***Warning: this article mentions sexual assault and rape***
Russell Brand previously bragged about kissing Meghan Markle before she met Prince Harry.
Brand is currently facing allegations from four different women following an investigation by The Times, The Sunday Times, and Channel 4's Dispatches. The investigation has seen the women claim that Brand raped and sexually assaulted them during a period between 2006 and 2013.
The comedian and YouTuber often spoke openly about his sex addiction in his comedy, with one of his accusers claiming that this was a 'smokescreen' for his behaviour.
In 2010, Brand starred in the movie Get Him to the Greek, about a music industry worker who has to get a hellraising rock star - played by Brand - to a venue in time for a big concert.
At the time, Brand said: "She was in a film that I was in — I had done a film, Get Him to the Greek, it was called, a bloody good film — Meghan Markle, didn’t know at the time because she wasn’t married to a royal person, so I wasn’t paying attention.
"Well I think in it, I don’t remember the film that much… but I think I planted one on her, I think, in the scene.
"But that was scripted in the scene. I only know this because I think I saw a clip of it somewhere."
An investigation by The Times, The Sunday Times, and Channel 4's Dispatches saw evidence from four women who alleged that Brand raped and sexually assaulted them.
Among them was Alice, not her real name, who had met Brand in 2006, four years before Get Him to the Greek. Alice, who was just 16-years-old at the time, alleged that Brand had sent a car to her school to take her out of lessons.
She told the investigation that a taxi driver had recognised the location and pleaded with her not to go in, saying he had a daughter her age. She claimed that he had even offered to take her home without charge, but she had refused saying she was fine.
Alice had a relationship with Brand, who was 30 years old at the time, for around three months.
She claimed that' during that time, Brand had referred to her as 'the child', and made her read Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita, which is about a man who is sexually attracted to young girls.
Alice also alleged that he had sexually assaulted her orally and that she had to punch him in the stomach to make him stop.
Russell Brand has denied the allegations in a video on his YouTube channel, calling the investigation a 'co-ordinated attack'.
UNILAD has reached out to representatives of Russell Brand for comment.
