Earlier this week we reported that Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee broke several ribs. While Lee hasn’t revealed the cause of this injury, a new rumor points to band singer Vince Neil being the guilty party.

According to The Metal Den, a source close to the Mötley Crüe camp claims that a fight broke out between Vince Neil and Lee during the final rehearsal before their big tour.

Supposedly, Tommy Lee was body shaming Vince Neil.  Neil got pissed and decided to have a go at Lee.

As quoted from The Metal Den:

“Tommy was making jokes about Vince’s weight problem, and he just kept calling the singer derogatory names like ‘Fat boy’ and ‘Vince Meal’ during band practice, escalating to a big confrontation between the two.

“The worst part,” the source adds, “is that when Vince attacked Tommy, he actually tackled him like a football player, and it knocked the drummer back into his drum kit where he fell onto one of his cymbals really hard.”

In other features that have appeared online, the Mötley Crüe drummer has shared that the reason behind his broken ribs is “fucking bullshit,” but declined to reveal any official cause of the injury.

Is this story from The Metal Den actually true? Sounds like time will tell.
