Pamela Anderson is bringing "a little help, a smile, and some glamour" to Julian Assange.
The former ‘Baywatch’ actress has sparked rumours she is romancing the WikiLeaks founder after she made a string of visits to the Ecuadorian Embassy in London – where he has been living under political asylum since 2012 after he was accused of rape during his 2010 visit to Sweden and amid fears he will be extradited to the US over claims made on his website – and she admits she enjoys taking him food and spending time with him because he lives in "dire circumstances" and she fully supports the actions he’s made.
Pamela – who has sons Brandon, 20, and Dylan, 19, with ex-husband Tommy Lee – said: "He’s living in dire circumstances so I like to bring a little help, and a smile, and some glamour.
"It’s so rare that he has someone to come and visit him and bring him things, and I want to be able to do that for him.
"It’s about support and I believe in what he is doing. Thank god for him. He’s sacrificed a lot for all of us.
"WikiLeaks is one of the only reliable news sources because it’s just the truth.
"I really believe history will look back on him as such an important person."
However, the 49-year-old beauty – who first met Julian in 2014 – refused to confirm whether she is in a relationship with the "great guy".
She told Grazia magazine: "It’s difficult to talk about when you’re under surveillance.
"But he’s a great guy. I don’t want to say anything about whether there’s a romance. So let’s say we’re just good friends."
