Brandon & Dylan Talk Sex, Drugs, and Julian Assange

image host

It was the paparrazi who first tipped off Brandon Thomas Lee and Dylan Jagger Lee to the fact that their family might not be normal. As the only children of ’90s royalty—Baywatch’s Pamela Anderson and Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee—Brandon, 23, and Dylan, 21, were raised in Malibu but sent to boarding school on Vancouver Island, far from the flashing lights of Hollywood. The Brothers Lee are now back in the City of Angels and ready for their close-ups. With countless other ambitious entertainers “giving it 110 percent,” Brandon (an actor who appears on the reboot season of The Hills) and Dylan (one-half of the electro duo Midnight Kids) know that their family name can only get them through the door. They invited Interview’s Thom Bettridge into their six-bedroom joint bachelor pad in Malibu to discuss sex, drugs, and, yes, Julian Assange.

———

THOM BETTRIDGE: I really want to talk to you about how you were both raised. What do you think is unique about growing up in L.A.?

BRANDON THOMAS LEE: Life just happens at such an accelerated pace. Everything around you is happening faster. People are losing their virginity five years younger than everywhere else in America. People are getting involved in drugs at a much younger age. When kids in L.A. are 18 or 19, they’re like a bunch of 40-year-olds who have already seen everything. It’s almost like they’re war veterans.

DYLAN JAGGER LEE: Brandon and I went to high school in Canada, so we came back to see our friends in completely different situations than when we left them. L.A. can be amazing, but it can also be the worst. A lot of people think it’s, like, be an actor, be a musician, be a model, or you’re nothing. It’s a pretty dog-eat-dog world.

BETTRIDGE: When did you first realize that you have famous parents?

BRANDON: I have the funniest fucking story about that. The normal thing to do as a parent is, of course, to make your kids feel like everything is normal and fine. I remember one day asking my mom, “Hey, why does everybody take photos of us?” And she said, “Oh, they do that to everybody.” Then, I remember being with one of my friends’ families when I was, like, 10, and we walked into dinner somewhere, and I said to them, “Hey, why does nobody take photos of you guys?”

DYLAN: Brandon was always the test dummy for me. I learned from all of his mistakes.

BETTRIDGE: Dylan, how did your dad respond when you started getting into music? Is he into non-rock music?

DYLAN: My dad loves all music, but I used to hate music back in the day. I didn’t want to make music. I didn’t want to be an actor. I didn’t want to do anything. Then I fell in love with it.

BETTRIDGE: I’ve been seeing a lot of people rocking Mötley Crüe t-shirts recently—wearing metal merch in general. Do you have your own stash at home?

BRANDON: I don’t have any of that shit.

DYLAN: I have never listened to rock music in my entire life.

BETTRIDGE: Really?

DYLAN: Obviously, we would go to the shows. I used to fall asleep to “Shout at the Devil.”

BRANDON: There are lots of try-hard celebrities out there running around in Iron Maiden shirts. I’m like, “Name one Iron Maiden song, please.” As Dylan said, we used to fall asleep to that shit. You’re not fooling anyone with the Rolling Stones or the Clash shirt 5,000 other people have.

BETTRIDGE: It’s very Urban Outfitters.

DYLAN: Very.

BETTRIDGE: Brandon, what made you decide to do The Hills?

BRANDON: I’ve had a pretty crazy life, and I spent the majority of it hiding from the spotlight, trying to be a normal kid. I used to resent all of this. But I’ve come to a point in my life where I want to show people what I’m truly like. There are a lot of misconceptions about the way we were raised—that we’re spoiled, or that we were given everything. But our friends can back this up: Dylan and I haven’t taken a dollar from our parents since we were in high school. We’ve been working our asses off to buy a house, buy a car, and pay for music equipment and acting lessons. It feels better to do it ourselves.

BETTRIDGE: How is it going through this acting journey and this sobriety journey at the same time?

BRANDON: Being sober is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Three years ago, I was in one of the darkest spots of my entire life. I didn’t want to leave my apartment. I couldn’t do anything. Ever since I got sober, I just feel like everything’s gotten better for me. I’ve become a better actor. I’ve become a better worker. I’ve become a better person. I’m not gonna lie, in L.A. it’s really fucking hard to avoid temptation. Girls. Money. This and that. But my career has become so important to me that partying isn’t worth it anymore.

BETTRIDGE: You grew up surrounded by tons of famous people. Has anyone given you good advice about surviving the rat race?

DYLAN: Someone once told me, “There are thousands of other people giving 110 percent. How can you do more than that?”

BETTRIDGE: What about your mom’s friend Julian Assange? Have you ever met him?

DYLAN: Never.

BRANDON: You know what? I remember being in London, and he was FaceTiming with my mom, talking about some shit. I don’t know, man. That shit’s crazy to me. This little Pamela Anderson from Ladysmith, Canada, became a Playboy model, and now she is mingling with heads of state and the most wanted people in the fucking world.

BETTRIDGE: Have you talked to her about it?

BRANDON: Yes, and it’s so funny. Everyone thinks that she and Julian are dating or whatever. The world’s so crazy like that. She’s definitely got this savior complex—she’s a protector of the beaten down and the underdogs. If you are facing adversity, my mom is going to stand up for you no matter what.

Pamela Anderson enjoys a romantic stroll

They rekindled their on-off romance in March this year.

And Pamela Anderson looked happier than ever with her beau Adil Rami, 33, as they took a stroll in Malibu, California on Sunday.

The former Baywatch actress, 52, cut a chic figure as she donned a sleek black dress during their low-key outing.

The form-fitting black number featured a pleated skirt and a pleated overlay, which Pamela paired with black ballet pumps and a black handbag.

Allowing her natural beauty to shine through, Pamela ditched her make-up for the day, while her blonde locks were left to freely hang on her shoulders.

Emulating his partner’s laid back look, sportsman Adil donned a white T-shirt which featured a black skeleton motif on the front.

He paired this with ripped, black skinny jeans, black sunglasses and tan boots.

The couple looked happy and relaxed in each other’s company as they went went about their day in the Californian city.

Pamela in particularly looked smitten with her beau as she was barely able to keep the smile off her face.

Pamela and the athlete reportedly got back together in March, six months after they reportedly split.

According to TMZ, the blonde bombshell and the Marseille ace had ‘been back together for several weeks’, shortly after breaking up when Adil brought up the topic of marriage.

Despite their reconciliation, sources claimed the footballer is ‘cutting Pam off from her friends and family’, and alleged his ‘partying’ lifestyle ‘isn’t for her anymore’.

The iconic pin-up girl, who moved to France to live with her beau during the early stages of their romance, previously admitted she didn’t expect their love to last.

In an interview with the Sun, blonde bombshell Pamela said: ‘Let’s be in love for as long as we are in love and if there is ever one day, you look at me and go “ugh”, well, I can always go and live in another country.’

Gushing over their relationship, she shared: ‘He is fantastic. I love him, of course. You have to be very brave and enjoy things.

‘I care about him a lot and we get along. Who knows how long this world is going to last with the way it is going. You might as well enjoy your life.’

Anderson is mother to two sons, Brandon, 22, and Dylan, 21, with ex-husband Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.

She was subsequently married to Kid Rock and Rick Salomon.

Pamela attends charity event in LA

She’s a blonde bombshell made famous for starring in the pages of Playboy.

And Pamela Anderson was the focus of the camera’s gaze once more as she attended the unveiling of her photograph at the Maddox Gallery in LA on Friday.

The 51-year-old Baywatch star showed off her incredible figure in a little black dress which skimmed her thighs and featured gold button details while she was joined by equally-glamorous heiress Petra Ecclestone, 30.

Pamela added height to her frame with a pair of sleek black stilettos which accentuated her lithe pins.

The Hollywood star toted an envy-inducing mini handbag as she attended the charity launch with photographer David Yarrow.

Wearing her blonde locks tousled, Pamela opted for a dramatic cat eye, fluttering lashes and a lick of pink lipstick.

Also at the event was Petra, who looked stylish in a tailored white jumpsuit which she teamed with a glitzy gold YSL bag.

Fine art photographer and fellow animal activist David photographed Pamela on a shoot in Marseilles in a stunning black and white photo.

The event included a charity auction, with all proceeds going to the Pamela Anderson Foundation, which supports animal rights, environmental issues and human rights.

Pamela has been vocal about human rights issues of late, and has openly spoken in support of her friend WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange – who remains in custody in London after he was taken out of the city’s Ecuadorean Embassy in April.

Assange, 47, is slated to serve 50 weeks in custody amid a bail jumping violation, and remains accused of an Espionage Act violation in the U.S. – where Anderson said she thinks he will never be extradited.

‘He’s not coming to the U.S.,’ she told photographers at the airport. ‘No, he shouldn’t come to the U.S. … he’ll end up dead.’

Meanwhile, the Canadian-American stunner has been very loved up with her 33-year-old boyfriend Adil Rami.

The Playboy star has been linked to Rami since 2017, with the pair being on-again and off-again.

Anderson’s friends are not fans of Rami, with insiders telling TMZ that Pam has outgrown the fast-paced club-hopping lifestyle Rami enjoys.

Friends said that Rami has been known to sequester Anderson from her family and friends, according to the outlet.

Anderson is mother to two sons, Brandon, 22, and Dylan, 21, with ex-husband Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. She was subsequently married to Kid Rock and Rick Salomon.
