After news broke last week that the reunited couple had called it quits after 12 days of marriage, the producer claimed in an email to Page Six that the actress “proposed to him in a text”, and after getting hitched he “paid” off her debts.
“Needless to say that when she texted me that she wanted to get married, it was kind of a dream come true — even though I was engaged to someone else and the lady was moving in,” Peters, who produced Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born remake.
“I dropped everything for Pam,” he continued in the claims.
“She had almost US$200,000 (approx. $298,000) in bills and no way to pay it, so I paid it and this is the thanks I get. There’s no fool like an old fool.”
Anderson’s representative has denied the allegations, telling ET, “These claims are not only entirely fabricated, they are ludicrous.”
“Despite Mr. Peters’ efforts to elicit a response from Ms. Anderson, she has no comment to provide and wishes him well.”
Last week, a source told People magazine after the whirlwind wedding, Peters and the Baywatch alum “just needed to take a step back”.
“Although they have known each other for more than 30 years, they had never lived together. Living with someone, you truly get to know them. Pam’s a romantic, but she is also very independent.
“This all moved a bit fast,” added the source, “so they both agreed to put it off.”
