The founder behind the highly controversial website WikiLeaks, Julian Assange is getting a whopping $1.5 million to spill his guts in an autobiography. He tells the London Sunday Times:

“I don’t want to write this book, but I have to,” “I have already spent 200,000 pounds [$380,000] for legal costs and I need to defend myself and to keep WikiLeaks afloat.

He received an $800,000 advance from Alfred A. Knopf who will publish the book in the US.
