Russell Brand seems to be in hot waters as four women have accused him of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse.

The allegations were exposed in a detailed joint investigation by The Times and The Sunday Times in collaboration with Channel 4.

The investigation was published in The Sunday Times on Friday while the documentary, Russell Brand – In Plain Sight, aired the next day i.e Saturday, Sept, 16 on Channel 4.

The four women who came forward to vocalize their long pressed trauma are alleging sexual assaults between 2006 and 2013 - the time when Russell Brand hit the jackpot of his success.

During this period of spanning over 7 years the actor and comedian have had several high profile jobs at different times, including at BBC Radio 2, Channel 4 and as a Hollywood film actor.

One woman claims that the Arthur actor raped her in his Los Angeles home and the same day she was treated at rape crisis centre. The Times has got it hands on the medical records to support the claim.

Second woman alleged that Brand assaulted her during a grooming session which at that time she haven't got an idea what it was as she was just 16 years old.

A third woman stated that she worked with Rock of Ages actor in Los Angeles and he sexually assaulted her. In addition to that he threatened him to take legal action if she ever opens her mouth against him.

The fourth one accused Brand of being physically and emotionally abusive towards her, she further added that she was sexually assaulted by Brand.

As of yet Russell Brand has denied the allegations and steered clear of his conscience as he stated that during his period of "promiscuity" his relationships have been "always consensual."
