Pamela Anderson's mother is heartbroken over finding out that the B.C. model and actress was raped and molested as a child.

"This whole thing is a complete shock. This is a terrible, dramatic thing to have happened to Pamela and if she went through that all by herself it is horrible," Carol Anderson told The Daily Mail.

"I am kind of numb over it all, I sat there with my mouth open when I found out."

The former "Baywatch" star made headlines earlier this month when she told the world about her traumatic experiences.

"Despite loving parents, I was molested from age six to 10 by my female babysitter," said Anderson, who grew up in Ladysmith then later moved to Comox.

Anderson, now 46, said that when she was attacked at a friend's boyfriend's house when she was 12. "The boyfriend's older brother decided he would teach me backgammon which led into a back massage which led into rape."

In Grade 9, her first boyfriend "decided it would be funny to gang rape me with six of his friends," she alleged.

Anderson's mother, Carol Anderson, 65, got an email from her daughter shortly after the speech in Cannes telling her what happened, reported The Province. Later they spoke on the phone.

“She said, ‘Mom, I want to make sure you don’t feel guilty,'" Carol told the newspaper. "But of course you feel guilty when something like this happens to your child.”

RCMP said they are "reaching out" to Pamela to discuss the allegations.
