Anderson to marry Paris Hilton ex
Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon

Actress Pamela Anderson is set to marry Rick Salomon, the former boyfriend of celebrity heiress Paris Hilton.

The couple have been granted a wedding licence in Las Vegas, enabling them to marry at any time over the next year, officials in Clark County confirmed.

Salomon, 38, is best known for making an explicit video with Hilton.

Former Baywatch star Anderson, 40, divorced musician Kid Rock earlier this year, having been married to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee until 1998.

Notoriety

Last month, Anderson appeared on a US television talk show hosted by Ellen de Generes and announced that she was engaged.

But she refused to identify her fiance, other than disclosing that he was a poker player.

The screen star's most recent marriage to Kid Rock ended in divorce being sought after just four months.

At the MTV Music Video Awards in Las Vegas in September, he was arrested on suspicion of assaulting Tommy Lee, the father of Anderson's two children.

Lee and Anderson also gained notoriety for recording an explicit video.

The tape involving Hilton and Salomon, recorded in infrared, was initially circulated on the internet before being released as an X-rated film entitled One Night in Paris.
