Russell Brand, the English comedian and actor known for his outspoken nature, has taken to his social media platforms to vehemently deny allegations of criminal misconduct that are reportedly set to be published in two major UK newspapers. In a series of videos, Brand addresses the allegations and expresses his concern about character attacks and the nature of the accusations.
The comedian revealed that he had received two disturbing letters from mainstream media outlets, believed to be Channel 4 and Rupert Murdoch-owned newspapers, The Times and The Sunday Times. These letters allegedly contained what Brand describes as “astonishing attacks” on his character, along with “very serious” criminal allegations related to his well-known struggle with sex addiction.
Brand clarified that the allegations in question pertain to a period when he was active in the entertainment industry, and during that time, he was admittedly promiscuous. However, he emphasized that all his relationships during that period were consensual, a fact he was transparent about then and is reiterating now.
Over the years, Russell Brand has transformed himself into a media figure who critiques and challenges news reporting and its perceived corruption. He suggests that these allegations are part of a broader agenda to control voices and spaces like his.
The comedian expressed willingness to accept discussions about his past consensual conduct but vehemently refuted the “very, very serious criminal allegations” being levied against him. He claimed to know witnesses whose evidence contradicts the narrative being constructed by the two mainstream media outlets.
While the exact publication date of these allegations remains unclear, Russell Brand’s videos suggest that they could be released soon. Additionally, a special episode of Channel 4’s investigative journalism series, Dispatches, is scheduled to air at 9 PM UK time. The topic of the show has not been disclosed.
Notably, entrepreneur Elon Musk expressed sympathy for Russell Brand in response to his video, stating, “Of course. They don’t like competition,” hinting at potential motivations behind the allegations.
