Just weeks after revealing that they were headed for divorce, it has emerged that actress Pamela Anderson has taken out a restraining order against estranged husband Rick Salomon.
According to a report by entertainment website TMZ this weekend, the former Baywatch star is claiming in court documents that Salomon tried to smother and strangle her during sex.
The official court report states that Salomon grew violent towards his 47-year-old wife after flying into a rage, and he proceeded to push a pillow over her face.
Anderson also claims that Salomon, a professional poker player, used to call her names including ‘slut’ and ‘crack whore’, after losing games.
The mother-of-two filed the petition for the restraining order this week, with the court granting it, just a month after reports of the couple’s planned divorce emerged.
Anderson and Salomon have not had the most straightforward romance. The couple exchanged vows back in 2007, but had the marriage annulled just two months later. They decided last year to give the relationship another shot, going on to remarry, but announcing their divorce just six months after.
Unfortunately, it sounds as though this split was far from amicable.
