“I pray Tommy gets the help he needs,” she writes in a statement to TMZ, which she has posted on her website. “His actions are desperate and humiliating. He is a disaster spinning out of control. And he is not acting like a father. But this is nothing new.
“My sons have made every attempt to help him in recent months… I feared things might escalate, but knew this might be what it took to heal old wounds… We have all tried to protect him and help him for too long, hoping he’d look after himself better…”
Pamela demands she wants to converse with Tommy until the point that he looks for directing in recovery, including she completely bolsters her child.
“I stand beside my son who acted out of self-defense and was scared for his life,” she continues. “Nobody understands the lifetime of disappointment this man has brought our family. Consistently the centre of sadness, drama and confusion. And unfortunately he has made this private matter very public.
“I have always tried only to set record straight. Trying to paint him as not a bad guy. Just one who is human and made mistakes. He still cannot handle the guilt about his abusive behavior and has never taken responsibility for what he has done. Let’s hope this will be his saving grace…”
