A controversial French chef who was Pamela Anderson’s associate in her short-lived “sexy vegan” restaurant venture near Saint-Tropez faces a court hearing for insolvency on Monday.
Anderson announced that she was ending her involvement in the pop-up eatery, ‘La Table du Marché by Pamela,’ on Wednesday, only eight days after it opened.
It emerged that the chef, Christophe Leroy, who also ran another Saint-Tropez restaurant, Les Moulins de Ramatuelle, had financial problems and allegedly failed to pay staff.
Mr Leroy, 53, declined to comment. His lawyer, Thierry Fradet, told Le Parisien newspaper: “The numerous unpaid bills are ; explained by the administrative closure of the Moulins de Ramatuelle last summer.”
He added: “Everyone will be paid in the very near future.”
Pamela Anderson‘s dream of having her own vegan restaurant is shattered.
Anderson, 50, announced the opening of her “sexy” vegan restaurant, La Table du Marché by Pamela, on July 4, but merely eight days later, she shared that she’s backing out.
The St-Tropez restaurant was initially meant to be a collaboration with one of her favorite chefs, Christophe Leroy, but the star wrote on her website Wednesday, “Due to circumstances out of my control-I have to remove my name from the collaboration with Christophe Leroy.”
“I cannot condone the mistreatment of staff or complete lack of respect,” she wrote on her website. “I’m extremely disappointed in this missed opportunity but will keep finding creative ways to help animals and vulnerable people all over the world.”
Her rep would not elaborate on the situation.

PAMELA ANDERSON ensured all eyes were on her as she arrived in a jaw-dropping outfit at the opening of her new restaurant today.
The Baywatch star certainly dressed to impress as she wowed onlookers in a plunging white number which resembled a wedding gown.
Parading her mesmerising curves in the gorgeous garden setting, the busty bombshell flaunted extreme cleavage as she posed up a storm at her new vegan eatery named La Table du Marché by Pamela, which is based in the south of France.
But, the 50-year-old was extremely close to showing off a little more than intended as her famous large assets almost spilled out of the daring number.
The sexy siren teamed the floor-length frock with a with a flower headdress and matched her environmentally friendly theme by going barefoot for the evening.
The actress wore her blonde locks in loose waves and amped up the glamour with a touch of pink lipgloss and heavy eye make-up.
However, Pamela wasn’t the only one giving guests an eyeful as dancers pranced around completely naked in just a pair of high-heels.
Fortunately for those eating, the women – who left absolutely nothing to the imagination – covered up their modesty with nipple covers.
Despite the eatery’s grand opening, Pamela would have no doubt been disappointed that President Emmanuel Macron appeared to have been a no show after she publicly invited him.
The animal activist’s pop-up restaurant is in joint-operation with chef Christophe Leroy and it will be open every evening for 50 days.
