Tommy Lee's ex-fiancee has made peace with the rocker, 15 years after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting her.
Lee spent three hours in jail in 1994 but was released and denied attacking former beauty queen Bobbie Brown.
The incident prompted the couple to split, and Brown claims she was left psychologically damaged for years, until Lee reached out and apologised earlier this year (09).
Brown, 39, tells, "It probably took me 10 years to be able to be in the same room with him and not be affected in some way emotionally.
"Of course, I was ruined for at least five years after that. It was literally horrible for me."
She adds of their reunion, "Seeing him again - I got mad. You know how at first you're sad then mad? But then I became like a buddy. Now we're friends.
"But you're still emotionally affected by what he did, for a very long time. He actually apologised this year."
Brown tells all about her life with Lee and other rock lovers Mark MCGrath and Jay Gordon in a new memoir, called Serial Rock Dater: Sex, Drugs, and Cherry Pie.
