The Baywatch actress spoke about her experience with sexual assault at the launch of her charity The Pamela Anderson Foundation.

She made a moving speech at the event where she revealed she had been raped at the age of 12 and gang-raped at the age of 16.

‘I went to a friend’s boyfriend’s house and his older brother decided to teach me backgammon which led into a back massage, which led into rape. My first sexual experience.’

‘He was 25 years old and I was 12,’ she said.

After speaking about her horrific experience of being gang-raped as a teenager, she revealed: ‘I wanted off this earth.’

Pamela’s mum found out about the traumatic attacks through an email, telling the MailOnline that the news came as a ‘complete shock.’

‘This is a terrible, dramatic thing to have happened to Pamela and if she went through that all by her self it is horrible.’

‘I am kind of numb over it all, I sat there with my mouth open when I found out.’

She added: ‘My husband Barry and I always felt we were there all the time for the kids so it's just terrible to hear this now.’
