Brandon Lee is bracing for his personal life to be televised.
ET’s Katie Krause caught up with the 23-year-old son of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee at the premiere of his new show, The Hills: New Beginnings. Brandon and his 56-year-old dad made headlines back in March after Brandon allegedly assaulted his father in his bedroom at his home in Calabasas, California, something that Brandon is a little apprehensive to relive on the reality show reboot.
“I mean, that’s something that I’ve tried to keep private between me and my dad, but it’s definitely, you know, it’s inevitable that it spills over onto my show,” he said. “It’s a big part of my life. It’s something that was really prevalent in my life at the time, during most of the filming process. So I think you’ll get to see a little bit of that. It [was] definitely a hard time for both of us.”
“I feel like I was pretty angry when I was filming, so I don’t remember what I said, which is, like, kind of nerve-wracking too. I tried to tell him the other day, like, ‘Dude, I don’t know if I said anything crazy.’ But who knows, you know?” Brandon continued of his dad, with whom he appeared to make up with in December. “I was really upset when all that stuff was going on. But friends fight. He’s like my best friend, so people get over it.”
Last June, following a back-and-forth social media feud between the father-son duo, a source told ET that Brandon was tired of fighting publicly with his dad.
“It’s so sad that Tommy feels the need to keep attacking his son despite Brandon’s pleas to quit their very public feud,” the source said. “Brandon wants to rise above all of this but keeps getting pulled into it and defending himself. Brandon realizes enough is enough and that’s exactly why he removed the video of his father, but Tommy doesn’t seem to want it to end. He seems to want to keep fighting.”
When ET spoke with Pamela — who was married to Tommy from 1995 to 1998 — about the feud, she said that it was their business.
“They’re both adults. Maybe Brandon more so,” Pamela, who will also appear on the reboot of The Hills, said last June. “It’s between them. I wish the best for everybody, but, you know, we’re all growing and learning and this is part of it. It’s too bad, but like I said, it’s the past.”
