Russell Brand accuser claims to know the demon underneath' his new public image

02:15 18.09.2023 - New York Post, David Propper

The woman who claims Russell Brand raped her against the wall of his Los Angeles home in 2012 said she knows "the demon underneath" his wellness persona as she revealed more details of their sordid relationship on Sunday.

The unidentified woman, who goes by the pseudonym Nadia, scoffed at Brand's online presence as a wellness influencer who has gained a massive following online in recent years.

"He's saying one thing and I know the demon underneath it," she told the UK's Sunday Times, which broke the story along with UK's Channel 4 Dispatches.

"He wants to help with meditation, he's all in this wellness world ?? It just makes me so mad that he has a platform for this."

The woman decided to go public after she learned that a story about various accusations against him was being written.

"What do I want out of this?" she added. "Just for him to stop ?? I'm just sick seeing men get away with this."

Brand, 48, is accused of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse by four women between 2006 and 2013 during the peak of his career.

The "Get Him to the Greek" actor has strenuously denied the claims and insisted that all the relationships were consensual.

Nadia claims she met the comedian at an event in Los Angeles and was raped by the star months later after she turned down his offer to have a threesome. She also wrote Brand a letter following the alleged attack in hopes of regaining "some of her power in the process," the newspaper reported.

The woman, who was in her 30s at the time, said she introduced herself to Brand, then 37, during an after party for a "trial run" for his new show "Brand X."

He leaned in and kissed her right away, she claims and the two began exchanging texts in May 2012 following the party.

The next month, she said the pair had consensual sex at Brand's Hollywood house.

"I did go around and we did have sex. He's like, 'Do you want to use a condom or not use a condom?' and I'm like 'No, absolutely we're using a condom,'" she recalled to the Sunday Times. "And he did respect my wishes."

Several days later, Brand suggested in a text she "bring a friend" and that he also said, "I feel like I require a little chaos," Nadia claimed.

She saw Brand again on July 1, 2012, after he reached out to her late and pleaded with her to come over.

When she entered his unlocked door, he allegedly emerged from his bedroom naked and began kissing her, which she called "kind of fun" before things took a turn.

"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 reportedly alleged. "I'm like, 'No, that's not happening, we're not doing that.'"

She then tried to get away and move to another wall, but Brand followed her and allegedly raped her without a condom, the Sunday Times reported.

After wondering how she was "going to get out of here alive," she eventually managed to flee to her car.

"I'm sorry," Brand allegedly messaged her at 3:29 a.m., the news outlet reported. "That was crazy and selfish. I hope you can forgive me, I know that you're a lovely person. X."

He also tried calling her, but she didn't pick up, with multiple sources confirming the phone number to the Sunday Times. Nadia later replied, telling Brand he needed help while he messaged her back he was sorry and he would make it up to her, according to the news outlet.

The alleged victim was treated at a rape crisis center the same day, according to medical records cited by the newspaper.

Later that year, Nadia sent Brand a letter originally meant to stay between her and her therapist.

"Do you know what you put me through? My body through? My emotions and body are turned upside down . . . You scared the shit out of me on July 1st, I thought in any situation I would be strong enough to fight someone oh," part of the letter reported on by the Sunday Times read.

"But when it's someone you know, you don't expect to be put in that position. You completely broke me down."

His wellness image masks the 'demon' underneath, reveals woman who claims Brand raped her

'Nadia': It just makes me so mad that he has a platform.

A woman who claims she was raped by Russell Brand says he is a demon behind his public persona.

Brand, 48, is accused of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse following an expose by the Sunday Times and Dispatches, Channel 4's investigative programme.

The comedian and presenter strongly denies the allegations, saying all his relationships have been consensual.

In recent years, Brand has stepped away from mainstream television and Hollywood films and instead produces internet videos advising on addiction recovery and wellness to millions of his followers.

An alleged victim, known only as Nadia, claims she was raped at Brand's home in Los Angeles in 2012.

'Friend in the bedroom'

She claims his wellness image masks the demon underneath.

In an interview with the Times, Nadia says: "He's saying one thing and I know the demon underneath it . . .

"He wants to help with meditation, he's all in this wellness world . . . It just makes me so mad that he has a platform for that."

"What do I want out of this? Just for him to stop . . . ..... 

Nadia is reported as claiming that when she declined his suggestion of joining a "friend in the bedroom" he forced himself upon her despite her repeatedly saying: Get off.

In a text message, The Sunday Times claims it has authenticated, the woman, who was in her 30s, told him: "When a girl say[s] NO it means no." Brand apparently replied: "I'm very sorry".

She told Dispatches that she is "completely disgusted" by the way she claims he treated her.

Another woman, named only as Phoebe and in her 20s, said she had a brief consensual relationship with him in 2013.

The pair, who apparently met at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, had begun working on projects together.

'His eyes were black like the devil'

When alone at his West Hollywood home she claims that he "grabbed me and got me on the bed", adding how she saw "something come over his eyes, I swear to God, like, black, his eyes had no more colour, they were black like the devil".

She claimed he sexually assaulted her, before he relented but then became "super angry".

Nadia says she was taken by a friend to UCLA Santa Monica Medical Centre's Rape Treatment Center (RTC) that same day.

Medical notes, seen by the Sunday Times, state that a named officer from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) was alerted.

It is said she declined to make a police report but provided her underwear and other samples as evidence, which were frozen.

She went on to receive therapy sessions at the centre for the next five months.

In a YouTube video on Friday night, Brand described the claims as "a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks". He said he "absolutely refutes" the these very, very serious criminal allegations."

His wellness image masks the 'demon' underneath, reveals woman who claims Brand raped her

Russell Brand, the well-known comedian and presenter, is facing multiple accusations of rape, sexual assault, and emotional abuse. The allegations were brought to light by an expose conducted by the Sunday Times and Channel 4's Dispatches. Brand, who has gained a massive following online in recent years through his wellness and addiction recovery videos, vehemently denies all the claims, stating that all his relationships have been consensual.

One of the alleged victims, referred to as Nadia, has come forward to share her harrowing experience. Nadia describes Brand as a demon who hides behind his public persona. She claims that he raped her at his Los Angeles home in 2012. In an interview with the Times, Nadia expresses her frustration with Brand's online presence, where he promotes meditation and wellness. She states, "He's saying one thing, and I know the demon underneath it. ..... 

According to Nadia, she first met Brand at an event in Los Angeles and later engaged in consensual sex with him at his Hollywood house. However, their relationship took a dark turn when Brand allegedly forced himself upon her after she declined his suggestion of joining a "friend in the bedroom." Nadia claims she repeatedly told him to stop, but he ignored her pleas. In a text message, authenticated by the Sunday Times, Nadia told Brand, "When a girl says 'NO,' it means no." In response, Brand apologized, saying, "I'm very sorry."

Another woman, identified as Phoebe, also shared her experience with Brand. Phoebe, in her 20s, had a brief consensual relationship with Brand in 2013 after meeting at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. However, during a private moment at his West Hollywood home, Phoebe alleges that Brand sexually assaulted her. She describes a disturbing transformation in his eyes, saying they turned black like the devil. Eventually, Brand relented, but his anger intensified.

Nadia sought help from UCLA Santa Monica Medical Centre's Rape Treatment Center (RTC) on the same day of the alleged assault. Medical records obtained by the Sunday Times confirm her visit to the center. Although she did not file a police report, she provided her underwear and other samples as evidence, which were preserved. Nadia received therapy sessions at the center for the following five months.

In response to the allegations, Brand released a YouTube video, categorizing them as "extremely egregious and aggressive attacks." He firmly refutes the accusations, emphasizing their serious nature. The LAPD was reportedly alerted about the incident involving Nadia, although she chose not to make an official report.

As these allegations against Russell Brand continue to unfold, the public awaits further developments and potential legal actions. The voices of the alleged victims shed light on the dark side of a well-known celebrity, exposing the disparity between Brand's public image and his private behavior.

Russell Brand's alleged victim says BBC car brought her to actor's home as a teen: report

The woman who accused Russell Brand of grooming and sexually assaulting her when she was 16 years old claims she was picked up at school and brought to the actor's home for sex acts in a car paid for by the BBC.

The latest bombshell from the Sunday Times, which broke the allegations against Brand with the Times of London and Channel 4 Dispatches, comes as the BBC announced it's "urgently looking into issues" tied to when the under-fire British comedian worked for the network.

The star's alleged victim told the news outlet she recalls as a teen going to and from Brand's north London home via the chauffer-driven car was paid for by the corporation.

The woman, who used the pseudonym Alice, said she first rode in the BBC car when it was initially booked to take Brand to his radio show.

"But he had a friend taking him instead so I should use that car," she said, adding the BBC driver took her from Brand's house to her grandma's house one day.

"And then when the car picked me up from school, it was the same car... I knew that that was a BBC car," she told the Sunday Times.

Alice is one of four women accusing Brand of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse.

Brand has vigorously denied the allegations.

Alice claims she was 16 when the then-31-year-old star called her "the child" and assaulted her during an "emotionally abusive and controlling" three-month relationship, according to the initial report.

She was older than the legal age of consent in the UK at the time.

Alice also accused Brand of once making her choke when he "forced his penis down her throat" and she allegedly punched him in the stomach to get him to stop.

Brand, 48, worked for BBC radio programs between 2006 and 2008 and the shocking allegations included in the Sunday Times report spanned from 2006 to 2013.

"The documentary and associated reports contained serious allegations, spanning a number of years. Russell Brand worked on BBC radio programs between 2006 and 2008 and we are urgently looking into the issues raised," a BBC spokesperson said.

Network staff warned bosses about Brand's poor work behavior at least three times, including allegations he exposed himself to a female worker and had sex with guests on his radio shows, sources told the news outlet.

Brand resigned from the BBC in 2008 after he and Jonathan Ross, a guest on Brand's show, left an offensive voicemail for the Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs after he failed to appear for an interview, including Ross reportedly saying that Brand slept with Sachs' granddaughter.
