Pamela Anderson arrives at World Cup to support boyfriend

Pamela Anderson secretly arrived at the World Cup on Tuesday to watch her boyfriend, who is a member of the French national team take on Belgium in the semifinals, according to a person close to the actress.

The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity due to privacy concerns on the situation.

Anderson, 51, has been dating French defender Adil Rami since the pair met at the Monaco Grand Prix in May 2017.

Anderson landed in Russia wearing a diamond Cartier Panther ring, and the person hinted to USA TODAY Sports that Anderson and Rami will soon be announcing they are engaged to be married.

“I expect big things on the horizon from them,” the person said.

Anderson, the former “Baywatch” star who is part Russian, was keen to avoid taking focus away from the French team in its bid to add its second World Cup title. Instead of sitting with the other player wives and girlfriends she was ushered to a VIP lounge, where French President Emmanuel Macron and the Qatar royal family were also situated.

Anderson has become a soccer fan since her and Rami became serious, and was seen at his games for Marseille in France’s Ligue 1 last season.

While still acting, Anderson is also a passionate and outspoken advocate for animal rights and has campaigned extensively for an improvement in their treatment internationally.

Pamela Anderson Says ‘Vegan Food Is Not Enough’ in Fight Against Plastic Pollution

Actor and longtime animal rights activist Pamela Anderson took to Twitter over the weekend to urge her followers to stop using plastic after she received vegan takeout lunch in a plastic bag.

“We need to use what we have – and consume no more plastic,” she wrote. “The plastic take away container even if full of vegan food is still not good enough.”

In a comment following the initial post, Anderson said she had “already failed” in her own effort to stop using plastic, citing beauty products, toothbrush, shampoo, blow dryer, “it’s everywhere,” she said. “Î’ve only just started my day,” using the hashtag #beaware to call her followers attention to the issue.

Anderson joins a growing number of celebrities taking a stand against single-use plastic. In May, vegan musician Moby urged fellow celebrities including former President Barack Obama to give up plastic water bottles.

“Horrifying fact: we use one million plastic water bottles, every minute of every day and by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish,” Moby explained. “And giving up plastic water bottles is really, really easy. You just replace it with a reusable water bottle.”

In June, for World Environment Day, celebrities including actors James Cromwell, William Shatner, and Barbara Hershey, model Gisele Bündchen, and conversationist and primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall, all pledged to give up single-use plastics.

Plastic pollution has become a significant threat to the world’s oceans and marine life. Films such as Chris Jordan’s recently released “Albatross” highlight the immense threat plastic poses to marine life, including seabirds like the albatross. Fish, birds, and other marine animals often consume plastic they mistake for food. Or, they eat other animals who consumed plastic.

An estimated 5 to 13 million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean every year, with most of it coming from communities within 30 miles of shorelines. Recent data suggested there may be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050.

Seattle just became the first major U.S. city to ban single-use plastic straws. McDonald’s says it’s replacing plastic straws at its restaurants starting in the UK, and a growing number of global campaigns aim to reduce plastic straw use. In the U.S. alone more than 500 million plastic straws are thrown away every day.

Pamela Anderson Begs Kanye West to Help WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange


A week after opening up about her relationship with Julian Assange and sharing why she’s concerned about the safety of the controversial WikiLeaks founder, Pamela Anderson is now asking Kanye West to help her “set him free.”

In a letter to the 40-year-old rapper, shared by TMZ Thursday, Anderson started her note by asking West his “thoughts” on Assange.

“Hi Kanye Hope you are well I was wondering about your thoughts on Julian Assange,” wrote the Baywatch star, 50. “I support him and I know you value Free Speech – Visibility is good for him especially in America. Where they are trying to put him away for life or worse for exposing corruption in governments.”

Anderson added that she believes “they are trying to kill [Assange].” “It is Torture,” wrote the actress, sharing that Assange has “been locked in a small room for almost 6 years in London at the Ecuadorian Embassy.”

“And he now can have no visitors. No Phone calls or internet. They are squeezing him,” continued Anderson, who previously revealed that she hasn’t spoken to Assange in nearly a month, with Assange’s Internet access cut off by the Ecuadorean government.

Assange has been at the embassy for the past six years after claiming political asylum in order to avoid facing extradition to Sweden over a rape allegation he has long refuted. The hacker is also wanted by the United States for espionage charges in relation to WikiLeaks’ publication of classified information.

“He is genius,” Anderson added. “A real world leader that young people love.”

Anderson — who has been at the center of dating rumors with Assange — went on to say that she would like “to seek more voices and share more about his fight.”

“Public support could set him free,” said Anderson. “Media is monopolized So some brave voices are the only Hope to break through.”

The mom of two also shared how she’s “always supported” West’s “no filter” attitude.

“You speak your mind,” wrote Anderson. “And you make an impact. I’m sure a lot of people feel like you – They just are stuck in what society says is OK to say.”

Anderson concluded the note by telling West to just let her know if he wants to know more about Assange. “Or just look at his life and writing,” said Anderson. “How he has sacrificed for the truth. I think you’d admire him. Take care of you.”

The star signed the note with a heart and her first name, along with a shout out to West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, “for going #FurFree.”

West has recently been very vocal about “free thought,” and caused controversy after he implied slavery was a “choice” for African-Americans during an interview on TMZ Live on May 1.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published on May 2, Anderson talked about how she first met Assange “years ago” through punk designer Vivienne Westwood.

Though Anderson has remained coy about the nature of their relationship, she called Assange “one of my favorite people” in one of her many lengthy posts on her website.

As for their conversations, Anderson told THR that they often cover a variety of topics.

“We talk about everything. We talk about the Bible, we talk about what’s happening with my kids, what’s happening with his family,” she recalled. “It’s not just about politics, even though I do take a lot of notes and it’s so overwhelming, the information he gives me.”

Anderson also shared that she’s worried for Assange telling THR that she believes he’s in “grave danger.”

“He’s cut off from everybody,” said Anderson, adding that she was even denied access to see him during a trip to London in April.

She continued: “The air and light quality [at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London] is terrible because he can’t keep his windows open and he can’t get any sunlight. Even prisoners can go outside, but he can’t.”

Anderson, who is a vegan activist, also revealed that she brings Assange food.

“I’m always bringing him vegan food, but he eats very simply,” said Anderson. “I talked to him on the phone the day [his Internet] was shut off. He sent me an urgent call. And now, nothing.”
