Canadian Police Investigating Pamela Anderson's Sex Abuse Claims

Police in Canada have launched an investigation into sex abuse allegations made by Pamela Anderson during an appearance in Cannes, France last week (ends18May14).

The Baywatch star stunned guests at the launch of The Pamela Anderson Foundation by detailing the horrific sexual assaults she suffered as a child and in her teens.

Anderson had previously revealed she was raped when she was 12 years old, but she went on to describe how she was also allegedly molested by a female babysitter at the age of six and gang-raped as a teen by a group of young men.

Police in Anderson's hometown of Ladysmith in British Columbia have now confirmed they are investigating her claims and have requested a meeting with the star.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (Rcmp) spokesperson Corporal Darren Lagan tells Canada's CBC News, "We are aware of the recent statements made by Ms. Anderson at an event in Cannes, France. Given the nature of the allegations, an investigator with the Ladysmith Rcmp is in the process of reaching out to Ms. Anderson to discuss this matter with her directly."

Meanwhile, the actress' mother, Carol Anderson, has admitted she had no idea that her daughter had suffered such traumatic experiences.

Speaking to Dailymail.co.uk, she says, "This whole thing is a complete shock. This is a terrible, dramatic thing to have happened to Pamela and if she went through that all by herself it is horrible.

"I am kind of numb over it all, I sat there with my mouth open when I found out. My husband Barry and I always felt we were there all the time for the kids so it's just terrible to hear this now."

Carol reveals that Anderson emailed her after the speech, but she is yet to speak to her daughter in person about the claims.
