Russell Brand who stands accused of raping and sexually assaulting four women has denied all of the accusations. But in new interviews, one of the victims has now revealed how she has long known he was a total monster despite his image rebrand.
“He’s saying one thing and I know the demon underneath it,” she said told UK’s Sunday Times.
The unidentified woman known only as Nadia is among the women who’ve accused Brand of rape. Some of the allegations date back as clearly as 2013 when Brand would’ve been coming up initially in Hollywood. Others date back as clearly as 2006 allegedly spanning much of Brand’s career.
Reading beyond this point might be triggering for some.
In one instance, the two reportedly met following a party in 2012 that later led to the pair meeting up at Brand’s Hollywood home. While the two did initially have consensual sex, it was actually according to the woman the second encounter that turned allegedly dangerous.
Russell Brand allegedly invited the woman over a second time after having exchanged numerous texts. But in her words after seeing him again on 1 July 2012.
“He pushed me up against the wall. I’m like, ‘What are you doing?’ And he’s like ‘I have a friend here and I, I want you to come in the bedroom,’” she alleges. “I’m like, ‘No, that’s not happening, we’re not doing that.’”
From there, and this has to be the scariest part, Brand allegedly followed her through a hallway area and later raped her without a condom.
