Melbourne, Feb 11 (ANI): Julian Assange, founder of whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, has been accused of abusing his cat in an explosive new book.

The book, by former WikiLeaks insider Daniel Domscheit-Berg, also claims Assange had a habit of chasing young women who would "know their role" and not question his actions.

Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Websites is billed as a warts-and-all account of Domscheit-Berg's time as chief programmer and media spokesman.

"Julian's main criterion for a woman was simple. She had to be young. Preferably younger than 22," the Courier Mail quoted Domscheit-Berg as saying in the book.

"And it went without saying that she couldn't question him. 'She has to be aware of her role as a woman,' he used to say."

Assange also used to "boast about how many children he had fathered in various parts of the world ... Whether he took care of any of these alleged children, or whether they existed at all, was another question."

Domscheit-Berg calls the 39-year-old Australian "brilliant" but "paranoid" and labeled him a "megalomaniac" whose personal hygiene and eating habits suggested he was "brought up by wolves."

He even accuses Assange of abusing his cat. (ANI)
