In the tower of his fancy London political asylum cell, Julian Assange is celebrating like a giddy boy today with the news that Pamela Anderson has dumped her World Cup winning French soccer star boyfriend Adil Rami after he reportedly gave her a Cartier pre-engagemnt ring. Pamela, who customarily likes her men a bit more skinny and dirt baggy, has apparently had enough of Adil’s healthy soccer player glow and has kicked him to the curb after about a year of living together.
51-year-old Pamela and 32-year-old Adil got together after they met at the Monaco Grand Prix last year, with Pamela almost immediately saying “au revoir” to LA, leasing her Malibu house out and moving into Adil’s home in France. Pamela even moved her dog to Marseilles (Adil plays for the Olympique de Marseille team), so you KNOW things were serious. Oh, that and he met her mom in July. Dog approval- check. Mom approval- check. And look at Adil. A top athlete with a lumber sexual mustache and sweaty bulging pecs. What more could a gal want???
Everything seemed on course for the two until Adil blew it by offering Pamela a ring that TMZ says was a “precursor to a proposal“. Despite what Beyonce would have us all believe, having a ring put on it may as well be handcuffs to some of us, and lockdown is lockdown. So Pamela turned him down, kept the ring, and moved out. Adil went on Instagram to shoot down the rumors, posting a face in palm emoji with the caption “Gossip Sells“, but almost as soon as he posted, he pulled it down again, pretty much solidifying speculation that they’re done.
The Mirror thinks that Pamela broke up with Adil is because she felt she was the reason he wasn’t spending enough time with his young sons:
“After spending this past week with Adil’s cute twin sons… it broke Pam’s heart that he doesn’t see them enough, as he should, so she’s moving out,” a source told the publication.
“It’s a selfless move by Pamela, a true romantic — and she is heartbroken. Adil has difficulty balancing his life with Pamela and what should be a healthy relationship with his ex, the mother of his children.”
It should also be pointed out that Pamela is soon to appear on the French version of Dancing With The Stars, so this timing is pretty good for the old press coverage. Well played, Pamela!
And what happened to the Cartier pre-engagement ring? It has reportedly ended up in the sticky palm of Pamela’s eldest son Brandon Lee. Maybe Pamela felt guilty about Brandon and his dad Tommy “Ten Foot Schlong” Lee‘s public fighting and is trying to make up for it? Maybe it was a gift to encourage Brandon onward in his sobriety post rehab? All we know is that Adil doesn’t appear to be getting the ring back. Hard lesson to learn, my man.
I have two takeaways to this story. Does anyone else think it’s weird that Pamela and Tommy named their sons Brandon and Dylan after the main characters in Beverly Hills 90210? Also, Rest In Peace to the ORIGINAL Brandon Lee of The Crow. The small section of my heart that is gothic pours some out for you every time your name gets dragged into a story about this other Lee family.
