2007: Kid Rock and Tommy Lee smackdown
Who knew that Pamela Anderson was the rock 'n' roll equivalent of Helen of Troy? At the 2007 VMAs, the producers upped the awards show to The Palms in Las Vegas, a more intimate venue with the stars packed together in close quarters. Clearly this environment wasn't suited to the hot headed Kid Rock and Tommy Lee (both ex partners of Pammy) who quickly got into a brawl during Alicia Keys' chilled performance. They were escorted out by security, while Kid (arguably the winner of the fight) was cited for misdemeanor battery for assault on Tommy.
