Singer-songwriter Etheridge marries

Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and gay rights activist Melissa Etheridge has got married, it has been reported.

People magazine says the 53-year-old married partner Linda Wallem at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California, on Saturday.

Melissa and 53-year-old Linda, a co-creator of the television series Nurse Jackie, began dating in 2010. They announced their engagement following the Supreme Court's decision on gay rights.

Besides the singer's four children, the magazine says several celebrities attended the ceremony, including Chelsea Handler, Rosie O'Donnell, Whitney Cummings, Peter Facinelli and recording artist Sia.

Melissa also has a new solo album scheduled for release in September.
