admin

Actor and comedian Russell Brand has been accused of the rape and sexual assault of four women. 

Brand, 48, denied the allegations in a video shared to his social media platforms on Friday, as he insisted his relationships have been “consensual.”

The actor said he received several messages from major media companies claiming he was involved in “very serious criminal allegations,” which he described as a “litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks,” on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Four women have claimed Brand sexually assaulted them between the years of 2006 and 2013, according to The Sunday Times. 

The allegations come after a joint investigation has been made public by The Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4 Dispatches. 

He added this was a time during his career when he was working “in the mainstream … As I have written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous [at that time].”

“Now, during that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual. I was always transparent about that then, almost too transparent, and I am being transparent about it now as well,” Brand continued.

Russell Brand is accused of raping, sexually assaulting 4 women, including a 16-year-old.

“To see that transparency metastasized into something criminal, that I absolutely deny, makes me question: is there another agenda at play?” he asked. 

After Brand addressed the rape accusations, celebrities, including Elon Musk, reacted to his video. 

“Of course. They don’t like competition,” Musk wrote. 

Fox News Digital reached out to representatives for Brand to seek further clarification on his X video and did not immediately receive a response in time for publication.
