When you get married less than a week after meeting someone, there’s really no time to plan the perfect wedding, you just gotta make do with what you have. This might explain why Anderson wore a white bikini at the ceremony.
She opted to get Lee’s first name, “Tommy” inked on her finger. The couple stunned the public upon their return to Hollywood, including her mother, who only found out about the wedding in the tabloids.
Passions ran high, and surprisingly — or maybe unsurprisingly, depends on who you'd ask — a tape of the two of them together was mysteriously leaked to the public. Can you imagine the "I told you so" Pamela got from her mother? Things got out of control, and the relationship ended.
But it wasn’t the Rock & Roll lifestyle or the tape that caused the breakup. As Anderson said, Michaels “liked the buffet,” and Anderson has always been monogamously inclined.
Eloping With Tommy Lee
The Mötley Crüe drummer and founder met Anderson just two months after he got divorced from his second wife Heather Locklear. That fact did not stop him from embarking on a new serious relationship right away. Pam and Tommy met at New Year’s Eve party in 1994 in Beverley Hills. They eloped after only knowing each other for four days. In 1995 the two got married in a lovely resort in Cancun, Mexico.
Thee Years, Two Children, One Tape
Pam and Tommy's marriage lasted three years, which is impressive considering their decision to tie the knot was so rushed. The two had two children together. Being rather excited, these newlyweds had made an intimate tape on their Honeymoon, which was unfortunately stolen from their safe by their former electrician, Rand Gauthier, in 1996.
The couple filed a $10 million lawsuit, which you'd expected would resolve the whole issue, but that's the opposite of what ended up happing.
In a peculiar move, the couple decided to sign the rights of their private tape away. They gave the rights to Seth Warshavasky, an American-Polish internet pioneer. They thought that his plan was to broadcast the video once, on his website.
Turns out he had something else in mind. Now, the video that was obtained against their will, was being sold to the masses by Warshavasky. He didn't really care about the couple's feelings or privacy.
