Tommy Lee is buying a luxury Dubai island for ex-wife Pamela Anderson.
The Mötley Crüe drummer has decided to buy 'Greece' in The World project - a
manmade archipelago of 300 islands in the shape of the world currently being
built off the Dubai coast.
Tommy is hoping he and Pam - who have been divorced for nine years - can
spend time there with their two sons.
The 44-year-old rocker told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "I've been
doing a lot of research on Dubai property and The World project.
"We're going to buy Greece because I'm Greek originally. Pammy actually
turned me on to the whole thing.
"Life is good now because I'm seeing my boys again."
Pamela married Tommy in 1995. The couple divorced in February 1998, after
Tommy was convicted of domestic abuse charges.
The former 'Baywatch' star later claimed she had contracted hepatitis C from
a needle she had shared with Tommy.
The pair have recently healed their long-term rift for the sake of their
sons, Brandon, 10, and Dylan, nine.
Pamela, 39, married US musician Kid Rock last summer but they split four
months in November.
Dubai has become a hotspot for the rich and famous - with the likes of David
and Victoria Beckham already owning holiday homes there.
The World is a man-made archipelago of 300 islands in the shape of a world map currently being built off the coast of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The World is one of a series of artificial island projects in Dubai, along with the Palm Islands, and like the other islands The World is being built primarily using sand dredged from the sea. The World is the brainchild of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai.
Each island ranges from 23,000 m² to 84,000 m² (250,000–900,000 square feet or 5.7–21 acres) in size, with 50–100 m of water between each island. The development will cover an area of 9 km in length and 6 km in width, surrounded by an oval breakwater. The only means of transport between the islands will be by boat and helicopter. Prices for the islands will range from $15 million (USD) to $45 million (USD). The average price for an island will be around $25 million (USD). Dredging started in 2004 and in March of 2007 The World is around 90% complete.
