Former 'Baywatch' star Pamela Anderson allegedly owes five construction firms over £690,000 in unpaid bills, prompting them to file legal claims
Pamela Anderson is being sued by five building firms over unpaid bills.
The former 'Baywatch' star allegedly owes various contractors over £690,000 for work carried out on her new home in Malibu, California.
But the 42-year-old actress has just £2,300 in available funds, and has been unable to pay the builders for over six months, forcing five companies to file legal claims.
In an email to one contractor, Pamela's business manager Lester Knispel admitted: "I told you that she could not afford anymore work."
One builder - who claims he is owed £20,000 - said: "No one has been paid for six months. She doesn't have any sense of reality. There are poor workers who have families to feed and she isn't doing anything to pay them."
Pamela bought the house for £850,000. Even though she has spent over £1 million renovating the mansion, it does not have a working sewage system or electrics.
Instead, the blonde beauty spent thousands on gold pool tiles, £33,000 sofas and a £110,000 sound system.
It is estimated she will need for spend another £600,000 to make the house habitable.
Until then, Pamela and her sons Brandon, 13, and Dylan, 11, will continue living in a trailer nearby.
