It’s a well-known fact that Hollywood marriages have a widespread reputation for being short-lived. The few stars who stay married to one another for multiple years, let alone decades, are the anomaly in a town where it’s not uncommon for unions to last mere months, or now in Pamela Anderson’s case, days.
Just 12 short days after their secret marriage ceremony that took place in Malibu, California, a source has told Hollywood Reporter the very newlyweds Pamela Anderson and Movie Mogul Jon Peters are sadly calling it quits on their marriage.
Believe it or not, this was Anderson’s fifth marriage, and though nothing is legally official yet, Hollywood Reporter is reporting that nothing actually was ever legal. A source close to the ‘Baywatch’ star shared that the duo—who actually dated for the first time 30 years ago—had not yet filed the legal paperwork for a marriage certificate after their wedding ceremony in Malibu, which included Peters’ three daughters and his ex-wife, in a sweet show of how people truly can remain friends after breakups.
The pair were clearly in love, with Peters telling THR some very sweet details about his feelings for Anderson. He said: “Pamela has never seen her full potential as an artist. She has yet to shine in a real way. There is much more to her than meets the eye, or I wouldn’t love her so much. There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but — for 35 years — I’ve only wanted Pamela. She makes me wild — in a good way. She inspires me. I protect her and treat her the way she deserves to be treated.”
Anderson has some famous ex-husbands, perhaps most notably Tommy Lee of the iconic rock band Mötley Crüe, in which he played bass as well as being a founding member. Anderson has already issued a statement regarding the sudden dissolution of her ‘marriage’ to Peters, saying: “We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another.”
Perhaps these two will ride out these rocky waters and move forward together, but things sound pretty uncertain at this time.
For his part, Peters is a famous Hollywood producer who has been behind such smash hits as A Star is Born, Wild Wild West, and Money Train. In an ironic and funny twist of fate, Peters _also_had four prior marriages, so both Anderson and Peters were each other’s fifth marriages. Only time will tell if they’ll re-kindle their romance, but looking back on Peters’ super-sweet words about Anderson, we are holding out for a chance that these two longtime lovebirds end up happy together.
