The rumors are true. Pamela Anderson’s divorce from rapper Kid Rock was caused by her involvement in the hit comedy "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," Sacha Baron Cohen confirmed on The Last Laugh podcast.

Speculation that the highly publicized divorce was fueled by Anderson's appearance in the movie began to swirl shortly after its release in 2006. At the time the former "Baywatch" bombshell had been married to Rock for three months but the couple divorced within weeks of the movie's release, The Guardian reported.

Many said the film had something to do with the breakup and tabloids reported that Rock felt his wife had humiliated herself.

At issue is the scene in which Cohen's fictional character Borat kidnaps Anderson from a book signing. Cohen explained that the scene had to be shot twice.

"The first time we did it at a book signing and I grabbed her over my shoulder and ran out with her and no one did anything," he told The Daily Beast. "I was like, what kind of fans are these? So we did it again and they started running after me."

When the couple broke up the New York Post reported that at a screening for the movie Kid Rock was incensed at the scene and yelled at Pam, saying “she had humiliated herself and telling her, 'You're nothing but a wh*re! You're a slut! How could you do that movie?'”. 

Cohen said he texted Anderson shortly after the film's screening to find out what Rock thought and was shocked to hear of the split.

"She texted back that they were getting divorced," he said. "I thought it was a joke... but then a few weeks later they got divorced and they put as a reason for divorce: Borat."

Cohen added that it was a shame that Anderson and Rock had split as "they were a fantastic couple," even better than "Julian Assange or whoever she dated later on."
