Pamela Anderson's ex Jon Peters has claimed he paid off her $200k debts during their 12 day marriage, stating 'There's no fool like an old fool.'

The 52-year-old former Baywatch star wed her fourth husband - 74-year-old Hollywood producer Peters - on 20 January, only to announce their split 12 days.

Peters has now told the New York Post in an email that Anderson - who he first dated 30 years ago - proposed to him by text message.

He wrote: "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.

"I dropped everything for Pam. She had almost $200k (£154k) 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 announced their separation in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter saying: "I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union. We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another.

"Life is a journey and love is a process. With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalisation of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process."
