Russell Brand news – latest: Katy Perry and Dannii Minogue comments resurface amid rape allegations
The Independent says The BBC and Channel 4 have pledged to investigate claims made about comedian Russell Brand after he was accused of rape, sexual assaults and emotionally abusing four women during the height of his fame.
The alleged assaults occurred between 2006 and 2013, while he was a presenter for BBC Radio 2 and Channel 4’s Big Brother spin-off, with the allegations including an assault on a 16-year-old girl.
Channel 4 has removed all programmes linked to Brand from its website after the allegations surfaced.
Meanwhile, resurfaced interviews reveal that Brand’s ex-wife Katy Perry described his behaviour as “very controlling”, while pop star Dannii Minogue also labelled him a “vile predator” in 2006.
The Metropolitan Police have said they are aware of “media reporting of a series of allegations of sexual assault” but had not received any reports in relation to this.
