang at Pitt’s wedding to Jennifer Aniston, admits to having lost contact with Pitt a couple years into his relationship with Jolie: “I really hope that he reaches back out because there are a lot of us who haven’t seen him in 10 years… and it was hard then. We all lost a friend.”

She also remembers Laura Dern’s messy breakup with Jolie’s ex, Billy Bob Thornton. While Thornton claims he broke off his engagement with Dern before marrying Jolie in 2000, Dern has said she was working on a movie when she unexpectedly heard about their wedding in the tabloids.

“Some day I’ll write a book,” the Come To My Window singer said. “I was around when Angelina was not doing nice things with Billy Bob to Laura Dern. I went through that on a personal level, and then to know the side of Jennifer [Aniston] and Brad.”

“I helped Laura move out of her house with Billy Bob,” she added. “I like broke into their home to get her stuff out because it was so nasty.”

This isn’t the first time the I’m The Only One hitmaker has publicly slammed Jolie.

In 2013, shortly after Jolie revealed she had undergone a preventive double mastectomy in a published op-ed, she disputed the choice, “I have to say I feel a little differently. I have that gene mutation too, and it’s not something I would believe in for myself,” Etheridge, a breast cancer survivor, told the Washington Blade at the time. “I wouldn’t call it the brave choice. I actually think it’s the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer.”

Brangelina recently struck a temporary custody deal that requires Pitt undergo alcohol and drug tests; Jolie’s temporary full physical custody of the couple’s six kids was granted in the agreement. Pitt also volunteered to participate in individual counselling.
