There is an accusation that Russell Brand sexually assaulted someone who had a small part in the movie Arthur back in 2010. The alleged victim has filed a lawsuit against the English actor in New York.
A woman who goes by the name of "Jane Doe" filed a lawsuit in the New York Supreme Court six weeks after Brand was accused by four women of sexual assault in a Channel 4 documentary and reports from The Times and Sunday Times newspapers.
Multiple individuals have accused Russell Brand of sexual misconduct. One of the accusers claimed that Brand sexually assaulted her while they were in a relationship and she was 16 years old. Another woman accused Brand of raping her in Los Angeles back in 2012. Despite these allegations, Brand has vehemently denied any wrongdoing.
According to Reuters, the British authorities are looking into accusations made against Brand, but this is the initial legal action taken against him.
The most recent lady who made a claim against Brand is requesting to take legal action without revealing her identity as she is still employed in the entertainment sector and worries about facing retaliation.
As per the affidavit submitted in the lawsuit by Doe, Brand allegedly seemed drunk, emitted an odour of alcohol, and had a container of vodka with him while on the set before carrying out the attack.
According to the legal documents, Brand supposedly revealed his genitalia to the victim "in front of the entire cast and crew."
According to the sworn statement, the incident of sexual assault occurred on the same day when I was using the restroom. Mr. Brand followed me inside and committed the assault, while one of the crew members stood outside, watching the door.
The blog post goes on to say that the abuse had a lasting impact on the individual, causing them to experience strong feelings of humiliation, guilt, and unease. The person is worried that if their name is revealed in connection to the abuse, these negative emotions will only intensify.

. He rejected all accusations made against him that surfaced earlier this year and maintained that he has not done anything wrong.
As this matter concerns a well-known person, I am worried that it will attract a large audience, intensifying my emotions of humiliation, disgrace, and dread, resulting in permanent damage to my state of mind.
The producer Warner Bros Pictures was included as a person sued in the lawsuit, with other firms who played a part in creating the film. They were blamed for carelessness and helping Brand by allowing his conduct on the film's set.
The legal action was supposedly initiated based on the Adult Survivors Act of the state. This law enables purported victims to file a lawsuit for past sexual abuse, even if the legal time limits have expired, but only within a year.
The brand is no longer present in widely-viewed publications, but has a significant online fanbase due to its conspiracy theory content and rebellious viewpoints.
After the initial accusations against Brand, YouTube declared that he wouldn't be able to earn revenue from his 6.6 million subscribers anymore. He then shifted his live videos to the Rumble platform.
The Independent has attempted to contact Mr. Brand's representatives to request a statement.
