Rumours are flying that Pamela Anderson is dating Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Anderson has visited Assange four times in the past three months at Ecuadorean Embassy in London, where he has been holed up for four years.

Anderson was first seen visiting Assange in September 2014 for a meeting to discuss whether Assange could back Anderson's foundation. She has since been seen carrying bags of food into the residence. She once came bearing a package from sandwich shop Pret A Manger, another time she brought a bag of Whole Foods groceries. In late November, it was a box of wrapped treats.

Assange has avoided extradition to Sweden since 2012, where he is wanted for questioning over a rape allegation.

Both Assange and Anderson have connections to Russia. Assange is understood to receive leaks from the Kremlin, and Anderson starred in a trade show in 2015 before visiting Vladimir Putin's chief of staff in order to discuss wildlife conservation. She visited Russia again in December, and said she would "gladly" get Russian citizenship.

Assange and Anderson also share a passion for activism. Anderson has her own charity, The Pamela Anderson Foundation, which supports organisations and individuals who "stand on the front lines in the protection of human, animal, and environmental rights."

Wikileaks publishes classified or restricted materials.

During the 2016 United States Presidential campaign, Wikileaks published material from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign manager. US intelligence agencies believe Russia hacked the emails  and supplied them to Wikileaks, an allegation it denies.
