Popular for his drumming skills and equally notorious for scandals as well as controversial views, Motley Crue member Tommy Lee has amassed a net worth of $70 million. Previously known for his leaked sex tape with Pamela Anderson, Lee is now in the eye of a storm for his social media activity including a transphobic repost.

Lee's music has been his primary source of income as a founding member and the drummer of Mötley Crüe. The band has released 20 albums, with six of them achieving platinum status. Their album sales have been a major contributor to his net worth, with millions of copies sold worldwide.

Tommy Lee diversified his sources of income and music with his rap-metal band, Methods of Mayhem, in 1999. He also launched a project called The Public Record, where new artists were allowed to download his raw tracks and record their own work on top of it. This was done to create an album for Methods of Mayhem by providing an opportunity to emerging talent.

After making money from his music career, Lee went on to invest it in real estate. He purchased a home in the hills of Malibu in 1995, and this property became well-known due to his marriage to Pamela Anderson and the infamous home video sex tape that they stored there. He later acquired a home in Calabasas, California in 2007, which he listed for sale in 2018.
