Let’s get to know the youngest member who will be rubbing shoulders with Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Jason Wahler, Frankie Delgado, Justin Bobby Brescia, Stephanie Pratt, Brody Jenner and Whitney Port.
1. He’s The Son of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson.
Brandon Thomas Lee was born June 5th 1996 to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and Playboy model Pamela Anderson. He’s apparently very close with his parents and younger brother Dylan.
There are certain people that will ultimately change and shape the course of your life. Mom - you’ve given me everything. I definitely wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t still trying to make you proud. You’ve taught me so many things, and to never show my cards. You taught me how to love, how to stick up for what’s right, and to always follow my dreams. We never had a perfect family, but it was better than that, it was real.... so thank you mom, for everything. HAPPY Mother’s Day... I Love You.
2. He's A Massive Fan Of The Hills
Although Brandon was 10 when The Hills first premiered, he’s been watching the show for years. He told E! Online that meeting Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt was “exactly how [he] thought they would be”.
3. He Went To School In Cananda
Brandon and his brother Dylan attended boarding school on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada for five years. The brothers returned back to the fast-paces Los Angeles life upon graduating high school.
4. Brandon Made Headlines in 2018 For An Altercation With His Dad
Brandon hit the tabloids after a violent fight broke out between the two in early 2018. His father Tommy tweeted at the time, “My fiancée and I were in bed when my son busted into the room and assaulted me. I asked him to leave the house and he knocked me unconscious. He ran away from the police. THAT’S the truth."
The two are reportedly now on good terms.
5. Brandon Has Been Sober For 3 Years
“Three years ago is when I got sober. I was living in Hollywood, it was a lot of distractions: everyone’s going out every night, and it’s distracting for a young kid. You want to live like that, you want to live like a movie star. You want to go out to the club every night, girls are everywhere, this and that, and that made me happy for 10 minutes. It was making me happy in the moment but at the end of the day when everyone goes home, you don’t feel good,” Brandon told WWD.
6. He Wants To Be An Actor
Brandon attended university majoring in theatre for two weeks before dropping out, but that hasn’t stopped him pursuing an acting career. He recently appeared as Brent in Netflix’s Sierra Burgess Is A Loser and will soon feature in an upcoming TV series called Tales.
7. He Used To Date Bella Thorne
Brandon and Bella were an item back in 2015, with Bella telling The View, “Brandon and I reconnected recently. We met during a breakup with my ex, and he's really sweet.”
The two will appear alongside each other in the BET series Tales.
8. He’s Mates With Brody Jenner
Brandon and Brody are reportedly good mates, even before the show started, with the two both growing up in Malibu. It’s always nice having a friend in the cast!
We can't wait to discover more gems about Brandon's past over The Hills: New Beginnings. And the rest is still unwritten....
