Hollywood mogul Jon Peters has been married four times: He was once married to actress Pamela Anderson: Everything to know here!
Jon Peters is an affluent Hollywood film producer and former hairdresser. Peters is credited for producing some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters like Superman, Batman, Man of Steel, A Star Is Born, and Wild Wild West. Despite his impressive credentials and a burgeoning net worth, (he is estimated to be worth $300 million) Peters keeps it low and is known to be a recluse. And we think it has something to do with the producer's untasteful past. "I am the Trump of Hollywood," says the producer.
Peters was born on June 2, 1945, in Van Nuys, California. His future in the film industry was decided when he landed a non-speaking acting gig in Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments in 1956. But it was as a hairdresser that Jon made his way into the high-profile Hollywood club. Peters became actress Barbra Streisand's hairdresser in 1973, and even though he was a married man at the time, Jon and Barbara would quickly start an intense relationship that would draw huge media attention for twelve-long years.
Inside Jon Peters' Relationship History!
Peters has walked down the aisle a number of times, but the first time the producer walked down the aisle was in 1962. He had run away from home at 14 and had started working as a hairdresser at the Rodeo Drive when he met his first wife, Henrietta Zampitella. The two tied the knot in 1962 and called it quit in 1966. The movie mogul immediately delved into another marriage, by getting hitched to Victor Victoria actress Lesley Ann Warren, with whom he welcomed his firstborn, Christopher.
The duo's marriage ended amid Peters' controversial affair with Streisand in 1974. The third time was really the charm for Peters, who was then looking for ways to break into the cut-throat movie business and Barbra presented herself the ticket. The pair met on the sets of the comedy For Pete's Sake in 1974. Jon's shameless hunger for success led him to abandon his wife and started a romantic relationship with Streisand. Peters and Barbra's relationship was as scandalous as it was legendary.
Although their 12-year-long romance didn't end in a lifetime of commitment, their personal relationship spawned a great business for the two. Peters and Barbra worked in multiple movies and continue to keep a friendly relationship to this day. "She was probably the love of my life. Yeah. She was the most captivating, interesting, creative person I have ever met," Jon once said in a rare interview. The Batman producer added, "I owe her. I will always owe her for giving me the life that I've had." Peter and the EGOT-winning Barbara never tied the knot. The duo's relationship ended in 1982 because of their creative differences about a project.
The movie mogul married for the third time in 1987. Jon's third wife, producer Christine Forsyth, brought two adopted daughters, Skye and Caleigh Peters into his life. The pair's marriage ended after five years in 1993. The Man of Steel producer kept his divorced status for a while before marrying horse breeder Mindy Williamson in 1994. Peter and his fourth wife welcomed daughter Kendyl and son Jordan before splitting ways in 2004.
Coming to Jon's best-known relationship, of course, after Barbra, he was married to actress and former Playboy model Pamela Anderson. As per reports, the hairdresser-turned-producer always had a thing for the blonde actress. Jon had even proposed to Anderson in the 80s but the yes came when he popped the question again in 2020. The two tied the knot in Malibu on January 2020, and in the most random turn of events, called quits after two weeks.
Jon Peters is Leaving a Large Sum for Pamela in his Will!
The usually reticent Jon Peters recently revealed bombshell personal news. In his latest interview, the producer revealed that he is leaving Anderson $10 million in his will. The news has since been getting hilarious reactions as the two were married for only 12 days, which, as per Anderson, wasn't even legal. "I will always love Pamela, always in my heart. As a matter of fact, I left her $10 million in my will," Peters said, adding, "I'm just saying it for the first time with you. I probably shouldn't be saying it. So that's for her, whether she needs it or not."
There's no way to know if this is Peters' way to win back Pamela or if his relationship with Julia Bernheim ( his fiance) has hit a bump, but one thing is for certain the producer is not kidding. The movie mogul previously blurted out his intense love and adoration for the Baywatch actress. "There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but — for 35 years — I've only wanted Pamela. She makes me wild — in a good way. She inspires me," Jon said. Pamela's response, on the other hand, has been cold and confusing, to say the least.
"He's great and has been a huge influence on my life. I love him to death," the actress said in one interview. And in another, Pamela compared her marriage with Peters to a bizarre lunch. "No hard feelings - no Marriage, no Divorce...just a bizarre theatrical lunch," her statement read. Since her breakup with Jon, Anderson has married and divorced her bodyguard Dan Hayhurst.

Peters got engaged to actress Julia Bernheim three weeks after calling it quits with Anderson. The shocking news was revealed by NASDAQ Closing Bell, run by Neptune Wellness, of which Peters is an investor. Julia professionally goes by Julia Faye West and is an actress from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Fans were left scratching their heads as the producer had ended things with Pamela because he realized that he wanted to be alone and yet there he was, ready to commit again.

"This whole marriage thing … has scared me," Peters' breakup text to Pamela read. He added, "It made me realize that at 74 I need a simple quiet life and not an international love affair." Anderson's reaction to Peters moving on quickly was "bamboozled." "It's been an eventful few weeks for me personally - but there are more important things to care about in the world," Pamela wrote after hearing about Jon's engagement. She added, "I considered him a close friend. Someone I could count on. Eccentric ?- oh yes. That was part of the fun. Still hurts to be - #bamboozled."
