Tommy Lee Gets Thrown Out of Restaurant Over His Attire
MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee claims that he was asked to leave famous New Orleans restaurant Emeril’s this week due to his casual attire.
The 56-year-old spoke about the incident with TMZ on Tuesday as he was seen at LAX airport with his wife Brittany Furlan.
In the video, the 32-year-old Furlan said: “It was actually really stupid. We literally go in there and we sit down and I have a hat on and [Tommy] has a hat on and the waitress, or the host or whatever, goes, ‘Yeah, you have to take your hat off, sir.’ And I was, like, ‘What about my hat?’ And she’s, like ‘Your hat’s fine, but he has to take his off,'” she told TMZ, adding that Lee was wearing a “regular” baseball cap. “So [Tommy] was, like, ‘Oh, what the heck’ and took it off and put it on his lap, and then this guy comes up to our table — we have no problem, the hat’s off everything’s cool — and is, like, ‘Excuse me, I heard you use profanity.’”
Lee then explained that the guy said: “‘You’re going to have to leave,'” to which Tommy responded: “You know what? We’re leaving.”
“We don’t want to be in some stuffy place where they’re, like, ‘Take your hat off,'” Furlan added.
On Tuesday, Lee expressed his dissatisfaction directly at Emeril Lagasse, the restaurant owner.
“Hey @Emeril, I just was at your restaurant in New Orleans and was aggressively asked to leave because I was upset about removing my hat. I removed it and they still came up to the table and gave me a hard time. he tweeted.
