Pamela Des Barres

'Famous' Groupie Sues

Over Cosmetic Nightmare

0227_Pamela Des Barres
Infamous rock 'n roll groupie Pamela Des Barres claims her eyes were badly burned during a cosmetic skin treatment ... and now she's suing the doctors who allegedly botched the procedure.

According to the suit filed by Pamela -- best known for bedding huge rockers like Mick Jagger and her book "I'm With the Band" ... she went to American Medical Aesthetics and Wellness in L.A. for a treatment in September, 2011.

In the docs, Pamela claims "defective and dangerous" products were applied to her face ... causing "burning and scarring" to her eyes and resulting in a loss of vision. Further, the suit claims doctors told Pamela to leave without helping her or seeking emergency assistance.

Pamela's attorney James Wohl tells us Pamela's corneas were burned by the procedure -- and she is still getting treatment from multiple opthamologists.

By the way, Pamela's storied rock star conquests partly inspired Kate Hudson's character in the movie "Almost Famous."

Pamela is suing for damages and lost earnings.

"Lost Earnings?" What does an over-the-hill groupie earn?

Pamela used to go out with Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin and Keith Moon with "The Who" also. Like most women, she looked good when she was younger.

They didn't call her a "groupie" for no good reason. She must have been very likable to have been with all those super famous guys. Either that, or she was very talented and uninhibited in the sack. :)

I think anyone who experiences burns, scarring and vision loss would sue. If you're into old rock n roll you know who Pamela is, and she's pretty interesting and likable Don't put her down until you find out more about her.

You gotta ask yourself if she would have been uglier without cosmetic procedures. Tough call.

Something pathetic about a 64 year old woman who is known only for fvcking rock stars trying to make $$$$$ from her foolish desperate mistake. Ugly is as ugly does.

She was not the inspiration for the penny lane character in almost famous. Cameron Crowe has said time and time again He is friends with the real life penny lane and she was his inspiration. She exists and lives here in Portland.

when will people learn to stop f*king w their bodies? i'd love to keep my youthful look - but, the risk is just too great. i know that if i went in for some type of treatment, or alteration - i'd notice the slightest imperfection that would seem monumental compared to what i had before. i just wouldn't be able to handle it. i guess thats why so many peeps become plastic surgery addicts.
