Pamela Anderson’s Husband of 12 Days Claimed Their Marriage Was About Money
Who knew Pamela Anderson would be headlining one of the most confusing (and engrossing) celebrity breakups of 2020.
Just 12 days after Anderson wed film producer Jon Peters, the actress and model revealed that she and her new husband were taking “some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another.”
Peters had a less diplomatic response to the split, telling Page Six that he “dropped everything” when Anderson asked him (over text) to get married. “It was kind of a dream come true even though I was engaged to someone else and the lady was moving in,” Peters said of his ex’s proposal.
He also insinuated that Anderson’s motivation to marry was money. “She had almost $200,000 in bills and no way to pay it so I paid it and this is the thanks I get. There’s no fool like an old fool,” he told the outlet.
Anderson’s camp told People that Peters’s claims are “ludicrous,” adding, “Despite Mr. Peters’ scurrilous and ongoing efforts to elicit a response from Ms. Anderson, she has no comment to provide and hopes he is well.”
People previously reported that Anderson and Peters’s brief marriage wasn’t actually legitimate, as a source revealed "legal paperwork for the marriage was never filed.”
Peters and Anderson have both, respectively, been married four times before. They first dated each other in the ‘80s after meeting at the Playboy Mansion.
Another People source claimed that the true issue with the marriage stemmed from the pair’s living situation. “Although they have known each other for more than 30 years, they had never lived together,” the source shared. “Living with someone, you truly get to know them. Pam’s a romantic, but she is also very independent … This all moved a bit fast, so they both agreed to put it off.”
