The 53-year-old model has decided to take herself off Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and admits she feels "free" now she has decided to leave the platforms.

Posting to her Instagram account, she said: "This will be my last post on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I’ve never been interested in social media. And now that I'm settled into the life Im genuinely inspired by reading and being in nature. I am free. Thanks for the love. Blessings to you all. Let's hope you find the strength and inspiration to follow your purpose and try not to be seduced by wasted time (sic)"

Meanwhile, Pamela previously branded social media as a "playground for shamers".

The 'Baywatch' star wrote: "This social media world is a playground for shamers. It takes no thought or time to hurt people. People are “un-evolving” and less and less mature to think about or consider their swift and damaging remarks. The damage is done in a typed message in a private space - a bedroom, bathroom basement, desk or train- who knows? and It takes only seconds - the bully on the playground is multiplied by thousands- There is little privacy - no parenting - no teaching in this area. (sic)"

Pamela then continued by saying it would be a "waste of energy" to respond to hateful comments spread by trolls online, and says she’s learned "not to look" at what people say about her.

She added: "While we all read our comments and are happy when we receive praise and devastated when someone is mean. And we want to defend ourselves. It’s a waste of energy to engage - it would be a full time job. I prefer not to look. But I’ve learned that then (even back then) - your image can get away from you. It can negatively effect your career. Nobody is a cartoon character. We all have imperfect lives, pasts, things were embarrassed of or want to remain private. (sic)"
