  • Russell Brand received a standing ovation after denying sexual misconduct allegations, but his ex-wife Katy Perry’s past comments about him now seem significant.
  • The Times released a report accusing Russell of rape, sexual assault, and abuse, with one alleged victim claiming to be 16 at the time.
  • Russell vigorously denies the allegations, citing consensual past encounters and questioning whether there is another agenda at play.

Russell Brand recently got a standing ovation following a stand-up performance, only hours after sexual misconduct allegations against the actor became public. But won’t person who likely isn’t supporting him is his ex-wife Katy Perry, whose past comments seemed to imply that Russell is not all what he seems.

Russell, 48, graced the stage at London’s Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre on Saturday, September 16, where he performed his routine as part of his ongoing Bipolarisation show.

As captured in video footage acquired by the Daily Mail, the actor received an enthusiastic round of applause upon his entrance. In the video, numerous audience members stood up and applauded vigorously, some even leaving their seats. It seemed that he received another standing ovation as the performance concluded.

However, only a few hours prior, The Times released a report alleging that four women had made allegations against the comedian, accusing him of rape, sexual assault, and abuse. As per the British newspaper’s report, one of these women claimed to have been only 16 years old at the time of her alleged encounter with Russell.

Russell has since responded to the allegations in order to vigorously deny them. He addressed them in a video posted to his social media counts on Friday, September 15.

“I’ve received two extremely disturbing letters, or a letter and an email, one from a mainstream media TV company [and] one from a newspaper, listing a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks,” the UK native said.

“As well as some pretty stupid stuff, like my community festival should be stopped, that 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,” he continued.

Russell further claimed that any sexual encounters he’s had in the past have been consensual, and slammed the media for promoting what he calls a false narrative.

“As I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous. Now during that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely, always consensual,” Russell continued. “I was always transparent about that then — almost too transparent. And I’m being transparent about it now as well. And to see that transparency metastasized into something criminal that I absolutely deny makes me question [if] there is another agenda at play?”

Katy Perry Warned Fans About “The Real Turt” About Russell Brand

Russell has been married to Lauren Gallacher, with whom he shares two daughters, since 2017. Prior to that, he was wed to pop star Katy Perry from 2010 to 2012. While the singer hasn’t addressed the recent accusations against her ex, Katy’s past words about Russell are resurfacing with some fans believing it foreshadowed the current situation.

In a 2013 interview with Vogue, Katy claimed Russell was “controlling” and “really hurtful” during their short union, which he ended via text on New Year’s Even in 2011. Katy said she initially blamed herself for the break-up, that is until she says she learned the “real truth” about her ex.

“At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, ‘I can’t handle the equalness.’ He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting,” she explained.

“I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like, ‘This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me.’ So I have moved on from that,’” Katy continued.

It’s not clear what Katy meant by “the truth” at the time, but theories are running wild among fans given the new allegations against Russell.
