Who is Rick Salomon?

Who is Rick Salomon? Rick Salomon (born 24 January 1968 in Neptune, New Jersey) is best known for his relationships with various female celebrities, including Shannen Doherty, Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson.

The son of a former executive vice president at Warner Bros., Salomon grew up in Wayside, NJ. Around the age of 20 he became an executive producer and businessman. He was married to voice actress Elizabeth "E.G" Daily from 1995 to 2000 and has daughters Hunter (b. 1996) and Tyson (b. 1998) with her.

Salomon first rose to national prominence during his short and volatile marriage to actress Shannen Doherty. They married on 25 January 2002, but split soon afterwards. The marriage was annulled after only nine months, with Doherty reportedly upset with Salomon's continuing relationship with Paris Hilton.

In 2003, a sex tape featuring Hilton and Salomon surfaced. The tape leaked onto the Internet. Salomon filed suit both against the company distributing the tape and the Hilton family, whom he accused of tarnishing his reputation by suggesting that he had exploited Paris. Salomon further claimed in his $10 million suit that the Hiltons were implying that Paris was underage when the tape was made, and were attempting to crush him to preserve the image they had created for her.

After a few months, Salomon started to distribute the tape himself through adult film company Red Light District Video and was sued by Paris Hilton. This suit was allegedly settled, with Hilton receiving $400,000 and a cut of the profits from the tape, however Paris denies ever receiving any money from the tape. The DVD of the sex video is entitled 1 Night in Paris and is available widely, and was a huge seller of 2005, winning several AVN Awards.

On September 29, 2007 Pamela Anderson and Salomon applied for a marriage license in Las Vegas. Anderson had told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in September that she was engaged but did not reaveal his name and referring to him as a poker player. Anderson is a mother of two children from her marriages to Tommy Lee, and was most recently married to Kid Rock. Anderson and Saloman were married on October 6, 2007. Link
