Julian Assange boasts of having fathered love children around the world, according to ex-WikiLeaker Daniel Domscheit-Berg. "He seemed to enjoy the idea of lots and lots of Julians, one on every continent. Whether he took care of any of these alleged children, or whether they existed at all, was another question," Domscheit-Berg writes in a leaked excerpt from his upcoming book Inside WikiLeaks.

Other former WikiLeaks volunteers confirm that Assange has at least four children born out of wedlock, the oldest of them 20 and the youngest just 6 months old. Swedish authorities have been informed of the little Assanges as they investigate sexual assault accusations against him, which include deliberately ripping a condom during sex. "No one knows what went on between him and his accusers, but it's clear Assange is not the world's biggest proponent of protected sex," Gawker notes.
