Russell Brand has been accused of pinning a woman onto a sofa and kissing her, despite her telling him to stop.
The claims have surfaced from a fifth woman less than a week after the comedian-turned-Hollywood-star was accused of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse. Russell Brand has strongly denied the previous accusations and said all his relationships were consensual.
Four other women have allegedly come forward with claims against the 48 year old during the time Russell was a presenter on BBC Radio 2 and Channel 4, between 2006 and 2013.
The alleged victim has claimed to The Sun that the recent documentary released on Channel 4 has brought up painful memories of when she was just 21 years old and she met Russell in London.
The woman claimed she met Russell in 2008 at the Soho Theatre in London where she was later invited to a bar when she accidentally spilt her drink on the presenter. She claimed Russell then asked for her phone number and asked her to send racy snaps, to which the woman sent a picture in her bra and pyjama shorts.
The alleged victim was then invited to Russell's dressing room after a gig where she claims that he encouraged her and her female friend to perform sexual actions on each other, to which they refused.
Speaking with The Sun, the woman claimed that Russell forced her onto the sofa and started "kissing" her on the neck and "holding" her down.
She told the publication: "He was telling me to stay. This went on for about ten minutes or so until he stopped. Something in him switched and he became very nasty, very fast. He started saying, 'Don't you know who I am? Why wouldn't you want to do this".
She also claimed the Russell sent her a letter of apology for his behaviour on that night.
Addressing his YouTube channel subscribers last week, Russell shut down all allegations against him, telling the camera: "I’ve received two extremely disturbing letters… listing a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks.
"Amidst this litany of astonishing, rather baroque attacks are some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute. 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. As I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very very promiscuous. During that time of promiscuity the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual.
"I was always transparent about that then, almost too transparent, and I’m being transparent about it now, as well. And to see the transparency metastasised into something criminal, that I absolutely deny, makes me think, 'Is there another agenda at play?'"
