LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Tommy Lee has addressed rumors of his altercation with Kid Rock at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards last Sunday.
In a post on TommyLee.TV, Lee branded Rock, “Kid Pebble,” following the Sunday night incident during which the most recent Mr. Pam Anderson punched Lee.
Lee wrote he was having a “great time” with his pal, magician Criss Angel, and said Rock attacked him after he went over to say “hello” to Diddy, who was sitting with the woman Lee calls “Miss HOT ” — “Transformers” actress Megan Fox.
“So I get a tap on the shoulder from Kid Pebble . . . I stand up and embrace him with a semi hug and say ‘Hey dude, what up?’” Lee wrote. “He punches me in the face . . . Well if ya’ wanna call it that!? More like a bitch slap! Wuss.”
Lee says he attempted to retaliate against Rock who he also branded a “jealous country bumpkin,” and before he was able to, he was taken out by security guards.
Lee offered an apology to Alicia Keys, who was performing “Freedom ‘90” during the altercation, and to MTV for, “The disrespectful bull*** caused by a piece of **** called Kid Pebble.”
Rock was charged with misdemeanor battery following the incident. He will be required to return to Vegas to answer the charge in court, at a later date.
