Pamela Anderson has vowed to resolve her ''embarrassing'' financial problems and settle her $493,144 tax bill soon
Pamela Anderson is "embarrassed" by her tax problems.
The former 'Baywatch' actress - who was named by the California Franchise Tax Board as owing $493,144 in unpaid taxes - insists the situation was "out of her control" and claimed to be doing her best to resolve it.
Alongside a link to the Gloria Gaynor hit 'I Will Survive', she tweeted: "I'm not trying to avoid any tax obligation. Certain events occurred, outside of my control which caused this temporary but embarrassing situation. All of my tax obligations will be resolved in the very near future. Love Pamela."
The sum the 42-year-old star owes is mostly in Personal Income Tax and dates back to April 2009.
It is not the only money problem facing the 'Dancing with the Stars' contestant - she is also set to have a legal battle with US clothing firm Maggy London International who have filed legal proceedings over the name of Pamela's own fashion line.
The company claims the actress ignored their demands to change the name of her A*Muse clothing label, launched earlier this year - insisting it infringes the trademark of their Muse clothing line, which they registered in 2002.
Last year, it was rumoured Pamela was in financial difficulties, after building companies said she owed them $1 million for renovations made on her house in Malibu, California.
However, the blonde beauty issued a statement at the time rubbishing the claims.
She said: "I'm financially secure. It is true that I am in a dispute with some of the contractors working on my home.
"My lawyers are reviewing the work done to see if the bills are fair. If they are, they'll be paid. If they aren't, they won't be."
