She wrote: "It destroyed my friend Pamela’s life. Utterly... Gentlemen don’t approve this sort of thing. My heart goes out to Pammy. Further causing her complex trauma. And shame on Lily James whoever the [expletive] she is."

The singer added that when the sex tape was leaked, she was shocked when people around her started watching it. She wrote: "ALL! The staff engineers/producers/owners were watching the sex tape with huge schadenfreude... It was disgusting. I banned anyone discussing it."

The synopsis for the upcoming Hulu show reads: "The eight-episode comedic limited series tells the true story of the release of the first-ever viral video in history — the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee."

However, while the tape will play a major part in the series, the story will also focus on Pam and Tommy's relationship going back to the whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for four days in 1995 and their multi-million dollar court battle against those who stole and distributed the video.
