Pamela Anderson pens open letter about ‘disaster’ ex Tommy Lee

Cape Town – Pamela Anderson has broken her silence following the alleged fist fight between her ex-husband Tommy Lee and son Brandon Lee.

In an open letter titled Alcoholism is the Devil on her website, Pamela details her feelings towards the Mötley Crüe member and voices her support for her son who she says “acted out of self defense and was scared for his life.”

Pamela goes on to share her disappointment in Tommy for his actions towards their children and notes that she has blocked him and will have no contact with him until he is sober.

“I pray Tommy gets the help he needs. His actions are desperate and humiliating. He is a disaster spinning out of control and he is not acting like a father. But this is nothing new.”

“I will never talk to Tommy again before he is sober and in his right mind. Though he’s made attempts to contact me. I have blocked him. It is impossible to reason with crazy. I’m sure the world can see the truth,” the former Baywatch actress added.

Pamela also tapped into her ex-husband’s alleged addictions as well as his “abusive behaviour” before revealing that her son has asked her to remain in France “for now” in the hopes of resolving the issue with his father himself.

The 50-year-old signs off saying: “Tommy feels humiliated - and is attempting to destroy his own son. This is the Devil - This is the disease of alcoholism.”


Tommy Lee has not yet responded to Pamela’s open letter. He did however respond to a report about his son blaming the fight on his alcoholism, on Twitter.
