Russell Brand breaks silence in new video after he’s accused of sexual assault

Russell Brand announced he is moving to Rumble.

Over the weekend, The Sunday Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches published their bombshell investigation detailing allegations from four women who came forward with claims about incidents taking place between 2006 and 2013.

One of the women alleged the comedian raped her against a wall in his Los Angeles home in 2012.

A second accused him of assaulting her when he was 31 and she was 16 and still at school.

A third alleges sexual assault in Los Angeles and a fourth described being sexually assaulted by the star, and him being “physically and emotionally abusive” towards her.

In a pre-emptive video shared on YouTube before the exposé was published, Russell denied all accusations made against him and slammed them as “aggressive attacks”.

He admitted to being “very promiscuous” but said all his relationships were “consensual” and that he “refutes these very serious allegations”.

In the statement, he said: “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. 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. I was always transparent about that.”

On Monday, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s said that the allegations made against Russell are “very serious and concerning”.

His spokesman said in a statement: “As the Foreign Secretary said over the weekend, people should feel able to raise concerns where they have them and know they will be treated seriously and treated with sensitivity.

“The Prime Minister has been clear there should never be any space for harassment, regardless of where it is found.”

The Metropolitan Police has confirmed it is “aware” of the accusations and encouraged anyone who believes they have been a victim of sexual assault to come forward.

Channel 4 and production company Banijay UK, which produced Big Brother and its spin-offs, have both launched investigations. The BBC also said it was “urgently looking into the issues raised”.
