Tommy Lee’s marriage to Heather Locklear was one of the most talked about rock star and celebrity unions of the late 1980s. The glamorous duo merged the two worlds seamlessly. However, Lee once admitted to being unfaithful to the former Dynasty stunning and revealed how an adult film star’s comment about his penis led to the ruin of the marriage.
How did Tommy Lee meet Heather Locklear?
Lee’s image as a tattooed, hard-working rock and roll star contrasted sharply with Locklear’s persona as a stripped-down California girl.
Lee and Locklear met backstage at an REO Speedwagon concert, reported people magazine.
“I was so shy I couldn’t have gone to her myself,” he said of their first meeting, “but it was Heather or bust.” Locklear, in turn, thought Lee “looked great”.
Locklear’s dentist later told her that someone from Mötley Crüe had tried to contact her.
His manager confirmed that Lee asked for Locklear’s phone number.
“I had called a million times,” admitted Tommy. “I wanted to send her flowers or invite her to something, just to talk to her.”
Three months after they met, Locklear proposed to Lee in a hotel room in Dallas. On Christmas Eve 1985, Lee placed an engagement ring on Locklear’s finger.
They married in May 1986 when he was 23 and she was 24.

During a fan Q&A session for the December 2004 issue of Blender Magazine, Lee was asked about his manhood.
Blabbermouth shared Lee’s comments that originally appeared as part of a regular Blender feature titled “Dear Superstar”.
A fan asked Lee about his penis, which the rocker recently showed off in a since-deleted Instagram post Aug. 10. The image remains on its Twitter feed.
Lee’s response to the question included details about the end of her union with Locklear.
“Probably when I started fucking with pornstars. Because they see a lot of shit. That’s their job, right? Lee explained.
He continued, “So they see a lot. And then you hear from a girl, ‘F***! You have a huge cock!’ You’re like, ‘Wow, right on! Oh good? Compared to what?’ And then you realize: compared to all kinds of assholes! Yeah, fucking with pornstars ruined my marriage. It was 93, just before I divorced Heather [Locklear].”
When did Tommy Lee and Heather Locklear divorce?
Their union ended after Lee cheated on Locklear with pornstars.
The biopic Dirtiness featured a pivotal scene when Lockear realized Lee was being unfaithful.
It portrays Lee (played by Colson Baker, aka Machine Gun Kelly) in his home recording studio when Locklear (Rebekah Graf) bursts in with a newspaper that reports Lee slept with a porn star.
The couple broke up in 1994 after eight years of marriage.
Prior to Locklear, Lee married Elaine Starchuk. After his marriage to the Dynasty star, Lee married Pamela Anderson, and together they have two sons, Brandon and Dylan. He is currently married to Brittany Furlan.
Locklear married Richie Sambora in 1994. They have one daughter, Ava, and divorced in 2007.
