Britney Spears has praised Pamela Anderson's sons for defending her when people tried to sell her story.
In a since-deleted Instagram post, the Hold Me Closer singer gushed over the Baywatch star and empathised with her privacy invasion experiences.
Britney, 41, praised Anderson for being a sex symbol at the height of her fame, and added Pamela was "still" very much a sex symbol years later.
"I'm such a fan of Pamela Anderson... She was the only sex icon at one time in America and she still is," Britney began. "I really respect the fact that her children stood up for her relating to the fact that people were trying to sell her story from the past."
Pamela's two children - Brandon and Dylan Lee - reportedly supported their mother during the release of the 2022 miniseries Pam & Tommy, which investigated how the actress and her then-husband Tommy Lee's sex tape was leaked in 1995.
"They said 'why the hell bring up things that happened 20 years ago if that really messed up my mom?'" Britney continued in her post. "So Pamela gave me an understanding that people should support you exactly where you are in that moment of your life... unless cruelty rules the world ???"
Britney does not have such a relationship with her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, whom she has not seen for months.
She has repeatedly accused her family of treating her poorly during her 13-year conservatorship from 2008 to 2021.
"I mean, does it make other people and my family subconsciously and secretly feel WAAAAY better about themselves to embarrass me and bring up my past? The answer is yes!" she added.
