In recent developments, British comedian Russell Brand has come under scrutiny for alleged offensive behavior during the peak of his career from 2006 to 2013. These accusations have added up to the series of complaints against Brand for sexual harassment. But Brand's ex-wife and pop star, Katy Perry, has chosen to remain silent on the matter.

The Hot and Cold singer seems unperturbed by her ex facing allegations of sexual assault. Despite their past marriage, Perry has refrained from commenting on Brand in recent years. On the other hand, the British police have initiated two separate investigations to embolden others to raise their voice and provide substantial evidence. Simultaneously, the BBC, where Brand worked as a radio show host from 2006 to 2008, and Channel 4, where some of the other alleged incidents took place, have initiated a follow-up investigation into his behavior.



The additional criminal charges are yet to be revealed by the investigators. However, an article published by The Times on September 16, 2023, shed light on these accusations. One woman, identified as "Alice," claimed that Russell sexually and emotionally abused her during their 2006 relationship when she was 16 and he was 31. Another accuser alleged the actor exposed himself and forced her into doing non-consensual sexual deeds with her during the shooting of a romantic comedy film. The legal reports state that Brand, under the strong influence of alcohol, exposed himself to the actress on a set filled with cast and crew, per USA Today. Furthermore, the lawsuit alleges that Brand her into a bathroom and forced her to indulge in a non-consensual sexual act.

This marks the first legal case filed against the comedian, despite previous disturbing allegations and claims made on social media. The actress claims to have suffered extreme emotional distress and insult as a repercussion of the assault, leading to economic losses due to her work on the film being cut short following the incident. She confessed her fears of being blacklisted from the industry as a consequence.

This lawsuit was filed under New York's Adult Survivors Act, helping accusers to sue for sexual abuse within a one-year window, even if the statutes of limitations have expired. As per Mirror, the alleged victim stated, "I was working on the set of the movie Arthur when the lead actor Russell Brand sexually assaulted me." 



Per reports published by The Guardian, the Thames Police Station stated, "Thames Valley police in the past two weeks received new information in relation to the harassment and stalking allegations dating back to 2018." Perry, who was married to Brand between 2010 and 2012, has chosen to remain tight-lipped on the issue even though their relationship's period coincided with the time when some of the alleged assaults occurred. Despite the ongoing controversy surrounding Brand, the Firework hitmaker appears to have moved on from her past marriage and cherishes her time with her family.
