Tommy Lee steps out for low-key stroll as he's seen for the first time since son Brandon posted video of the rocker unconscious in his underwear amid Father's Day spat
His most recent Father's Day proved to be quite the tumultuous occasion, when he engaged in yet another very public spat with his eldest son Brandon.
But Tommy Lee, 55, was spotted enjoying some quiet time with his fiancée Brittany Furlan as they stepped out for a low-key stroll in the upscale neighbourhood of Calabasas, California, on Tuesday.
Wearing a black graphic print tank top with trendy ripped jeans, his outing was a far cry from the vitriolic exchange between him and his son, in which he dubbed his two offspring and ex-wife Pamela Anderson 'a**holes'.

With a black baseball cap topping the rocker's raven locks, which he teamed with a pair of Vans hi-tops, the rocker kept his head down and hid his eyes behind a pair of tinted shades as he walked a few steps ahead of his wife-to-be.
Tommy triggered a war of words on Sunday, when he posted two throwback photos in honour of Father's Day with an extensive caption in which he praised his own father before calling his two sons and wife Pamela Anderson 'a**holes'.
Brandon hit back with a video of his father passed out in his underwear that is believed to have been taken directly after the 22-year-old sucker punched Tommy on March 5.

In the caption he wrote: 'Remember what happened last time you said this s***?'
Tommy posted the two photos, one of himself with his own father and one with a young Brandon, on Sunday morning along with a lengthy caption about fatherhood.
He begins by thanking his own father and then digs into his complicated relationship with his boys, Brandon and Dylan, 20.
A large portion of the caption is targeted at the boys' mother, Baywatch star Pamela, who was married to the rocker from 1995 to 1998.
'Happy Father’s Day fellas! I’m not gonna sit here and post some fluffed up bullshit for the public to read.... I’m gonna be honest- Being a father ain’t easy!' Tommy wrote.

Dad: In the caption, he praised his father before launching into a rant about his own experience with fatherhood, calling his own two sons and their mother Pamela Anderson 'a**holes'
'I’m so tired of the fake shit I keep seeing all over IG... let’s get real: It’s a rollercoaster ok? My father taught me to respect everyone and everything and to take care of those that I loved. He taught me to appreciate my possessions, and to be grateful for the things I was given. I’ve fucked up at times but I’ve always bounced back.
'When I had a child, my first child, I wanted to instill those same virtues into him. Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things. If they break something, they don’t care because they know they’ll just get a new one, if they hurt someone, they don’t care because so many people tell them it’s OK.
'I never wanted this for my kids. I know I’m not fully to blame, because their mom has a lot to do with it, enabling bad behavior and buying them things when they weren’t good, but I guess I hoped at the end of the day they would end up kind.
'I love them dearly, don’t get me wrong, but man, sometimes it’s really tough to watch your kids grow up without those morals. Nothing can really prepare you for fatherhood .... I love my boys but they can be assholes too...and that’s the truth (Cue Honest Guy music).'
Shot: Brandon responded by posting a video his father passed out in his underwear, believed to have been taken after he sucker-punched Lee in a highly-publicised altercation in March
Threat: Brandon added what appeared to be a threat, 'Who the f*** are you? Just move on dude... WE ALL HAVE. or I’ll put you right back to f***in sleep'
Attacked: The 22-year-old blasted his famous father in a second Instagram post
Brandon took a screenshot of his father's harsh words and posted them to his own Instagram account.
In the caption he wrote: 'Remember what happened last time you said this sh*t? night night.
'You gotta show up to be a Dad big guy. If you think we’re so bad (which I can assure you we are not) then you should have showed up to a few more BDays and baseball games. Someone like you couldn’t raise a man like me.
Once again painting our family in a negative light. Who the fuck are you? Just move on dude... WE ALL HAVE. or I’ll put you right back to fuckin sleep.'
He then uploaded the video of Tommy unconscious on the floor of his home in Calabasas, California, with the caption: 'Look a little sleepy there Tommy.'

Back in March Tommy took to Twitter to reveal that Brandon had punched him and 'knocked him unconscious' during a late night altercation.
Along with the tweet he posted - and then deleted - a photo of his bloodied, swollen lip.
Brandon said he punched in self-defense but Tommy told the story differently.
'My fiancée and I were in bed when my son busted into the room and assaulted me. I asked him to leave the house and he knocked me unconscious. He ran away from the police. THAT’S the truth.' he tweeted.
The duo came to blows after Tommy had criticized ex Pamela for discussing his arrest for spousal battery against her in 1998 in an interview with Piers Morgan.
Tommy tweeted at the time: 'Think she'd find something new to discuss instead of rehashing old s*** but I guess she has nothing else going on & needs attention. Signed, 'The abuser' (who she texts everyday & asks for me back).'
Meanwhile, Brandon blamed the fight on his father's alleged alcoholism.
In April, TMZ reported that the Los Angeles District Attorney rejected a criminal case against Brandon because Tommy stopped cooperating with authorities - despite earlier saying that he would.
Tommy is thought to have had a change of heart after viewing a video in which Brandon was asked if he was ready for a reconciliation. 'Of course, man,' Brandon responded. 'I love my dad, man.'
