  •  Brand has denied the ‘very serious criminal allegations’ made against him

A memoir has resurfaced about an author who was pursued by Russell Brand before being ‘dumped’ for Kate Moss.

In her book The Wrong Knickers, which was published in 2014, Bryony Gordon claims Brand got her number from his PR team at the time before bombarding her with texts and calls. 

Her account has now resurfaced after Brand was accused of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse.

The allegations against Brand, which include controlling, abusive and predatory behaviour, are claimed to have taken place between 2006 and 2013.

Brand has denied the ‘very serious criminal allegations’ made against him in an expose by Channel 4’s Dispatches. 

In her book, Gordon described how she met Brand while interviewing him during his stint as a presenter on Channel 4’s Big Brother’s Big Mouth. 

She writes that he ‘spent the whole of our interview asking if he could kiss me, and every time I said no, it only caused him to ask me more’.

The bombshell claims against Brand came after he posted an astonishing video late on Friday night where he insisted any relationships he had ‘during his time of promiscuity’ were ‘consensual’.

In her book, Gordon says following numerous requests, she eventually agreed to go on a date with Brand a few weeks after she interviewed him. 

They went for lunch and to the cinema, before Brand suggested they return to his for some drinks. 

Gordon says he had a fridge ‘stocked with alcohol’ for her, despite the fact he is sober himself. 

She adds that after a few glasses of wine she went to bed with Brand. 

Prior to their brief relationship, Gordon says she wasn’t aware of his ‘reputation’ or ‘that there were, by his own admission, hundreds of other girls with a Russell Brand story’ because he wasn’t as well-known at the time. 

Gordon met with Brand a couple more times before his texts and calls to her stopped.

A few days after the communication stopped, she opened a newspaper to see a picture of Brand holding hands with Kate Moss. 

In the book, Gordon recalls telling her friends at a dinner party: ‘So, if you want to become a Hollywood star and start sleeping with supermodels…then sleep with me!’

The revelations against Brand are detailed in a Channel 4 Dispatches episode which aired at 9pm this evening, where one woman alleged that Brand assaulted her when he was 31 and she was 16 and still at school. 

The comedian, actor and internet personality told his 6.5 million subscribers that there are 'very, very serious criminal allegations' made against him which he 'absolutely refutes'

It is claimed the actor referred to her as ‘the child’ during an emotionally abusive and controlling relationship that lasted for about three months

She told Channel 4: ‘I think he was very skilful in the start of making his identity be, “I’m the womaniser. I’m a sex addict. I’m inappropriate but it’s all just a joke, it’s funny”.’

She added: ‘It’s a smokescreen for a lot more of his dark behaviour.’

Another woman alleged the comedian sexually assaulted her while she worked with him in Los Angeles and that he threatened her with legal action if she told anyone.

In the video he posted to YouTube and X, Brand said he vehemently denies what he called ‘very serious criminal allegations’ made against him. 

Russell Brand’s comments in full:  

Hello there you awakening wonders. Now this is not the usual type of video we make on this channel where we critique, attack and undermine the news in all its corruption because in this story I am the news.

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 extremely egregious and aggressive attacks, as well as some pretty stupid stuff, like my community festival should be stopped and I shouldn’t be able to attack mainstream media narratives on this channel.

But amidst this litany of astonishing rather baroque attacks are some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute. These allegations pertain to a time when I was 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 promiscuous.

During that time of promiscuity the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual. I was always transparent about that then, almost too transparent, and I am being transparent about it now as well.

And to see that transparency metastasized into something criminal that I absolutely deny makes me question is there another agenda at play. 

Particularly when we have seen coordinated media attacks before, like Joe Rogan where he dared to take a medicine the mainstream media didn’t approve of and we saw a spate of headlines of media outlets around the world using the same language.

I am aware that you guys in the comments have been for a while saying ‘watch out Russell, they’re coming for you,’ ‘you are getting too close to the truth’, ‘Russell Brand did not kill himself’.’

I know a year ago there was a spate of articles: Russell Brand is a conspiracy theorists; Russell Brand is right wing.

I am aware of newspapers making phone calls, sending letters to people I know. For ages and ages, it’s been clear to me or at least feels to be there’s a serious and consorted agenda to control these kinds of spaces and these kind of voices.

I need my voice along with your voice. I don’t mind them using my books and my stand up to talk about my promiscuous sexual conduct in the past. What I seriously refute are these very, very serious, criminal allegations.

Also its worth mentioning 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 be to me a coordinated attack.

Now, 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.

We are obviously going to look into this matter because it is very, very serious. 

In the meantime, I want you to stay close, stay awake but more importantly than any of that, if you can stay free.
