Well, this is getting ugly.
In the wake of Rick Salomon's disturbing allegations against estranged wife Pamela Anderson, the 47-year-old star's publicist has issued a statement shooting down the poker player's claims just over a month after the Baywatch beauty filed for divorce.
Earlier this month, Anderson secured a temporary restraining order against Salomon to prevent him from contacting her in any way, alleging that her ex "engaged in repeated acts of harassment and abuse" that caused her to experience "severe emotional distress."
"Ms. Anderson filed for divorce from [Rick Salomon] on Feb. 11, 2015," Ann Gurrola's statement began. "A judge granted Ms. Anderson a restraining for good reason, to protect her safety. [Mr. Salomon] has been avoiding being served. His claims about Ms. Anderson are ridiculous and do not dignify a response. She is moving on with her life and spending quality time with her family."

Anderson is currently in the midst of her third divorce from Salomon, who subsequently filed legal documents seeking an annulment of their marriage.
In a declaration attached to Pamela's temporary restraining order petition filed with the L.A. Superior Court and obtained by E! News, Anderson references "physical abuse in the past." Among the allegations, she claims that while having sex together later that month Salomon put a pillow over her face and "tried to strangle" her. She also says Salomon called her cruel names such as "slut" and "ugly old bitch" when he was upset after a bad poker game.
Moreover, Anderson says Salomon would her send "harassing" text messages, and in one email submitted to the judge as evidence, Salomon accused Pamela of terminating multiple pregnancies, calling her a "serial baby killer."
The statement from Pamela's publicist also addressed the rumors surrounding Anderson's friendship with the late Simpsons co-developer Sam Simon after reports claimed that the 59-year-old star, who passed away earlier this month after a long battle with cancer, sent extravagant gifts to the actress before his death. Additionally, numerous reports suggested that Anderson did not attend Simon's funeral.
"This is a sad time her," the statement continued, clarifying that she did attend the services. "Sam Simon and Ms. Anderson were extremely close. He adored her. She spoke lovingly at his funeral alongside Jennifer Tilly and Sam's girlfriend Kate. Their affections are personal."
Anderson and Salomon originally married in October 2007, but the 47-year-old star filed to have her marriage annulled shortly thereafter in February. However, the split didn't last and the two eventually tied the knot (again) on Jan. 9, 2014, after about six years apart.
Less than six months later, on July 3, Pamela filed for divorce, but later requested the judge toss out her request because she and her on-again off-again husband had reconciled their "irreconcilable differences."
This was the third marriage for Anderson and second for Salomon, not including their previously annulled union and Rick's marriage to Shannen Doherty, which was also annulled. Anderson has two sons with first ex-husband Tommy Lee, while Salomon has two daughters with his first wife, Elizabeth Daily.
