Hollywood actress Pamela Anderson has applied for a marriage licence in Las Vegas, according to reports.

Access Hollywood reports that the Baywatch star and her reported lover Rick Salomon, best-known for making a steamy video with Paris Hilton, filed the papers and have apparently been granted permission to wed.

Anderson, who has been married to rock stars Kid Rock and Tommy Lee in the past, is currently performing in a live magic show in Vegas. She recently denied reports that she was neglecting her children by emphasising that her family was her priority.

The 40-year-old announced she was seeing a new man during an appearance on a US talk show earlier this year, following a brawl between her two ex-husbands at the MTV video music awards.

She told chat show host Ellen Degeneres that her new man was a professional poker player.

When asked about her feelings for the professional gambler, Anderson said she was in love with her latest beau, but not engaged to him.
