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 Reacts to Brandon Joining ‘The Hills’ Cast

Sharing her support! Pamela Anderson’s son, Brandon Thomas Lee, is heading for reality television after signing onto MTV’s The Hills revival — and his mom stands by his decision.

“It’s his journey,” the Baywatch alum, 51, told Us Weekly exclusively on Friday, June 7, at the Maddox Gallery Los Angeles’ world premiere unveiling of a photograph of her by David Yarrow and a silent auction to benefit The Pamela Anderson Foundation. “He’s invincible. Brandon can do anything. People tell him, ‘You shouldn’t do this,’ but he’s such a talented actor. … He’s on his journey and he’s going to have a great time and I’m sure it’s going to be very, very entertaining because he is so funny.”

The model added: “He’s so wild and that’s what I love about him. … And he’s sober. He doesn’t drink and he has such a great time. For some people, [drinking] actually takes your personality away.”

Anderson went on to say that her son, 23, who she shares with her ex-husband Tommy Lee, is going to be “fun to watch” on the show.

When it comes to the actress’ own projects, she told Us that Brandon and his younger brother, Dylan, always back her decisions. “They support everything I do,” the Lust for Love author told Us, referring to her activism. “They worry about me, just like my mom. They worry because I do get into situations that are really difficult.”

June 24. Brandon will star alongside Brody Jenner, Kaitlynn Carter, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Justin Bobby Brescia, Jason Wahler and Whitney Port. Alums Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari and Lo Bosworth will be absent from the revival.

Pamela at the U*NITE fashion show in Monaco

She took her son Brandon Lee as her date to the amfAr Gala in Cannes this year.

And Pamela Anderson was joined once again by her 22-year-old son on Friday, as they attended the U*NITE fashion show at the Amber Lounge inside the Le Meridien Beach Plaza Hotel in Monaco on Friday.

The actress and model, who looked sensational in a white low-cut dress, was also accompanied by her boyfriend Adil Rami as she sat with the Marseille defender in the front row at the show.

The Playboy star paired her slinky full length gown with black open-toed sandals and carried a small black bag adorned with studs.

Pamela showcased her beauty by modelling a palette of expertly applied make-up including gold eye shadow and a slick of pink lipstick on her pout.

Her blonde locks were pulled up in an elegant ponytail and she teased her fringe around her face.

Adding a pop of colour to her look, the beauty painted her nails and toes with a bright red polish.

Adil dressed in a black brocade blazer which he paired with black trousers and a tight black shirt.

The sportsman completed his look with a pair of black ankle boots and rocked a bold moustache for ceremony.

Brandon looked equally dashing in a classic black tux, complete with a white shirt and bow tie, adding a more casual touch with a black baseball cap.

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.’

In September, Page Six reported Pamela had split from the sportsman as she felt the couple’s year-long relationship was interfering with Adil’s obligations as a father.

Rami, who first embarked on a relationship with Pamela in late 2017, shares two-year-old twins sons Zayn and Madi with ex-girlfriend Sidonie Biémont.

The reports also claimed Pamela broke up with her on/off boyfriend after he began discussing marriage.

The source said: ‘It broke Pam’s heart that he doesn’t see them enough, as he should, so she’s moving out… She is removing herself from his life so he can do the right thing and be with his kids.’

Last summer, the pair were the subject of engagement rumors after she was spotted wearing a giant Cartier sparkler on her ring finger, but the French hunk later denied the reports.

Pamela was married to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee from 1995 till 1998, with the pair sharing sons Brandon, 22, and Dylan, 21, together.

She became engaged to model Marcus Schenkenberg shortly after, but called it quits in 2001.

Months later, the former Playboy vixen dated musician Kid Rock, with the couple marrying in July 2006 and divorcing just a year later.

Pamela and film producer Rick Salomon enjoyed a short-lived marriage from 2007 till 2008, and wed again in 2014, before officially splitting in 2015.
