The former Baywatch actress fears she was secretly filmed on secret visits to the WikiLeaks mastermind when he was holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in the U.K, according to an insider.
WikiLeaks was allegedly offered $3 million for footage believed to be recorded by the Ecuadorian officials during 47-year-old Assange’s seven-year stay at the London embassy.
The cache of footage is believed to contain his secret meetings with Anderson, 51, who has leapt to his defense since he was expelled from the embassy to face extradition to America.
A source said: “Pam’s visits have been ‘conjugal,’ and Julian was always very pleased to see her. Now he’s been arrested, she is concerned that footage of them together will be released.
“The tape is being offered for cash, but if no money is forthcoming, then the people behind it could just release it for free.”
Any leak could be payback for fading star Anderson – the subject of a sex-tape scandal in 1995 when footage of her romping with husband Tommy Lee, now 56, was released online.
The actress – who divorced the Mötley Crüe founder in 1998 – had previously said: “I think I was in the Guinness Book of World Records for ‘most downloaded’ before the tape came out. It was devastating, and it was devastating to our marriage too, and really hard to get over. It was difficult on my family, on my kids, and everything. It was hard.”
Insiders claim she’s cynically sounding off about Assange’s incarceration to boost her profile.
The actress and ex-model – a frequent guest of Assange’s since they were introduced in 2014 – told the New York Post of his plight after he was dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy last week: “I’m deeply concerned about his health and well-being. His human rights have been abused before without sunlight, but this is extraordinary. Incommunicado. No visitors. No Internet. No phone calls. No access to outside world. This is torture — a slow, painful death at the hands of the U.S. and U.K. I feel for Ecuador. They have received so much pressure.”
But insiders question her motives for supporting the WikiLeaks mastermind. One said: “Her visits to the embassy have all been photographed and so created a way for Anderson to stay in the spotlight as her acting and modeling career has quieted down.”
The odd couple was introduced by Brit fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, a WikiLeaks acolyte who regularly visited Assange at the embassy and dedicated her spring/summer 2017 collection to him.
Over the years, Assange has hosted a star-studded lineup of visitors, including Lady Gaga, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, along with rapper MIA, and John Cusack.
