Pamela Anderson and movie producer Jon Peters have called it quits just 12 days after getting married.
“I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon’s and my union,” Anderson said in a statement. “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,” Anderson, 52, added.
The former Baywatch actress and Peters, who dated more than 30 years ago, reunited and tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Malibu on Jan. 20.
Peters, 74, a producer of 2018’s A Star Is Born, told the Hollywood Reporter after the ceremony: “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.
“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.”
Anderson also gushed about Peters to the outlet, saying: “Jon is the original ‘bad boy’ of Hollywood — no one compares — I love him deeply like family.”
The pair began dating in the ’80s, and Peters proposed to Anderson, who turned him down at the time.
The wedding marked the fifth for Anderson and Peters.
