LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress Pamela Anderson and her husband, recording star Kid Rock, filed for divorce from each other on Monday after just four months of marriage, according to court papers.
The divorce petitions, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the couple’s split.
“Yes, it’s true. Unfortunately impossible,” Anderson, 39, wrote in the “diary” section of her Web site at www.pamelaanderson.com, under the heading “divorce.”
Earlier on Monday, People magazine quoted Anderson’s New York-based publicist, Tracy Nguyen, as saying the former “Baywatch” star had filed for divorce last week.
“It wasn’t a happy Thanksgiving,” Nguyen told People.
Nguyen was not immediately available to comment further.
Canadian-born Anderson, a former Playboy magazine model who starred as lifeguard C.J. Parker on the long-running TV show “Baywatch,” and Rock, whose hit albums include 1998’s “Devil Without a Cause,” were married in late July aboard a yacht near the French Riviera resort of St. Tropez.
Anderson and Rock, 35, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, had been involved in a long, on-again, off-again relationship that began as early as 2000. After a widely publicized break-up in 2003, she and the lanky rap-rock singer got back together earlier this year.
“Yes, I’m finally getting remarried ... I’m in love. I’m happy,” Anderson had written on her site in July to confirm the wedding plans.
Anderson has two children from her previous marriage to drummer Tommy Lee of the rock band Motley Crue.
She and Kid Rock have no children together. Earlier this month, celebrity magazines reported that Anderson had a miscarriage but that could not be confirmed.
Her divorce filing is the fourth involving major celebrity couples this month, following those of pop singer Britney Spears and dancer Kevin Federline; film stars Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe; and actress Kate Hudson and Black Crowes singer Christopher Robinson.
