Tommy Lee and his son Brandon are now battling it out online.
In his first interview since he allegedly knocked his father out cold, Brandon Lee put the blame for the incident squarely on Tommy’s drinking.
“I’m devastated at the events of the last several days that have been a result of my father’s alcoholism,” Brandon told PEOPLE.
“I’ve worked tirelessly organizing an intervention and it’s incredibly upsetting that it never came to fruition,” he continued. “I wanted my dad’s hopeful sobriety and recovery to be a private family matter but, as a result of his accusations on social media, I feel forced to speak out. I have and will continue to cooperate with law enforcement as needed. I love my father and just want to see him sober, happy and healthy.”
Tommy read the interview and shot back on Twitter, writing, “LMAAAO!!!! I’m happier than I’ve been in my entire life. I have a few drinks here & there because I’m fuckin retired and enjoying my life. I worked 30+ fuckin years I deserve it. You didn’t arrange any intervention, you barely spoke to me while u were here. Just coverin ur ass!!”
According to the 911 call, Brittany Furlan, Lee’s fiancée, told dispatchers the two men had been in a fight and that Tommy was unconscious. “He’s like totally out,” she says at one point. “Like a light.”
The fiancée made reference to Brandon’s guns early in the call, saying he keeps guns in his bedroom, but she didn’t “know if he has them loaded.”
