Before she became a big name, Pamela Anderson lived in British Columbia, descended from Finnish immigrants. In high school, she played volleyball and dated Tyler Anderson.
According to Ty Anderson, Pammy was shy and insecure, particularly in terms of her body. He commented, “I still love her. I still dream about her and I still think about her and my wife knows that. My first love was deep for me. I really loved her.”
At 22 years old, Pamela Anderson briefly lived with former hairdresser and producer Jon Peters. Apparently, Peters met Anderson at the Playboy Mansion. He said, “I walked in and saw this little angel sitting at the bar. It was Pammy. She was like 19.”
He continued, “I knew she would be a big star. We ended up living together. Of course, Hefner loved her and saw her beauty. Pamela was a girl who, with no makeup, was gorgeous. She was very smart and very talented.”
Pamela Anderson was an extremely successful Playboy model, and has since appeared on more covers than anyone else. After she was named the Playmate of the Month in 1990, she met Scott Baio at the mansion. The pair dated for three years, from 1990 to 1993.
Pammy landed her first acting credit while in this relationship. She appeared in her boyfriend’s sitcom, Charles in Charge. The actor married Renée Sloan, who he also met at the Playboy mansion, in 2007.
Next up is more of a fling than a relationship, but it was made in ’90s heaven. In the early ’90s, Pamela Anderson dated Eric Nies for several months. The former model made his name on the first-ever season of The Real World, and went on to star on other reality shows.
These two were only together for a couple of months, but the press loved it! Eric Nies has also dated actresses Alyssa Milano and Kirsty Swanson. He’s currently married to Iona Nies.
After starting her career as a model, Pamela Anderson soon switched to acting. After landing a small role on Home Improvement, she got her big breakthrough with Baywatch in 1992. One of the actress’ costars, David Charvet, was her next boyfriend. The couple was together between 1992 and 1994.
The French actor and singer has two daughters with ex-wife, American TV personality Brooke Burke. After his time on Baywatch, he continued acting, appeared on reality shows, and had a music career.
Antonio Sabàto Jr.
But, if you’re on a show with a bunch of hunky men, why just date one of them? Blonde bombshell Pamela Anderson also hooked up with co-star Antonio Sabàto Jr. in the mid- ’90s. The Italian-born actor also started out as a model, posing for Calvin Klein.
The actor has since moved from California to Florida to open his own studio. Antonio Sabàto Jr. plans to make the movies that are blacklisted due to their politics… that sounds like a wise idea.
For some reason, it makes sense to us that Pamela Anderson dated Poison frontman Bret Michaels. The couple dated in 1994, and Brett struggled to get approval from Pamela’s mom.
He said, “The mom really didn’t like the rocker thing or the way I looked — Pamela had never dated a rocker before. I think that played a big part in the relationship.” As we know, Brett Michaels went on to star on Rock of Love, where hordes of women competed for his charms.
Hey, it only makes sense that Pamela Anderson also hooked up with Superman himself. She and the actor and former football player, Dean Cain, were linked in the ’90s. The actor took on his most famous role in 1993, and attracted millions of viewers.
Also in the 1990s, Dean Cain dated model and professional volleyball player Gabrielle Reece, and was engaged to singer Mindy McCready. Cain has a son with his ex-girlfriend, Playboy model Samantha Torres. He’s now a reserve police officer.
It’s a shame that there are no pictures of Pamela Anderson with her rumored fling Arsenio Hall. We really would have loved to see that. These two apparently got together in the mid-’90s, when they were both enjoying their fame.
By the ’90s, the actor had starred in Coming to America and in 1994, The Arsenio Hall Show launched. After Hall’s son was born in 1998, he stepped back from the limelight to raise him. He resumed his show in 2013.
Where do we begin? Perhaps Pamela Anderson’s most famous relationship is her marriage to Motley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee. The couple met four days before getting married, and Pammy wore a white bikini to say “I do.” She got his name tattooed on her ring finger, and was Mrs. Pamela Lee.
Together, the couple had two sons. However, the marriage ended after three years. Lee was arrested for harming his wife, and charged with six months in prison.
When Tommy Lee was in prison, he found out his wife — or soon-to-be ex-wife — was dating someone else. Pamela Anderson had moved on with another co-star, American professional surfer Kelly Slater.
Kelly Slater is considered the best professional surfer of all time — there’s no wonder Baywatch nabbed him! When asked later about his time with Pammy, he commented, “I learned a lot. I don’t have any ill feelings toward her. I wish her well. Hey, we had an amazing time together.”
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s divorce was finalized in 1998, the star got together with model Marcus Schenkenberg. In fact, the couple was even engaged! Amusingly, this union started when Anderson watched Schenkenberg rescue a bird that had fallen into a Monaco toilet. Who could resist?!
These two were together until 2001, and even collaborated together. They shot a fashion ad campaign, and he guest-starred on her action series V.I.P. The Swedish model and actor also dated Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson.
In the early 2000s, it’s rumored that Pamela Anderson got together with film producer Stavros Merjos. There are no pictures of this particular pairing, just rumors. Merjos is from a Greek and Romanian background, and has since had four kids.
One of Stavros Merjos’ daughters, Hanna Beth, is a former Myspace model that’s dated lots of rockers. She’s also friends with Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Paris Hilton. Stavros Merjos has been married to Scottish art dealer and former fashion model Honor Fraser since 2004.
Here’s an unexpected addition to the list. In 2001, media outlets reported that Pamela Anderson got together with performer Michael Bolton. These two met at a party in the Bahamas and reportedly hit it off.
The American singer-songwriter’s marriage to Maureen McGuire ended in 1990, after 15 years together. He then dated actress Nicollette Sheridan on and off from 1992, right up to 2008. Now, Michael Bolton is a grandfather to at least six lucky grandkids.
Here’s another major relationship in the life of Pamela Anderson. These two gave it a go several times, first from 2001 to 2003, and then again in 2006. The country rap star married the actress in 2006, and they called it quits months later.
Sadly, Pamela Anderson suffered a miscarriage around this time. Eventually, she filed for divorce, saying, “I’m moving on. … I feel like I’m finally free.” Incredibly, when the couple got divorced, the reason cited on their papers was the movie Borat, which Anderson appeared in.
It makes sense to us that Pamela Anderson would date Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. He fits with her rocker, bad boy type, and would have made sense around the period she was interested in Kid Rock. It’s claimed that these two dated briefly in 2003.
Of course, Fred Durst has just made his comeback as a performer. He’s also starred in and directed several independent movies. The performer has been married three times and has two daughters — Adriana and Dallas.
Not just interested in rockers and bad boys, Pamela Anderson also fancies herself a male model every now and then. And who could blame her? In 2004, reports claimed that the actress was seeing American model and actor Christian Monzon.
Christian Monzon started dating Mariah Carey the following year, until they broke up in 2006. Now, the actor is married to Angelica Monzon and has two children — daughter Amor, and son Xander Amar. He’s active on Instagram.
When Pamela Anderson took a trip to the UK in 2004, she sampled some British men while she was there. Firstly, she got together with Welsh TV personality Steve Jones after appearing on his show. Supposedly, the Canadian-American actress invited Jones back to her hotel room.
The former model has continued working as a TV host, currently leading the presenting team for Formula 1. Steve Jones is married to American photographer and food stylist Phylicia Jackson, who he met while working in the US.
Pammy’s next rumored UK fling was with former Take That member and cheeky chappy Robbie Williams. Reports at the time said that the pair enjoyed a candlelit dinner at a posh London hotel, and that Anderson requested the setup. However, years later the actress denied even knowing who the English popstar was. Savage!
Now, Robbie Williams is married to American actress Ayda Field. The couple has four children together — sons Charlton and Beau, and daughters Theodora and Colette.
Between 2004 and 2005, Pamela Anderson dated American actor Stephen Dorff. He had his film breakthrough in horror movie The Gate back in the ’80s, and then acted alongside stars like Daniel Craig, Morgan Freeman, and Reese Witherspoon in the ’90s.
After getting together with Pamela Anderson, Stephen Dorff was romantically linked to British popstars Rachel Stevens (of S Club 7) and Sarah Harding (of Girls Aloud). Before Pammy, he was linked to actresses Alicia Silverstone and Reese Witherspoon, and model Bridget Hall.
Back in 2002, Pamela Anderson and Mark McGrath hosted the Teen Choice Awards together. Some years later, in 2005, it was reported that the two had hooked up. As with most tabloid rumors, these are hard to substantiate. We guess only Mark and Pam know!
Since possibly dating Pammy, singer and host Mark McGrath has settled down. The star married Carin Kingsland in 2012 after dating on and off since 1994. Together they have twins, Lydon Edward and Hartley Grace.
Likewise, we can’t dig up any snaps of Pamela Anderson with Eddie Irvine back when they supposedly dated in 2006. However, there are plenty of pictures of them since then. This one was taken in 2017, and shows the Northern Irish race driver with Northern Irish actor Liam Cunningham.
Known as a playboy, Eddie Irvine has dated many famous women. He has been linked to New Zealand model Rachel Hunter, Irish model Michelle Doherty, and Italian TV personality Lucia Galeone.
He’s Brandy’s brother and Snoop Dogg’s cousin, but he’s more well known for starring in a leaked tape with Kim Kardashian. Ray J — or William Ray Norwood — apparently had a fling with Pamela Anderson in 2006. This was actually before his starring role in the leaked tape.
In 2016, the singer-songwriter married his Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood castmate Princess Love, but the couple divorced in 2020. Together, they have daughter Melody Love and son Epik Ray.
Clearly, when Pamela Anderson is photographed with a man, outlets report that they could be dating. And hey, we suppose they could. In this case, the former model was spotted with R&B star Usher at a party in Atlanta, Georgia.
Usher married stylist Tameke Foster in 2007, though they later split in 2009. He got married again in 2015 to his manager Grace Miguel, though they split in 2018. He has three children and is expecting another with music executive Jenn Goicoechea.
Between 2006 and 2010, Pamela Anderson had an on-off relationship with businessman Laurence Hallier. However, this relationship ended in court, with each partner trying to sue the other. What a love story!
Pamela tried to sue her ex for a million bucks because he didn’t give her a condo as promised. In response, Laurence sued his ex for $22.5 million because she didn’t promote his residential development in Las Vegas. In the end, they both settled out of court. Thank you, next!
Another of Pamela Anderson’s rumored flings is former American football player David Binn. The stars met in 2007, and dated on and off that year and the next. The NFL player hasn’t been linked with anyone else since his time with Pamela. We presume that he’s good at keeping his romantic life on the down-low!
Around this time, Pamela Anderson also claimed to be hooking up with her ex-husband, Tommy Lee. In 2008, Lee confirmed that they were trying to make things work.
We hate to say it, but Pamela Anderson was indeed romantically linked to a magician. We know, we know, but it happened. In 2007, the blonde bombshell was the onstage assistant for magician Hans Klok. Pam appeared in The Dutch illusionist’s Las Vegas show, “The Beauty of Magic.” See what they did there?
Pammy told Craig Ferguson, “There’s a lot of love backstage. It’s very physical, it’s very loving.” However, Klok later said that the relationship was invented for publicity.
We thought we hated the idea of Pamela Anderson with a magician until we thought of her with David Spade. For some reason, the comedian managed to have a fling with the actress in 2007. We truly can’t understand why she would do such a thing. However, Brett Michaels wasn’t exactly a catch.
Pamela Anderson and David Spade hosted the Teen Choice Awards together, and have been friends for years. This picture was taken at a party in 2005.
In total, Pamela Anderson married American poker player Rick Salomon twice. Having already been with Ray J, the star of a famous leaked tape, it was time to find another. You see, Rick Salomon is most well-known for appearing in Paris Hilton’s leaked tape.
These two were married between 2007 and 2008 and then again from 2014 to 2015. When asked why she married him between magic shows with Hans Klok in Vegas, she said, “He was just always there, and I was like, you’re always here.”
Folks, you won’t believe it but it’s another magician. Someone needs to speak with Pamela about her taste in men. Clearly, the star was having a great time in Vegas as she was photographed partying with the American illusionist.
Over the years, Criss Angel has been linked to several women. He was married to JoAnn Winkhart, and dated model and TV personality Holly Madison. He now has two sons with Australian singer Shaunyl Benson — Johnny Christopher, and Xristos Yanni.
When Pamela Anderson appeared on UK reality series Dancing on Ice, she was partnered with American skater Matt Evers. Though they were eliminated first, the partners were rumored to be dating from 2012 to 2013.
His rep confirmed that “They formed a very close bond and have made plans to see each other in the very near future.” Though he was formerly married to a woman, Matt Evers came out as gay in 2018.
In 2017, Pamela Anderson got together with French professional soccer player, Adil Rami. The couple lived together and there were even engagement rumors in 2018. However, this relationship came to an end in 2019 when Pam shared Adil had been “living a double life.”
He responded, saying, “At no point did I live a double life, I am simply determined to preserve a lasting relationship with my children and their mother, Sidonie, for whom I have a deep respect. It’s true that I should have been more transparent.”
While Pamela Anderson was living with soccer player Adil Rami, the media was naming her as the girlfriend of Julian Assange. Indeed, the star had been introduced to the WikiLeaks founder back in 2014 and she regularly visited him.
At the time, both Assange and Anderson downplayed their relationship. However, we think it worked for both of them. It was later revealed that Assange had fathered a child during this time, though his partner was pleased that Pammy was in the papers — not her.
We’ve already seen producer Jon Peters on this list, back when Pamela Anderson lived with him as a teenager. Incredibly, the pair got married in 2020, and then immediately separated.
This is a confusing situation. On the one hand, the media reported that the couple got married in a private ceremony in Malibu. On the other, Anderson said that they merely had “a theatrical lunch,” dressed up, and didn’t really mean it. Peters has been married five times, and is currently engaged.
Finally, it’s time to meet Pamela Anderson’s current husband. Dan Hayhurst is the star’s bodyguard, and they fell in love while spending lockdown together. The couple got married on Christmas Eve 2020 in Canada in the same place that Pam’s parents got married.
The star said, “I am in love. We were married Christmas Eve with both our families’ blessing, everyone we know is happy for us […] I’m exactly where I need to be — in the arms of a man who truly loves me.”
