Courtney Love has brutally lashed out at Lily James in a blistering attack on the forthcoming Pamela Anderson documentary series that the British star is performing in.
The 56-year-old American rock icon is a long-time friend of legendary 53-year-old Canadian actress Pamela – and is horrified that a TV series about one of the most traumatic parts of her life is being filmed.
Pam & Tommy is currently filming in the USA, starring 32-year-old Lily in the role as Pamela, while 38-year-old superhero star Sebastian Stan is playing Mötley Crüe drummer, and Pamela’s former husband, Tommy Lee.
The series is set to put a spotlight on the infamous sex tape that Pamela and Tommy made during their honeymoon – with the tape stolen and then leaked online.
Courtney has hit out at the series, blasting it as a celebration of misogyny and arguing it is making entertainment out of Pamela’s personal trauma.
The rocker was made aware of the series after producers contacted her to request approval to use a photo of her in the series – a request she sharply turned down.
Taking to Facebook, Courtney wrote: “I find this so f**king outrageous.
“When Pam / tommy sex tape was out / myself @pattyschemel @xmadmx were making a record. And the lone women in many recording studios in la . Where all / ALL! The staff engineers / producers / owners / were watching the sex tape with huge schadenfraude . . Guffaws.
“It was disgusting. I banned anyone discussing it. It destroyed my friend Pamela’s life. Utterly.”
Courtney explained she had been asked to contribute to the upcoming series – before turning her fury on British actress Lily.
She wrote: “Disgusting Behaviour HQ.
“Last week I was asked to approve using a rolling stone cover of mine / shot by mark seliger in this piece of s**t. That they had approved.
“I said ‘f**k no.’ shocked.
“Gentleman 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 f**k she is. #vile.”
Pamela herself has slammed the biopic, which is being made by I, Tonya, director, Craig Gillespie, branding it a “cheap, God-awful knock-off”.
