“Batman” Producer Jon Peters Says He’s Left Ex-Wife Pamela Anderson $10 Million in His Will — And She Doesn’t Know It


“Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson is releasing a memoir soon. It’s called “Love, Pamela.” This has prompted a cover story in Variety.

The most interesting take away? Anderson was married to long time friend Jon Peters, producer of the original “Batman” movie, for 12 days in 2020. You’d think their split was a mess, but they seem to be on amicable terms. She’s getting ten million bucks when he croaks.

Peters– famous for long term relationship with Barbra Streisand in the 70s — tells Variety: “I will always love Pamela, always in my heart. As a matter of fact, I left her $10 million in my will. And she doesn’t even know that. Nobody knows that. 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.”

I don’t know in their world if that’s a little or a lot of money, or a settlement that was reached when they split. I do know that if this were “Columbo” or “Perry Mason,” an hour well spent would be coming up right now. If I were Peters, I’d beef up security.
