Pamela Anderson's son 'came home crying' after learning about her sex tape

Pamela Anderson has revealed that her son 'came home crying' after he discovered her sex tape had been stolen and leaked.

The incident took place back in 1996 when what should have remained a private recording of Anderson and her then-husband Tommy Lee was stolen and leaked online.

The model, now 55, has opened up about the impact that the notorious incident had on her life and children in the new Netflix documentary Pamela, A Love Story.

Recalling the moment that her eldest child, Dylan, now 27, learned about the tape, she said he returned home from school and said: "I remember one day after school, Dylan coming to me in tears and saying, 'mom, why did you do that tape?'

"I was like, oh gosh really?"

Anderson's two sons then appeared in the documentary to reflect on the impact the tape had, as well as the later Disney+ dramatisation of the leak, Pam and Tommy.

Her other son Brandon, 26, said of the dramatisation: "Here she is, after another divorce, trying to move on with her life, trying to have some sort of normalcy, but then we hear about a TV show coming out about my parents and about the stolen tape.

"Why bring something up from 20 years ago, that you know f****d someone up?" he questioned. "The worst part of her life and making semi-comedy out of it. It didn't really make sense."

Pamela herself then added: "It really gives me nightmares. I didn't sleep last night at all."

Elsewhere in the documentary, the men said they wish their mum had monetised the sex tape as it would have dramatically changed her financial situation.

"I wish she made the money. She would've made millions of dollars if she just would have signed a piece of paper," Brandon said. "Instead, she sat back with nothing and watched her career fizzle into thin air. She was in debt most of her life."

"I think it would have been a different story if she did cash in on the tape," Dylan added. "It just shows you, right?

"Like, that thing guaranteed made people millions of dollars, and she was like, 'No.' She 100 percent cares about her family being OK and me being OK. Never cared about money."

The documentary's official synopsis reads: "In her own words, through personal video and diaries, Pamela Anderson shares the story of her rise to fame, rocky romances and infamous sex tape scandal."

Pamela, A Love Story will be released on Netflix on 31 January.
