Pamela Anderson has been a bit all over the place when it comes to her marriage to Rick Salomon. They’ve been married a few times, they split up again last summer before getting back together a few months later and now they’re ACTUALLY divorcing again (I think?). Also, things have been kicked up a notch because Pam has been forced to seek a restraining order against Rick because he’s an abusive asshole and she’s afraid for her well-being.
The temporary order, filed Friday, will hold until the court hearing scheduled for April 3, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.
In the docs, Anderson, 47, alleges that Salomon’s pattern of abuse had become so severe that she was “scared of what he is capable of doing to me.”
Since Anderson filed for divorce from Salomon in February, she alleges in the documents that his behavior “has become erratic, out of control and has caused me to fear for my safety.”
Anderson recounted an occasion in late January when he allegedly put a pillow over her face while they were having sex in an attempt to smother her. The documents also claim that when Salomon is “upset,” he calls her “cruel names” such as “slut,” “ugly old b––” and “crack whore.”
In the weeks leading up to their divorce, Anderson received a number of harassing e-mails and text messages from her soon-to-be-ex, she claims. Salomon would also allegedly send Anderson photos of his then-wife that he had taken of her nude and without her consent, “demonstrating that he has the power to send it to anyone if I did not do what he wants,” she claims.
Sigh. What is WRONG with people in this world? I feel like I’m hearing SO many stories lately (as in, more than usual) about violent men (and women!) who seemingly get off on hurting other people. Hopefully she’s able to retain this protection order for as long as she feels it’s necessary (and hopefully he actually abides by it).
