Anderson Weds Kid Rock In France
PAMELA ANDERSON and KID ROCK married on a yacht moored near Saint Tropez, France, on Saturday (29JUL06). The former BAYWATCH babe and rap-rocker, real name ROBERT RITCHIE, invited celebrity pals CINDY CRAWFORD, RANDE GERBER, Jimmy Choo owner TAMARA MELLON and SIR ELTON JOHN's 'husband' DAVID FURNISH to the share the first of four planned ceremonies - they also plan to wed in Nashville, Tennessee; Malibu, California; and Detroit, Michigan. Anderson, 39, and Ritchie, 35, originally began dating in Spring 2001 and became engaged a year later in the Las Vegas, Nevada desert. However, they split in June 2003. The couple reconciled earlier this month (JUL06) when they met on a friend's yacht and realised they still had feelings for each other. Anderson announced their plans to wed on her website on 18 July (06), gushing, "I'm moving on... I feel like I'm finally free I'm in love. I'm happy... I see the light... sounds dramatic, but it's true." Wedding guest Mellon says, "She was the most beautiful bride I've ever seen - like a modern-day BRIGITTE BARDOT. Kid Rock was a total rock star. He gave her a good kiss. Everybody was crying." Furnish adds, "It was a real rock n' roll wedding." Anderson has two children BRANDON, 10, and DYLAN, 8, from her three year marriage to MOTLEY CRUE drummer TOMMY LEE, while Ritchie is dad to ROBERT JAMES RITCHIE JR, whose mother is ex-girlfriend KELLY SOUTH RUSSELL.
