Pamela Anderson can’t seem to get enough of rockers — the former Mrs. Tommy Lee is now engaged to bad-boy musician Kid Rock. The 34-year-old actress, star of the campy hit “V.I.P.,” said “yes” when boyfriend Kid Rock (real name: Bob Ritchie) proposed last night (April 11) outdoors in the Las Vegas desert, her publicist said. No wedding date was set.
The 31-year-old rap-rock rebel gave her a ring but there were no details, the publicist said. The couple began dating in April 2001, when they met backstage at VH1’s diva salute to Aretha Franklin at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
It will be the second marriage for the former “Baywatch” star, who is locked in a nasty child custody battle over sons Brandon and Dylan with Lee. Last month, Anderson claimed she had contracted the potentially fatal hepatitis C by sharing a tattoo needle with Lee. The former Motley Crue drummer insists, however, that he’s never had the disease.
Anderson said she has been undergoing outpatient treatment at the University of California, Los Angeles, Medical Center.
It will be the first marriage for Rock, who has a young son he raises with the help of his sister in northern Michigan.
