On the Fight Card, Tommy Lee vs. Son Brandon

by VVN Music

It's been quite the 24 hours for ex-Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.

Early on Wednesday (March 7), TMZ reported that Tommy had been taken to the hospital for examination after his 21-year-old son, Brandon, hit him in the mouth causing some very obvious swelling.

While not everything has been explained, it appears that the dispute started when Lee tweeted about an interview done by Piers Morgan with Tommy's ex-wife and Brandon's mother Pamela Anderson.  Tommy wrote "@piersmorgan ur interviews w/ Donald Trump & my ex-wife are pathetic! Think she’d find something new to discuss instead of rehashing old shit but I guess she has nothing else going on & needs attention 🤷🏻‍♂️ Signed, “The abuser” (who she texts everyday & asks for me back)"

The site reports that the two got into an altercation over the Tweet and additional pictures Lee posted of Anderson making faces with Brandon claiming that he was "defending his mother". Allegedly, Tommy was drunk and lunged at his son with Brandon responding by cold cocking his dad. 

Tommy's finance, Brittany Furlan, told TMZ a different story, saying that she and Lee were in their bedroom when Brandon texted from another part of the house demanding that Tommy remove the offending pictures. When Tommy responded asking why they bothered him, Brandon burst into the room and challenged his father to a fight. Lee told his son to get out and got up to help him out the door when Brandon knocked Tommy out.

Reports say that Furlan thought that Tommy was dead when he was out a number of minutes. After coming to and calling medics, it was determined that Lee most likely had a concussion.

Police were also called and are in the process of investigating the incident with the possibility of charging Brandon with assault.

Lee backed up his fiancee's version of the story on Twitter, saying "Hey @TMZ maybe get your facts straight before you go reporting bullshit. My fiancé and I were in bed when my son busted into the room and assaulted me. I asked him to leave the house and he knocked me unconscious. He ran away from the police. THAT’S the truth."

Early Wednesday evening, Lee also responded to a report that Brandon had blamed the fight on his father's alcoholism. "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!!"
