Pamela Anderson: The Quest For Love
Hollywood icon Pamela Anderson shocked us all when she split from her Hollywood producer husband Jon Peters after 12 days of marriage. Despite her blossoming popularity, her love life hasn't found as much success as her other endeavors. Let's dig into the article and find out more about this star's romances.
TOMMY LEE - THE ROCKY LOVE STORY
Tommy Lee and Pamela made the perfect Rock n Roll couple. She was the stunning blonde Baywatch babe while he was the tattooed rock star. The two met during a night out on the town at a club called Sanctuary on New Year's Eve in 1994.
The actress sent Lee a drink and he ended up approaching her. Of course, they hit it off and got lost in conversation; which ended in Pamela handing the rocker her number. But, the model was extremely hard to get to for almost 6 weeks as she was always too busy to meet with Lee.
TOMMY FOUND HIS CINDERELLA
When she asked Tommy to visit her at Hotel Nikki, she was nowhere to be found when he got there. During the time, there were no cell phones so, "I called the hotel every five minutes until they began to pity me ... I left messages at her pad, at her friends' houses, everywhere. I was hunting her down like a little stalker," Lee shared.
Eventually, he tracked her down and in February 1995, the couple got hitched in an intimate ceremony on the beach. "Instead of wedding bands, we went for something more permanent: Tattoos of each other's names around our fingers," Tommy Lee said. Everything happened so quickly for the couple.
THEIR MARRIAGE WAS MET WITH SOME CHALLENGES
At the time, Pam stated, "It was just instant, mind-blowing animal attraction. He's everything I've ever wanted in somebody." The starlet got pregnant soon after they married but she suffered a miscarriage and it left Lee distraught. But then they had their firstborn son Brandon in 1996 however, their ambitions to grow their family had a downside.
"Pamela and I got busy having kids so quickly that we never gave ourselves a chance to build a solid relationship. I asked her much later, 'Why didn't we work on our relationship more?'" he shared. "'We couldn't,' she replied. 'I was pregnant the whole time.'"
IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE
The arrival of their second son Dylan caused an even bigger rift between the two. Tommy recalls feeling "non-existent" because Pam was focused on the kids. He also added that he was, "Unable to step back and see the situation from any reasonable perspective, I turned into a whiny, needy little brat."
As their relationship became more volatile, their marriage could not survive the tough times. So, they got a divorce in 1998. This decision was certainly for the better as the love between them had begun to fade away. But, it wouldn't be the last time the couple gave it try, more on that later!
THE REBOUND ENGAGEMENT WITH MARCUS SCHEKENBERG
The Blonde and Blonder actress is a sucker for love and as such, she's been struck by cupid a couple of times. Not long after the split from Lee, Anderson enjoyed a brief engagement with the model Marcus Schenkenberg. A year later, the couple called it quits, Pam stated that she was looking for something different, with a little more passion.
THE ERA OF KID ROCK
Pam found love with another rock star shortly after her time with Marcus concluded in 2001. The couple became engaged in 2002 however, they ended things before they were set to get hitched. Not long after that, the chemistry drew them back together and they married on a yacht in St. Tropez in July 2006.
After their romantic reunion, Pam reportedly suffered a miscarriage which Kid Rock claims to be false. 4 months after the pair wed, Kid filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. However, reports suggested that the film Borat may have been the reason behind the couples' split. Apparently, the rocker was not happy about Pam's appearance in the movie.
BORAT IS THE REASON THE COUPLE SPLIT
The creator and actor behind Borat Sacha Baron Cohen revealed that he spoke to Anderson about Kid's reaction to the film. “How did it go? What did he think?” Anderson then texted back, "He's getting divorced," Baron Cohen shared. When he asked her why, Anderson responded, “The movie.” Pam and Kid Rock were divorced just a few weeks after that exchange.
Kid was unhappy about a lot of things in his marriage with Anderson. She didn't get along with his mother and sister and the couple also didn't agree on how to spend their money. According to Kid Rock, "I knew the stove was hot, and I wanted to put my hand on it."
HUBBY NO. 3: RICK SALOMON
Anderson took another shot at marriage when she married her longtime friend Rick Salomon. Not long after her divorce from Kid Rock. The couple got hitched in Las Vegas with their family and friends in attendance. In 2008, the marriage was annulled, Anderson wanted to split from her husband due to his issues.
In 2014, the two decided to get married once again. But that too didn't work out as they had hoped, they got divorced a year later. As recent as last year, word is that Salomon wanted to get back together with Pam and her kids were 100% in support of it.
THE KIDS THINK RICK IS THE RIGHT GUY
A close source told the Daily Mail: "They said to her, "look mum there's every sign he's still in love with you, he still lives in the house you designed, you could move back in". Even though things didn't work out with him and Pamela - he never stepped away from being that father figure. "

It’s awesome. It’s definitely working.”
