During her speech at the launch of her foundation, Pamela Anderson Foundation, at Cannes Film Festival last week, glamour model and actress Pamela Anderson revealed how she was molested from age 6 and gang-raped by her first boyfriend and his friends who decided it would be fun to rape her
"I did not have an easy childhood. I was molested from age 6-10 by my female babysitter. I went to a friends boyfriends house while she was busy. The boyfriends older brother decided he would teach me backgammon which led into a back massage which led into rape- my first heterosexual experience. He was 25 yrs old, I was 12.
My first boyfriend in grade 9 decided it would be fun to gang rape me (with 6 of his friends) Needless to say I had a hard time trusting humans. I just wanted off this earth. My parents tried to keep me safe but to me the world was not a safe place, my dad an alcoholic, my mom worked two jobs waitressing. My mom was always crying. Dad didn't always come home leaving us in tremendous pain and worry. I couldn't bare to give her any more disruptive information. I couldn't break her heart any more than it was breaking. I kept these events to myself. Sometimes, when you smile, it's not because you are happy, it's because you are strong" she said
