Pamela’s 12-day marriage to Jon Peters was supposed be lunch

The two most consistent things in Pamela Anderson’s life, outside of environmental and animal activism, are marriage (she’s had five) and the ability to surprise.

In 1995, the actress married Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee 96 hours after she met him. After a notorious sex tape and two kids, they were divorced three years later. That freed her up to wed Kid Rock (2006-2007), followed up by two broken unions to the same man, party-boy poker player Rick Salomon (2007-2008; 2014-2015).

And on Jan. 20, the 52-year-old stunned the world when, out of the blue, she married film producer Jon Peters, 74.

Even more shocking: the announcement 12 days later that the “marriage” — which took place at a secret ceremony in Malibu, California, that included her sons, Dylan Lee, 22, and Brandon Thomas Lee, 23 — was over.

“Pamela had just spent a month in India on an Ayurvedic cleanse, to start the new decade off fresh. She was doing constant meditation and yoga. She came back very open,” said a source close to the couple. “Jon has pursued her for 30 years. They were texting while she was in India and agreed they’d have lunch.”

But Anderson doesn’t operate at the speed of most people.

“The day she returned, Jon invited family and friends [over for lunch] and proposed to her. He had a friend ‘officiate.’ Essentially, it was a sweet ceremony, but ultimately, [no license] was filed,” the close source said.

Almost immediately after joining Peters in Malibu, Anderson had regrets.

“She was homesick for her ranch in Canada. It’s a sprawling waterfront compound in Ladysmith, British Columbia,” said the close source.

And then there was the matter of being her own woman.

“It was important to Pamela she stay independent, financially speaking. But Jon’s as controlling as he’s creative, and he did not respond well to her autonomy,” said the close source.

“Pamela respected him,” the close source added. “He treated her like a princess. She felt she was ready to be married. It all felt right. Maybe even a sign, a gift from God after her monthlong cleanse. She was vulnerable, and she accepted his proposal. It was only supposed to be lunch.”

Anderson, who grew up in British Columbia, shot to fame as a Playboy Playmate in 1990, followed by a recurring role on the sitcom “Home Improvement” that often found her dressed in Daisy Duke cut-offs. Her next character’s costume was even skimpier — and more iconic: that red tank-style swimsuit she wore on “Baywatch” from 1992 to 1997.

But she quickly became as famous for her relationships as her career, linked to a litany of Hollywood men: actor Scott Baio, “Real World” cast member Eric Nies, “Baywatch” co-star David Charvet, “Lois & Clark” star Dean Cain, Poison rocker Bret Michaels, model Marcus Schenkenberg and surfer Kelly Slater, to name a few of the guys she didn’t actually marry.

She also reportedly dated Peters — who has producer credits on such blockbusters as “Rain Man,” “Flashdance” and “Caddyshack” — in the ’80s, although an insider says that relationship was not as it’s been portrayed. In January, Peters had told The Hollywood Reporter that he and Pam lived together 30 years ago.

“Some of these stories are not wholly accurate,” said the insider. “Jon has a penchant for hyperbole. For a few months, she lived in a spare house he had in LA Eventually, things got uncomfortable and she left. They stayed friends.”

So much so, Peters came to Anderson’s rescue when she and Tommy Lee split following a brawl in which, Lee wrote in the 2001 biography “The Dirt,” he kicked her in the rear and called her a “f–king bitch.” (Lee pleaded no contest to felony spousal battery and was sentenced to six months in prison. The couple reportedly, reunited and split two more times.)

“When Pamela and Tommy broke up [the first time], Jon had offered help,” said the insider. “He hid Pamela — along with her sons and both her parents — on his ranch in Aspen.”

And Peters allegedly never lost his longing for Anderson.

“He never ever gave up on Pam and I’m not sure he has now. He will try to woo her back,” said a friend of the producer. “It won’t work. But he won’t stop trying. Every woman he’s ever been with looks a lot like her.”

The close source agrees that a reconciliation is out of the question: “Pamela dodged a bullet. She was very uncomfortable after finding out certain things. I can tell you she didn’t like learning of his sexual harassment allegations and subsequent payouts.”

Jon Peters Broke Up With Pamela Anderson Over Text

Pamela Anderson only spent five days with Jon Peters before he called off their marriage with a text message, Us Weekly exclusively confirms.

The model, 52, spent half of the 11 days they were married away from the movie producer, 74, at her house in Canada, and they never completed official paperwork to legalize their union. Then, Peters sent a text message to his new bride calling things off.

The text described their “beautiful amazing love fest” but read, “This whole marriage thing … has scared me.”

Peters wrote, “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. I hope that you can forgive me.”

During their short marriage, the couple were only together for four-and-a-half days after tying the knot on January 20 at Shutters on the Beach hotel in Santa Monica.

An insider says that after the wedding, they stayed at Peters’ house until January 24, and Anderson later flew to Canada. The former Baywatch star then went to Los Angeles on January 29. The next day, Peters sent his message ending their relationship. Anderson flew to Canada once more on January 31.

“Jon has spent his lifetime producing movies and has amassed a sizable fortune, which is for his kids,” a source tells Us. “He realized that marrying Pam could affect that and there was no way he was prepared to take that risk.”

The A Star Is Born producer ended his text to the former Playboy Playmate by saying he still wanted her to play a role in a movie he is putting together called Private Dancer.

He added: “I love you, Jon. I want to be in your life forever.”

Anderson simply responded, “I forgive you” with a face-throwing-a-kiss emoji.

This was the fifth marriage for both. The animal activist was previously wed to Tommy Lee from 1995 to 1998, Kid Rock from 2006 to 2007 and Rick Salomon from 2007 to 2008 and again from 2014 to 2015. The former hairdresser, meanwhile, was formerly married to Henrietta Zampitella, actress Lesley Ann Warren and fellow producers Christine Forsyth-Peters and Mindy Peters. He has three children.

Inside Pamela Anderson’s 12-Day Marriage

Pamela Anderson‘s marriage to film producer Jon Peters is over just 12 days after their secret wedding.

A source close to the former couple tells PEOPLE Anderson “just needed to take a step back” in deciding to split.

“Although they have known each other for more than 30 years, they had never lived together,” says the source. “Living with someone, you truly get to know them. Pam’s a romantic, but she is also very independent.”

Adds the source, “This all moved a bit fast, so they both agreed to put it off.”

Anderson and Peters married on Jan. 20, with the Baywatch later announcing on Feb. 1 to The Hollywood Reporter that they had decided to split.

“I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union,” the actress and activist, 52, said. “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. 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 told THR that the couple had not yet filed the legal paperwork for a marriage certificate after their wedding.

A rep for Anderson did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

News of the split came just eight days after Anderson posted her first photo of she and Peters, 74, as a married couple to her Instagram Stories. In the photos, Anderson was beaming in the black and white shot, smiling next to Peters, who wore shades.

A day after their nuptials, Anderson’s publicist told PEOPLE, “They are very much in love and were married yesterday.”

The two first met in the mid-’80s while at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy mansion and began dating after their encounter.

“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,” Peters told THR after the nuptials. “”here 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,” he continued.

Anderson was previously married to Tommy Lee, with whom she shares sons Brandon, 23, and Dylan, 22. The two were married from 1995 to 1998 and had a tumultuous marriage, in which Lee spent six months in the Los Angeles County Jail for spousal abuse.

The actress later married and divorced Kid Rock in 2006. Then she married and divorced producer Rick Solomon twice — in 2007 and 2013. Both marriages to Solomon dissolved in less than a year.

Peters, who produced both Barbra Streisand’s A Star Is Born in 1976 and the remake in 2018 with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, was previously married to actress Lesley Ann Warren and producer Christine Forsyth-Peters.

He also had a 12-year romance with Streisand when he met her as a hairdresser before A Star Is Born, according to THR.
