Back when MELISSA ETHERIDGE and her then-partner Julie Cypher were looking for someone to supply the JUICE for their two kids back in the late ’90s, they went with DAVID CROSBY, a musically talented, chubby addict with male-pattern baldness and curly clown hair.
But here’s who they ALMOST went with: BRAD FREAKIN’ PITT. (!!!)
Melissa says, quote, “I saw how badly he wanted children and I thought, ‘I don’t want to share this with someone who really, badly wants children because my children don’t need another parent . . . they have two.'”
She says Crosby was a perfect choice because he and his wife had already had their own kids, and were just looking to do it as a gift.
So how do Melissa’s kids feel about it? She says, quote, “Of course, my teenagers now are like, ‘I could have had Brad Pitt [as my dad]!’ My son said, ‘I could’ve been amazingly handsome!’ . . . [but] my children are lovely and gorgeous anyway.”
