Tommy Lee’s Son Calls for End to Father’s Day Beef
Tommy Lee’s son Brandon lashed back once again over a Father’s Day post written by the ex-Motley Crue drummer, and said he hoped his reply would mark an end to their public feud.
On Father's Day this past Sunday, Tommy Lee said he felt like he had “failed as a father” because his children “don’t know the value of things.” Refusing to accept all the blame for parental missteps, he added, “I love my boys, but they can be assholes too.”
That led Brandon to post a video, apparently of his dad sprawled on the ground after a fistfight they had earlier this year. In a separate post, Brandon told Tommy, “Remember what happened last time you said this shit? Night night.”
In a new Instagram post addressed to Tommy yesterday, Brandon said, “You post something for the world to see, saying that I’m a bad kid and my mom is a bad mother, what do you expect? Seriously, who’s he fkn adult here?”
He noted that his dad had never been “around enough to know what kind of person” he was and accepted that hurt feelings were in play. “Let’s just drop it dude," he said. "You're mad I didn’t say happy Father’s Day to you?? So what?! My birthday was on June 5th motherfucker … I didn’t hear shit from you … and I didn’t go telling the world what a letdown you are. Come on man. It’s time to move on. Let’s keep this private.”
He captioned the message with "Sorry for the noise everyone. Hopefully this is the end."
However, it was not the end. The next day, Tommy tweeted, "Rehab for son: $130,000 … Party for son’s 21st birthday last year: $40,000 … Medical bills after son knocks his father unconscious and uses 'alcoholism' as scapegoat: $10,000 … Son acting like a victim on social media on father’s day: Priceless."
In response, Brandon offered both a sincere thanks for the rehab - and an offer to return the favor for his father.
Brandon, the son of Tommy and actress Pamela Anderson, was born a year after the couple met and married in 1995; his younger brother Dylan was born in 1997. Anderson divorced Lee the followed year, though they got back together twice, the second reconciliation ending in 2008.
