Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee has been in several tumultuous and high-profile relationships, having been married to a bevy of beauties.
He and his ex-wife Pamela Anderson, with whom he shares his only two sons, are frequently referenced together, often because of their infamous sex tape, leaked on the Internet in 1996.
His current wife, Brittany Furlan, says that despite all the talk of his relationship with Anderson, it is really his second wife, actress Heather Locklear, who had his heart.
“Everyone glorifies his relationship with Pam, but he was married to Heather for [nearly] eight years,” she explained to People magazine, even calling her “the one that got away.”
“That was a different time. He was 25 years old, 26 years old. Not to make excuses, but he’s a very different man now from all those years ago. You live and you learn.”

Locklear and Lee were married from 1986 through 1993 and have been able to maintain a friendship.
With the recent release of Anderson’s book, “Love, Pamela,” and documentary, “Pamela, a Love Story,” their relationship has once again been heavily dissected in the media.
In her book, Anderson wrote of Lee, “My relationship with Tommy may have been the only time I was ever truly in love.”
Despite previous friction with Anderson, Furlan told People in April that she and Anderson were “all cool” with one another.
