Let the single mingle begin. Or, at the very least, continue.
A Los Angeles judge has finalized the terms of Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock's divorce, with both stars set to have their single status reinstated May 28—the de rigueur six months after they filed separate petitions.
After the mandatory waiting period, both stars will be legally free to once again—or, as it happens, thrice again—tie the knot.
Los Angeles Superior Court judge Marjorie S. Steinberg signed off on the judgment Wednesday in an otherwise by-the-book dissolution.
Neither the Baywatch star nor the Detroit rocker requested spousal support from their four-month union. They did not have any children together, although Anderson, 39, did confirm in November she had suffered a miscarriage.
The judge also ruled that Anderson and Rock would split down the middle shares in a company they jointly own, RR & PA, LLC, which they plan to dissolve in the near future. Neither will be forced to part with any income or property brought into the marriage and both will pay their own attorneys' fees.
And so it seems what started with a globe-trotting bang has ended with little more than a whimper—at least an amicable one.
Anderson and Rock first became betrothed in 2002, only to break it off before taking the marital plunge. They rekindled their relationship at the beginning of last summer and announced their re-engagement in July.
By the end of the month, they had already ticked off the first of their three nuptial celebrations, aboard a yacht in St. Tropez July 29. They followed up with the official civil ceremony at the Beverly Hills courthouse Aug. 3, followed by a matrimonial soiree at a honky-tonk Nashville bar shortly thereafter.
But once the parties were over, the union quickly fizzled out.
On Nov. 27, the day after their official separation date, they raced back to the Beverly Hills courthouse, only this time to file dual divorce petitions within an hour of each other (for the record, Rock, who filed under his real name, Robert Ritchie, got his documents stamped 53 minutes before his estranged missus).
Both blamed irreconcilable differences for the split.
The marriage bustup marks the second trip to divorce court for the object of Borat's affections, who was previously married to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and with whom she has two sons, Brandon, 10, and Dylan, 8.
With the divorce details hammered out, both can get back to work.
Rock, 36, has been biding his time in a recording studio, putting the finishing touches on an album due out later this year, while Anderson wrapped production last Friday on the comedy Blonde and Blonder, in which she stars alongside fellow high-profile divorcée Denise Richards and which just so happens to have been written by Anderson's brother, Gerry.
However, she hasn't quite mastered the art of talking the project up.
In a posting to her online diary, Anderson said that she had "a blast shooting" the movie but that it was nevertheless "nothing fancy."
"I prefer the title 2 stupid bitches," she wrote. "I'd hate for this to try and compare to Dumb and Dumber. We're not nearly that funny."
The not-nearly-as-funny comedy is due out in May.
