Yesterday, Heather Locklear had an extremely messy Father’s Day with her parents. On the exact same day, not very far away, her ex-husband Tommy Lee was also celebrating Father’s Day by dragging members of his family into massive amounts of drama. Although to be fair, Tommy Lee’s Father’s Day didn’t end with the cops being called. No, his fight played out on social media instead.
Tommy Lee’s relationship with his two adult sons Brandon and Dylan Lee has been pretty strained for the past few years, especially with Brandon, who appears to hold the most hatred of his dad. Back in March, Brandon allegedly punched his dad in the face after Tommy tweeted something disparaging about his mom Pamela Anderson. Tommy then threatened to get a restraining order against his 22-year-old son, while Brandon blamed the whole thing on Tommy’s alleged battle with booze. Nothing really ever came of their fight. But just because no one got arrested or restrained doesn’t mean they’ve buried the hatchet.
Entertainment Tonight says this happened after Tommy posted the following pics in honor of Father’s Day, with a barely-subtle caption about how his kids didn’t turn out how he hoped they would.
“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.”
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! I’m so tired of the fake shit I keep seeing all over IG… let’s get real: It’s a rollercoaster 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)
Brandon shot back by re-posting Tommy’s caption with some commentary of his own and threatening to beat his dad again, saying:
“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 followed that up with a video of his dad knocked out on the floor after Brandon allegedly punched him in the face back in March. He pulled that down, but ET Canada aired it.
He replaced it with another Instagram post begging his dad to stop airing their drama in public. Ah, I see – Brandon obviously forgot that Instagram wasn’t an app that sent a direct text message to someone.
Tommy hasn’t said anything back to Brandon on Instagram or on Twitter. Maybe Tommy took Brandon’s advice and has decided to keep things private? Hahahahahaha oh wow, that’s a good one. As if Tommy and Brandon would move this to the privacy of a therapist’s office. In all honesty, I would not be surprised if “private” was actually an acronym for “Promise of Repeated Incidents of Verbal Accusations Told to Everyone.”
