Rick's third marriage was with Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson. Anderson and Salomon requested for a marriage license in Las Vegas on September 29, 2007, and got married a month later. The ceremony took place at Planet Hollywood Resort.
The marriage was also not long lasting. Within ten weeks, Anderson filed for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences, but later on, the two reconciled. But in February 2008, Anderson filed an annulment citing fraud and Salomon did the same, the following month. Their request was granted on March 24, 2008.
Despite already having annulled, Rick and Anderson remarried but no details were put forward. Pamela made the announcement of her remarriage with Rick in January 2014.

Not too long after their reunion, Anderson again filed for divorce from Salomon on July 3, 2014, and Salomon filed for an annulment in Nevada. They were legally divorced on April 29, 201, and Anderson received $1 million as the settlement amount.
Anderson and Rick's marriage was a hectic one from the very beginning. The on/off divorce ended with a restraining order against Rick by Anderson for harassing and blackmailing her. Anderson once even claimed that the marriage had made her look 20-years older than she actually was.
Rick Salomon has been in relationships with famous female celebrities. One of his most talked-about relationships was with Paris Hilton in 2001. During their relationship, a sex tape featuring the two was released by Kahatani Ltd. on the internet without their permission. As a result of the violation of privacy, Paris sued the company for $30 million while Rick filed a lawsuit against the company and Hilton family.
Later on April 2004, Rick himself distributed the tape through adult-film company Red Light District Video under the title 1 Night in Paris and gave Hilton $400,000 plus a percentage of the tape's sale profit.
