Earlier this week, Tommy Lee accused his son of assaulting him. He claimed that Brandon Thomas Lee punched him in the face in an unprovoked attack.
Though the alleged incident is said to have been brought on by Tommy's outrageous tweets about Brandon's mother, Tommy Lee is pressing charges and even seeking a restraining order.
Pamela Anderson is speaking out about the altercation between her ex and her adult son.
On Thursday, Pamela Anderson posted a statement about Tommy Lee, titled: "Alcoholism is the Devil."
She starts things off with a clarification:
"For the record. I have made NO comment anywhere to anyone before this -- beware of tabloid gossip."
We should always be on the lookout for fake statements.
"This is a matter of life and death. I am surreally calm -- I feel justice is at work. I am not frantic or 'as reported' -- devastated. I am hopeful -- this is not new to us."
Clearly, it was some false stories about her reaction that prompted her to speak out.
"I am staying in France for the moment. I have complete faith in Brandon and his team to resolve this unfortunate and sad situation regarding his father."
Despite the circumstances, she's speaking from a place of compassion.
"I pray Tommy gets the help he needs."
All things considered, that is very generous of her. It was Tommy's tweet that bashed her that started all of this.
"His actions are desperate and humiliating -- he is a disaster spinning out of control and he is not acting like a father."
"But this is nothing new. My sons have made every attempt to help him in recent months -- staying with him to make sure he’s ok."
Her unnecessarily handsome sons, Brandon Thomas and Dylan Jagger, are both adults. It sounds like they've both been trying to help their father with his struggle.
"Just by being present with him they were hoping he’d feel loved and act differently."
Pamela reveals that she had worried that something like this might happen.
"I feared things might escalate. But [I] knew this might be what it took to heal old wounds."
As compassionate as she is towards Tommy, she is solidly only Team Brandon.
"Him blaming his son or us for anything is delusional."
She says that he should really be thanking his sons.
"We have all tried to protect him and help him for too long. Hoping he’d look after himself better."
"I do not like to comment about this. But feel like it’s necessary because of Tommy’s ‘Trump style’ no thought out rampage on twitter and IG?"
Glad to know that we're not the only ones who thought of Trump when Tommy tweeted without thinking.
"This matter is ideally between just a father and a son -- And rehab if the stars align."
She won't have further contact with the father of her sons unless he cleans up his act.
"I will never talk to Tommy again before he is sober and in his right mind. Though he’s made attempts to contact me. I have blocked him."
That is somehow a lot more believable to many than Tommy's claim that she asks him "every day" to take her back.
She goes on to say that, sometimes, Tommy is simply impossible to talk to.
"It is impossible to reason with crazy. I’m sure the world can see the truth. I stand beside my son who acted out of self defense and was scared for his life."
We'd heard before that Brandon acted out of self defense.
"Nobody understands the lifetime of disappointment this man has brought our family. Consistently the centre of sadness, drama and confusion."
It sounds like there are some major issues at play aside from alcoholism.
"Jealous of his sons talent and beauty from the day they were born."
Pamela Anderson is no psychologist, but she has some diagnoses in mind.
"He is sick. The definition of narcissist/sociopath."
Pamela levels an accusation at Tommy's fiancee, Brittany Furlan.
"His fiancee keeps him drunk. This is what he wants -- someone to behave badly with."
Brittany is much younger and hotter than Tommy, but we're not sure that she's to blame for all of this.
"It’s terrible and unfortunately he has made this private matter very public."
Tommy also accused his son of fleeing from the police, though the police have not made any such claim.
"I have always tried only to set record straight. Trying to paint him as not a bad guy. Just one who is human and made mistakes."
This is a man who spent half a year behind bars for allegedly kicking her during their marriage while she held her young son. She's ... perhaps being too kind, here.
"He still cannot handle the guilt about his abusive behavior and has never taken responsibility for what he has done. Let’s hope this will be his saving grace."
She hopes that this will be a wake-up call.
"I can only pray for him. And protect my sons. Who also fiercely protect me."
"Brandon has asked me to stay in France and not come home right now."
So that's why she hasn't flown out, as was likely her first instinct. Brandon's an adult and probably wants to spare his mother as much as possible.
"He is happy and content that I am safe and loved where I am at -- He has invaluable support and has everything under control."
She cannot stop singing the praises of her son.
"His heart amazes me. He still does not want to see his dad in Jail. He just wants him to get sober."
That's very generous of him.
"He was putting together an Intervention (along with friends and people Tommy works with and admired). So that whatever is left of his life can be healthy and peaceful and maybe he will be a healthy part of their lives one day."
It sounds like Brandon has inherited his mother's compassionate nature.
"Maybe a positive part of our future grandkids life. Brandon has risked everything to save his father. He takes his career very seriously. He does not touch alcohol or drugs - (he understands his genetics) and is an example to many."
She continues to praise Brandon.
"He is a tremendous talent that will show the world. But he has put all on hold for dealing with this."
And his heart's in the right place.
"His family - his brother and our family is his priority."
This is where Pamela's statement could potentially become problematic.
"Believe me. He punched him in the nose for all of us who he has hurt. Now, Tommy feels humiliated -- and is attempting to destroy his own son."
The line about Brandon's motives for the punch could come back to bite her son if there's an assault trial. Everyone hopes that it won't come to that.
"This is the Devil - This is the disease of alcoholism."
That's some serious family drama, folks.
