The rocker, 55, took to social media to slam the radio host, 64, for saying that the actress’ past relationships with Lee and Richie Sambora may have contributed to her current troubles.
“@HowardStern Queen of media! How dare you blame me for Heather’s recent troubles! That was like 24 years ago you idiot! #cowardsterntimewarp you should be wishing her well and not bashing me f--khead!!! Wtf is wrong with you? I normally don’t respond to this stuff..f--king BS!!” he tweeted Monday evening.
“You know what drove this woman crazy?… She was married to Tommy Lee and Richie Sambora… they made her f–king insane,” he said, according to Radar Online.
Some of Stern’s fans have suggested that the comment was taken out of context and was actually made in jest.
Locklear, 56, was married to Lee from 1986 to 1993. The next year, she married Sambora, who she stayed wed to until 2006.
A rep for Stern’s radio show did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
