Comedian London Hughes has claimed she was warned upon signing with Russell Brand’s agent not to have sex with him ‘under any circumstances’.
Hughes claimed he was known for sleeping with women then having them fired or dropped from the agency afterwards, claiming they now ‘made him feel sick’.
‘But my first day at the agency I was told unprovoked that I shouldn’t sleep with him under any circumstances as he likes to pursue women, have sex with them.’
She added: ‘But as soon as he had sex with them, they’d make him feel sick and he didn’t want to be around them anymore, so he would have them fired or dropped from the agency… it had happened several times in the past.’
Brand has been accused by multiple women of abusive and predatory behaviour, including rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse, between 2006 and 2013. The allegations were exposed in a joint investigation between The Sunday Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches.
Hughes, who was 22 years old at the time, said she ‘did what I was told’ and ‘completely avoided’ Brand.
She added: ‘This is not some cheeky misunderstood man. I am not shocked by the documentary at all, I believe everything those brave women said.’
Brand, who has denied all the claims and insists any relationships were ‘consensual’, was dropped by a charity working to end violence against women in light of the accusations published by the two media outlets.
