What is Pamela Anderson net worth?
Pamela Anderson’s net worth took a hit over the years after several failed marriages, financial missteps and a sex tape scandal in the 1990s.
Anderson played the role of Casey Jean (CJ) Parker on Baywatch and in a 2018 interview on BayWatch TV, Anderson said, “I’m happy (Baywatch is) still playing all over the world. The character is me.
“I feel like I’ve moved from Baywatch to where I am now. It’s all a blur in the middle.”
But Anderson’s financial troubles began in 1995 when she married Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
Their marriage resulted in a leaked sex tape that further launched Lee’s career but tainted Anderson’s.
According to the Washington Post, although the couple sued the person who distributed the sex tape, it was too late and they had made $77 million in profits.
Lee and Anderson’s marriage quickly fell apart, but Anderson’s financial struggles were far from over.
She racked up millions in real estate debt and unpaid taxes, which eventually led her to sell her house and move into a trailer park.
According to the Los Angeles Times, she eventually put her trailer on the market for $1.75 million and returned home to Canada.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, at the height of her career, Anderson earned $6.6 million per season on Baywatch, but today she has a net worth of $20 million.
