David Layde By David Layde - March 8, 2018

Drummer's son Brandon Lee, says altercation was because of 'father's alcoholism'. Mötley Crüe drummer, Tommy Lee , has since quit social media after an incident with his son earlier this week.

According to reports, Police responded to an incident at Tommy Lee's home in Calabasas, California following an altercation with his son Brandon Lee (21). Tommy Lee was taken to hospital for minor injuries, no arrests were made.

Brandon Lee claims he was acting in self defense while also defending his mother Pamela Andersons' honour. Tommy Lee responded on twitter,

'My fiancée 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'.

Brandon has since described himself as 'devastated', maintaining that the 'events of the last several days… have been a result of my father’s alcoholism'. Brandon added that he was attempting to stage an intervention in a bid to stop his father from drinking,

'I’ve worked tirelessly organising an intervention and it’s incredibly upsetting that it never came to fruition, I wanted my dad’s hopeful sobriety and recovery to be a private family matter but, as a result of his accusations on social media, I feel forced to speak out.'

In response to Brandon’s statement, Lee tweeted that he was 'happier than I’ve been in my entire life. I have a few drinks here and there because I’m fu*kin retired and enjoying my life,' Lee continued, 'I worked 30+ fuc*in years I deserve it. You didn’t arrange any intervention, you barely spoke to me while u were here. Just coverin ur ass!!'

Lee later added that he was getting off Twitter, saying that he didn’t want to read any more 'lies'. Wonder how long before he comes back? Bless.
