TOMMY LEE AND PAMELA ANDERSON ARE BACK TOGETHER:
June 12, 2008
Rolling Stone Magazine visited Motley Crue in their Hollywood rehearsal studio yesterday as they prepped for their summer CrueFest tour. Yes, they rocked, and we’ll have a full report in the next issue of Rolling Stone, but because you’re our pals, we thought you’d want to know one bit of news right away:
“Pamela and the kids have moved in with me,” said a beaming Tommy Lee (speaking, of course, of his ex-wife and sex-tape costar Pamela Anderson and their two sons, Brandon and Dylan). “It’s awesome, man. It’s definitely working. You can tell on the kids’ faces — they’re happy when we’re together.”
Let’s hope those crazy lovebirds keep it together this time. As Lee told us, “We’ve only given it a try 800 times — 801, here we go.”
In related news, Motley Crue has kick-started legal action against another former manager.
The “Shout at the Devil” purveyors have filed a lawsuit against Burt Stein and his companies B Entertainment and Gold Mountain Entertainment, alleging the companies screwed the band out of large sums of money by putting the manager’s interests ahead of the Crue.
The suit, filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court and a copy of which was obtained by TMZ, claims Stein, who also represents one of the individual bandmembers, “stalled and obstructed” talks Motley Crue had with various music-industry folk about recording a new album and hitting the road in 2008.
Among the other allegations, Stein also supposedly scheduled appearances and activities for one of the bandmembers that conflicted with the group’s plans to record a new album and hit the road in 2008. He interfered with a separate deal the headbangers secured with a major promoter to headline a 2008 tour by scheduling separate events when the promoter was named as the “exclusive provider” of all Crue activities on the date of the concerts.
Last but not least, Motley Crue accused the manager of misrepresenting the position of a bandmember and refusing to fulfill his fiduciary duties until his own demands were met.
Consequently, Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx entered into a new agreement with a different management company to rep them, terminating their relationship with Stein.
Their complaint seeks a court declaration regarding both parties rights and duties and specifying that their old business partner has no right to receive any commissions from the quartet. The Crue also asked for unspecified damages.
Reps for Stein and Motley Crue could not be reached for comment.
As it happened, Sixx and Mars, the band’s respective bassist and guitarist, just settled a separate $20 million suit last month against Carl Stubner, a one-time comanager of the band.
The rockers alleged he became so involved in Lee’s career that he damaged the band and drummer’s heavy metal cred by having the latter appear on Rock Star: Supernova and Tommy Lee Goes to College, which took him away from rehearsals, recording and touring with the Crue.
