Pamela Anderson and husband Jon Peters have parted ways less than two weeks after the pair tied the knot in a secret wedding, according to Us Weekly.
The Baywatch alum, 52, released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday, February 1 stating, “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 one another.” She added, “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.”
A source close to the situation told Us that is was Peters, 74, who pulled that plug on their relationship and that the two never actually got a marriage license.
Pamela and Jon, who each have been married four times before, met in the 80s at the Playboy mansion. Jon played a crucial role in the start of the actress’s career, which included paying for voice, dance and acting lessons. Jon even helped Pamela land her first television role on Home Improvement and later on Baywatch.
Jon gushed about his then-wife during an interview with THR a day after their wedding saying, “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.”
The A Star Is Born producer added, “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.”
Prior to Jon, Pamela was previously married to Tommy Lee, Kid Rock and Rick Salomon, twice.
