Britney Spears applauds Pamela Anderson and her sons.

Britney Spears took to social media to share her thoughts and support for Pamela Anderson and her sons, Brandon Thomas Lee and Dylan Jagger Lee, for being so supportive and encouraging towards their mother’s situation. The singer also compared her situation to that of a former Playboy model after Pamela Anderson’s Netflix documentary was recently released.

Britney stated in a now-deleted post that she admires Pamela Anderson, describing her as America's only sex icon at one time and still is. She went on to say that she admired her children, Brandon Thomas Lee and Dylan Lee, for standing up for her, referring to people trying to sell her story from the past, mentioning that they said why would people bring up things that happened 20 years ago if it messed up their mother, referring to the Hulu series and saying that he is correct.

The singer said that when she read about when her kids went on to say people shouldn’t have brought up the subject that brought their mother embarrassment and led her to go through a very dark period in her life, she was like, "Damn." Britney further said that she has had four documentaries about her in the past year with people she adored speaking about her past; that alone was almost as hard as what she went through in her past. Britney went on to say that at the age of 25, she was finally in a secret relationship and had a private life and that even if she was rebelling, it didn't make it right for her father, Jamie Spears, to claim she was his and take over her life for 15 years.

Britney wrote that she did more than enough in that time to make things better and mentioned a quote from her brother saying that time was really good for their family, pointing out that it was, but giving her way too much work while her father had meetings. The singer went ahead to say that she understands that she has spoken about it a lot, but 15 years is an extremely long time, and with that, Pamela Anderson gave her an understanding that people should be exactly where they are in that moment of their lives unless cruelty rules the world.

She asked in the post that does it make other people and her family subconsciously and secretly feel way better about themselves to embarrass her and bring up her past? Britney responded to the question herself, saying yes, absolutely yes, and adding that the way her past was portrayed in those documentaries was extremely embarrassing and she felt semi-illegal, but she concluded, like everyone else, that people die in the end, so they should chill out and let it go.

Pamela Anderson and her ex-husband Tommy Lee's elder son, Brandon Thomas Lee, who is also the producer of Pamela Anderson's Netflix documentary, "Pamela, a Love Story," told Access Hollywood on the red carpet that he has never met a woman as brave as his mother. He added that he thinks a lot of people would say that, but he genuinely means it, adding that Pamela Anderson has been a bulldog protecting him and his brother their whole lives, and he thinks that this documentary was a perfect opportunity for him to step up and be there and get the story right and showcase the real Pamela Anderson and their real family to the world.

Brandon has spoken out during the press tour for his mother's memoir, "Love, Pamela," about how his mother was wronged throughout her years' career, especially in the 1990s when she shot to star status on "Baywatch." Brandon shared during Variety cover story that his mother should receive a cut of "Baywatch" royalties. She was exploited, and the elder son added that it still feels strange to them that there has not yet been any kind of discussion with streaming platform Amazon or the "Baywatch" producers to ensure that their mother receives her fair share.

Britney Spears, on the other hand, has been vocal about her strained relationship with her two teenage sons in recent times, after her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, was chastised for offering press interviews about their famed pop star mother. Britney Spears has not kept back since her 13-year conservatorship ended, regularly posting about her familial relationships with her sister Jamie Lynn Spears and father Jamie Spears, whom she has alleged of "abusing" her during the conservatorship, which he supervised for a huge percentage of the 13 years.

In response to Britney Spears’ post, Pamela Anderson’s son, Brandon, commented under the post thanking her for her kind words adding that she and his mom have both deserved better.

"Pamela: A Love Story" is streaming on Netflix, and "Love, Pamela" is out now.
