Another woman has come forward accusing Russell Brand of exposing himself to her.
The BBC reports a woman has claimed the alleged incident happened in 2008 when they were both working at the same building in Los Angeles, where the BBC’s LA office was.
He allegedly exposed himself to the woman and later laughed about the alleged incident on his BBC radio show.
A woman spoke to the BBC anonymously alleging she worked for a media company in the same building as Brand, and on June 16 2008 opened the door to Brand and his team who were allegedly there to pre-record an episode of The Russell Brand Show for Raadio 2.
She claims she went to the bathroom, walking past the radio studio, and squatted on the floor to look through the medicine cabinet.
The woman alleges she felt someone behind her and turned to find Brand’s crotch in her face, with the comedian allegedly telling her ‘I think you’re a bit of alright’ and ‘I’m going to f*** you.’
She claims she told him they would not be having sex, at which point he allegedly took out his penis and ‘pretty much served it to me as you would be serving someone some food.’
The bathroom door was closed, she alleged, and she felt trapped and ‘didn’t know what to do.’
Speaking anonymously, she claims he put his penis back in his trousers and someone from his team banged on the door, at which point he left the room.
The woman – who the BBC are calling Olivia (not her real name) – says she returned to her desk and texted a BBC employee about what happened, at which point the employee said Brand was talking about the alleged incident in the studio.
In a new article, the BBC shared a transcript of the programme which aired on June 21, days after the alleged incident, in which Matt Morgan says it has ‘been 25 minutes since he showed his willy to a lady,’ calling her ‘the receptionist.’
Brand can reportedly be heard laughing, saying it is ‘very easy to judge.’
‘Olivia’ told the BBC she has never worked as a receptionist.
She said she feels ‘ashamed,’ and never made a complaint to the BBC, but hoped someone from the organisation would contact her after hearing the radio recording – they never did, and she assumed the graphic audio had been cut from the final programme.
But in 2019, a BBC staff member who was made aware of the alleged incident from ‘Olivia’ told BBC management, but no formal action was taken.
The new allegations come after BBC Director General Tim Davie ordered a review into Brand’s time at the organisation.
Brand has been accused of sexual abuse and rape by multiple women in a joint investigation from The Times and Channel 4.
He has denied all allegations and insisted all his relationships were consensual.
Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Brand for comment.
