Additionally, she tells how the stolen sex tape ruined her marriage life. It put immense pressure on the couple, finally leading to their divorce.

Anderson writes, “My relationship with Tommy may have been the only time I was ever truly in love,”

Pamela met Lee at a New Year party in a club on December 31, 1994. Tommy was hanging out with his friends when a waitress suddenly gave him a shot of Goldschläger, which was from Pamela.

Within three months, Tommy popped the question to which she agreed. They married on February 19, 1995, on a beach in Cancun.

In the summer of 1995, the pair went for a honeymoon trip to Lake Mead, where they filmed their intimate moments.

Rand Gauthier, an electrician fired from the renovation project and looking for revenge on the couple, stole their tape in October 1995.

Pamela writes in her memoir, “It ruined lives, starting with our relationship — and it’s unforgivable that people, still to this day, think they can profit from such a terrible experience, let alone a crime.”

As a result, it put extra attention and unwanted stress on the couple, and she miscarried in 1995 as a result of it. However, the couple had two sons Brandon Thomas Lee in 1996 and Dylan Jagger Lee in 1997.

Because of the video, they started having quarrels. In 1998, police arrested Lee on spousal assault charges granting Anderson an emergency order of protection.
