Pamela Anderson has now spoken out in defence of Tim Allen after she accused him of flashing her on the set of Home Improvement.
The alleged incident was said to take place when Anderson was 23 and Allen was in his late 30s.
Anderson made the accusation in her upcoming memoir, Love, Pamela, in an excerpt obtained by Variety.
She wrote: "On the first day of filming [Home Improvement], I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe.
"He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath.
"He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even."
Anderson said that she 'laughed uncomfortably' at the alleged interaction.
Variety reports that Allen was 'presumably' referring to when Anderson appeared on the cover of Playboy magazine in 1989.
Following the claims, Allen replied stating that there was no truth to the allegations.
In a statement to Variety, Allen said: "No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing."
The following day, Anderson doubled down on her claims, as she spoke about the alleged flashing incident in more detail.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, she said: "This true story is just one of many surreal and uncomfortable situations I learned to navigate.
"My book goes into how it made me feel over the course of my life and, in this case, my career.
"I have no ill will toward Tim. But like the rest, it should never have happened."
But Anderson has now spoken out once more, this time defending Allen for the alleged incident.
In a text message she wrote to the Variety writer, Anderson said: "Tim is a comedian, it’s his job to cross the line. I’m sure he had no bad intentions.
"Times have changed, though. I doubt anyone would try that post #MeToo. It’s a new world."
The latest development comes after a clip resurfaced of Allen appearing to flash a different actor on the set of Home Improvement.
The footage was taken from a blooper reel, showing a scene between Allen and Patricia Richardson.
With the camera behind the pair, Allen lifts the front of his kilt, shocking his co-star and the live studio audience in the process.
But speaking on the incident with TMZ, Richardson said: "People ask me what was under the kilt when he flashed me, he was well dressed under there, I was just shocked that he lifted the kilt, not by a man in boxer shorts."
