Julian Paul Assange [Julian Assange] (born 3 July 1971) is an Australian editor, publisher, and activist who started WikiLeaks in 2006. WikiLeaks first gained international notoriety in 2010 whenever it published a number of releases provided by Chelsea Manning, a U.S. Army intelligence specialist. The Baghdad airstrike Collateral Murder video (April 2010), Afghanistan war logs (July 2010), Iraq war logs (October 2010), and Cablegate have been among the leaks (November 2010). The US government began a criminal inquiry into WikiLeaks after the 2010 releases.
Julian Assange Biography
Julian Assange was born on July 3, 1971, in Townsville, Queensland, to visual artist Christine Ann Hawkins (b. 1951) and anti-war activist and builder John Shipton. Before their son was born, the couple split up. Julian’s mother married Brett Assange, an actress with whom she managed a small theatre company and whom Julian considers his father when Julian was a year old (choosing Assange as his surname). In 1979, Christine and Brett Assange divorced. Christine then started dating Leif Meynell, also known as Leif Hamilton, who Julian Assange later described as “a member of an Australian cult” known as The Family. They split up in 1982.

Julian Assange personal life /Family, Wife
Assange married Teresa, a teen when he was in his teens, and the couple had a son named Daniel in 1989. Until 1999, the couple was divorced and fought over Daniel’s custody. Assange’s brown hair went white during the custody battle, according to his mother. In his 2011 memoir Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website, Daniel Domscheit-Berg claimed that Assange claimed to have fathered multiple children. In a January 2007 email, Assange mentioned that he had a daughter. Assange disclosed he had another child, a boy, in an open letter to French President Hollande in 2015.
He claimed that his youngest child, as well as the child’s mother, were both French. He further claimed that as a result of his work, his family had received death threats and abuse, prompting them to change their names and limit their contact with him.
In January 2022, Stella Moris and her supporters leave the High Court. Assange began dating Stella Moris, his South African-born lawyer, in 2015. They married in 2017 and have two sons: one born in 2017 and the other born in February 2019. Because she was concerned for Assange’s safety, Moris revealed their relationship in 2020.
On November 7, 2021, the pair announced that they were preparing legal action against Dominic Raab, the Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and Jenny Louis, the Governor of Belmarsh Prison. Raab and Louis have been charged by Assange and Moris for denying their and their two children’s human rights by preventing Moris and Assange from marrying. The jail service announced on November 11 that the couple had been granted permission to marry in Belmarsh prison, and the couple married on March 23, 2022.
