Pamela Anderson felt she rushed into the wedding and regretted her decision.
For most people, marriage is a life-long commitment. They hope to share their future with their partner and work out their marriage with love and hard work. However, some celebrity marriages have raised eyebrows. One such union was Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters' wedding. Before the world stopped talking about the wedding, there came the news of their divorce. Soon, the split became ugly with accusations and allegations from both sides.
According to People, Anderson married movie mogul Jon Peters on 20 Jan 2020 in a secret ceremony in Malibu. 12 days later on 1 February 2020, she shocked the world by announcing her split.
Following the news, the successful Hollywood producer told Page Six that the model had initially proposed to him through a text message. On receiving her message, Peters was so excited he decided to take an extreme step. Though he was engaged to someone who was already moving in with him, he ended it all to unite with the supermodel.
"Needless to say that when she texted me that she wanted 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," said the producer, according to Page Six.
He further went on to say that the model had scammed him just to get him to pay her debts. “I dropped everything for Pam. 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," said Peters, according to Page Six. However, Anderson had a different story to tell.
Sources stated, "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. Jon has pursued her for 30 years. They were texting while she was in India and agreed they’d have lunch.”
The gathering which was meant to be just a lunch gathering turned into a wedding after Jon proposed to her. "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,” said the source, according to Page Six.
According to Anderson, she immediately regretted her decision of getting married after joining Peters in Mailbu. She felt homesick and wanted to be at her ranch in Canada. Moreover, she felt her new husband was too controlling. "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 a source, close to the model.
The source further added, "Pamela respected him. 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.”
However, Peters denied the story and said that it was all fabricated, according to the Los Angele Times. He added, "If she meant controlling- I’ve paid … [her] bills since she was broke. I bought her a completely new wardrobe."
Peters even implied that he texted Anderson that their marriage was not going to work out. He texted her saying, "these past 9 days have been a beautiful amazing love fest. this whole marriage thing with lawyers, debt, and jazmin [sic] has scared me. it made me realize that at 74 I need a simple quiet life and not an international love affair.”
But an insider close to Anderson said she decided to call off the marriage because she “just needed to take a step back.”
The source added, "Although they have known each other for more than 30 years, they had never lived together. 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," according to People.
