Brand has denied all of the allegations, firmly stating that all of his relationships have been consensual.

The decision to sever ties with Brand comes just hours after a damning investigation by The Times and Channel 4's Dispatches brought these allegations to light.

As RadarOnline.com reported, four women have reportedly come forward with claims against the actor and comedian, with the incidents said to have taken place between 2006 and 2013. One of the alleged victims claims to have had a three-month relationship with Brand when she was only 16 and still in school while he was 31.

During the time in question, Brand was a prominent figure in the entertainment industry, known for his work as a presenter on BBC Radio 2 and Channel 4, as well as starring in several Hollywood films such as Get Him to the Greek.

The gravity of the allegations is further underscored by the fact that Brand was at the height of his fame during this period.

In a preemptive response to these accusations, Brand released a video statement on X, formally known as Twitter, denying the allegations.

He claims the accusations were presented to him in the form of a letter and email from an unnamed television program and newspaper.

"One from a mainstream media TV company, one from a newspaper listing a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks, as well as some pretty stupid stuff like community festival should be stopped, that I shouldn't be able to attack mainstream media narratives on this channel," the actor told his 1.1 million followers on X.

"But amidst this litany of astonishing rather baroque attacks, often very serious allegations that I absolutely refute," he continued. "These allegations pertain to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies. And as I've written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous."
