Pamela Anderson and Rick SalomonCelebrity divorces can get real messy as the tabloids go to town and expose issues that are extremely personal. Pamela Anderson has made the headlines once again as she objected to Rick Salomon’s annulment petition in Nevada and categorically stated that she wanted a California divorce which would entitle her to receive a share of Rick’s poker revenue. This is the third time that the couple has filed for divorce.

Rick Salomon has done reasonably well over the last couple of years in the poker industry. He won the 2014 World Series of Poker’s Big One for One Drop event and took home $2.8 million. The Hendon mob reports that Salomon has a total a little over $3 million in prize money and is rated 36th on the California, USA all time money list. Pamela Anderson is not having any of that as she believes her husband has made a lot of extra money playing high stakes poker on the side. Celebritynetworth.com estimates that Salomon’s net worth is around $16 million which is three times more than Pamela Anderson.

Anderson says that Salomon has won over $40 million playing high stakes poker in Las Vegas but has never disclosed his earnings in order to avoid paying tax. She claimed that he used $4 million in cash from this undisclosed money to buy a lavish Las Vegas apartment. He then asked his assistant to use his credit card and make small payments to prove that he was living in Las Vegas.

The divorce got messy this year when Anderson filed for a restraining order after revealing that Salomon choked her in January while having sex and tried to put a pillow on her face and suffocate her. Anderson also claims that Salomon would lose poker games and then come back home and take out his frustration on her by calling her names like ‘crack whore’ and ‘slut’.

Salomon wanted an annulment stating that Pamela was a serial baby killer. He states that she begged him to get her pregnant and then had an abortion without his consent. He sent her a text message which read

You never disclosed to me that you [redacted] a baby when you were married to kid rock. I heard you begged him to get pregnant with him too. I also heard it might have also been twice with him.

One thing is for certain, Rick Salomon has made the tabloids more for his celebrity affairs than his poker winnings.
