Father’s Day is usually a time for kids and their fathers to reconnect and enjoy time with one another — but not if you’re Brandon and Tommy Lee.
According to The Daily Mail, Tommy Lee, who has two children from his marriage to Pamela Anderson, is far from what one would call a loving dad.
While most fathers took to their Instagram pages to celebrate their own fathers, and to thank their children for making them fathers, the former Motley Crue drummer took to his Instagram page to tell his millions of fans that, while he loved his father and appreciated all the lessons he taught him, his two sons, Brandon and Dylan, were “a–holes.”
That, obviously, didn’t sit well with Brandon, who took to Instagram to share a less-than-complimentary post of his own about Daddy Dearest.
Brandon first posted a video of Tommy Lee passed out in his underwear, with the caption “looking a little sleepy there, Tommy.”
He then responded directly to his father’s Instagram tirade with a reflection of his own.
“You’ve got to show up to be a dad, big guy,” wrote Brandon. “If you think we’re so bad (which I can assure you we are not) then you should have showed up to a few more BDays and baseball games. Someone like you couldn’t raise a man like me.”
He then closed out his reflection with a warning to Tommy Lee to knock it off, or get knocked out again.
Brandon, of course, is referring to the much-publicized altercation between himself and his father, which happened in March of this year. Brandon punched his father in the face, giving him a swollen lip, and knocking his lights out.
At that time, the Los Angeles County District Attorney rejected a criminal case against Brandon Lee because Tommy Lee stopped cooperating, despite initially promising to cooperate.
Initially, according to Tommy, the two came to blows because Tommy Lee got upset that Pamela Anderson talked about his 1998 arrest and incarceration for assault in an interview with Piers Morgan.
Tommy snarled on Twitter that Pamela “calls him every day” and “begs for him to come back.”
Brandon, however, claims that he and his father got into the fight because his father is an alcoholic.
There was some sign of reconciliation between the two, earlier in the year — with Brandon saying that he “loves his father,” in reference to Tommy Lee — but thanks to this incident, that all seems to be a thing of the past, sadly.
