AceShowbiz - Pamela Anderson has reached out to Kanye West and urged the rapper to help her exiled friend Julian Assange. The WikiLeaks founder claimed political asylum at London's Ecuadorian Embassy and has been holed up there for years as world leaders want him brought to justice for leaking top secret government information online.
Pam was a frequent visitor to Assange and kept in touch with the journalist and computer programmer up until a few weeks ago, when she claims his Internet use was cut off by diplomatic officials. And now she fears he is in serious trouble.
"I talked to him on the phone the day it (Internet) was shut off. He sent me an urgent call. And now, nothing," the former "Baywatch" star recently told The Hollywood Reporter. "He's been wrongly accused of so many things, but this is a way of keeping him down and keeping him ineffective."
The actress and model has now called on Kanye's help in a new letter addressed to the rapper and obtained by TMZ, in which she opens up about her fears, suggesting Assange "thinks people are trying to kill him."
Pam believes Assange just needs more people to speak out in his defense, and she is convinced outspoken Kanye is just the guy to lead her campaign. "I've always supported your 'no filter' - you speak your mind. And you make an impact," she writes in the letter. "I'm sure a lot of people feel like you - they just are stuck in what society says is OK to say."
