Weeks after ending their 12-day marriage, Pamela Anderson‘s former husband Jon Peters is already engaged to another woman. Us Weekly reports the Hollywood producer has popped the question to Julia Bernheim. According to the outlet, the news was revealed while Neptune Wellness CEO Michael Cammarata “rang the NASDAQ Closing Bell on Thursday, February 20.” Jon Peters’ latest engagement comes less than three weeks after his split with the “Baywatch” actress following the surprise wedding in Malibu, CA on January 20.
Releasing a statement about their separation, Pamela Anderson told The Hollywood Reporter at the time, “I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union. 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.” Continuing her statement, the actress asked for privacy. “Life is a journey and love is a process. With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalization of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process. Thank you for respecting our privacy,” she continued.
Following their split, Us Weekly reported the duo actually broke up via text with Jon Peters allegedly telling Pamela Anderson, “This whole marriage thing … has scared me.” He continued by stating her famous lifestyle proved too much for him. “It made me realize that at 74 I need a simple quiet life and not an international love affair. Therefore, I think the best thing we can do is that I’m going to go away for a couple of days and maybe you need to go back up to Canada we did it. The world knows we did it and I think now we need to go our own separate ways,” he continued. “I hope that you can forgive me. … I love you … I want to be in your life forever.”
The outlet reported that Pamela Anderson responded by writing him back “I forgive you” with a kissing face emoji. While the duo tied the knot, they never actually obtained a marriage license. Besides their lifestyles not matching up, there were also accusations that the actress married Jon Peters for his money. Following the allegations, Pamela Anderson took to Instagram sharing a cryptic post about feeling “betrayed.” Posting a black and white snap of herself, she wrote, “We are all getting our share in this crazy world. As long as we are wrestling we are alive. As long as we recognize insanity we are sane. It is better to be betrayed than not to trust, better to be disappointed than not to love. Don’t ever run from pain, just face it allow it to be and it will pass. And we will have grown to the next level.”
