- Pamela Anderson’s ex-husband, Jon Peters, told Variety that he left her $10 million in his will.
- The actress and film producer were married for 12 days before splitting in 2020.
- Peters also told Variety the money is there “whether she needs it or not.”
Pamela Anderson’s ex-husband of 12 days, film producer Jon Peters, said he’s leaving her $10 million in his will “whether she needs it or not.”
Anderson and Peters spoke with Variety’s Tatiana Siegel for a cover story published Thursday about their brief nuptials. According to the outlet, Anderson first met Peters at the Playboy mansion in 1989 and began living at his estate in Los Angeles, California, where he showered her with lavish gifts.
The pair reunited decades later and wed in a private ceremony on January 20, 2020, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The couple split on February 1 of the same year, with Anderson telling CNN that the union was never technically formalized.
Peters told Variety this week that even though he and Anderson aren’t together anymore, he still loves her and left her a large sum of money in his will.
“I will always love Pamela, always in my heart. As a matter of fact, I left her $10 million in my will. And she doesn’t even know that. Nobody knows that. I’m just saying it for the first time with you. I probably shouldn’t be saying it,” he said. “So that’s for her, whether she needs it or not.”
Anderson also spoke of her love for Peters, noting that he’s been “a huge influence” in her life.
Variety also shared excerpts of Anderson’s upcoming memoir “Love, Pamela,” which is slated for release on January 31. The “Baywatch” star’s Netflix documentary, titled “Pamela, a Love Story,” will be available on the streaming service the same day.
In one selection from the memoir, Anderson said she saw Jack Nicholson having a threesome at the Playboy mansion, recalling the moment she accidentally walked in on the actor with two women.
“They were all giggling and kissing up against the wall, sliding all over each other. I walked by to use the mirror, bending over the sink to fix my lip gloss. Trying not to look, but I couldn’t help myself and caught his eye in the reflection,” she wrote. “I guess that got him to the finish line, because he made a funny noise, smiled and said, ‘Thanks, dear.'”
Anderson said the moment was part of an era of “complete freedom” in Hollywood.
“It was full of artists, philanthropists, intellectuals, chivalry, beautiful women,” she said. “It was really an experience.”
