British media report rape and emotional abuse allegations against Russell Brand

British media report rape and emotional abuse allegations against Russell Brand

I have to say we do finally have a bit more information and it does make quite a
disturbing read the allegations that are made in this co-authored piece
between the Sunday Times.
the Times and Channel 4’s dispatches.
Of course we
had that video overnight with Russell Brand denying any serious criminal
wrongdoing in this case.
We now know though what the allegations are.
They
relate to a seven-year period that took place during the height of Russell
Brand’s fame.
So within the period of 2006 to 2013.
four women have alleged
sexual assaults and in one case rape.
This was a time when at one stage he was
presenting for BBC Radio 2.
Also before that he was presenting for Channel 4’s
Big Brother’s Big Mouth.
Now one woman alleges that Brand raped her over
in Los Angeles later on during this period when he was working in Hollywood
as a film actor.
She alleges that Brand raped her against a wall in his Los
Angeles home.
A second woman relating to a case in the UK alleges that Brand
assaulted her when he was 31 and she was 16 and still at school.
She details a
couple of occasions.
one of which where he sent a driver to pick her up and she
says he referred to her as the child.
Recommended she read the book
Lolita and she says he was emotionally abusive and controlling during the
relationship that they had which lasted for about three months.
Now a third woman
claims that he sexually assaulted her while she worked with him in Los Angeles
and the fourth woman that has been willing to go on the record.
all of
these women have wanted to protect their anonymity in this though.
but the
fourth woman has described being sexually assaulted by Brand and him
being physically and emotionally abusive towards her during a relationship that
we had.
Of course we know overnight Brand preempted this.
he went on the
record putting on YouTube and his social media platforms his denial saying he
vehemently disputes and refutes all of these claims that are being made and
putting that video out on social media.
Let’s hear a short clip of that now.
Amidst this litany of astonishing rather baroque attacks are some very serious
allegations that I absolutely refute.
These allegations pertain to the time
when I was working in the mainstream.
when I was in the newspapers all the
time.
when I was in the movies and as I’ve written about extensively in my
books I was very very promiscuous.
Now during that time of promiscuity the
relationships I had were absolutely always consensual.
Not only does this
really open up the fact that Russell Brand clearly will have to answer many
of these allegations and we will expect.
we certainly know that tonight he is
performing a comedy gig in Wembley so it’s going to be interesting to see
whether or not that goes ahead.
But this also opens up really a whole can of
worms for the BBC and Channel 4 as well.
How much of the allegations that
are made.
whether or not they were actually across any of this and we’re
aware of this before these claims have been made at any earlier date.
So it
really is going to be interesting to see how this story develops now and really a
lot more questions for the BBC and Channel 4 on this.
