Brand Russell lost his agent as a result of the shocking sexual assault allegations that came out over the weekend.

As we previously reported, four women came forward to accuse the 48-year-old comedian of rape, sexual assault, and emotional abuse in incidents that occurred between 2006 and 2013. In The Sunday Times exposé, one of the victims – who used the nickname Alice – she said she was only 16 years old when 30-year-old Russell began a three-month relationship with her in 2006. Her management at the time knew about their romance.

While the Forgetting star Sarah Marshall was “very charming and very attentive” at first, she said he became very controlling and “emotionally and sexually abusive.” At one point in the relationship, Alice said he even “brought his pen down her throat,” making her choke, and wouldn’t stop until he hit her hard in the stomach. Terrible.

Years after their breakup, Alice apparently contacted Russell’s talent agency Tavistock Forestco-founder Angharad Wood in 2020 and shared her terrifying experience with the actor. The victim told them she just wanted an apology. But instead, Alice received an “aggressive” message from a lawyer representing Russell claiming she wanted money. So they were aware of these serious allegations for three years and did nothing?! They just took his word for it? What the f**k.

It wasn’t until this week that the group decided to give up after learning about all the allegations from the Sunday Times. Why did the company act now? Tavistock Wood told Date in a statement they were “deeply disappointed” by Russell:

“Russell Brand denied the allegation made in 2020, but we now believe we were misled by him. TW has terminated all professional ties to Brand.”


Russell has denied the allegations. He preemptively fired back in a video posted on social media, insisting that these relationships were “always mutual”:

“These allegations relate to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies. And as I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promising. Now during that time of suspension, the relationships I had were completely, always consensual. I was always obvious about that then – almost too obvious. “

Despite his efforts to get ahead of this scandal, it is clear that Russell is facing the consequences – when it comes to his career and in the court of public opinion. Thoughts, Perezcious readers? Sound OFF in the comments below.
