Lady Gaga has tea with Assange

Lady Gaga dropped in for tea with Julian Assange during her trip to London.

The Born This Way singer - who launched her new perfume Fame at Harrods at the weekend - called into the Ecuadorian embassy where the WikiLeaks founder is holed up as he fights extradition to Sweden and a picture of the pair together has emerged on the internet.

Rapper M.I.A, who has been an avid campaigner for Assange's right to asylum in Ecuador, and paid several visits to him at the embassy apparently orchestrated the tea party.

She tweeted Gaga: "If ur at Harrods today, come visit Assange at the Ecuador embassy across the st. I'm there. Ill bring TEA and CAKE."

An embassy spokeswoman confirmed to The Daily Telegraph that Lady Gaga had visited but said she did not know whether M.I.A. had been there at the same time.
