Kid Rock reveals reason behind MTV brawl with Tommy Lee

Love rivals trade blows over Pamela Anderson's Blackberry

Kid Rock has revealed he punched love rival Tommy Lee citing: “years of disrespect”.

The two exes of Pamela Anderson came to blows at this month’s MTV Music Awards after Rock claimed that the Motley Crue member sent him “inappropriate emails” on Anderson’s Blackberry.

Rock managed to get his revenge in Las Vegas on September 9, twice hitting Tommy Lee before security waded in to break the argument up.

Speaking to The Sun he explained: “MTV put the three of us in a room probably hoping something would happen. I came back from the bathroom and the guy was sitting pretty much in my seat. That was it.”
