The Reason Tommy Lee Slammed Howard Stern
Tommy Lee reached international fame as Mötley Crüe’s drummer, but he also built a certain reputation with his personal life. The band members became prominent figures of the rock and metal scene around 1983 following Mötley Crüe’s international success. Such popularity encouraged the musicians to lead a rock and roll lifestyle fueled by drugs, alcohol, and wild parties.
Unfortunately, this kind of lifestyle led to various scandals and near-death experiences, and they ultimately got the nickname, the ‘world’s most notorious rock band.’ Tommy Lee was one of the most mischievous ones, and his name was often on the headlines, mainly considering his complicated relationships with his partners.
Tommy Lee And Heather Locklear’s Relationship
Tommy Lee had achieved worldwide fame when he met the Hollywood actress Heather Locklear in 1985. It was love at first sight, and the couple pursued a passionate relationship even though many people considered them an odd couple. After all, Heather was American’s sweetheart, and Tommy was Mötley Crüe’s crazy drummer. A few months later, Lee proposed to the actress, and they tied the knot on May 10, 1986.
However, the couple decided to get a divorce in 1993. Both Lee and Locklear moved on shortly afterwards as they fell in love and got remarried. Tommy Lee married Playboy star Pamela Anderson in 1995, just four days after meeting each other, while Heather Locklear and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora tied the knot in 1994. Unfortunately, her happiness couldn’t last long, and this was the beginning of Locklear’s problems.
The Story Of The Feud Between Tommy Lee And Howard Stern
After her divorce, Heather Locklear started struggling with severe depression and anxiety, and some claimed she attempted suicide. Thus, she entered a medical facility to focus on her mental wellbeing. However, the TV star struggled with her mental health and experienced legal troubles. In 2018, Locklear was arrested because of domestic violence and battery against a police officer.
It’s been reported that Locklear allegedly kicked three sheriff deputies and threatened to shoot them if they ever entered her house again. She was later arrested and accused of two misdemeanor counts of battery. After being released on bail, Locklear was taken to the hospital due to an overdose.
During these challenging times, radio and television personality Howard Stern shared his opinions about the actress and said that her ex-husbands, Tommy Lee and Richie Sambora, drove her crazy. Following this, Tommy Lee responded to Stern’s statement through his Twitter account.
The Mötley Crüe drummer called Stern the ‘Queen of media’ and stressed that they broke up 24 years ago. Lee said that he couldn’t believe Stern could blame him for the actress’ mental health issues and legal troubles. Tommy Lee advised Stern to wish her well instead of targeting her ex-husbands.
Stern shared his ideas saying:
“You know what drove this woman crazy? She was married to Tommy Lee and Richie Sambora… They made her f*cking insane.”
“Queen of media! How dare you blame me for Heather’s recent troubles! That was like 24 years ago you idiot! You should be wishing her well and not bashing me f*ckhead! What is wrong with you? I normally don’t respond to this stuff… F*cking BS!”
