Motley Crue rocker Tommy Lee, 55, has accused his son Brandon Lee, 21, of physically assaulting him. The drummer shared photos and videos of his alleged abuse on social media sites but has since taken them down. The photos, videos, and text were online long enough for media to get a hold of them and for the story to go viral.
Brandon Lee is the son of Tommy and Pamela Anderson. The couple also has a 20-year-old son named Dylan Jagger Lee. When Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee were married he had been sentenced to six months in an altercation that involved physically assaulting Anderson while she was holding the couple’s young son.
Now, some are calling the alleged assault by Brandon Lee against his father as karma or payback for what happened to his mother. Brandon Lee hasn’t spoken out about the incident.
The Blast confirmed that the police were called and involved and Tommy Lee was ultimately taken to a hospital where his injuries were observed and assessed. Authorities arrived at 10:49 and Tommy Lee was transported to the hospital at approximately 11:35 PT, Monday, March 5, 2018.
Tommy Lee uploaded a photo of his bloody and swollen lip to Instagram with the following caption before deleting the picture.
“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.”
He also tweeted the following message.
“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.”

Though it’s unclear what triggered the argument and subsequent altercation between the two The Blaze pointed out that Tommy Lee had earlier shared a tweet to Piers Morgan criticizing the portrayal of himself as an abuser in the recent interview with Pamela Anderson.
Response to Tommy Lee’s social media posts was mixed with very few offering sympathies or compassion to the musician. Instead, many criticized him for sharing information about the altercation while others said that this was to be expected. Others believed it was karma coming back at Tommy Lee.
Brandon Lee is currently under investigation for the alleged assault. It is unknown whether Lee acted in self-defense and if charges will be filed in the case.
