This one is a mess. Tommy Lee is pressing charges against the 21-year-old son he shares with Pamela Anderson after a skirmish between the men sent the rocker to the hospital. Tommy said son Brandon straight-up attacked him, whereas Brandon insisted that he hit his dad in self-defense. Tommy posted an image of his busted lip to social media on March 6. "My heart is broken. You can give your kids everything they could ever want in their entire lives and they can still turn against you," he wrote. The whole dispute apparently started after Pamela spoke to Piers Morgan about her relationship with Tommy. According to TMZ, Tommy got upset and posted a tweet blasting Pam. Brandon took exception to that. Brandon claims Tommy lunged at him. Tommy countered, "My fiance 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." Pam spoke out publicly in support of her son, alleging that Tommy is struggling with alcoholism (Tommy's denied it) and is a "disaster spinning out of control." She also said Tommy is "sick" and "the definition of narcissist/sociopath." On March 18, the case was sent to the district attorney's office.

On the March 5 finale of "The Bachelor," Arie popped the question to Becca Kufrin in Peru, choosing her over runner-up Lauren Burnham.

Fast-forward to the "After The Final Rose" special on March 6: Arie came face to face with Becca and explained that he'd wanted the split filmed so people wouldn't have questions.

I can't imagine a life without you," he said. "And I want to do this in front of everyone because I want to show you that I should have done this a long time ago." She said yes, and he told People magazine that they'll wed this year. Silver lining for Becca? She was named the next star of "The Bachelorette."
