Russell Brand denies ‘extremely disturbing’ criminal allegations ahead of exposé in the UK

Russell Brand is trying to clear his name before it’s set to be dragged through the mud.

The British comedian, 48, posted a video on Instagram Friday in which he emphatically refuted the forthcoming criminal allegations that will reportedly be published about him soon via two mainstream media outlets in the UK.

“I have received two extremely disturbing letters, or a letter and an email, one from a mainstream media TV company, one from a newspaper, listing a litany of egregious and aggressive attacks,” he shared in the clip, captioned, “This is happening.”

“Amidst this litany of astonishing, rather baroque attacks, are some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute.”

Brand did not disclose the exact allegations made against him, but hinted that they pertain to some form of sexual misconduct since he then began defending his “promiscuous” past.

“When I was in the movies and as I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous,” the “Get Him to the Greek” star said. “During that time of promiscuity, the relationships that I had were absolutely always consensual.”

Brand’s brash outspokenness about sex has been well-documented, as he stated. For instance, in 2013, he told the Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian when taking over hosting duties on “Chelsea Lately” that he wanted to have “group sex” with them.

“I’m vulnerable to the concept of a KKK threesome,” he told the reality stars at the time in front of a live audience.

The comedian admitted to being “promiscuous” but said all sexual acts were “consensual.”

The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star then said to Kim, 42, who was pregnant at the time, “I think pregnant women are radiant and beautiful and the idea of lactation is an interesting one.”

Brand said in his new video that he now thinks perhaps he was “too transparent” about his sexuality, but noted that he thinks that openness has been “metastasized into something criminal” that he “absolutely” denies.

“[It] makes me question, ‘Is there another agenda at play?’ Particularly when we’ve seen coordinated media attacks before,” he added, citing when Joe Rogan was accused of using a “horse dewormer” to treat COVID-19 when it was actually a medically-approved drug for humans.

“It feels to me like there is a serious and concerted agenda to control these kinds of spaces and these kinds of voices,” Brand said.

In recent years, the “Rock of Ages” star has shifted from acting in films to blasting powerful establishments such as “Big Pharma,” prompting many to believed that Brand is, in fact, being unjustly targeted.

“Land of the free until you disagree. 🙄,” one person wrote in the comments section of his video.

Another added, “Keep fighting the good fight Russell. Light always casts out all darkness.”

Brand reiterated in his video, “What I seriously refute are these very, very serious, criminal allegations,” before noting that there are “witnesses whose evidence directly contradicts the narratives that these two mainstream media outlets are trying to construct, apparently, in what seems to me to be a coordinated attack.”

“I don’t want to get into this any further because of the serious nature of the allegations but I feel like I’m being attacked and plainly they are working very closely together,” he added.

“We are obviously going to look into this matter because it’s very, very serious. In the meantime, I want you to stay close, stay awake … if you can, please, stay free.”

It has not been confirmed which media outlets are set to blast Brand later on Saturday, but many UK media outlets, including The Independent, have reported that the Channel 4 series “Dispatchers” has something in the works.

Viewers reportedly noticed on the channel’s schedule for Saturday that they are set to air a “special” 90-minute investigation about an unnamed subject, which many suspect will be Brand.

The program is set to air at 9 p.m. local time, which is 4 p.m. ET.
