Another woman accuses Russell Brand of sexual assault as comedian finally breaks silence on allegations

LONDON, ENGLAND: Another woman has come forward to accuse comedian Russell Brand, alleging that he assaulted her while they were in a limo, tore holes in her tights, and held off on calling a taxi until she "engaged in a sex act with him."

She is the eighth woman to have accused the comedian of a number of offenses, including rape, sexual assault, and emotional abuse.

The women, who identified herself as 'Sarah', claimed the comedian made her feel "vulnerable and intimidated" after he reportedly held her back from getting a taxi until she engaged in a sex act.

Brand has vehemently rejected all the allegations, insisting that all of the encounters were consensual.

The most recent charge was leveled only hours before the comedian broke his silence for the first time since the claims surfaced on September 16, claiming that he experienced an "extraordinary and distressing week," per Daily Mail.

Sarah first met comedian Russell Brand on a flight

Sarah told Sky News that she accepted Brand's invitation to go out for breakfast and a walk because she thought he seemed "friendly and charming" when they first met on a flight.

However, the woman stated that Brand's behavior changed once they were in the car. "He wasn't friendly and charming in the limo. He was aggressive and I felt very vulnerable and intimated. He just jumped on me in the limo," she alleged.

Sarah claimed Brand "ripped" holes in her tights. The limo driver had turned around when she initially rejected his purported approaches.

"The limo driver was turning around a few times because I was saying no, but he ripped a hole - more than one hole - in the tights that I was wearing," she said to the broadcaster.

Sarah, however, said they then drove to Brand's house where they had consensual sex. "I mean, it was consensual. I didn't say no," she said, "but I feel like there's a fine line between being forced and being coerced, you know, like being in a situation where the only way out is just to get it over and done with and leave."

Sarah continued by saying that Brand afterward held off on getting her a taxi until she engaged in oral sex with him.

Sarah allegedly told the news outlet: "I wanted to leave and I said, 'I need to get a taxi'. And he said, 'I'm not going to get you a taxi until you do this', which was a sex act."

Sarah's allegations were made public hours after Brand posted on social media for the first time in a week.

Russell Brand denies sexual assault allegations in his latest video

The actor-comedian posted on social media on September 22 for the first time since the Channel 4 Dispatches, The Times and Sunday Times probes broke last weekend.

Brand, who has refuted all accusations, missed his weekly appearances on Rumble and YouTube but opted for Instagram instead to address his followers.

In the clip, he said: "Hello there you awakening wonders, obviously it's been an extraordinary and distressing week and I thank you very much for your support and for questioning the information that you have been presented with."

"By now, you're probably aware that the British government has asked big tech platforms to censor our online content and that some online platforms have complied with that request."

"What you may not know is that this happens in the context of the online safety bill which is a piece of UK legislation that grants sweeping surveillance and censorship powers and it's a law that's already been passed."

Brand further added: "I also don't imagine that you've heard of the trusted news initiative and now, as often is the case when a word like trusted is used as part of an acronym to describe an unelected body, trust is the last thing you should be offering."

"The trusted news initiative is a collaboration between big tech and legacy media organizations to target, patrol, choke and shut down independent media organizations, like this one."

It comes after former colleague and comedian Cole Parker claimed Brand had a reputation for getting "angry or a bit nasty" when his bids on a woman were turned down.

Models were frequently cautioned by their representatives about the comedian, according to Parker, who collaborated with Brand between 2000 and 2002.

Parker further expressed surprise that information was not made public sooner on BBC's Newsnight.

"A lot of the modeling agents would sit down and tell their models, tell their stable, warn them about him," claimed Brand's former colleague.
