Borat, Not Drunken Shotgun Wedding , Wrecked Pam and Kid Rock’s Marriage
The Post is blaming the dissolution of Pam and Rock’s marriage on Kid Rock’s reaction to Borat’s flick.
JUST three months after they wed in St. Tropez, Pamela Anderson has filed for divorce from Kid Rock (real name Bob Richie) because of his “male insecurity and major anger issues,” a close pal said.
The final straw was a bellicose blowup Rock threw at Universal Studio chief Ron Meyer’s Beverly Hills house two weeks ago.
“Ron Meyer held a screening of ‘Borat’ at his house for a bunch of people, including Pam and Bob,” says an Anderson pal. “It was the first time Bob had seen the movie, and, well, he didn’t like it.”
The hugely popular film shows Sasha Baron Cohen – in character as Borat Sagdiyev – falling in love with Anderson after seeing her in a “Baywatch” rerun, then driving across America in order to propose marriage to her.
Her friend tells Page Six, “Bob started screaming at Pam, saying she had humiliated herself and telling her, ‘You’re nothing but a whore! You’re a slut! How could you do that movie?’ – in front of everyone. It was very embarrassing.
“Pam thought he could have a sense of humor about the movie. She was in on the gag from the very beginning and loved doing the movie. And on the eve of what was supposed to be a very positive thing, he made it an awful night.
“Ever since that night, it has been icicles between them,” the friend relates. “Bob is just a very unhappy and angry man. Pam is very disenchanted and sad. You know, there are reasons why she never married him before. Those reasons disappeared while they were together on a boat in St. Tropez, but she knows now that they never went away. The reality is he is an insecure, angry man.”
I blamed the end of MY marriage on Pootie Tang. Seriously, after starring in that movie as the source of Pootie Tang’s affection, things were never quite the same. Joe began working late nights at the office, and I turned to a botte of Grey Goose and our gardener for solace.
