TMZ recently asked Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler about former Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee being punched by his 21-year old son Brandon. Brandon and his mother Pamela Anderson have claimed Lee is dealing with alcoholism, and that it is a ‘life and death situation.’ Lee has denied that he is dealing with alcoholism, and sought a restraining order against his son.
Tyler said, “The same old, same old, huh? Tommy baby, you have have to read my book! You have to read my book brother!”
Tyler then held up the book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson.
“This is so awful,” Tommy’s girlfriend Brittany Furlan told Page Six via email Thursday night. “Every time a friend calls, I encourage him to go see them, to hang out. HE decides what he wants to do. Not me. We just went to Cabo with some friends.”
Furlan, who rose to fame on Vine, continued, “When people first fall in love they tend to spend a lot of time together. That’s just how it is. It is Tommy who makes his own decisions, I don’t tell him what to do. He’s a grown man.”
Things reportedly got physical between Tommy and Brandon — allegedly leaving the Mötley Crüe drummer with a fat lip — after Tommy publicly blasted Anderson’s recent interview about his past spousal abuse. Anderson and Brandon both claim Tommy has a problem with alcohol, but Tommy countered to TMZ on Thursday: “Do I drink? Yes. Do I drink more than the average Joe? Yes. Have I ever hurt my sons or acted out of turn with them because of my drinking? No. My fiancée barely drinks. We don’t do any hard drugs, I haven’t in years.”
Furlan, telling Page Six that she got Tommy into therapy, called the entire situation “sad and I’m very hurt that I’m being blamed when I’ve only ever tried to help,” adding, “I love Tommy, have always only wanted the best for him, I am wishing peace for all involved.”
Tommy and Furlan announced their engagement in February. They have been linked since last year.
