Tommy Lee’s Son Says the Drummer Is an Alcoholic

  • Axl Rosenberg

Brandon Thomas Lee, son of former Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson, has officially outclassed his old man.

If you missed it: earlier this week, the Methods of Mayhem mastermind alleged that Brandon assaulted him, facetiously referring to his offspring as a “great son.” A source close to the situation subsequently told TMZ that Lee was drunk when the altercation transpired, and that Brandon was only acting in self-defense.

Now People reports that Brandon has a released a statement in which he reinforces this version of events:

“I’m devastated at the events of the last several days that have been a result of my father’s alcoholism. I’ve worked tirelessly organizing an intervention and it’s incredibly upsetting that it never came to fruition. I wanted my dad’s hopeful sobriety and recovery to be a private family matter but, as a result of his accusations on social media, I feel forced to speak out. I have and will continue to cooperate with law enforcement as needed. I love my father and just want to see him sober, happy and healthy.”

Tommy subsequently took to Twitter to respond to Brandon’s statement. But before you read that response, keep in mind that Brandon is 21 and Tommy is 55, okay? Okay. So here’s the response:

“LMAAAO!!!! I’m happier than I’ve been in my entire life. I have a few drinks here & there because I’m fuckin retired and enjoying my life. I worked 30+ fuckin years I deserve it. You didn’t arrange any intervention, you barely spoke to me while u were here. Just coverin ur ass!!”

At least in the court of public perception, Tommy lost this fight the moment he hit ‘send’ on that tweet. Brandon’s statement, which was written in complete sentences and makes a point of saying he still loves his father, comes off as being far mature than Lee’s statement, which reads as though it were composed by a high school girl and includes no attempts to be conciliatory or even just political. It just does not look good when your son says “I love you” and your reply is “Just coverin ur ass!!”. It also does not help your assertion that you’re sober.

But hey, who knows. Maybe Brandon is an evil master manipulator and Tommy is the innocent one here. Hopefully he clears this all up with a shitty alt-rock ballad sometime real soon.
