Russell Brand Denies Sexual Assault Allegations, Accuses Media of Coordinated Attack
Actor and podcast host Russell Brand took to video platform Rumble to vehemently deny allegations of sexual assault made against him by four women. The Sunday Times, in a joint investigation with The Times and Channel 4 Dispatches, reported the allegations, which span from 2006 to 2013, during Brand’s peak fame. One woman claims rape, while another alleges sexual assault when she was 16 years old. Brand called the accusations a “coordinated attack” and refuted them, stating that his past relationships were always consensual.
Media Outlets Accused of Constructing False Narratives
Brand criticized The Sunday Times and The Times for their handling of the allegations, claiming that they intentionally chose to anonymize the accusers’ names, making it difficult for him to directly refute the claims. He also accused the media outlets of working together in a coordinated attack against him, with witnesses contradicting their narratives. Brand’s legal team argued that this campaign was driven by a desire to undermine his status as an alternative media broadcaster competing with mainstream media.
Details of the Allegations

One woman claimed that Brand raped her in his Los Angeles home, with medical records suggesting she sought treatment at a rape crisis center on the same day. Another woman, who was in a relationship with Brand while still in school, accused him of forcing his penis down her throat. A third woman alleged sexual assault and subsequent threats of legal action if she spoke out. The fourth woman claimed Brand was both physically and emotionally abusive.
Support from Elon Musk and Tucker Carlson
Elon Musk, CEO of X (formerly Twitter), expressed support for Brand, suggesting that mainstream media dislikes competition. Tucker Carlson also chimed in, stating that criticizing powerful entities like drug companies and questioning the war in Ukraine often leads to similar attacks.
Of course. They don’t like competition.
