Russell Brand was allegedly so “concerned” about the innocence of the 16-year-old he is accused of sexually assaulting that he became “instantly aroused” when he learned she was a virgin, a disturbing new report reveals.
The woman, identified only as “Alice” in an explosive joint investigation published Saturday by the Times of London and Channel 4 Dispatches, claims the actor and comedian, then 31, told her to read Vladamir’s controversial “Lolita.” Nabokov. for its middle-aged protagonist obsessed with a 12-year-old girl and sexually assaulted during their three-month relationship in 2006.
Alice said she met Brand when he approached her in Leicester Square while she was shopping nearby, recognizing him from his stand-up act and his work with the BBC.
“He took my shopping bags, which was quite captivating, and proceeded to go through my purchases and critique them, and then he pulled out a dress and said, ‘You’re going to wear this on our date this week.’ ”He told the media.
After Brand, now 48, invited Alice to dinner, her mother made him text her age (which is above the age of consent in the UK) in the hope that it would discouraged him, but it didn’t.
“I remember I was wearing a red dress and big platform shoes, I had my hair done and I was wearing makeup,” Alice said.
“But she didn’t look like a woman in any way. “I was a girl who had dressed up for dinner.”
“Amid this litany of astonishing and quite baroque attacks, there are some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute,” Brand said in a video before the damning accusations became public. Russell/Twitter Brand
Brand asked her to confirm her age on their first date.
“I don’t give a damn if you’re 12 years old… I need to know where I stand legally,” he allegedly told her, according to the report.
Brand’s charm and attention made Alice feel “giddy” and “special,” she recalled.
When the teenager first told Brand that she was a virgin, he became instantly aroused and became “concerned” about her innocence, he told the media.
“He was like, ‘Oh my God, my baby, my baby,’ and he picked me up and cradled me in his arms like a child and stroked my hair,” she said. “He tells me, ‘You’re like my little doll.'”

Brand referred to her as “the girl” and gave her “scripts” to pass along to her parents when he wanted to see her, even ordering her to save her number in his phone under the name “Carly,” according to the exposé.
Although Alice was of legal age in the UK, she and a relative who backed her claims in the Sunday Times equated her actions with “grooming.”
“Russell adopted the demeanor of a barber, looking back, but I didn’t even know what that was at the time, or what it looked like,” she told the outlet.
She added that Brand was controlling and once ran her a bath and told her to stay there for about an hour while he went out. She also claimed that he once took off the condom during sex without her knowing.
Alice also alleged that Brand sexually assaulted her toward the end of their relationship.
“I was sitting on the bed, against the headboard, and he forced his penis down my throat and I couldn’t breathe,” she said, according to the report.
“I was just suffocating and couldn’t breathe, and I was pushing him and he wasn’t backing away at all.”
“I ended up having to punch him really hard in the stomach to get him out,” he continued. She “was crying and he said, ‘Oh, anyway, I just wanted to see your mascara run.’
“So I knew in that moment that he didn’t care about hurting me physically or emotionally… It shouldn’t be necessary to hit someone and wind them up to get them off of you. “It shouldn’t be a physical fight.”
Alice said Brand then opened her mouth so he could drool.
“My limbs got trapped underneath him and I thought, ‘Why are you doing this?’ she said. “There can’t even be any sexual gratification in this.” And then she closed my mouth and made me swallow it, so I choked and cried.”
Alice’s relationship with Brand ended when he invited her over only to find another woman in his bed when she arrived.
“I got really angry and said, ‘Why would you do this to me? This is very humiliating,’” she recalled.
Alice, now 30, is one of four women who told the Sunday Times that Brand sexually assaulted them between 2006 and 2013, during the height of his fame.

She revealed that she came forward after realizing she had been too young to consent to a relationship with an adult and feels the law should be changed to raise the age of consent to 18.
“My mother still feels like she failed me in some way by allowing this to happen, but she had no recourse,” he said. “It should not be legal for a 16-year-old girl to have a relationship with a man in his 30s. “There should be something to protect children.”
Before the scandal broke, Brand posted a video on YouTube and X denying the allegations.
“I have received two extremely disturbing letters, or a letter and an email, one from a major television outlet and one from a newspaper, listing a litany of egregious and aggressive attacks,” he said.
“Amidst this litany of surprising and rather baroque attacks, there are some very serious accusations that I absolutely refute.”
The actor said the allegations stem from a time when he was “very, very promiscuous,” which he said he wrote about “extensively in my books.”
“Now, during that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely and always consensual,” he said.
