Pam & Tommy’s first 3 episodes are now available on Hulu, and fans are eager to see how Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s love story and sex tape controversy concluded.
However, If you’re one of the few people on earth who hasn’t seen the infamous Pamela Anderson & Tommy Lee sex tape you are at the right place. Oh wait, we can’t post it here though. We can tell you where you can find it.
Pamela Anderson of Baywatch and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee met on New Year’s Eve in 1994 and married four days later after meeting again in Cancun six weeks later. Brandon Thomas and Dylan Jagger, their children, were born after they married.
Everything changed, however, when Rand Gautier (Seth Rogen), a former porn actor and electrician, took their secret honeymoon sex film after Tommy forgot to pay him for his job.
The tape was immediately distributed throughout the world because to the newly accessible internet, and it became a landmark in pop culture history.

What Happened to Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee After the Sex-Tape Leak?
They tried everything they could to prevent Pam and Tommy’s sex tape from leaking on the internet once it was released. They sought to get an injunction issued to prohibit anyone from showing the footage, but the courts dismissed their request.
According to Rolling Stone, Lee also dispatched Hells Angels to track down Gauthier, who had stolen the tape, and Uncle Miltie (Nick Offerman), the porn director who assisted him in distributing it on the internet.
As the tape progressed from a bootleg to a viral sensation, they sued a video distribution business, Internet Entertainment Group (IEG), and won a private deal.
IEG was permitted to keep making the tape available to its internet users as part of the settlement. According to Rolling Stone, the tape grossed an estimated $77 million in less than a year, and that is just genuine sales.
IEG, on the other hand, started selling the cassette for $15, prompting Pam and Tommy to file a copyright action in 1998. Pam and Tommy were awarded $750,000 in 2002 after winning their 1998 copyright infringement lawsuit against IEG, according to Entertainment Weekly. However, because IEG is no longer in operation, they are unlikely to collect the funds.
Pamela’s career suffered the most damage as a result of the sex video’s publication, whilst Tommy gained newfound prominence as a result of his involvement in the tape, an obvious contrast that is examined in Pam & Tommy.
Nick Offerman, who plays Uncle Miltie in Pam & Tommy and was involved in the early distribution of the video, told Newsweek that he enjoyed how the series was portrayed from Pam’s perspective and how she “becomes a bit of a feminist statement.”
He revealed: “I believe that getting the facts of the storey out will be pretty eye-opening. I believe that the world, to begin with, has a vast misunderstanding of the facts of the narrative.
“Because of our cynicism and superficiality, particularly the superficiality that we associate with Hollywood and stories like this, I believe we automatically assume the worst of people and believe that there was something salacious or mercenary going on, or that Tommy Lee and Pam Anderson were even involved [and not] purely the victims of a crime here.
“Then, as the tale progresses, I believe it will be eye-opening to observe how Pam Anderson is victimised by sexism and misogyny. It’ll act as a springboard for a slew of similar stories to follow. It serves as a reminder of how far we still have to go in terms of treating everyone equally when it comes to seeing them naked.”
Pam’s career was hurting, but behind the scenes, Pam and Tommy’s marriage was crumbling.
The stress of the sex tape compounded the troubles in their marriage, according to Lee in Mötley Crüe’s autobiography, The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.
He expressed himself as follows: “Pamela and I were constantly arguing. Trying to raise our children, maintain our jobs that occupied us, build a new relationship, and cope with the never-ending bombardment of nonsense in the media proved to be more difficult than we could have imagined.”
He was arrested for spousal abuse after striking Anderson in their home in early 1998. He was sentenced to six months in the Los Angeles County Jail, as well as mandated therapy and community work, in May 1998.
Pam finally divorced her husband in 1998. Marcus Schenkenberg, a model, became her engagement ring, but their relationship ended in 2001. Pam later married musician Kid Rock in July 2006, however the couple divorced in November of the same year, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.
Where Are Pam and Tommy Now?
Pam and Tommy have remained on different paths after rekindling their romance from 2008 to 2010.
Lee told Rolling Stone at the time: “We’ve only tried it 800 times, so let’s do it again. Pamela and the kids have taken up residence in my home. It’s fantastic. It is undeniably effective.”
Pam had married film producer Rick Salomon in Las Vegas just a year before their reunion. They split up in 2008, but Pam claimed in 2014 that she had remarried Salomon, however the couple divorced in April 2015.
Pam later dated Adil Rami, a French player, and then Jon Peters, a Hollywood producer. She married her bodyguard Dan Hayhurst in December 2020, however the couple divorced on January 21, 2022.
Anderson told People in 2015 of her romance with Tommy: “With him, I had lovely children. My children are grateful to have been born from genuine love. Everything else was something I was attempting to pull together.”
She said, ” “He was the one and only love of my life. We had a tumultuous start that was too much for both of us.”
Tommy, like Pam, has been married multiple times. He was previously married to Elaine Starchuk and then Heather Locklear, both of whom he divorced in 1993, before marrying Pam in 1995. He was engaged to model Bobbie Brown before meeting Pam.
Lee was engaged to dancer Mayte Garcia, Prince’s ex-wife, from 2002 to 2003 after his divorce with Pam in 1998. They eventually broke up. He was engaged to singer Sofia Toufa from 2014 till 2017, after dating her since 2009.
Lee proposed to his girlfriend, social media sensation Brittany Furlan, in February 2018. They tied the knot on February 14, 2019, and are still together.

Anderson has continued to act, most notably as Jessica Fox in Nicky Larson et le Parfum de Cupidon, Ann Williams in The Institute, and Captain Casey Jean in 2017’s Baywatch.
She’s also been on The Hills: New Beginnings, Dancing on Ice, Dancing With the Stars, and Big Brother Australia, among other reality shows.
In 2014, Lee and Mötley Crüe completed a farewell tour, and since then, he has pursued a solo career. In 2020, he released the album Andro, which included Post Malone, Shotty Horroh, and Mickey Avalon as guest vocalists.
In the year 2020, he played the devil in four episodes of Halloween in Hell, a musical horror podcast. Iann Dirr, 24kGoldn, and Machine Gun Kelly also appeared in the series.
Pam & Tommy’s first three episodes are now available on Hulu. The final five episodes will stream on Hulu every Wednesday and in some countries Thursday.
Rand Gauthier Sold The ‘Pam & Tommy’ Sex Tape
Gauthier was an electrician hired by Tommy who became enraged after not being paid for months of labour in the miniseries and in real life. After standing up to Tommy, Gauthier was finally dismissed. Tommy threatened him with a revolver as he sought to reclaim his tools.
Gauthier resolved to avenge Tommy by taking the safe from the Mötley Crüe drummer. The sex tape was inside, along with firearms and jewels that Gauthier planned to sell to collect the money Tommy owed him.
Gauthier had the brilliant idea of selling the cassette on the internet, and you know the rest very well.
Where is Rand Gauthier Now?
Gauthier apparently doesn’t feel terrible about revealing Tommy and Pam’s sex life to the public, as he stated in a 2014 Rolling Stone interview. Gauthier stated the tape was “nice” in the interview. “They’re in love and a couple, and they’re just having fun with each other, and I think that’s fantastic,” he said.
“I wish I had something like that,” Gauthier remarked, adding that he was “jealous.” Gauthier admitted that he occasionally tells people that he took the iconic sex tape, but that no one believes him.

It’s also unclear if he received a fair portion of the proceeds from the videos that were sold.
