Citing concern for their children and the media frenzy over her impending divorce, actress Pamela Anderson said she wants to resolve her break up with singer Kid Rock “amicably” and “with dignity.”
“I’m very concerned with the press on mine and Bob’s divorce ... my children can read -- and I’d like to resolve this amicably -- not fueling fires -- and with dignity,” Anderson wrote in a posting Tuesday at www.pamelaanderson.com.
Rock’s real name is Bob Ritchie. The singer, 35, and Anderson, 39, were married only about four months ago and both filed for divorce earlier this week in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.
Anderson is well-known as a Playboy magazine model and star of television shows such as “Baywatch.” She recently played herself in comedy film “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” in which she was the object of the lead character’s sexual obsession.
Rock has made a name for himself with a hybrid style of rap and hard rock that has won fans around the world for hit albums such as 1998’s “Devil Without a Cause.”
The two were married in late July on a yacht outside the French Riviera city of St. Tropez, and then held other ceremonies in various U.S. cities.
Since reports the couple filed for divorce first surfaced, many stories have appeared in newspapers and on the Web citing reasons for the breakup such as Rock being upset over Anderson’s appearance in “Borat” and her feeling that Rock had unresolved anger issues.
None of the stories have been confirmed by Anderson or Rock, and spokespersons for both declined to comment Wednesday.
“Kids don’t know the difference between fact and tabloid ... does anybody?” Anderson wrote on her Web site. “Truth is Bob is great in many ways -- we just don’t belong together ... we mutually agree.”
Canadian-born Anderson was previously married to rocker Tommy Lee of the band Motley Crue, and they have two children. Ritchie has one son with former girlfriend Kelley South Russell.
