Tommy Lee is pressing charges against his son after he allegedly knocked him out and refused to apologize. 

TMZ originally reported Brandon Thomas Lee brawled with his rock star father after Tommy posted disparaging comments about Brandon’s mother, Pamela Anderson, on social media.

In an interview with Piers Morgan, the Baywatch beauty discussed the incident that led to their divorce in 1998. The Mötley Crüe drummer assaulted her and subsequently plead no contest to corporal injury to spouse.

Following the interview, Tommy tweeted the following: 

“Think she’d find something new to discuss instead of rehashing old shit but I guess she has nothing else going on & needs attention. Signed, ‘The abuser’ (who she texts everyday & asks for me back).”  

This prompted the father and son’s altercation, which rendered Tommy unconscious with a swollen lip.

He tweeted that Brandon instigated the fight. 

“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.”

But according to TMZ, Brandon claims that he acted in self-defense after his drunken father lunged at him. Sources added that the 21-year-old doesn’t touch booze and is living with his dad part-time to help him stay sober.

TMZ now reports that Tommy will press charges against Brandon, who is currently a person of interest in a battery investigation. 

In the wake of the turmoil surrounding his family, the hair metal legend announced that he’s staying off social media because he “can’t read anymore lies.” 

Hopefully a civil conclusion to this messy situation is reached.
