LAS VEGAS, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Tommy Lee says he was just minding his own business at the MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas when Kid Rock came up and punched him the face, TMZ.com said.

In a posting on his Web site, TommyLee.tv, the rocker said he was in the front row of the show hanging out with magician Criss Angel when his ex-wife, Pamela Anderson, "who I love and adore," approached and sat on his lap.

"I get a tap on the shoulder from Kid Pebble," he said of Anderson's other ex-husband. "I stand up and embrace him with a semi-hug and say: 'Hey, dude. What up?' He punches me in the face... Well, if you wanna call it that! More like a bitch slap!"

Lee said that before he could "knock this jealous, no-career-havin' country bumpkin" out, security guards for the Palms casino and hotel separated them.

"So, I'm fine and, of course, leave to my room with police and owner George Maloof. The rest is paper work and (crap.) Anyway, I would like to apologize to Alicia and George and MTV for the disrespectful (crap) caused by a piece of (crap) called Kid Pebble."
