Johnny Lee: “I Just Have to Say What A Fricken A**hole Travis Tritt is…” (UPDATE ON THE UPDATED UPDATE)

WOW…I love that Johnny Lee says what he means and SHAME SHAME SHAME on Travis Tritt IF ANY part of this is true. I know there are two sides to every story, but here is Johnny’s:

WOW.

Travis is denying this happened when asked about the situation on his Facebook page.

“How sad that people want to tear others down. My management team is currently investigating where the rumor started and get names and contact info from those that seem to have what they believe is a eye witnesses / written account. We take rumors / things like this very serious. Thank you again.”

“I’m still pretty fired up about this situation; my heart truly goes out to this little boy. If anyone knows who this little guy is, PLEASE send me a private Facebook message so I can call and send him something special. THANK YOU so all my AWESOME fans who truly I LOVE!!!!!!!”

He goes on to say:

“…YES this is a TRUE story my friend…I, Johnny Lee would NEVER make up a story like this!! I also have to add, all the policemen, security were told NOT to let ANY FANS within 15 feet of him too. I personally think he’s a complete A*SHOLE!!”

UPDATED UPDATE:

This just in…Travis Tritt denies Johnny’s accusations!

This is getting good. Honestly, the best part as far as dramatic entertainment, are all the fans fighting in the comment section:

Renee Boyanton Hasty Tell the devil to get behind you Trav and move forward!

Michelle Clark Miller Johnny Lee was the singer of a one hit wonder song from the movie Urban Cowboy… “Lookin For Love”. (In all the wrong places). Probably a bit before some of ya’lls time. Lee also has a history of substance abuse, so I wouldn’t take what he says too seriously. 

Rhonda Harrison Kinnaird Johnny lee is a washed up loser that couldnt run with the big dogs!

Elaine Watson BTW you bought my Grandmother’s bestfriends house in Hiram…Sure doesnt look the same its beautiful.

Damn Elanie, that was random.

DRRRRRAAAMMMMAAA.

Has anyone heard/seen from the family of this kid?  I just can’t see why Johnny Lee would randomly attack Travis Tritt. Seems odd.

UPDATE OF THE UPDATED UPDATE:

Johnny Lee speaks again!

Via his personal Facebook page:

Sooooo…looks like Johnny admits he didn’t PERSONALLY hear/see all this go down, but he is sticking by his sources.

The Po-Po said so!

What really happened?  I guess we will never know.

The End.

    It must have been “a great day too be alive” and “the sun must have been shining when he closed his eye”…or maybe it was a 3 day beard that he hadn’t shaved..if these statements are true, I’m sure he knows that this was not a good thing too do. At least I hope so, God save us.!

    Remember when we saw Johnny at Hill’s Cafe? He was very gracious giving me an autograph and posing for a photo on his bus after the show. I can understand that that would be his reaction if he believed Travis Tritt acted that way. For Travis’ sake, I hope he didn’t and that it is a vicious rumor.

      ME? This is a GOSSIP BLOG. My job is to POST about the GOSSIP. I don’t give three shits if it is true or not, that isn’t my JOB. Did I say it was true? Did I use the word ALLEGEDLY? I damn sure did.

      See how that works?

      Did I make any of this up or did I just cut and paste a picture from Johnny Lee and Travis Tritt’s OFFICIAL VERIFIED social media accounts?

      Get down off the cross, lady. I know you are at home with your Travis Tritt shrine judging ME and how I spend MY time…but you are the one that sought it out to read it. I didn’t send it to YOU.

      If you don’t like it, don’t read it.

          This isn’t Johnny Lee’s blog “hunny”, you said YOU…YOU is me.

          Don’t get all snippy with me sister.

          Your beef should be with Johnny Lee, not me…now, take the autographed VHS tape of Rio Diablo you bought on Ebay, your special Fan Club only edition of the “Country Club” cassette and your sacred lock of Travis’s mullet hair and run about your business.

            Sweet little Tanyah is a little obsessed. I don’t bash anyone who comments…actually I LOVE comments. I “bash” anyone that comes here and attacks me, like you did.

            And for the record, my “real job” is better than your vacation. TRUST ME.

            If this blog is so terrible, WHY do you keep coming back?

    I find it hard to believe that this is actually true. I have no idea why he would start a rumor like that but seriously? Am I really supposed to believe that anybody, especially someone in the public eye, would yell and swear at a little kid in a wheelchair? If it’s true then its very sad, but if not, that’s a very pathetic rumor to start

    I have been a Travis Tritt fan since the beginning of his long career. I have never heard of him doing such a thing, especially to a child. I live near him & know people who know him and think the world of him. He is a father of three and I know he has given a lot of money to the children’s hospital in Atlanta, to the local police & sheriff’s departments and to the troops in Afghanistan. I don’t believe he could have gotten so far in his career for so many years if he treated anyone like this. Johnny Lee says he’ll send the kid something special. That kid doesn’t know who Johnny Lee is. He had one hit in the 80′s. Sounds like he’s maybe a bit envious of someone with real talent and a long career with millions of fans supporting him! Travis never lets his fans down at a concert. He gives 1,000 percent and Mr. Lee needs to come up with real evidence if he’s gonna start throwing around such a vicious rumor. Get a life, please!

    This is ridiculous. Johnny Lee is a washed up has been that should keep his mouth shut about things he didnt see with his own eyes or hear with his own ears. The “blogger” who chooses to spread this crap should keep her mouth shut.

    God Bless Rita Ballou. The “fans” who come to defend the honor of their threatened hero have no idea what they’re walking into. But, I find it fascinating when one side immediately attacks the other with the “he’s a loser.” Let’s say this is true – shame on Travis. He deserves every negative comment and then some lobbed his way. Let’s say it isn’t true – Do you really think an artist that has been around as long as Johnny Lee (no matter how long ago his hit was…..it wasn’t too much before Travis’ last hit anyway) would actually say such things? My guess is if it isn’t true, that someone hacked Johnny Lee’s account. But – to come on a gossip site and attack the “reporter” and then act shocked that she attacks your over-zealousness is what the rest of us are waiting for. It’s like lobbing kittens into the shark tank. It’s not really a fair fight. (Now I’ve got to go find my VHS player)

    For whoever stated Johnny Lee was a one hit wonder….

    Johnny Lee has just as many number one singles as Travis Tritt… they each have 5. Johnny Lee’s singles all hit number within a 4 year period ( 1980 to 1984). Travis Tritt’s singles where spread out over a 10 year period (1990 to 2000).

    Either way, if Travis did as accused, he will be judged one day. If he didn’t, then Johnny will be judged for lying… the Lord knows and he will be the judge, not any of us….

    Ok when I’m wrong I apaolgize. Johnny Lee is not a one hit wonder. I hadno idea he ever a hit besides “Looking for Love”. I do think unless someonehas a video of Travis Tritt doing this that I nor any of his fans will ever believe it. If there is no concrete proof it shouldn’t have been posted.

      I played guitar for Johnny for a number of years. You were gracious to retract the “one-hit-wonder” comment. We could do a couple of hours and not play all of Johnny’s hits. Can’t comment on the Travis thing; wasn’t there. Too bad for both stars.

    Comment: I just wanted to tell you that the accusations that Johnny Lee is making about Travis Tritt are false… I was there and Johnny Lee was not… I was in the front row and 10 feet away from the child.. I know this child and his family and have to say that the boy was never with in 20 feet of Travis Tritt… He was still in front of the stage when Travis left the stage to get onto his bus. That path is barricaded and no one was allowed in that area during that time…. It is this way with ALL of the artist who perform here… They did ask someone out side of the bus if they would ask Travis to come see the boy but they were told no… Never by Travis Tritt himself… I DID see all of this and have no reason to state anything other than the facts… You want an eyewitness account, you got one…It never happened… I liked Johnny Lee up to this point and have to say that I am very disappointed in how he chose to handle something that he did not witness with his own eyes… It was in fact witnessed by no one, because it did not happen. I can not emphasize enough that the boy was never close enough or had any contact with Travis Tritt. It is a crazy statement to make that no one was allowed to take pictures. I was in the very front and took many pictures that he posed for… We were never told that we could not take pictures ever. Everyone was taking them… How would you enforce such a ridiculous request anyway with a large crowd such as that? Johnny Lee made a statement stating “I do not lie” well that itself is a lie for everyone does… Perhaps he truly believes what someone told him, but this should have been handled in a more professional manner…. Bottom line is that someone who was not happy that the child did not get an autograph has greatly exaggerated the story. And when I posted that I was there and told my account on Johnny Lee’s page, my post was deleted… says a lot…. He was very kind to my own son that night and I can not imagine him ever doing any child that way….
