However, on Saturday, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that the pair had separated just 12 days after tying the knot. They did so before they had even filed for their marriage certificate, the legal proof that they had wed.
The source quoted Pamela, who announced her uncoupling from the 74-year-old former hairdresser and movie mogul with THR via a statement.
“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 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.”
Almost as quickly as the pair married, they apparently hastily reconsidered. However, this relationship has been going off and on for a long time. Jon and Pamela initially dated more than three decades ago after he spotted her at the Playboy Mansion when the now-52-year-old model and actress was just 19 years old.
She had recently relocated from Canada to Los Angeles at the time, proving the move to be a smart one since she was popular with Playboy, appearing on the magazine’s cover a total of 13 different times.
Counting her union with Jon, Pamela has been married a total of five times since she hit Hollywood. Her first husband was rock star Tommy Lee, who is the father to her two boys. She also married singer-songwriter Kid Rock, and poker pro Rick Salomon, whom she wed and divorced twice.
Jon has been married as many times as Pamela. He wed actress Lesley Ann Warren, but ended that 10-year union to start a love life with Barbra Streisand, to whom he never wed, but they carried on a 12-year affair. He was also married to Mindy Peters, Christine Forsythe-Peters, and Henrietta Zampitella.
One hint that things were not going smoothly occurred after the legendary Playboy model failed to hit up social media with her new husband in recent days. In fact, on Instagram on Friday night, the X-rated sensation posted a classic throwback image that showed her posing while riding a motorcycle in the nude. The caption hinted that she was being reflective of current events in her life.
