Eyewitness Report Of Kid Rock VS Tommy Lee Fight

The Associated Press is reporting that Kid Rock and Tommy Lee tussled in the audience at the "MTV Video Music Awards" on Sunday night. MTV VJ Sway said during the post-show that he saw Kid Rock walk up to the MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer, who was sitting next to Diddy, and "deck him." The incident was confirmed by Palms Hotel and Casino public relations representative Larry Fink. Both Lee and Kid Rock are ex-husbands of Pamela Anderson, who was a presenter at the show and delivered her lines from atop a table in the audience. Although it wasn't clear whether the two rockers were fighting over something related to Anderson, it was hard to imagine another scenario.

Another eyewitness, rap producer Rich Nice, said although Kid Rock threw the only blows that landed — a backhand slap and a punch — Tommy Lee was the instigator.

"It looked like Tommy Lee initiated it because Kid Rock was ignoring him," said Nice, who was two tables away. "And Tommy Lee kind of antagonized him. And then when Tommy Lee stood up, it looked a little weird, like 'Yo, what?'"

"When Tommy stands up is when Kid hit him the first time with a backhand," Nice continued. "And then Tommy Lee looked like he was trying to get at him to aggressively retaliate and then Kid Rock hits Tommy Lee again — bong. And then security grabs Tommy Lee in a headlock and pulls him off."

It's notable that security guards let Kid Rock stay for the rest of the show while Lee was dragged out.

I could care less about either of these two bozos, but it's pretty funny that Tommy-I-wish-I-was-black-Lee got "b****-slapped," as the kids say. That looks pretty bad.

I feel bad for Kid because he obviously still wants to be with Pamela. The major difference is she's got children and more history with Tommy.
Even more sad is People like Kid and Tommy should have been up on stage trying to perform. MTV proved last night hat pop is what tey believe in....All of the Bands and Rappers were banned to the suites..then if anyone cared.tehy wanted everyone to get online to see those performances!! Kid and Tommy would appear to be a good match..BUT A REAL FIGHT IS ABOUT SKILL NOT AGE OR SIZE. Pam's *U**Y must be the BOMB!!

LOL !!!!
I wonder if this is gonna effect TOMMY'S celebrity DJ gig this thursday at club LEVEL in Buffalo.
LOL !!!!!
Seriously they both need to get over PAM ANDERSON !
I saw an interview on HOWARD STERN.She pretty much admitted to likeing Anal sex.Put that together with her obviously slutty behavior(serial dateing currently with the guy from the paris hilton video)She's gotta be pretty insane in bed.Closest thing to an actual Porn Star possible without actually being a Porn Star.So I sort of understand.
Oh well lucky them I guess ........ I wonder what an ordinary Bro like myself has to do to get some of that?

I can't stand either of their music but I'm glad the story put Kid Rock in a better light, especially since he was trying to ignore Tommy.
