After spending several years of seeking refuge inside of the Ecuadorian embassy, Julian Assange’s pending rape case has been dropped. The investigation against the WikiLeaks founder has been halted by Sweden’s Director of Public Prosecution, according to the Daily Mail.
Anderson’s reaction came by way of retweeting the news as it broke on Twitter via Wikileaks. The former Baywatch star followed up her supportive tweets with a photo of Assange smiling.
Earlier this year, the 49-year-old actress described the Wikileaks founder as “one of the most important people in the world.” Anderson added, “I met him through Vivienne Westwood, who wanted us to meet… We started seeing each other every month, and now we see each other a lot more regularly.”
The pair has never officially confirmed the romance — at the same time, Anderson refused to deny the relationship while making a late night visit to Julian in March. Assange now faces arrest if he leaves the embassy in London despite the rape case being dropped.
Following his failure to surrender to the court in June of 2012, a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates’ Court for the arrest of Julian Assange. Scotland Yard said it was obliged to execute this warrant.
Pamela Anderson has reportedly been dating Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, since 2016. The former Baywatch star has been seen on a number of occasions taking food to him at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
Anderson has spoken highly of Assange, “I do really think he’s one of the most important people in the world, and I think what he does is historic; it’s very important… He’s very brave and he sacrificed a lot for all of us, every civilian.”

Romance rumors between Pamela Anderson and Julian Assange have been sparked once again after Anderson penned an open love letter to the WikiLeaks founder titled, “My Julian.” Anderson, 49, took to her website to express her feelings and thoughts on Julian Assange. The former Playboy pin-up gushed over Assange, 44, and said he encompasses “tremendous strength and stamina” even in his vulnerable situation.
“Julian Assange is the most intelligent, interesting, and informed man in existence. Yes –I think he’s quite sexy.”
Anderson had previously asserted that the 2010 rape allegations against Assange are simply not true. The model said the WikiLeaks founder ruffled a few “very powerful feathers-who will stop at nothing to discredit him… or worse.”
Pamela asserted that whenever the word “rape” is mentioned next to Assange’s name, this is an example of defamation. The former Baywatch actress said she is done watching the news as she has realized there is far too much propaganda to sift through.
“We are all innocent until proven guilty… And, there is no rape – it is a case of condom or not. It is ridiculous.”
Pamela Anderson has since declared that she wants to be an advocate for men falsely accused of rape.

In February, Pamela engaged rumors when asked on Loose Women if she was dating the whistleblower. In fact, Anderson said the rumors were flattering and said she has what it takes to be an effective “First Lady.”
“Since then I feel a genuine closeness to Julian. I have had more stimulating conversation with this man than all my ex-husbands and lovers combined… Our intentions were not to become romantic, but to join forces… The rumors are flattering. I think I might have what it takes to be an effective First Lady.”
In a radio interview, Assange called Anderson “an attractive person with an attractive personality and whip-smart” but declined to confirm a romantic relationship, according to USA Today.
