She made her name as a Playboy pin-up but now former Baywatch TV star Pamela Anderson could be forced to bare all to the FBI who want to quiz her about her friendship with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
According to US website Radar Online, the 50-year-old faces a grilling over her visits to Assange who has been holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012 after being accused in Sweden of rape and sexual assault by two women.
Assange feared that if he went to Sweden to defend himself he would be extradited to America where he is wanted over Wikileaks’ releases of US military documents. Sweden dropped the sex charges last year.
Assange, 46, who still fears arrest by the US, tweeted: ‘The FBI has a new target: Pamela Anderson.’
The actress posted on social media: ‘I don’t mind being probed @FBI as long as it isn’t by Gina Haspel’ – the intelligence officer nominated by President Trump to be the next CIA boss. Anderson has said she ‘loves’ Assange but not romantically, saying: ‘He’s very brave and there’s nothing sexier than courage. I love him but I have a romantic partner.’
Anderson is dating French footballer Adil Rami, 32. She was introduced to Assange in 2014 by Vivienne Westwood.
The FBI declined to comment last night.
