New Russell Brand Investigation launched


After London’s Metropolitan Police launched an investigation into Russell Brand last week, the Thames Valley Police is also looking into the matter, it has emerged.

A woman contacted the Thames Valley Police two weeks ago with “new information” in relation to reports of “harassment and stalking,” according to the BBC.

The Metropolitan Police had said previously that it had received a “number of allegations of sexual offences.”

Brand, a comedian and actor who has appeared in films including “Rock of Ages” alongside Tom Cruise, was the subject of a lengthy joint investigation by The Times of London, The Sunday Times and Channel 4 documentary strand “Dispatches” which alleged that Brand raped or sexually assaulted four women at the height of his fame.

Brand has strongly denied the allegations.
