Wife Of Mötley Crüe Drummer Tommy Lee Reveals How He Broke His Ribs

As previously reported, Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee has been unable to play full sets on the band’s current tour due to some broken ribs. It was previously unclear how the drummer was injured, but his wife, Brittany Furlan, has since confirmed that he hurt himself after falling down the stairs while carrying luggage at a rental house in Nashville.

Furlan said the following on Snapchat:

“Everyone keeps asking how Tommy broke his ribs, so I’m just gonna tell you. We were staying at an old rental house in Nashville. It was a cool, old quirky house. But the stairs outside were made out of stones, and they were really uneven, and the roots were pushing them up from the tree. And everything was fine. I actually fell up the stairs a few times getting groceries, but whatever.

So, the day that we were leaving Nashville, our driver came and we had all this luggage and he wasn’t helping us; he just stayed in the car. And so Tommy was trying to carry all of our luggage for us. And he fell down these crazy stairs and broke — broke — four ribs. Not fractured, not bruised — broke. And it was crazy, ’cause I came out and he couldn’t breathe. It was really scary.

He was on the ground [and] he was gasping for air. And he got on a plane that day still and went and did the rest of rehearsals [for the tour] in Pennsylvania. He went to the hospital in Pennsylvania when we landed and they were, like, ‘You have four broken ribs.’ And they wanted to keep him there, but they he did not wanna stay. And he’s just a fighter. He’s the toughest guy I know. I mean, look at all his tattoos; he just really fights through the pain. Anyway, that’s what happened.”

Nikki Sixx On Unauthorized Mötley Crüe Play: “We Have Never Been Approached About This Play”

Nikki Sixx has taken to social media to condemn the release of writer/director David Lucarelli’s unauthorized Mötley Crüe play, “The Crüe: Underneath The Dirt Lies The Truth.” That show is currently set to debut at the Hollywood Fringe Festival in Los Angeles, CA on June 4.

Sixx said the following on Instagram:

“Fans of Mötley Crüe have asked about a new play by David Zucarelli’s [sic] called ‘The Crüe: Underneath The Dirt Lies The Truth.’

I was disappointed to see an advertisement using my image and our band’s trademark The Crüe to promote this play.

The advertising is misleading because it suggests that I and the other members of the band are somehow involved with the play.

We have never been approached about this play. And Mötley Crüe has no connection or affiliation with this play whatsoever.”
