Tommy Lee bids farewell to Motley Crue

Washington, Sep 13 : Rocker Tommy Lee has shattered all hopes of Motley Crue's reunion by quitting the band.

Lee’s decision comes after the filing of an amended complaint, by his three bandmates, against his manager and business partner Carl Stubner.

Mick Mars, Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx are demanding 20 million dollars in damages, and argue that Stubner cost them millions by influencing Lee to turn his back on profitable concert dates and concentrate his efforts in two reality TV shows.

“He (Lee) recently informed Sixx and Mars, the shareholders of Motley Crue, Inc., that he was resigning from the band and his resignation was accepted,” Contactmusic quoted Lee’s spokesman, as stating on website

A previous statement from Lee's attorney Barbara Berkowitz hinted that the drummer was not happy with his bandmates' legal actions.

"Mr. Lee was neither consulted regarding this matter nor authorised the lawsuit. Mr. Lee has not made any allegations against his current personal manager. Mr. Lee feels fortunate to have been part of the Motley reunion tour, as well as other opportunities outside of Motley Crue over the past several years,” Berkowitz said in the statement.

"It is unfortunate that others believe that they all could have made more money had Mr. Lee exclusively participated in the band that he co-founded in 1980,” she added. (With Inputs from ANI)
