Russell Brand, the well-known comedian-actor, is now under investigation by UK police after multiple women publicly accused him of sexual abuse from years ago.

Although London’s Metropolitan Police did not explicitly name Brand in their statement on Monday, it is clear that he is the focus of this new probe. The police stated, “Following an investigation by Channel 4’s Dispatches and The Sunday Times, the Met has received a number of allegations of sexual offences in London.”

The police also mentioned that they have received allegations of sexual offences committed in other parts of the country, which they will investigate as well.

Prior to the announcement, the Metropolitan Police had received a report of a sexual assault that allegedly occurred in Soho, London in 2003. Many believed this incident was connected to Brand. However, it’s important to note that Brand has not been arrested for anything related to these allegations at this time.

Brand has strongly and consistently denied all the claims against him so far. It remains to be seen whether these investigations will lead to any charges.
