Tommy Lee

Thomas Lee Bass (born October 9, 1962) is a musician, formerly a drummer for the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. He was born in Athens, Greece and had a brief (1995-1998) but famous marriage to Pamela Anderson. One of their private videos was stolen in 1997, which resulted in an example of nude celebrities on the Internet.

In 2001, 4-year-old Daniel Karven-Veres drowned at Lee's Malibu home during a birthday party for his son Brandon.

On April 17, 2003, a Superior Court jury took less than three hours to reject a wrongful death claim made by Daniel's parents, actress Ursula Karven and TV producer James Veres. The suit accused Lee of negligence for failing to have a lifeguard or someone trained in CPR present during the birthday party.
