IT seemed that Pamela Anderson was happy to be living a quieter life after the days of Baywatch, rock-star exes and sex tapes.
With her dog sat on the passenger seat of her little car, she would drive to pick up fresh bread from her local boulangerie in the south of France while her footballer toyboy lover was playing for Marseille.
She looked like she was in a Renault Clio advert from the Nineties.
But while French World Cup winner Adil Rami, 33, acted the doting partner, he was also giving plenty of Va Va Voom to glamorous ex Sidonie Biemont — the mother of his three-year-old twins Zayn and Madi.
As The Sun told yesterday, Pammie, 51, accused the footballer of living a double life, branding him a “monster”, “sociopath” and a “narcissist”.
During an astonishing outburst on Instagram on Monday, she also claimed to have hired a bodyguard over fears Rami would attack her.

She rumbled his alleged cheating by speaking to Sidonie, 37, who believed his relationship with Pammi had fizzled out despite the pair being pictured in Malibu earlier this month.
Even by Pammi’s standards, this was an epic break-up to add to her roll call of bitter splits with her three ex-husbands — Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, singer Kid Rock and poker player Rick Salomon, who she married twice.
Treated like a ‘normal girl’
So how did Pammi’s romantic French love story turn into a horror show?
She met Rami at the 2017 Monaco Grand Prix.
He was playing for Spanish side Sevilla at the time but soon returned to Ligue 1 — where he made his name as a defender at Lille between 2006 and 2011 — to join Marseille.
Despite his lack of English, their relationship started to get serious and Pammi was by his side for what is likely to be the defining moment of his career, winning the World Cup with France last summer.
Rami, who was born in Morocco but qualifies to play for Les Bleus, is well known in his homeland for his celebrity romances.
His previous relationship with model Sidonie was regularly plastered across gossip magazines and the pair were seen at lavish events including the French Open tennis at Roland Garros — the same location where they first met in 2012.

TOMMY LEE – (1995-1998)
KNOWN as one of the sexiest and most destructive relationships in showbiz, Pammi’s marriage to the Mötley Crüe drummer, 56, made headlines around the world.
Defined by their sex tape, the pair lasted three years and had two children together.
KID ROCK – (2006-2007)
PAMMI had an on/off relationship with the singer until they married in 2006. They divorced a year later, with Kid Rock, 48, blaming the Baywatch actress for the split.
He said she openly criticised his mum and sister in front of his son from a past relationship.
RICK SALOMON – (2007-2008 and 2014-2015)
THE man who distributed his own sex tape with ex Paris Hilton, married Pammi in 2007 after a brief romance. She asked for an annulment citing “fraud” as a reason for the split.
They reconciled and got hitched again in 2014 but this time it lasted just six months.
They dated for six years, splitting just before he started an unlikely relationship with former Baywatch actress Pammi, 18 years his senior.
The footballer’s pals were surprised he chose to settle down given his reputation as a ladies’ man. But he was obsessed with her and his friends joked he followed Pammi around like a “puppy dog”.
That is despite the Playboy pin-up growing close to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, 47.
She and Rami bought a home in the sought-after Corniche-Kennedy area of the city, close to the beach, which features luxurious houses with stunning views towards the Med.
Speaking about her new life in France last August, the Barb Wire actress said: “I love the energy and I love that part of the world. It’s my new adopted home.”
Life was sweet, which prompted Rami’s bid to be Pammi’s husband No4.
He proposed in September last year, months after lifting the World Cup, but was turned down, with sources close to the model claiming she thought he was too immature and prone to “juvenile behaviour, partying and clubbing”.
The knock-back led to a brief split but they reconciled in March, much to the dismay of Pammi’s inner circle, who believed Rami was trying to cut her off from her family and friends.
Their fears were confirmed this week when Pammi finally called time on the relationship, exposing his alleged cheating, controlling behaviour and alluded to being a victim of domestic violence.
She wrote on Instagram: “I will leave France now. He has tried all. He has sent flowers, letters — I did not accept.
“He showed up to my hotel. Security took him away. I have a bodyguard because he scares me. He has hurt me and threatened me many times.”
Detailing her conversation with Sidonie, she said: “I’m glad I spoke to his ex. My God. He lied to her about all too. She’s also in shock and is very sad. It’s the evidence that I needed to move on. He can’t hurt us more.”

Rami was quick to respond the accusations, posting his own black-and-white picture of him with Pammi and writing: “In no case do I lead a double life, I am simply attached to preserve a lasting relationship with my children and their mother Sidonie for whom I have a deep respect.”
Sidonie also broke her silence yesterday, explaining that her “priorities have always been her two loves: Zayn and Madi”.
The footballer always faced a tough task winning over Pammi. She has always been adamant first husband Tommy Lee — the father of her sons Brandon, 23, and Dylan, 21 — was the “love of her life”.
That is despite Tommy — who made a sex tape with Pammi on their honeymoon in 1995 — being jailed for six months in 1998 for assaulting her.
She also contracted hepatitis C by sharing tattoo needles with him.
Pammi admitted in 2015 that there would never be another man like the Motley Crue drummer, saying: “There was Tommy and then there was nobody else.
“He was the love of my life. We had a wild and crazy beginning that was too much for both of us. It really was love at first sight. I only knew him for four days before I married him.”
They remain close, despite Tommy’s fractious relationship with Brandon, who punched him last June in an act of self-defence after claiming his dad was being drunk and aggressive.
But that is because Tommy treated Pammi like a “normal girl” and did not date her because of who she was, like many of her exes did.
She accepts she has been a trophy girlfriend throughout her life, with men desperate to be seen on the arm of a model who was considered to be the sexiest woman in the world during her Baywatch heyday.
Speaking last year, she lamented being treated like a sex symbol in her relationships. Pammi said: “When men try to put me on a pedestal, it’s the worst.

“It’s isolating and lonely to be so protected. It’s also someone that will cheat eventually. Thinking you are too perfect makes men insecure and have to seek attention from others.
“I just want to walk hand in hand through the streets and kiss and laugh and love. But some men have a fear of treating me as a normal girl.
“This is what I want more than anything.”
