On Monday evening, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee was allegedly violently attacked by his 21-year-old son with ex-wife Pamela Anderson, Brandon Thomas Lee. The elder Lee posted a selfie showing a bloody lip 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!” Lee has since deleted the post.
Police were called to Lee’s Calabasas mansion in response to a 911 call believed to be placed by Tommy Lee’s fiance Brittany Furlan, describing Tommy being assaulted by Brandon. Brandon was not arrested and it is unclear if any charges will be filed.
Rumors and speculation are swirling around the internet as to what caused the alleged assault. People reports that Brandon blames his father’s reported alcoholism. People published another article from Tommy Lee’s perspective, giving a much different version of the events that transpired Monday evening. Brandon, however, has maintained that his account of Monday’s incident is the truth.

Lee is the son of actress Pamela Anderson and musician Tommy Lee. Anderson was a Playboy model who eventually transitioned into acting, appearing on Home Improvement before landing her iconic role on the hit series Baywatch. Tommy Lee is the drummer of legendary hair metal band Mötley Crüe, known for his hard partying and notorious rock and roll lifestyle.
Lee and Anderson wed merely four days after they met in 1995, and a tumultuous, scandalous marriage ensued. Two explicit sex tapes of the couple were leaked, adding additional notoriety to their relationship. Anderson gave birth to Brandon in 1995 and a second son, Dylan, in 1998. Anderson and Lee filed for divorce in 1998, and Anderson would later go on to publicly state in 2002 that Lee infected her with Hepatitis C by sharing contaminated tattoo needles with her.
The former couple’s divorce was described as contentious, and there have been conflicts between the two since the split, several of which played out in public. Unfortunately, according to Brandon, the Lee children were often caught in the middle of their parents’ disagreements.
