The British actor and presenter Russell Brand has been accused by four women of rape, sexual assault, and emotional abuse, according to an investigation carried out by the newspapers The Times and The Sunday Times and Channel 4 television.

The four women claimed to have suffered sexual assault by Brand between 2006 and 2013, at the height of his fame as a presenter in the United Kingdom and an actor in Hollywood, while other women said they had suffered from his “controlling, abusive and predatory” behavior.

In a video that Brand had posted on his social networks before the accusations came to light, he denied having committed the “serious accusations” that the media participating in the investigation had pointed out to him in separate letters, without specifying to whom he referred.   

Brand has denied the allegations and said his relationships have been "always consensual".

During the seven years covered by the allegations, Brand had various high-profile jobs at different times, including at BBC Radio 2 and Channel 4, and as an actor in Hollywood films. - EFE News Agency
