Pamela Anderson secretly weds ex Jon Peters: 'I've only wanted Pamela'

Pamela Anderson is reportedly married again.

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report on Tuesday that the former "Baywatch" actress, 52, secretly wed ex Jon Peters, 74, in a private Malibu ceremony on Monday, January 20.

According to the outlet, Anderson and Peters reunited in recent months but opted to keep their rekindled romance a secret from the public.

"Pamela has never seen her full potential as an artist. She has yet to shine in a real way. There is much more to her than meets the eye, or I wouldn’t love her so much," Peters told THR in a statement. "There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but — for 35 years — I’ve only wanted Pamela. She makes me wild — in a good way. She inspires me. I protect her and treat her the way she deserves to be treated."

The couple first met in the mid-'80s at the Playboy Mansion when Anderson was about 19 years old. Peters takes credit for discovering her and even reportedly paid for her to take classes in acting, dancing and singing as she began booking roles on the likes of "Home Improvement" and "Baywatch."

THR reports that Peters and Anderson lived together at the beginning of her career, and she turned down his proposal at the time.

This is both of their fifth marriage. Anderson previously wed Tommy Lee, Kid Rock and Rick Solomon twice. She split from French soccer player Adil Rami, who she has since claimed abused her, last year and also sparked romance rumors with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Peters used to be married to Lesley Ann Warren, Barbra Streisand and Christine Forsyth-Peters.

Anderson released a statement to THR in the form of a poem following her secret wedding to Jon Peters:

"Jon is the original ‘bad boy’ of Hollywood - no one compares -
I love him deeply like family.
His life used to scare me.

So much for a girl like me. Now I’ve seen more of life and realize ..
He’s been there all along. Never failed me -

I’m ready now and
he’s ready too - We

and respect each other - We love each other without conditions. -
I’m a lucky woman. - Proof
God has a plan."
