We have seen the rocky high-profile relationship of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee packed with controversies in the drama miniseries titled “Pam & Tommy,” but why did they end up getting divorced? The question has undoubtedly made people curious.
The unlawful circulation of the pair’s personal sex tape turned their personal lives upside down majorly, with the miscarriage in the fourth episode of the miniseries that appeared to be prompted because of the distressing experience. Ironically, the reason to end their years after so many years is something completely different.
How Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee Met?
The 55-year-old actress and model Pamela Anderson & the 59-year-old musician Tommy Lee met on New Year Eve’s in 1994 at the club Sanctuary for the first time. Since then, the musician was attracted to the actress and started following her and even went to Cancún back in February 1995 just for Pamela Anderson.
After four days, the renowned celebrities thoughtlessly got married to each other and also got their names tattooed on their ring fingers of each other. Though they could not keep anything private in their relationship as the paparazzi used to follow each and every move made by them and even their private moments also eventually dropped on the young internet at the time but the couple was stuck to each other.
In 1996, they welcomed their first child together, a son named Brandon Thomas with the second son arriving the next year named Dylan Jagger.
Domestic Violence Suit
In February 1998, their relationship took an unfortunate turn as Tommy Lee was detained for the charges of spousal abuse which led to their separation and divorce as well. In spite of their similar personalities, maybe the pressure of keeping up with an extremely publicized marriage got the best of them. Things got worse when a heated argument happened between them.
Reportedly, Lee knocked on Anderson while she was carrying their two-month-old son named Dylan. Subsequently, Pamela left having suffered “bruises, a torn fingernail, and fear for the safety of her two sons.” Tommy Lee was later sentenced to imprisonment of six months in the Los Angeles County Jail. After a few days, Pamela filed for divorce, stating irreconcilable differences and asked for entire custody of their kids.
Though the couple’s divorce didn’t actually end their relationship after a few years, Tommy Lee revealed his emotions in his 2001 co-memoir named “The Dirt.” He was puzzled with respect to the manner Anderson, whose intimate tape led to affect her career severely and their marriage also suffered, saying that “she probably wanted an easy way out of a difficult situation.”
Notwithstanding, following the release of Lee in 1998 from prison, he once again started dating Anderson in 2001. Then following engaging in respective relationships, the two remarried in 2008 and moved in together with their kids. Unfortunately, this was also for a short time and the two eventually divorced in 2010, ending their on-and-off relationship of 15 years.
Following parting their ways, Pamela Anderson remarried three times among which the recent one was with her bodyguard named Dan Hayhurst and the marriage ended at the beginning of 2022. Anderson then appeared in films and television shows since then since she decided to focus more on her activism. While Tommy Lee’s life following the leak of the tape as well as the divorce saw him getting engaged two times.
As of now, he is married to Brittany Furlan. He made guest appearances in several reality shows along with some episodes in sitcoms. Though the two have now moved forward in their respective lives, they still left several disputes, particularly those related to their kids. Though the majority of their problems have already been reconciled, Pam & Tommy’s closer, while somehow fictional, still demonstrates that their marriage continues to be one of the rockiest in the industry.
