Sacha Baron Cohen Says Borat Caused Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock to Divorce

Kid Rock apparently did not think Borat was very nice. On the Daily Beast’s Last Laugh podcast, Sacha Baron Cohen said that he believes the 2006 mockumentary was the reason for Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson’s divorce. Anderson was the object of Borat’s affection in the movie, the Beatrice to his Dante if you will. Cohen said that during a screening of the film, Rock “started screaming at Pam, saying she had humiliated herself.” When Cohen texted Anderson about the incident, and how she was doing, she allegedly replied that Rock was divorcing her. When Cohen asked why, Anderson texted back, “Because the movie.” The timeline adds up: Rock and Anderson split up November 27, 2006 — just week’s after Borat’s November 3 premiere. But Cohen perhaps gives himself too much credit. If your partner goes apeshit at the premiere for a movie you’re in, how solid could the marriage really be?
