Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee were the pinnacle of rockstar relationships, if we’ve ever seen them. And now that the pair have been dramatised in the Disney+ series Pam & Tommy, excited TV and film fans want to know the reason why the pair’s relationship ended.
The new series, based on the infamous former-couple Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, depicts their scandalous sex tape leak, which turned out to stem from an accidental theft. So, why did Pam and Tommy break up?
When did Pam and Tommy get married?
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee first met at a club in LA in 1995, and just four days later, they wed.
The lovebirds made their vows on 19th February 1995 at a beach-front wedding in Cancun, Mexico in their bikinis and boardshorts.
How long were Pam and Tommy married?
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee were married for three years.
The pair tied the knot in 1995, and eventually divorced in 1998.
During their three-year marriage, they became parents to Brandon Thomas and Dylan Jagger.
Why did Pam and Tommy break up?
It’s been reported that Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee had a “tumultuous” relationship, and it was their incessant arguing that eventually led to the breakdown of their relationship.
In 1998, Lee was sentenced to six months imprisonment after assaulting his wife shortly after the birth of their newborn son, Jagger.
Lee was arrested "for spousal abuse, child abuse, and unlawful possession of a firearm," while he denied the accusations, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Anderson then filed for divorce from Lee.
She previously spoke to PEOPLE magazine in 2015 about her marriage to the Motley Crue star.
"There was Tommy and then there was nobody else. He was the love of my life,” she said.
"We had a wild and crazy beginning that was too much for both of us.”
She also added: "I had beautiful children with him. My kids are grateful to be born out of true love. Everything else I was trying to piece together."
