Tommy Lee, “Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things”
Former Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee posted the following Father’s Day message:
Tommy Lee: “Happy Father’s Day fellas! I’m not gonna sit here and post some fluffed up bullshit for the public to read…. I’m gonna be honest- Being a father ain’t easy! It’s a roller coaster ok? My father taught me to respect everyone and everything and to take care of those that I loved. He taught me to appreciate my possessions, and to be grateful for the things I was given. I’ve fucked up at times but I’ve always bounced back. When I had a child, my first child, I wanted to instill those same virtues into him. Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things. 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. Nothing can really prepare you for fatherhood …. I love my boys but they can be assholes too…and that’s the truth (Cue Honest Guy music)”
Soon after Tommy’s post, his son Brandon responded:
Brandon Lee: “Remember what happened last time you said this shit? ? night night ? You gotta show up to be a Dad big guy. 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. Once again painting our family in a negative light. Who the fuck are you? Just move on dude… WE ALL HAVE. ✌?or I’ll put you right back to fuckin sleep ?”
Brandon quickly followed up his post with a video showing his father laid out, unconscious on the floor, captioned “Look a little sleepy there Tommy. ?.” Appearing to have been filmed by Brandon, it also shows Tommy’s fiancee, Brittany Furlan, who is trying to get the drummer’s son to stop filming. The clip is thought to have been shot during the highly publicized March 2018 altercation between Tommy and Brandon. Watch it below.
