Mötley Crüe rocker Tommy Lee was allegedly involved in a brawl with his 21-year-old son Brandon Lee on Monday evening.


Officers from the LAPD responded to Lee’s California home after reports that Brandon punched Lee multiple times. The drummer posted a since-deleted photo to Instagram of his bloodied face with the caption “My heart is broken. You can give your kids everything they could ever want in their entire lives and they can still turn against you. Good job Brandon. Great son!”

Meanwhile, Brandon claims that he was “defending himself” from his drunk father, according to TMZ. The 21-year-old also spoke out on an Instagram story on Monday saying that, “as I get older, I have started to realize that there are very few people you can trust.”

In response, Lee tweeted at TMZ to “get your facts straight before you go reporting bulls–t. 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.”

On the same night of the alleged incident, Pamela Anderson, who is Brandon’s mother and Lee’s ex, spoke about their 1998 abuse case to Piers Morgan. “@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),” tweeted Lee in retaliation.

This tweet is assumed to be the motivation for the brawl between the father and son.

Lee was arrested in 1998 and spent six months in prison after pleading no contest to assaulting Anderson. He also was ordered to pay $6,200 to a battered women’s shelter, a domestic violence fund and a victim restitution program. Lee and Anderson share two children – Brandon and Dylan Jagger Lee.
