Kid Rock Beats Up Tommy Lee - A Top Story of 2007

(antiMusic) For the rest of the year we are going to be looking back at the most read articles from the past year. Today we feature the biggest story from September about Kid Rock b***** slapping Tommy Lee. Here is the story: Something exciting actually came out of the snoozefest better known as the MTV Video Music Awards. Seems Kid Rock gave Tommy Lee a beatdown during the ceremony. Rock first b***** slapping Lee then punching him after Lee antagonized him according to a witness. Now Kid Rock is facing jail for doing what so many have wanted to do.

Hecklerspray details the fight. "At some point during last night's MTV VMA show, Pamela Anderson's ex-husbands Tommy Lee and Kid Rock got embroiled in some kind of schoolgirl slap-fight that ended when Kid Rock punched Tommy Lee, who was then dragged off by security."

"It looked like Tommy Lee initiated it because Kid Rock was ignoring him," rap producer Rich Nice, who was two tables away told AP "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. 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."

Of course, Tommy sees the whole thing in a different light than the witnesses. According to him he was just minding his own business when Kid came out of nowhere and punched him. Tommy gave TheInsiderOnline.com his take on what went down. "I was about to put Kid in the emergency room when security grabbed me," says Tommy. "They said, 'If you move, we will break your arms.'"

He curiously tried to explain Kid Rock punching him by describing his own career, "This is what people do when they have sh*tty albums and their careers are going down the drain."

Las Vegas police cited Kid Rock for misdemeanor battery which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail and a $500 fine.
