The 48-year-old has been accused of rape, assault and emotional abuse by at least five women- including a teenager.
In a bombshell expose by The Times the alleged victims said they were attacked by Brand between 2006 and 2013 – allegations that Brand has repeatedly denied and insisted his relationships were “always consensual”.
It comes as Russell used to tell drug addicts to apologise for their behaviour a few years back, it has emerged.
Back in 2018, gave talks across the UK and abroad about recovery following the release of his book Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions.
The book pedals its own 12-step recovery programme, with one reading: “Prepare to apologize to everyone for everything affected by your being so f****d up.”
Another step is to “watch out for f****d up thinking and behaviour and be honest when it happens.”
In one of his visits, Brand gave a talk at the Ibiza Calm clinic in Spain.
A press release at the time described Brand as a “long-time friend” and said he had “attended a meeting and delivered an inspirational talk to clients, sharing his unique blend of honesty, humour, wisdom and advice.”
A furious employee at the clinic told the Olive Press the current allegations facing the presenter amount to a “witch hunt.”
The allegations against Russel range from rape to sexual assault to emotional and physical abuse.
One of the alleged victims claimed that the comedian raped her up against a wall at his home in Los Angeles.
Nadia (not her real name) claimed Brand apologised to her when she texted him to say “When a girl [says] no it means no” after she had been treated at a rape crisis centre, saying he was “very sorry” and would “make it up to her with love and kindness”.
Another woman claimed she was sexually assaulted by Brand aged just 16.
The girl, given the pseudonym Alice, also claimed he referred to her as “the child” during a three-month-long abusive relationship.
The third alleged victim, known as Phoebe, said that she worked with Brand, and claimed he sexually assaulted her before threatening legal action if she spoke out.
Speaking about the alleged attack she recalled Russell’s eyes “turning black like the devil” as he allegedly pinned her to the bed and tried to have sex with her.
Another woman accused him of sexually assaulting her as well as being both emotionally and physically abusive.
BBC and Channel 4 have removed content featuring Russell in the wake of the scandal.
Brand was also backed by controversial influencer Andrew Tate, who called the allegations against him “crazy”.
