The New York Post has an extensive interview with Pamela Anderson‘s new husband’s ex-partner.
Anderson married handyman Dan Hayhurst in a secret ceremony on Christmas of last year, after he had worked on her property in the Canadian town of Ladysmith.
Now his heartbroken ex Carey, who had been living with him and bringing up his two children for the past five years, has told how she was blindsided by the affair and knew nothing of their marriage until she read about it online.
Choice comments from the interview below:
“I decided to speak out because I want people to know that my almost five-year relationship, with three children involved, ended because of the affair Pam and Dan started while he was still with me.
“It’s sad that people celebrate this and cheer them on, when it started with deceit, denials and life-shattering choices for all the people involved.
“We were all totally blindsided by this, it’s been so hard for us. And it’s not just me and the kids, lots of people have been hurt by them. Dan has lost friendships and business relationships because of this.”
As she recounts the story of their growing relationship. it seems Pam and Dan apparently didn’t get along at first.
Carey said things started to change at the end of last March, with Dan spending more and more time out of the house.
She continued: “The worm turned. Covid happened and it just seemed to happen overnight.
“Dan would stay at her house and not come home, and here I am taking care of the kids.
“At first he denied it when I confronted him but then, finally, I asked him, ‘Are you sleeping with Pam? He said, ‘All I’m going to say is I’ve crossed the line’.
“At first he said, ‘I want you to stay in our house. I don’t want you to go. I just need to figure things out’.
“Later he apologised to me. He said, ‘Carey, I love you. I don’t know what is going on right now. I’m not in my right head right now. I’m not in a good space’.
“He asked me to give him time to figure things out so I just let him do what he was doing.
“And there was no turning back by then. I had met Pam and had gone to dinner with her. My daughter used to work for her. I couldn’t believe it.”
Carey’s daughter Denise, 21, who worked as a labourer at Pam’s home, told The Sun of discovering Dan’s relationship:
“I was shocked when I learned about it.
“I just thought, ‘How can this even be a thing?’ I’m here working with them full-time and I had no idea.
“And the fact that he had a family, we were a blended family, he has two young kids and obviously she’s quite a lot older.
“I was so shocked. It’s something so unreal, like something straight out of the movies. I can’t believe it. Everyone thinks it’s this lockdown love story and nobody knows that there was an affair and there’s this family involved.
“And I think the hardest part is that people are being fed this one-sided fairytale story when in reality there’s so much more to it.
“It’s damaged a lot of people’s lives. It’s been really difficult for my mum.
“She totally stepped up and was a full-time mum to those kids. It’s been hard to watch her go through that.
