Mötley Crüe rocker Tommy Lee and his 22-year-old son Brandon Lee didn’t set aside their tension for Father’s Day.
Months after an alleged physical altercation between the two left the rocker with a bloody lip, Tommy shared a candid Instagram post in honor of the holiday including two photos: one of the musician with his own father and a throwback picture with one of his sons. (He and ex Pamela Anderson are also parents to son Dylan Jagger, 20.)
“Happy Father’s Day fellas! I’m not gonna sit here and post some fluffed up bulls— for the public to read…. I’m gonna be honest- Being a father ain’t easy!” he wrote. “I’m so tired of the fake s— I keep seeing all over IG… let’s get real: It’s a rollercoaster ok?”
The 55-year-old drummer claimed that he wanted to instill the respect for others and material possessions that his own dad taught him into his own children.
“Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things,” he claimed. “If they break something, they don’t care because they know they’ll just get a new one, if they hurt someone, they don’t care because so many people tell them it’s OK. I never wanted this for my kids. I know I’m not fully to blame, because their mom has a lot to do with it, enabling bad behavior and buying them things when they weren’t good, but I guess I hoped at the end of the day they would end up kind.”

He added, “I love them dearly, don’t get me wrong, but man, sometimes it’s really tough to watch your kids grow up without those morals. Nothing can really prepare you for fatherhood …. I love my boys but they can be a——- too…and that’s the truth (Cue Honest Guy music).”
Brandon replied by sharing a screenshot of his dad’s post on his own Instagram account, claiming he was an absent father.
“Remember what happened last time you said this s—? ? night night ?” said Brandon. “You gotta show up to be a Dad big guy. If you think we’re so bad (which I can assure you we are not) then you should have showed up to a few more BDays and baseball games. Someone like you couldn’t raise a man like me.”
He continued, “Once again painting our family in a negative light. Who the f— are you? Just move on dude… WE ALL HAVE. ✌?or I’ll put you right back to f—— sleep ?”
Brandon then posted a video that appeared to show Tommy passed out on the ground wearing just a black t-shirt and underwear.
“Look a little sleepy there Tommy. ?” Brandon captioned the post.

One day after the alleged March scuffle between the father and son, Tommy posted (and quickly deleted) a selfie of his swollen lips on Instagram captioned, “My heart is broken. You can give your kids everything they could ever want in their entire lives and they can still turn against you. Good job Brandon. Great son!”
Representatives for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office, who arrived on the scene shortly after the incident, previously told PEOPLE the pair had been arguing about a series of disparaging tweets and photos Lee had written about Anderson, following an interview where the 50-year-old discussed physical abuse she claimed to have endured from her ex during their relationship.
The case was dismissed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office in April.
Brandon released an exclusive statement to PEOPLE at the time of the fight, in which he claimed his father is battling alcoholism and that he had worked “tirelessly organizing an intervention.”
“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,” Brandon said in a statement provided by his rep, Teal Cannaday.
Lee denied the allegations the same day, tweeting: “I’m happier than I’ve been in my entire life. I have a few drinks here & there because I’m f—in’ retired and enjoying my life. I worked 30+ f—in’ years I deserve it. You didn’t arrange any intervention, you barely spoke to me while u were here.”
In a lengthy statement titled “Alcoholism is the Devil” which was shared on her website, Anderson previously called her ex “a disaster spinning out of control,” adding that she stood “beside my son who acted out of self-defense and was scared for his life.”
