Pamela Anderson has two sons with Mötley Crüe drummer and ex-husband Tommy Lee: Brandon Thomas Lee, 26, and Dylan Jagger Lee, 25.
Brandon and Dylan grew up in the spotlight to famous parents Anderson and Lee. Though Anderson and Lee divorced in 1998, Anderson maintains in her memoir, “Love, Pamela,” that the two still “check in, every once in a while.”
In 2015, Anderson told People, “I had beautiful children with him. My kids are grateful to be born out of true love. Everything else I was trying to piece together.”
Brandon and Dylan were born in Malibu and sent to a remote island in Vancouver for boarding school.
In a joint conversation with Interview Magazine in 2019, Brandon and Dylan opened up about growing up in Los Angeles and having famous parents.
“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,” Dylan told the outlet. “LA 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.”
Dylan is also a model and in 2018, walked alongside his brother at the Dolce & Gabbana show in Milan.
Dylan’s modeling career began in 2016 when he posed for a Saint Laurent campaign, according to Vogue France.
Dylan is currently signed with EWG Management and his resume includes work with Coach, Hugo Boss, Acne Studios, and Armani Exchange, according to his EWG Management bio.
In March 2018, Tommy Lee accused Brandon of assaulting him in his Los Angeles home. Later that year, the two publicly made up on Instagram.
According to a March 2018 article by People, officers responded to an incident at Tommy Lee’s Los Angeles home, where Lee had to be transported to the hospital. People reported that Brandon was named a person of interest in the assault, but no arrest was made.
Brandon later told People
that the altercation was due to Lee’s alcoholism. “I love my father and just want to see him sober, happy and healthy,” Brandon told the outlet.
In December 2018, the two seemingly made up. Lee posted a photo of him and Brandon hugging with the caption, “I love you son.” Brandon responded with the comment, “Love you Dad.”
In 2019, Brandon spoke to Interview Magazine about his own sobriety.
“Being sober is the best thing that’s ever happened to me … Ever since I got sober, I just feel like everything’s gotten better for me,” he told the outlet.
In addition to acting in films, Brandon appeared in the reality series “The Hills: New Beginnings” from 2019 to 2021.
“The Hills: New Beginnings” was a sequel to the MTV series “The Hills,” which aired from 2006 to 2010. “The Hills” followed Los Angeles socialites as they navigated fame, money, and relationships in the spotlight.”The Hills: New Beginnings” starred OG stars Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Brody Jenner, and new stars, like Brandon.
In the series, Brandon has a close friendship with Jenner and a romantic relationship with model Daniella Beckerman. The two have since broken up and Brandon is rumored to be dating model Lily Easton, according to Elle.
Besides modeling, Dylan is also a musician and previously was a member of the electronic music band Midnight Kids.
Dylan began his music career in the band Midnight Kids. The then-two-person band released their debut EP “The Lost Youth” in 2020.
In January 2021, Midnight Kids announced on Instagram that Dylan would be stepping away from the band.
“As I reflect on my journey up to this point, it’s with a heavy heart that I share I am parting ways and moving in a different musical direction that feels more true to me,” Dylan captioned the post.
In June 2021, Dylan began making music with Anton Khabbaz in the pop band Motel 7.
In March 2022, Motel 7 released “Headphones,” a six-song EP that “dives into more alt-pop, electronic sounds, featuring hip-hop inspired drums and lo-fi beats,” according to Loudwire.
For Interview Magazine in 2019, Dylan talked about his initial aversion to music and admitted that he had “never listened to rock music.”
“My dad loves all music, but I used to hate music back in the day,” he told the outlet. “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.”
Brandon was instrumental in Anderson’s Netflix documentary “Pamela, a Love Story.”
Anderson’s documentary, “Pamela, a Love Story” revealed an intimate look at Anderson’s rise to fame and public scandals. The documentary coincided with the release of her memoir, “Love, Pamela” that was released on January 31.
Brandon served as a producer for the film. Anderson’s eldest son shared his thoughts on the documentary in an Instagram post.
“I’m proud that people will finally get a glimpse into my mother’s truth with this film,” Brandon captioned the post. “I hope they’ll see in the end that behind this caricature that everyone’s loved over the years, there is actually a very real, very lovable, caring, sensitive person who deserves to be protected, cherished, and celebrated.”
Anderson credited both her sons with “encouraging” her to tell her story in her memoir’s dedication. The “Baywatch” star took to Instagram on Monday to share her thoughts on parenting.
“My boys surprise me every day, and the wonderful challenges of motherhood have all been so deeply rewarding,” Anderson wrote in the caption.
