Russell Brand is accused of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse

London – British actor and presenter Russell Brand He has been accused by four women of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse, according to an investigation carried out by the newspapers “The Times” and “The Sunday Times”, and television “Channel 4”.

The four women claimed to have suffered sexual assault by Brand between 2006 and 2013, at the height of his fame as a presenter on the United Kingdom and actor in hollywoodwhile other women said they had suffered from his behavior “controlling, abusive and predatory.”

In a video that Brand had posted today on his social networks before the accusations came to light, he denied having committed the “serious accusations” that the media participating in the investigation had pointed out to him in separate letters, without specifying what he was referring to.

In an investigation lasting more than a year, at least four victims of attacks agreed to speak with journalists, as well as others who reported their contact abusive and harassing. Most asked to remain anonymous.

One of them said that Brand, star of films such as “Get him to the Greek” and former BBC presenter, raped her against a wall in his Los Angeles home.

She was treated at a rape care center that same day, according to medical records to which the media had access.

In text messages she wrote to Brand hours later, she told him that she had been feeling scared and that “when a girl says NO it means no.” To which he responded that she was “very sorry.”

Another accused the actor of having sexually assaulted her when he was 31 years old (he is now 48) and she was only 16, by forcing him to perform fellatio from which he could only escape by punching him in the belly.

A third explained that Brand had sexually assaulted her when they worked together in Los Angeles and had threatened to sue her if she went public, while another described having also been sexually assaulted by him.

The authors of the investigation interviewed victims, viewed private messages and emails, examined medical notes and analyzed the books and shows that Brand presented.

Although it was known that the actor suffered from a sexual addiction for which he was treated in a clinic, this is the first time that this type of practice on his part has come to light.

The Dispatches program on “Channel 4” plans to broadcast this Saturday at 9:00 p.m. the documentary “Russell Brand: In plain sight”, with the testimonies of the victims.

Before the media published his exclusive on Saturday morning, Brand denied these accusations in a video.

The controversial actor and comedian, best known in recent years for his defense of conspiracy theories, claims to have received letters from a television station and a newspaper that included “a litany of extremely atrocious and aggressive attacks.”

“So I was very, very promiscuous and the relationships I had were always consensual. I was always transparent with them, perhaps even too transparent,” he noted, and wondered “if there is a coordinated plan behind these accusations.”

In recent years, Brand has become a prominent defender of conspiracy theories regarding issues such as the 9/11 attacks in 2001 or the coronavirus pandemic.
