Pamela Anderson divorcing two-time hubby Rick Salomon
Pamela Anderson and marriage still don’t seem to mix. The actress has reportedly filed for divorce from her once and future ex-husband, Rick Salomon.
Anderson went public in January with news that she and the film producer had remarried, despite the fact that their 2007 union fizzled after only two months and ended in an annulment in 2008.
The “Baywatch"-star-turned-activist filed for the split last Thursday, according to TMZ, which first reported the news.
That puts her in the ranks of Maria Shriver, Katie Holmes and Ashton Kutcher, all of whom quietly filed for a high-profile divorce -- in July 2011, June 2012 and December 2012 respectively -- on the last weekday before a long holiday weekend.
One detail revealed in the divorce documents, obtained by E! News: The couple got married Jan. 9, only two days before the bride explained her big new rock on the red carpet at a fundraiser for Sean Penn’s Haiti charity.
This will be the third divorce for Anderson, in addition to that annulment. The 37-year-old hottie was previously married to rockers Tommy Lee, the father of her two sons, and Kid Rock. The first marriage lasted about three years, while the second made it only three months.
It’ll be a second divorce for Salomon, 46, who has also racked up not one but two annulments (the other one was with actress Shannen Doherty). The “One Night in Paris” sex-tape star has two daughters with his first wife, Elizabeth Daily.
Anderson’s manager did not immediately reply to a request for comment. The actress, however, posted a stream-of-consciousness poem on Facebook shortly after the divorce news broke Tuesday. Sections of the lengthy piece, which she said she wrote a week ago, seem to reflect a frustrated state of mind.
A couple of excerpts: “I love being in love -- but expectations, / make it impossible to be happy- / or satisfied... / I’ve tried... so hard.. / maybe it’s not in fashion-- / Tradition ... just seemed so romantic..., / I guess it’s a used up ideal -- / for the old fashion... / not modern...,” and, “What have I done...? / I knew it was wrong from the start-- / primitive -- base instinct.. / Never marry a rich man...”
