RUSSELL Brand has been accused of simulating a sex act on a female audience member on live television, The Sun can reveal on Sunday.
In 2007, he grabbed the woman by the back of the head and rammed his crotch into her in the studio.
The woman later said in an online fan forum that she found it humiliating. She wrote: “I didn’t find it funny. Certainly it is illegal.
“I only really learned the intensity of his actions after the show.
“I heard everyone else laughing and laughed a bit nervously, it all happened very quickly and you can’t just walk out anyway because the doors are locked and I didn’t want to attract any more attention to myself. I won’t go back.”
Her lawsuit comes after Brand, 48, was accused of a series of sexual assaults – including rape – against women between 2003 and 2013.
Allegations against Brand were made last month by the Sunday Times, the Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches.
Another woman later contacted police claiming he had sexually assaulted her in Soho, central London, in 2003.
Brand denies any wrongdoing and says all of his sexual relationships were consensual.
