Tommy Lee Speaks About Net Video As Crue Crew Splits Over Porn Projection Flap

December 5 [10:00 EDT] -- Mötley Crüe seems to have found more trouble with various forms of pornography.

As we first reported on Tuesday, Crüe Tommy Lee and his wife, Pamela Anderson, "reluctantly" dropped the legal action that attempted to block the Internet Entertainment Group from posting an X-rated video of the couple having sex.

The Lees had sued the firm for invasion of privacy and receiving stolen property, because they claim the tape was taken from their home in 1995. The couple previously lost a lawsuit against "Penthouse" magazine, which printed stills from the video, when a judge ruled the material was newsworthy.

The video made its first appearance on the Internet site November 6, but was taken down after five heavily-trafficked hours. The two sides agreed to settle the suit through binding arbitration.

A spokesperson for the Lees said they were prohibited from discussing the settlement, but Tommy recently vented to the folks at "Webnoize."

"It's

f***ing unbelievable," Lee reportedly said. "These f***ers are profiting from my privacy, profiting on personal s**t stolen from my home, stolen from a safe the size of a f***ing refrigerator.

"We're being normal, happily married kids," Lee explained to "Webnoize."

"I have to wonder what it would be like if the judge was in my position. Things would be different. The guys selling this, I hope those cold-blooded f***ers die. You can print that."

Lee and his Crüe-mates found themselves in a bind over pornographic material of another sort recently. The band took a lot of heat for projecting a porn video onto a screen before hitting the stage previosuly on their tour. The band blamed the incident on their crew and fired their video director, but four others consequently quit the tour in disgust.

"They ran the stuff once and it wasn't good stuff," former production manager Dale "Opie" Skjerseth told "Performance" magazine, "They got a big response so they

wanted to run it again. We all resigned and moved on and I'd rather be known for that that for putting it on the screen... It's not 1989 anymore. Nowadays we all have to pay a little respect to each other."
