“I was thinking of calling Springsteen to see where he’d rather the money raised go — I am sure it would be to the poor kids for whom it was intended.”
Pamela Anderson is still fuming about charity money being taken from impoverished French kids to rebuild Notre Dame — and now she hopes Bruce Springsteen will step in.
The former “Baywatch” star boiled over at Tuesday’s Olympique Marseille fund-raiser for poverty-stricken children — organizers auctioned a Springsteen guitar for $112,000, but rather than give the proceeds to homeless children in the southern French city of Marseille, decided the cash would go to the gutted Paris cathedral.
Anderson, who railed on Twitter that Notre Dame already had $1 billion pledged in donations, told Page Six Thursday, “I was angry — the church already has all they need. And knowing the conditions of the many troubled youths in Marseille, it seemed that 100,000 euro for Bruce Springsteen’s guitar could have gone to the local children and to the homeless.”
Adding that Springsteen had likely donated the guitar in the first place for Marseille’s underprivileged kids, “I was thinking of calling Springsteen to see where he’d rather the money raised go — I am sure it would be to the poor kids for whom it was intended.”
Olympique Marseille — a top-tier French soccer club — didn’t reply directly to Anderson’s angst, but said nearly $500,000 was raised for local kids.
Bruce’s rep didn’t get back to us.
