Courtney Love Backs Friend Pamela Anderson Against 'Vile' Sex Tape Scandal

The buzz surrounding Hulu's upcoming miniseries "Pam & Tommy" has been inject-it-directly-into-my-veins good since photos of Lily James dressed up as Pamela Anderson circulated earlier this month.

The eight-episode limited series, directed by Craig Gillespie and starring Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee, will follow the couple's tumultuous marriage following the release of their infamous sex tape, which was leaked without their consent.

But, before you start planning an Emmys campaign, Anderson's longtime friend Courtney Love is putting a damper on the project's hype, claiming that it hasn't gotten the thumbs up from its real-life subjects.

According to People, Love called “Pam & Tommy” “vile” and “outrageous” in a since-deleted and expletive-laden Facebook post on Sunday.

Pam & Tommy (@pamandtommyonhulu) shared this post on Instagram.

“My heart goes out to Pammy for adding to her complex trauma,” Love wrote in the post, before addressing the series' star directly. “And shame on Lily James, whoever the fuck she is,” Love concluded with the hashtag #vile.

The Hole singer stated that she was in the recording studio when the sex tape was released, and that the "staff engineers / producers / owners / were watching the sex tape with huge schadenfreude."

“It was disgusting, and I prohibited anyone from discussing it,” she went on, “and it completely destroyed my friend Pamela’s life.”

Love, who was in Anderson and Lee's orbit throughout their romance, claimed that she was approached by the "piece of shitproduction" with a request to approve the use of her 1994 Rolling Stone cover shot by photographer Mark Seliger in the series.

“I said fuck no,” Love continued, adding that she was "shocked" because gentlemen "don't approve of this sort of thing."

The “Baywatch” star and the Mötley Crüe drummer married four days after they met in 1995, forever cementing them as tabloid royalty and laying the groundwork for one of pop culture’s most pivotal moments.

The sex tape in question was filmed for their eyes only during their honeymoon, but it was later stolen from a private safe by a disgruntled electrician, Rand Gauthier (played by Seth Rogen in the series), after a disagreement with Lee.

The couple, who have sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 23, sued the distributor, Internet Entertainment Group, and later settled over the video, which was still publicly available and widely viewed at the time.

Anderson, on the other hand, made no money from the tape, which she has yet to see.

“I made not one dollar. It was stolen property. We made a deal to stop all the shenanigans,” Anderson said in a 2015 interview with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.”

“The damage had already been done,” she continued, “so we just said, ‘No way, we're not getting involved in that.'”
