It’s well-known that Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee has a temper, and this past weekend, the rocker reportedly unleashed it on actor Nicolas Cage’s son.
According to TMZ, it all went down at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where Motley Crue is currently in the midst of their “An Intimate Evening in Hell” residency.
Nic Cage and his son Weston were hanging out with frontman Vince Neil backstage following the Crue’s Sunday show, when Lee attempted to get into his dressing room. Weston was apparently in the drummer’s way, and TMZ alleges that Lee told him to move…in not the kindest way.
From there, the beginnings of a brawl ensued, when the young Cage apparently challenged Lee to a fight and Lee responded by “getting in Weston’s face and screaming at ear-piercing levels,” TMZ reports.
Fortunately, before things could go any further, the Motley Crue security staff stepped in to appease the situation, and Nic and Weston Cage were removed from backstage.
Weston Cage (22) is perhaps best known as his black metal alter ego “Arcane,” and has performed with bands such as Eyes of Noctum and Arsh Anubis. His altercation with Lee confirms that Cage has quite a temper himself; the young rocker also tangled with his trainer in a 2011 fight that landed Cage in the hospital, according to TMZ.
We’re glad to hear that the fight was broken up before anything serious happened, though we’re not so sure there will be collaboration between ‘Arcane’ and Motley Crue anytime soon.
