Michelle's mother, Priscilla Esterline has a net worth of $200,000. She accumulated her riches from her business and also got child support money and alimony from John.
Michelle grew up with a great number of half-siblings, and by great numbers, we mean 4 from different stepmothers too. Her step-siblings are Teddi Mellencamp, Justice Mellencamp, Hud Mellencamp,and Speck Mellencamp. It comes as a shock but Michelle is actually very close to her half-siblings.
John spent as much time as he could with them together so all of them hung out together a lot. This definitely made them closer and built a strong connection with each other.
Born To Young Parents
Michelle, being the first kid of the famous Mellencamp, had him become a father at a young age. He had only gotten out of high school and after 6 months, Michelle was born.
He obviously had a hard time as well as Priscilla but the two did not give up and tried very hard to raise her to become a humble and independent woman.
When Michelle's parents got divorced, Pricilla got custody of her. She went really low-key after the divorce and stayed away from the drama and the limelight. She raised Michelle alone and did not date anyone whereas John got married to his second wife the same year he and Priscilla got divorced.
Has A Child
Michelle likes to stay hidden from the limelight so when her name started to pop off on gossip columns, everyone started being curious. It turns out Michelle got pregnant while she was only 18.
She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Elexis Susan Peach. While others would have been pissed, John was very nice and calm about being a grandfather at the age of 37. Her daughter started to call him "Peepaw" which made him adore him even more.
