Months after an alleged physical altercation between the two left the rocker with a bloody lip, Tommy shared a candid Instagram post in honor of the holiday including two photos: one of the musician with his own father and a throwback picture with one of his sons. (He and ex Pamela Anderson are also parents to son Dylan Jagger, 20.)
“Happy Father’s Day fellas! I’m not gonna sit here and post some fluffed up bulls— for the public to read…. I’m gonna be honest- Being a father ain’t easy!” he wrote. “I’m so tired of the fake s— I keep seeing all over IG… let’s get real: It’s a rollercoaster ok?”
The 55-year-old drummer claimed that he wanted to instill the respect for others and material possessions that his own dad taught him into his own children.
“Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things,” he claimed. “If they break something, they don’t care because they know they’ll just get a new one, if they hurt someone, they don’t care because so many people tell them it’s OK. I never wanted this for my kids. I know I’m not fully to blame, because their mom has a lot to do with it, enabling bad behavior and buying them things when they weren’t good, but I guess I hoped at the end of the day they would end up kind.”
He added, “I love them dearly, don’t get me wrong, but man, sometimes it’s really tough to watch your kids grow up without those morals. Nothing can really prepare you for fatherhood …. I love my boys but they can be a——- too…and that’s the truth (Cue Honest Guy music).”
Brandon replied by sharing a screenshot of his dad’s post on his own Instagram account, claiming he was an absent father.
“Remember what happened last time you said this s—? ]]>🤔😴🏼😴😴
