The women who accused Russell Brand of rape, s****l a*sault and emotional abuse have spoken out in a television special about the alleged crimes.
In Channel 4 Dispatches’ ‘Russell Brand: In Plain Sight’, which aired on Saturday evening, five women – all of whom chose to remain anonymous – spoke candidly about the alleged abuse they suffered with the comedian.
“He grabs my underwear and pulls them to the side,” one accuser claimed. “I tell him to get off me and he won’t make it. Like holding myself against a wall, pushing himself into me.
Another woman claimed that Brand, 48, “grabbed me and put me on the bed. I was fully dressed and he was naked at this point. And he held me down and he was just aggressively trying to, you know, fuck me.
A third victim claimed the “Take Him to the Greek” star “forced his penis” down her throat to the point she “couldn’t breathe.”
“He was just choking me,” she claimed. “I was crying and he said, ‘Oh, I just wanted to see your mascara run anyway.'”
The inquest then showed a clip from one of Brand’s comedy shows in 2006, in which he joked about seeing a woman’s mascara run “a little bit” during “blowjobs”.
One of the women claimed she had “never, ever” spoken publicly about the incident before because the actor seemed “untouchable.”
One of the alleged rapes took place at Brand’s Los Angeles home, nearly five months after he and Katy Perry finalized their divorce.

A day before the film aired and the Sunday Times published an expose on the alleged incidents, Brand took to his Instagram to deny the claims.
“I have received two extremely disturbing letters, a letter and an email, one from a mainstream television media outlet, the other from a newspaper, listing a litany of blatant and aggressive attacks,” he said in a video message on Instagram on Friday.
“Amid this litany of astonishing, somewhat baroque attacks, are very serious allegations that I absolutely refute.”
The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star also said that although he had a “promiscuous” past, all of his relationships “were absolutely always consensual.”
Page Six reached out to Brand’s representatives but did not immediately receive a response.
“Russell Brand: In Plain Sight” is now available to stream on Channel 4.
