Russell Brand bragged about kissing Meghan Markle before her eventual marriage to Prince Harry – after the pair allegedly met on a Hollywood film set in 2009.
Over the weekend, the comedian has been subject to multiple claims from women accusing him of abusive and predatory behaviour, including rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse, between 2006 and 2013.
Brand ‘absolutely denies’ the allegations and insists all his relationships have been consensual.
In a resurfaced clip from ITV’s Loose Women in 2018, Brand claimed he had a brief encounter with the future Duchess of Sussex just a week before she was due to be married to Prince Harry.
The pair both featured in the 2010 film Get Him To The Greek – in which Brand played a drug-addled sexually promiscuous rockstar.
