Pamela Anderson defends making sex tape with Tommy Lee

Pamela Anderson spoke out about her infamous sex tape with Tommy Lee

Pamela Anderson has spoken out about the infamous sex tape she made with Tommy Lee that was stolen and leaked to the world.

The tape was thrust into the spotlight in the mid 90s after being stolen by an electrician working at Lee's home, where Anderson had moved in after they tied the knot in their whirlwind romance.

Anderson said it was never her intention for it to see the light of day.

When asked what she wants people to understand about the tape, she told the host: "That it was stolen property."

In a 2014 Rolling Stone article, electrician Rand Gauthier claimed Lee owed him $20,000 (£16,300) for work he'd done at his home before he was fired from the job.

The electrician initially said he was willing to forgive the drummer, but alleged Lee pointed a gun at him when he returned to the house to collect his tools.

That summer, he said he sat outside the home devising a plan, saying: "I cased the joint."

The tape had been stored in a safe with other valuables and was stolen in November 1995.

"I mean, we were naked all the time and filming each other and being silly, but those tapes were not meant for anybody else to see," she said in defense.

She went on to say she's never watched the tape, adding: "I've not seen it to this day … It was very hurtful."

Anderson's interview comes ahead of the new Netflix documentary titled Pamela, a love story, which sees the actor reflect on her career, relationships and treatment by the media.

In a trailer for the documentary, Anderson could be heard describing how she 'blocked that stolen tape out of [her] life in order to survive'.

After the tape became a topic of discussion again following the release of the series Pam & Tommy, she added: "Now that it’s all coming up again, I feel sick.

"I want to take control of the narrative for the first time.”

The actor told Tudum she was 'hesitant' about creating the documentary, but is now hopeful that her story will inspire people to 'not worry so much'.
