We haven’t heard that much about former Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee lately, but he’s in the news once again, and it’s not about music this time. In a since-deleted Instagram post the 55 year-old drummer showed a picture of himself with a bloody lip, stating that he was attacked by his 21 year-old son Brandon on Monday.
“My fiance and I were in bed when my son busted into the room and assaulted me,” he said on Twitter. “I asked him to leave the house and he knocked me unconscious. He ran away from the police. THAT’S the truth.”
TMZ states sources close to the younger Lee saying that Tommy Lee was drunk and Brandon bruised his father’s lip acting in self defense. Police were called to the house, and Tommy was briefly taken to a hospital, but no charges were filed. This comes shortly after Lee’s ex-wife Pamela Anderson Lee, detailed that their marriage ended after he abused her. Lee didn’t deny that happened, but angrily tweeted at Piers Morgan for bringing up the past.
