Who Is Brittany Furlan, Tommy Lee's Wife?
Entertainment And News

Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee has been the subject of controversy and scandal over the years. He and Pamela Anderson had their sex tape leaked back in the 90s, and he also served time in jail for spousal abuse after assaulting Anderson while she was holding their son, Dylan.

In 1998, he was sued for having a right-facing swastika on his arm, and also attacked a Jewish photographer outside the Viper Room in 1996. But that’s not all. In 1999, he was arrested for a 1997 riot that he started at the Greensboro Coliseum. In 2001, Daniel Karven-Veres, a four-year-old attending Lee’s son Brandon’s birthday, drowned in their swimming pool. The parents sued Lee for negligence, but he was cleared of the charges. Most recently, in 2007, he was kicked out of the VMAs for fighting with Kid Rock.

But aside from all the allegations and troubles with the law, Lee has managed to land himself a successful and funny wife. Who is Brittany Furlan, Tommy Lee's wife?

Lee married Furlan, a social media personality, on Valentine's Day in 2019, just one year after they became engaged. And though it appears she tries to stay out of the spotlight, sources are now claiming that Furlan is attempting to use Heather Locklear, one of Lee's exes, to further her own career.

Just who is Brittany Furlan? You actually may know her from the internet, but here's everything we know about Furlan’s career, her relationship with Lee, and the recent allegations against her.

1. Lee proposed on Valentine’s Day 2018 — and they subsequently wed the same day a year later.

In 2018, Lee popped the question on the most romantic day of the year! Furlan posted a video of her heart-shaped engagement ring writing, “Well this certainly beats chocolates! Say hello to future Mrs. Lee.” She also wrote on Twitter, “Best day of my life!!!! I can’t wait to get to spend forever with my best friend.”

Just one year later, they tied the knot on Valentine’s Day 2019. Both of their dogs were dressed to the nines for the occasion. How sweet is that?

2. Furlan is Lee's fourth wife.

Though this is the first marriage for Furlan, Lee has been part of three high-profile marriages: Elaine Starchuk, Heather Locklear, and Pamela Anderson. He and Anderson briefly reconciled after their split in 1998, and have two sons together.

3. Who is Brittany Furlan? She was a Vine star.

Before the app went under, Furlan had over nine million followers and was the third most popular account. She was also one of the highest paid Vine stars, making anywhere from $7,000 to $20,000 per post. In 2015, she was named one of the most influential people on the internet by Time.

She’s now moved over to Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, and Lee often appears in her skits and vlogs.

4. Her dogs are famous, too.

Her dogs were once the faces of a doggy clothing line for American Eagle Outfitters. The dogs, Meghan and Wicket, modeled the Spring 2014 collection.

Since Meghan’s passing in 2014, she’s gotten another dog named Neena Da Weena, and Furlan and Wicket still appear in her Instagram skits. They even have their own social media account.

5. Furlan is also an actress.

Furlan moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting, and starred in the films We Are Your Friends, Dreamland, and Random Tropical Paradise.

She also appeared in Pitbull’s music video for “Fireball” in 2014, along with fellow internet sensations Jenna Marbles and Bart Baker. In addition, she was featured in the 2018 Netflix documentary The American Meme.

6. Furlan allegedly planned to use Lee's ex, Heather Locklear, for her own benefit.

In January 2020, Furlan was reportedly urging Lee to get closer to his ex, Heather Locklear, in an effort to "use her name."

A source claimed that Furlan “wants them to be friends so she can be in the spotlight and use (Locklear’s) infamous name!” Furlan also reportedly had her husband call Locklear over the holidays. Says the source, “She wants to use the situation to say she and Heather are friends. She’s a total opportunist.” 

However, a source also claimed that the social media star's plans could backfire, adding, “Brittany wants Heather to be close so her career can take off. And Heather wants to be close so she can get back together with Tommy, so Brittany better be careful!”
