Richard Allan "Rick" Salomon is a film producer, celebutante, and online gambling website owner known for his relationships with various female celebrities, including Elizabeth Daily, Shannen Doherty, Paris Hilton, and Pamela Anderson.

Salomon was born in Neptune, New Jersey, the son of a former executive vice president at Warner Bros., Robert Jess Salomon. He grew up in Wayside, New Jersey. He owned an online gambling site.

Salomon appeared on season two of PokerStars Big Game during week two.

In 2003, a sex tape featuring Salomon and then-girlfriend Paris Hilton was leaked onto the Internet. Shortly after the tape leaked, Salomon filed a lawsuit against the company distributing the tape and the Hilton family, whom he accused of tarnishing his reputation by suggesting that he had exploited Hilton.
Salomon further claimed in his $10 million suit that representatives of the Hiltons tried to discourage media outlets from playing excerpts of the tape by saying that Hilton was underage when the tape was made (which would have made showing the tape illegal), and were attempting to crush him to preserve the image they had created for her.
Hilton later sued the company that released the tape, Kahatani Ltd., for $30 million for violation of privacy and emotional distress.

In April 2004, Salomon began distributing the tape himself through adult film company Red Light District Video under the title 1 Night in Paris.
In July 2004, Salomon dropped his lawsuit against the Hilton family after Paris Hilton's privacy lawsuit was thrown out of court. Salomon and the tape's distributor, Red Light District Video, agreed to pay Hilton $400,000 plus a percentage of the tape's sale profit.

In 1995, Salomon married voice actress Elizabeth Daily. The couple had two daughters, Hunter and Tyson,before divorcing in 2000.

Three years later, Salomon married actress Shannen Doherty. The marriage was annulled after seven months.

On September 29, 2007, Salomon and actress Pamela Anderson applied for a marriage license in Las Vegas. Anderson had told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in September that she was engaged but did not name Salomon, referring to her fiancé only as a poker player. The couple were married on October 6, 2007 during a break between the 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows of "Hans Klok's The Beauty of Magic" at Planet Hollywood resort, where Anderson was starring as a magician's assistant. Salomon and Anderson separated less than ten weeks later and, on December 14, Anderson filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

Two days after filing for divorce, Anderson and Salomon were seen shopping together. Anderson later posted a message on her website indicating the couple were reconciling. However, on December 28, 2007, Anderson's attorney filed a proof of service of summons in Los Angeles Superior Court regarding the divorce claim.
In February 2008, Anderson filed to have the marriage annulled citing fraud as the reasoning. The following month, Salomon also filed for an annulment citing fraud.
The marriage was officially annulled on March 24, 2008.
