After his marriage to Pamela Anderson lasted just 12 days, Hollywood producer Jon Peters says that he is just an “old fool.” Peters has responded to a recent report that claimed Anderson ended the marriage because he was “too controlling.” The 74-year-old says the truth is that Anderson is broke, and after he paid off her debts their relationship ended.
According to Page Six, Peters contacted them after he read their article about an insider dishing that Anderson realized immediately after marrying the former celebrity hairstylist that she “made a terrible mistake.”

Peters sent an email to the publication to clear some things up and explained that “everything they told you was a lie.” First, he said that he didn’t propose to Anderson, and the truth is that she asked him to marry her via text.
“Needless to say that when she texted me that she wanted to get married, it was kind of a dream come true even though I was engaged to someone else and the lady was moving in,’’ Peters wrote. “I dropped everything for Pam. She had almost $200,000 in bills and no way to pay it so I paid it and this is the thanks I get. There’s no fool like an old fool.’’
Peters and Anderson got married in a secret Malibu ceremony on January 20th. The couple briefly dated 30 years ago when she was starring on Baywatch and he was producing Batman, starring Michael Keaton.
The pair reconnected last month and within days they were husband and wife. But, on February 1st Anderson and Peters announced their split. An insider told Page Six that Anderson’s heart was “too open,” and after she returned from a “spiritual cleanse” in India, she made the mistake of marrying Peters.

The celebrity hairdresser-turned-producer says there is a lot more to the story, but the text he sent Anderson is “self explanatory.” Peters attached a copy of the text he sent Anderson, which started out with “Dear Pammy.”
Peters wrote in his text to Anderson that the previous nine days had been a “beautiful amazing love fest.” But, the “whole marriage thing” with lawyers, debt, and Jazmin scared him. Peters said that at the age of 74, the situation made him realize that he needs a quiet and simple life instead of an “international love affair.”
According to the Miami Herald, Jazmin is a “new, racy lifestyle website,” but Peters describes it as bordering on porn. He says Anderson has been making money from the website for about a year.
Peters also told Anderson via text that he thought building an empire together would be fun, but he was wrong. He said he was a simple guy who loves his kids, and he doesn’t want to fly back and forth to Canada (where Anderson is from) because he doesn’t like traveling.
Peters also told Anderson that he still wanted her to be in his upcoming movie Private Dancer, and he can love her by giving her a new career.

Jon Peters says that he has built a financial empire over the last 50 years that he has left all to his kids. He added that it is something very private and personal for him, and the thought of lawyers going through his business makes him want to vomit.
Peters also clapped back at the insider who called him “controlling.” He said that he welcomed Anderson into his life with open arms and love, and “controlling” must mean that he paid off Anderson’s bills because she was broke. He added that he bought Anderson a completely new wardrobe.
“I didn’t want to say anything just wanted it to be that we were going our own separate ways but when I read your article I felt the need to tell the true story,” Jon Peters told Page Six.
A representative for Pamela Anderson says that Peters’ claims “are not only entirely fabricated, they are ludicrous.”
