While his ex-wife Pamela Anderson honeymoons with Kid Rock – the pair tied the knot in Saint-Tropez last weekend – rocker Tommy Lee is dishing on parenting to TV's Extra.

Saying that he and Anderson, who were married from 1995 to 1998, share the responsibilities of raising of their sons Brandon, 10, and Dylan, 8, Lee tells Extra, "I think I am (the stricter parent)."

Anderson "kind of lets them get away with murder," Lee says, adding, "I think it's a combined effort, (but) they are very spoiled.”

As for his hard-partying reputation, he says, "You have kids and you realize you can't be that guy 24/7. You can be that guy when it's time and you have to be a dad when it's time."

Anderson now has another youngster in her life: Rock's 16-year-old son, Robert James Ritchie Jr., whose mother is Kelly South Russell, a Detroit auto worker.
