The YouTube announced today that blocked the internet Russell Brand channel so he can’t make money from it after the categories that were formulated against him for a series of sexual assaults.

The 48-year-old British former presenter and actor, who is now mainly active on social networking sites, has denied the allegations, saying all his relationships were “consensual” and alleging a “coordinated attack” against him.

Police in London yesterday announced they had received a complaint against Russell Brand for alleged sexual assault 20 years ago, adding to revelations made by four other women over the weekend.

Referring to the case revealed by the Sunday Times and Channel 4, London police said they were informed on Sunday of a sexual assault allegedly committed by Brad in 2003 in Soho. Officers “are in contact with the woman” who made the complaint, a Scotland Yard spokesman said. “We continue to encourage anyone who believes they have been sexually assaulted, however long ago, to contact us,” he added.

In the joint investigation by The Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4, four women accused the actor of rape or sexual assault between 2006-13. At the time Brad was at the height of his career as a presenter on BBC radio and Channel 4 and as an actor in Hollywood.

His television and film career, first in Britain and then in the US, was marked by his addiction to alcohol and heroin, his brief marriage to singer Katy Perry and his tendency to flaunt his achievements. He has recently ramped up his anti-vaccine, anti-major media conspiracy posts on his YouTube channel (6 million subscribers) and on his Platform X account (11 million followers).

The case reached Downing Street, with the Prime Minister’s spokesman Rishi Sunak speaking of “very serious and disturbing allegations”.

Russell Brand’s media outlet announced on Sunday that it will conduct an internal investigation into the allegations made against him.

YouTube, which is owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc, said it had suspended monetization of Brad’s channel after it “violated” the creator’s “policy responsibility”.

“If a channel creator’s off-platform behavior harms users, employees, or the entire system, we take steps to protect the community,” a YouTube spokesperson said.

After the accusations against Brad came to light, any of his scheduled appearances were cancelled.
