Tommy Lee, a drummer and founding member of the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, trended worldwide this week after he posted nude photos of himself on social media.

Although the photo has since been deleted from Instagram for going against the platform's rules on nudity, the image has been shared by users on other social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Who is Lee and what is his net worth? Here is the answer to that and more about the musician.

He was born Thomas Lee Bass in Athens, Greece, in October 1962. His family moved to California when he was about a year old.

Lee was only 4 years old when he received his first drum sticks. He was a teenager when he got his first true drum kit. It was during this time that he discovered and got inspired by the music of Kiss, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple.

In high school, he became a drummer in a marching band. He dropped out in his senior year to focus on his dream of being in a rock band.

His first band, Studio 19, played the Sunset Strip in California in the early '80s. He left the band eventually and formed Mötley Crüe in 1981 with bandmate Nikki Sixx, whom he met at a Studio 19 show.

Guitarist Mick Mars later joined the new band. Lee recommended Vince Neil, a singer he knew from high school, as the band's lead vocalist.

Mötley Crüe released its first song "Too Fast For Love," in 1981. Not long after, Elektra Records signed the band and re-released the track.

Over the next decade, Mötley Crüe released several hit albums, including "Shout at the Devil, "Theatre of Pain," "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "Dr. Feelgood."

Lee also released solo albums, including "Never a Dull Moment" in 2002 and "Tommyland: The Ride" in 2005. He also released his autobiography, "Tommyland," and starred in his own reality series, "Tommy Lee Goes to College," in which he attended classes at the University of Nebraska and played drums in the school's marching band, in 2005.

Lee has a net worth of $70 million today, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

He has been married four times. He was previously married to Canadian model Elaine Starchuk (1984 to 1985), actress Heather Locklear (1986 to 1993) and actress-model Pamela Anderson (1995 to 1998).

In 2019, Lee tied the knot with his fourth wife, 35-year-old internet personality and comedian Brittany Furlan, who is 24 years younger than him.

In February 1995, Lee paid $837,886 for a home in the hills of Malibu, California. He sold the home in 2005 for $2.5 million.

He listed his 10,000-square-foot mansion in Calabasas, California, for $4.65 million in late May 2018. He had previously listed the property for $6 million in 2016.
