Pamela Anderson jumped too fast into a marriage with Hollywood producer Jon Peters because she had just returned from a monthlong “spiritual cleanse” in India, and her “heart was open, but, in hindsight, too open,” sources exclusively tell Page Six.
But while the couple had dated briefly 30 years ago, Anderson, 52, spent only three days with Peters, 74, during the more recent go-round before they wed, a source says — and then she immediately regretted their union.
The source said, “Pamela does not operate on the same wavelength as other people. She has a huge heart and she loves big, fast and hard.”
They added, “She came back from her trip and Jon said to her, ‘I love you, let’s get married.’ So she said, ‘OK.’”
The source said that immediately after they were married — after they had spent a day and a half together as husband and wife — she realized she had “made a terrible mistake.”
The source said that the actress and model found Peters to be overbearing, and too focused on fame, while she now prefers to spend more time out of the celebrity world and focusing on her charities and political and animal advocacy work.
The source explained that Anderson felt Peters was “trying to be too controlling over her.”
“Pamela felt that he was frustrated over how she wanted to maintain her financial independence … He started to make calls about her career and cast her in a movie he was working on, things she didn’t want,” they said.
We’re told that they never filed the formal paperwork for their marriage, so it wasn’t yet legal and therefore very simple to end.
Peters didn’t get back to us.
