Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon Finalize Second Divorce, Apologize for 'Hurtful Comments'
The Baywatch actress and the poker player reached a settlement Monday
Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon have officially ended their second marriage.
The stars finalized their divorce Monday and released a joint statement Wednesday.
“Public divorces can be harsh and cruel – we apologize to our families and friends for any hurt and embarrassment we have caused – we have come to an amicable agreement and are moving on,” the couple said. “There are private and personal family sensitivities to consider and we retract any hurtful comments made in haste and distaste. We wish each other and our families well.”
The former Baywatch beauty, 47, filed for divorce from Salomon, 46, in February, citing irreconcilable differences.
Following the court filing, the former couple’s relationship grew increasingly strained. Anderson secured an extension to her March 13 temporary restraining order against Salomon in early April.
In the initial March restraining order, obtained by PEOPLE, Anderson alleged that the poker player was abusive and wrote that she was “scared of what he is capable of doing to me.”
Anderson, 47, filed several harassing emails and text messages from Salomon with her first order, including one that called her a “serial baby killer with her husbands.”
Anderson later spoke out against her ex-husband’s comments in a statement from her rep. “His claims about Ms. Anderson are ridiculous and do not dignify a response,” her rep said in March.
