Pamela Anderson Defends Julian Assange

Pamela Anderson has defended Julian Assange once again and insisted the rape allegations made against him in 2012 were a “setup” as she spoke out about sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.

Anderson, 50, faced backlash last month after she suggested Harvey Weinstein’s accusers should have known what they were getting into by going into a hotel room alone. She has addressed the ongoing sexual misconduct scandal once again, while discussing the allegations made against her friend Assange, who is currently held up inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Appearing on BBC’s “Victoria Derbyshire programme” on Tuesday, the “Baywatch” alum explained of the WikiLeaks founder: “I would rather be a friend to Julian than anybody. I think he’s so full of information, has an incredible perspective and is a genius and is trying to help humanity.”

She added that it is “impossible” for Assange to leave the embassy after facing a rape allegation, which was dropped by Swedish authorities last year. Assange sought asylum in the embassy back in 2012 after losing court battles to avoid extradition to Sweden over the claims, which he denied all along.

Anderson insisted, “The best way to discredit somebody is to call them a rapist, or a pedophile. How do you get over that even if it’s not true? So I think this was a setup. This was not something that was true.”

Talking further about the #MeToo movement, Anderson insisted that young women “just have to be more careful.”

“Even in colleges I find young girls drinking and putting themselves in this situation, these boys have been away from home for the first time. They’re full of testosterone, especially with what people see on the internet these days. A woman in that position is in a dangerous position so you just have to be careful. We can ruin boys’ lives and women’s lives this way.”

However, the star denied that she was victim-blaming and said: “I’m a good person to discuss this because of my image. I’ve just learned to not put myself in positions where I could be in any danger.”

Pamela Anderson oozes 50s elegance

Work commitments took a back seat as Pamela Anderson paid her latest visit to close friend Julian Assange on Monday afternoon.

The former Baywatch star, 50, a staunch vegan and PETA campaigner, arrived with a bag full of healthy vegetarian food for beleaguered Assange, who has been living in political exile at London’s Ecuadorian embassy since 2012.

Sporting a chic fitted roll neck over a form-fitting pencil skirt, Pamela oozed 50s elegance as she made her way inside ahead of her latest visit with the controversial WikiLeaks founder, 46.

A smart polka-dot headscarf added to her retro look, while glossy black heels rounded things off.

In keeping with her vintage themed look, Pamela accessorised distinctively shaped sunglasses and a tasteful smart leather handbag.

Later that night she showed her support for acclaimed journalist Renata Avila, theatre director and activist Sarah Harrison and human rights lawyer Angela Richter, who were promoting their new book Women, Whistleblowing, WikiLeaks.

The actress, model and animal rights campaigner has previously stated that she has a simple friendship with the Australian Assange.

‘I wouldn’t say it’s romantic, but we are very close,’ she revealed in the sit-down chat with Megyn Kelly, which aired on her daytime talk show, Megyn Kelly Today in December.

Pamela confirmed she was introduced to Assange through fashion designer Vivienne Westwood previously during a visit to the Embassy of Ecuador in London.

She was first interested in learning from him about ways to become ‘more effective as an activist,’ she said, while speaking with Kelly.

Assange has been living in solitude in political asylum for some time now, after being accused in 2010 of sexual assault and rape against two women in Sweden – which he since denied.

Meanwhile Pamela is rumoured to be dating football player Adil Rami, 33, who is said to be leaving his native France to spend the holidays in Malibu.

A source told Us Weekly that her sons have already met her young lover and they approve.

‘The boys have previously met Adil and they fully approve of him for their mom,’ the source told the publication.

The pair are said to have met at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and have reportedly been ‘inseparable’ ever since.

Pam and boyfriend Spending Their First Christmas Together

Pamela Anderson will be spending the holidays with the lucky men in her life — including her soccer player boyfriend, Adil Rami!

A source tells Us exclusively that the international athlete, 31, will be traveling to Malibu to spend his first Christmas with Anderson and her sons, Brandon and Dylan, who she shares with ex Tommy Lee. “The boys have previously met Adil and they fully approve of him for their mom,” the source adds.

Anderson, 50, and Rami met earlier this year in Cannes and they have been inseparable ever since, with the French football star convincing the former Baywatch babe to move to Marseille to live with him. Despite their 19-year age difference, “Adil says Pamela is ‘an alien’ in the sense she is without age and on a constant quest to save the world. Age is a non-issue for them!” the source says.

“They live a very health-conscious and disciplined life together. He is good for her, fiercely protective,” the insider continues. “It’s really very romantic. He is incredibly proud of the work she does to protect refugees and animals. He brags about her a lot.”

Friends of Rami, who plays for the Marseille soccer team, have also remarked that the pair are “madly in love” and note that the couple count down the days until they are back together whenever they are apart.

The relationship might result in a happily ever after — Anderson was recently spotted at Chrome Hearts in Paris checking out engagement rings. “She loves Chrome Hearts aquamarine — and she hates blood diamonds,” the source reveals.

Anderson was previously linked to Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, but nowadays, they simply “share a mission to free the world by educating it.”
