Third Eye Blind’s Stephan Jenkins has responded to a beef between himself and Mötley Crüe, depicted in the new show Pam & Tommy. He also cleared up rumors, stating he has seen Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson’s sex tape.
Stephan Jenkins claims the scene to be fictional
In the fifth episode of the new Hulu show, Tommy Lee (played by Sebastian Stan) was seen walking into a studio before being alerted that the larger Studio A is being used by Jenkins’ band, and that the Crüe are demoted to Studio B. They had an exchange of words.
Speaking to Variety, Jenkins said the scene is entirely fictional and he has never met Tommy Lee or been in the same studio as Mötley Crüe.
“Mötley Crüe and I’ve never been in the same studio,” he said. “I recorded my whole first album in Northern California. So we were across the state from each other at the very least.”
He added: “I had never, in fact, listened to Mötley Crüe. I never even heard them. I actually saw Tommy Lee’s penis before I ever heard their band. I was like, ‘Well, good on ya, Tommy. Well done, lad.’ I literally had never heard them. But I somehow saw the sex tape. I’d also never seen ‘Baywatch.’ So I had never seen Pam or Tommy. That was my first introduction to them.”
Pam & Tommy executive producer Rob Siegel went on to discuss the decision to include the scene and believed that it was ‘perfect’. He said: “I felt like that was the perfect band [for the scene]. I did a little quick Google search, what label was Mötley Crüe on? Elektra. Who else was on Elektra? Third Eye Blind. The timing was perfect. In 1996 they’re working on their debut album. So the scene is fictional, but I like to think it absolutely could have happened!”
