Russell Brand denies Allegations of Molestation on a Movie Shoot


February 15, 2024

English comedian and actor, Russell Brand has denied sexually assaulting a woman on a film set, saying his accuser has a “faulty memory of the events”.

In a civil lawsuit in November, the woman accused the actor and comedian of exposing himself and assaulting her while filming Arthur in 2010.

But his lawyers have said the lawsuit is “premised on the false claim” that he was visibly intoxicated at the time.

In legal papers filed on Tuesday, Brand’s lawyers argued that he was playing a drunk character but was sober in reality, while the woman appeared to be “unable to distinguish acting from reality”.

Brand is also facing a number of other accusations of rape, sexual assaults and emotional abuse between 2006 and 2013.
