Did Katy Perry Dodge A Bullet? Ex Russell Brand Investigated For Allegedly Assaulting Masseuse
Russell Brand hasn't been in the news since he allegedly dumped wife Katy Perry over text message on New Year's Eve in 2011- But now the controversial British comedian is making headlines again for all the wrong reasons.
According to The Daily Telegraph, Brand was investigated by Thames Valley Police after a luxury masseuse accused him of assaulting her during an appointment at the Oxfordshire mansion of the 39-year-old's girlfriend, socialite Jemima Khan, 40.
Hungarian-born Szilvia Berki, 31, who charges nearly $1,000 per massage, alleged that Brand shoved her in a scuffle over the service she was requested to perform, the U.K. newspaper reports.
Officers reportedly followed up on the June complaint, but dropped the case due to lack of evidence.
In a Twitter account believed to belong to Berki, the disgruntled masseuse spoke out about the alleged crime.
"My friend said to me if I would have done the same to them what they did to me, I would sit in prison. They are free!!! #scary," she posted.
