Melissa Etheridge Says She 'Didn't Want to Blame Genetics' After Son Beckett's Fatal Overdose https://t.co/7i5caJ8Ep0— People (@people) September 21, 2020
Her children Beckett and Bailey were born from a sperm donation from David Crosby, who battled addiction
Melissa was invited on Tamron Hall Show. She spoke about Beckett's opioid addiction and death.
"I didn't want to blame genetics. I know we have predispositions. My oldest daughter [Bailey Jean] who's about two years older than Beckett, is extremely successful, graduated from Columbia University, getting her master's at the London School of Economics."
"So the genes are there, but the choices then are the individual's to make and Beckett just, kind of, made the choices that made it harder and harder for him," she continued.
