Rick Salomon & Paris Hilton, and other celebrities

One of the reasons why Rick Salomon managed to become successful is the fact that he had relations with a number of female celebrities.

The first poker player’s wife was the American actress, singer, voice artist and comedian Elizabeth Daily (also known as Eg Daily). They married in 1995 and in five years, they divorced. Eg Daily and Rick Salomon have two children – Hunter and Tyson.

In 2000, Rick Salomon dated Paris Hilton. The affair was short but stormy. As a result, after breaking up, Salomon released the disc "One Night in Paris" with Paris and Rick Salomon naked, which was the couple’s home video. The film appeared shortly before the release of the reality show “The Simple Life”, in which Paris Hilton debuted on TV, and became a sensation. Following a statement by Paris that she was not conscious of anything that was happening and recorded on the film, Rick Salomon sued her for defamation. Hilton filed a counterclaim over the video's release. However, in July 2005, the case was dismissed. According to statements, Hilton received $400,000, as well as a percentage of record sales. However, later, in one of the interviews, Paris stated that she did not receive any money. The above-mentioned tape with Hilton and Rick Salomon nude is still in the public domain.

In 2002, the poker player married to the well-known actress, television director and producer Shannen Doherty. However, in 2003, they divorced.

The next player’s wife became the popular actress Pamela Anderson. They met while playing poker. Anderson lost $250,000 to Salomon. After that, they started dating and two months later, they applied to get married at a registry office. The couple first married in 2007, having lived together for only two months. In 2014, their second marriage took place. This time, it lasted a little longer – seven months before Anderson threatened her husband with another divorce. Afterwards, the couple broke up.

According to court documents, the popular actress claimed that Salomon once had tried to strangle her with a pillow during sex, accused her of eating fish (she was apparently a vegan), and also threatened to made her nude photos public. Besides, in the court, Pamela claimed that in 2014, Salomon concealed poker winnings of forty million dollars from the tax office.

Rick Salomon’s lawsuit against the Saudi sheikh about poker

A French court has ruled in a case between Rick Solomon and a member of one of Saudi Arabia's wealthiest families. Rick demanded from the sheikh two million and eight hundred thousand dollars, which, according to the player, the sheikh lost to him in a private poker game.

The High Court, however, took the side of the Saudi sheikh, following the law, which states that game debts are only chargeable in case of games involving weapons, horseback riding, chariot racing, tennis and other physical activity games. Salomon's lawyers insisted that their client's game lasted forty-eight hours, which required great stamina, and therefore related to physical activity. However, they did not manage to convince the court.

During the investigation, it became known that the sheikh spent $34 million over twenty-nine months at Aria Casino in Las Vegas. Despite his defeat in the trial court, Rick Salomon now hopes to use that fact on appeal. Therefore, the chance to return the honestly won money to the American still remains.
