The public feud between Tommy Lee and his son Brandon Lee continued on Monday.
A day after the 22-year-old shared a video of his father seemingly passed out on the ground wearing just a black t-shirt and underwear, Tommy opened up about their estranged relationship on social media — claiming that he was actually knocked unconscious in his son’s post and alleging that Brandon was the one with the substance abuse problem.
“Rehab for son: $130,000, Party for son’s 21st birthday last year: $40,000,” the Mötley Crüe rocker wrote on Twitter and Instagram. “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.”
“I’m out [mic] drop!” he added in the post.
A rep for Brandon declined to comment on Tommy’s claims, though Brandon himself responded on Instagram Tuesday afternoon.
“I thank my Dad for paying for my treatment. It’s the best thing he’s ever done for me,” he wrote. “Today I am almost two years sober. Every day that goes by I feel ever more grateful. My clear mind has allowed me to do a lot with this time. So much so that I would like to offer to pay for his treatment.”
Tommy and Brandon’s father/son relationship has long been on rocky terms, stemming back to March when an alleged physical altercation between the two left the rocker with a bloody lip.
On Sunday, the drama appeared to be reignited when Tommy shared an Instagram post in honor of Father’s Day, posting one photo of him with his own father and a throwback picture of him with one of his sons (He and ex Pamela Anderson are also parents to son Dylan Jagger, 20).
“Happy Father’s Day fellas! I’m not gonna sit here and post some fluffed up bulls— for the public to read…. I’m gonna be honest- Being a father ain’t easy!” he wrote. “I’m so tired of the fake s— I keep seeing all over IG… let’s get real: It’s a rollercoaster ok?”
Continued Tommy, “Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things.” He claimed, “If they break something, they don’t care because they know they’ll just get a new one, if they hurt someone, they don’t care because so many people tell them it’s OK. I never wanted this for my kids. I know I’m not fully to blame, because their mom has a lot to do with it, enabling bad behavior and buying them things when they weren’t good, but I guess I hoped at the end of the day they would end up kind.”
“I love them dearly, don’t get me wrong, but man, sometimes it’s really tough to watch your kids grow up without those morals,” he added. “Nothing can really prepare you for fatherhood …. I love my boys but they can be assh—- too…and that’s the truth (Cue Honest Guy music).”
Brandon replied by sharing a screenshot of his dad’s post on his own Instagram account, claiming he was an absent father.
“Remember what happened last time you said this s—? night night ]]>😴🏼😴😴
