They say water and electricity don’t mix, but for eternal beach bunny Pamela Anderson, there’s nothing like taking a dip in the ocean with new surfer boyfriend Jamie Padgett.
A bikini-clad Anderson, 42, was spotted out at the beach in Malibu with her buff boyfriend, who’s an electrician. The pair reportedly met a few months ago at a trailer park where the former wife of Kid Rock was staying while work was being done on her house.
Since then, the pair have been spotted out with her kids, having lunch everywhere from Malibu to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and – of course – at the beach.
Reportedly their first date: a ride to the beach on Padgett’s golf cart.
