Ah, to have the troubles of the rich and famous, such as trying to save face when a whirlwind marriage goes bust in under two weeks.

Amid the break up of his 12 day marriage to Pamela Anderson, Hollywood producer Jon Peters is pushing back on claims that he was “too controlling” — the couple dated 30 years ago.

“There’s no fool like an old fool,” Peters said, in an email to Page Six.


Claiming Anderson was “broke,” the 74-year-old former hairstylist-to-the-stars said he paid off her debts before she skedaddled.

“I dropped everything for Pam. She had almost $200,000 in bills and no way to pay it so I paid it and this is the thanks I get,” Peters said. He also said that he “bought her a completely new wardrobe.”

And when he says he dropped everything, that includes a fiance!

Peters said Anderson proposed to him via text — considering an attempted coup de grace of the U.S. government was facilitated in this manner, why not? — and that he was all in, despite being engaged to someone else.

“Needless to say that when she texted me that she wanted to get married, it was kind of a dream come true even though I was engaged to someone else,” Peters said. “And the lady was moving in.’’

Peters produced the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born,’’ starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

His claim that Anderson, 52, proposed differs from Anderson sources who have said that he asked the former Baywatch actress to marry him.

“Everything they told you was a lie’’ Peters insisted in the email.

Anderson’s representatives countered to call the claims made by Peters “ludicrous.”

Page Six had previously reported that sources said Anderson had just returned from a monthlong “spiritual cleanse” in India, and her “heart was open, but, in hindsight, too open.”

Feeling she jumped too fast into marriage with Peters, the source said that after they had spent a day and a half together as husband and wife, Anderson realized that she “made a terrible mistake.”

Peters was allegedly overbearing and too focused on fame, with the source explaining that Anderson felt he was “trying to be too controlling over her.”

“Pamela felt that he was frustrated over how she wanted to maintain her financial independence … He started to make calls about her career and cast her in a movie he was working on, things she didn’t want,” the person said.

Peters did share another text where he tells Anderson he still wants her to be in his upcoming movie, “Private Dancer.”

“i still want you to be in my movie. … this will be an amazing breakthrough for you,’’ Peters texted. “I can love you by giving you a new career. we need a couple weeks to detune then we can talk. i love you. jp”

Anderson reportedly prefers to avoid the celebrity world and focus on her charities and political and animal advocacy work.

To hear Peters tell the tale, he told Anderson that they were over.

In a text, of course.

“There’s a lot more to the story but I think the text … is self explanatory,” Peters said, attaching a copy of “dear pammy’’ text.

“[T]hese past 9 days have been a beautiful amazing love fest,’’ he texted the actress. But “this whole marriage thing with lawyers, debt, and jazmin [sic] has scared me. it made me realize that at 74 i need a simple quiet life and not an international love affair.”
