Russell Brand refutes allegations of sexual assault on a film set, expressing compassion for his accuser’s potential inaccuracies in recalling the events.

In a civil lawsuit filed in November, the woman made allegations against the actor and comedian, claiming that he exposed himself and assaulted her during the filming of Arthur in 2010.

However, Russell Brand’s legal team asserts that the lawsuit is based on an unfounded allegation that he was visibly intoxicated during the incident. They emphasize that while brands character in the film portrays a drunk persona, in reality, he was sober throughout the filming process.

Russell Brand Responds to Lawsuit, Denying Accusations and Highlighting Faulty Recollection In a legal response filed on Tuesday, Russel Brand’s legal team raised concerns about the woman’s ability to distinguish between acting and reality.

The woman, whose identity remains undisclosed, filed a lawsuit with the New York State Supreme Court, alleging that Brand had appeared intoxicated, emitted an alcohol odor, and carried a bottle of vodka while on set. According to her account, Brand exposed himself in front of the cast and crew.

Claimed Assault Incident and Russel Brand’s Denial

The woman further claimed that later that day, Russel Brand followed her into the bathroom and assaulted her while a member of the production crew stood guard outside the door. Brand, in his response, denied these allegations, stating that he did not recognize her name or photo and had no recollection of any interactions with her.

Brand’s legal team emphasized that his role as Arthur Bach in the 2010 remake of the comedy film “Arthur” required him to act drunk, but he remained sober throughout the production, abstaining from alcohol and drugs. They clarified that the open alcohol bottle mentioned was a prop for the film.

Faulty Memory and Timing of Allegations

Highlighting the woman’s faulty memory of events that allegedly occurred more than 13 years ago, Brand’s legal statement argued that her delayed complaint weakened her claims.

During the filming, Russel Brand’s lawyers asserted that he had refrained from drugs and alcohol for approximately eight years. In addition to this lawsuit, Brand is currently facing multiple accusations of rape, sexual assaults, and emotional abuse spanning from 2006 to 2013. The Metropolitan Police in London confirmed in December that they had questioned russel Brand regarding nine alleged offenses, with investigations ongoing.

The law suit also includes film studio Warner Bros Pictures and other companies involved in the production as defendants .Brand has previously stated that all his relationships have been consensual.
