Pamela Anderson stormed out of a gala this week when $112,000 earmarked for poor French children went to fire-ravaged Notre Dame cathedral instead.
The “Baywatch” star said she was at Tuesday’s Olympique Marseille fundraiser to support poverty-stricken children — when organizers auctioned off a big ticket item to benefit the Gothic cathedral.
“Surely the children suffering in Marseille could have used the 100,000 € more than the church that has already received over a billion in donations by billionaires,” the actress fumed on Twitter Wednesday.
“I hope they will reconsider and give where it is needed,” Anderson continued. “To the community here in Marseille where it was intended. And would go much further in making lives better.”
The 51-year-old blond bombshell was at the gala with her boyfriend Adil Rami, a defender on the Olympique Marseille team, one of France’s most decorated soccer clubs.
Olympique Marseille didn’t reply directly to Anderson’s gripes, but told AFP approximately $490,119 was raised for local kids that night.
Donations to help rebuild Notre Dame have topped $1 billion after the Gothic gem was damaged by a massive blaze this month.
