Regarding the situation, stemming from a now-deleted tweet that Lee sent out, Sharon said, "He was a gorgeous young boy, fabulous future he had when we first met, but like so many other people, he is an addict, alcoholic addict and he's been in and out of treatment. Here we are, I don't know how old he is, 35 years later. Basically, he's a mess and it's because of drink and drugs."
Sharon then goes on to give praise to Pamela Anderson, Lee's ex-wife and mother to two children they had together, including Brandon. She says Anderson has done "an amazing job bringing up two fantastic young men," and that the "boys need a father, not a drunken bum who's probably lying on the floor drinking as we speak. Tommy, you are an amazing man. You have the potential to do great things. Just go and get therapy."
Brandon told People, "I'm devastated at the events of the last several days that have been a result of my father's alcoholism... I wanted my dad's hopeful sobriety and recovery to be a private family matter but, as a result of his accusations on social media, I feel forced to speak out... I love my father and just want to see him sober, happy, and healthy."
