Pam Anderson is unlucky in love

Pam Anderson has already had enough of her new husband. After only six months of marriage, Anderson has filed for divorce from Rick Salomon.

Pamela Anderson: "I'm running the New York Marathon" >>

In the court documents, which were obtained by E! News, Anderson said the couple has been separated since July 3. The couple married on Jan. 9.

But this divorce doesn't necessarily mean it's the end for Anderson and Salomon — the couple has been married before. They said their "I dos" (the first time) in October 2007 in Las Vegas, but Anderson annulled that marriage the following February.

The couple's marriage did last longer this time, and it appeared they were really trying. Back in May, they appeared together at the Cannes Film Festival in France looking happy.

Anderson was at Cannes to talk about the Pamela Anderson Foundation — and revealed a childhood filled with sexual abuse. Anderson's foundation is for the protection of animals and she explained how her abuse led her to want to protect those who can't always protect themselves.

"My affinity with animals saved me, they came to me naturally. The trees spoke to me," she explained at the time. "I wasn't sure why I was alive — a burning question, a quest. My loyalty remained with the animal kingdom."

The marriage to Anderson was Salomon's fourth, including the previous one to Anderson. He was married in 2002 to Shannen Doherty — another marriage that was also annulled. He was also married in 1995 to Elizabeth Daily. The couple divorced in 2000, but they have two daughters together.

Sex may sell, but at what cost?

Salomon's real claim to fame, though, may be that he is the man in Paris Hilton's infamous sex tape.

The marriage is the third for Anderson (the fourth if you include her previous marriage to Salomon). She has also been married to Kid Rock and Motley Crue's Tommy Lee.
