Spike Lee threw a birthday for his wife earlier this month. The film director held the birthday bash at The Skylark on March 30, 2015 in New York City.

Satchel and Jackson did a good job of keeping the party a secret. The teens helped their dad plan the entertainment as well as catering without Tonya having a clue as to what was in store for her. Spike gave his wife a unique present that read, “Love Tonya” during the festivities. The words were written on the knuckles of a man who appeared to be a younger version of Lee.


Spike has enjoyed many years as a successful film director and professor at New York University. His latest film, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, was released on Vimeo days before making its official debut in theaters. “I’m hyped on my partnership with Vimeo to get my new joint ‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus’ out to the world in a new way,” said Lee of his partnership with the entertainment site. “This is the future of film distribution. Please join us,” added the star.

Spike Lee began his trails in film creation more than three decades ago. He and wife Tonya Lewis-Lee have two kids together.
