Pamela Anderson took a dig at President Donald Trump on Thursday when she lashed out at her ex-husband Tommy Lee over his public fight with their son, according to Fox News.
“I do not like to comment about this. But feel like it’s necessary because of Tommy’s ‘Trump style’ no thought out rampage on Twitter and IG,” the 50-year-old actress shared in a lengthy statement. Anderson’s son Brandon Lee allegedly punched the rock drummer after reading “derogatory” tweets from his father about the “Baywatch” star.

“This matter is ideally between just a father and a son,” she added. “And rehab if the stars align. I will never talk to Tommy again before he is sober and in his right mind. I stand beside my son who acted out of self-defense and was scared for his life.”
“I pray Tommy gets the help he needs,” she continued. “His actions are desperate and humiliating – He is a disaster spinning out of control. And he is not acting like a father. But this is nothing new.”
“My sons have made every attempt to help him in recent months staying with him to make sure he’s ok,” Anderson explained. “Just by being present with him they were hoping he’d feel loved and act differently.”
“I feared things might escalate,” she added. “But-knew this might be what it took to heal old wounds.
Him blaming his son or us for anything is delusional. We have all tried to protect him and help him for too long.”
“He [Brandon Lee] still does not want to see his dad in Jail,” she continued. “He just wants him to get sober. He was putting together an Intervention (along with friends and people Tommy works with and admired). So, that whatever is left of his life can be healthy and peaceful and maybe he will be a healthy part of their lives one day.”
A short time later, Lee told TMZ that his ex-wife’s claims about him having an alcohol problem were way off base.
“Do I drink more than the average Joe? Yes. Have I ever hurt my sons or acted out of turn with them because of my drinking? No.” Lee shared. “No matter how much people wanna pin me as this deviant alcoholic abuser, that isn’t me. I’m a happy fun loving guy.”
