Pamela Anderson’s former husband, Kid Rock, has some words of wisdom for her new husband, Rick Salomon – advice he says he only wishes someone had offered him.
“Why buy the cow, when you get the milk for free?” Rock, 36, said Monday on the Late Show with David Letterman.
As the in-studio audience groaned in response, the rocker said, “C’mon lighten up.”
“Exactly,” said Letterman.
“I wish them much happiness,” added the musician, sounding slightly glib about his ex’s new marriage.
“And I think they will be,” said Letterman, ever more archly.
Letterman also mentioned Kid Rock’s confrontation with Anderson’s first husband, Tommy Lee, which took place at the Sept. 9 MTV Video Music Awards.
Kid Rock muttered something about being “bullied around for so long” that he couldn’t take it anymore, and Letterman asked if he expected legal trouble as a result of what took place.
“I hope not,” said the rocker, “but [you] never can tell with this thing.”
