Russell Brand accused of sexual assault on movie set in new lawsuit

Russell Brand allegedly sexually assaulted an extra on the 2010 set of the movie Arthur, according to a new lawsuit filed against the British star in New York.

The lawsuit, filed by a woman only referred to as “Jane Doe”, comes six weeks after Brand was accused by four women of sexual assault in a Channel 4 documentary and The Times and Sunday Times newspapers.

The accusers include one who alleged she was sexually assaulted during a relationship with Brand when she was 16. Another of the women alleges that Brand raped her in Los Angeles in 2012. He has strongly denied all the allegations.

The latest woman to make an accusation against Brand wants the court to allow her to sue anonymously as she still works in the entertainment industry and says she fears reprisals, according to Insider.

An affidavit filed in the case by Doe claims that Brand “appeared intoxicated, smelled of alcohol, and was carrying a bottle of vodka on set” before the assault.

The court papers also allege that Brand exposed his penis to the victim “in full view of the cast and crew.”

“The sexual assault happened later that same day when I was in the bathroom,” the affidavit alleges. “Mr Brand entered after me and assaulted me, as a member of the production crew guarded the door from outside.”
