(LONDON) — File this under people you didn’t expect to break bread together: Lady Gaga visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London Monday and ate dinner with him there, according to the Telegraph.
Gaga promoted her new perfume Fame with a tea party at the nearby Harrods department store before going to the embassy. She wore a black dress and a pointed witch’s hat. According to the Telegraph, they spent five hours talking and Gaga left after midnight.
Assange, who is wanted in Sweden over alleged sex assaults on two women, has been at the Ecuadorian embassy since June and has claimed asylum.
Why did they meet? What did they talk about? It’s unclear. Representatives for the embassy and Gaga did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment. But maybe this Sunday evening tweet from singer M.I.A. to Gaga has something to with it: “If ur at harrods today, come visit Assange at the Ecuador embassy across the st. im there. Ill bring TEA and CAKE.”
