Russell Brand had sex with a Filipino prostitute when he was 16 years old while on holiday his father who slept with two hookers in the same hotel room.
Brand had only had sex once before when his father Ron hired the ‘beautiful and elegant’ woman to bed his teenage son on their holiday in Asia.
The comedian, now 48, previously told how he and the woman, who was only a few years older than him, had ‘timid, awkward sex’ that left him feeling like he ‘loved’ her.
But despite his seemingly fond memories of their encounter, the experience was not romantic. Brand could hear his father, lying with two women in the bed next to him, scream out ‘Bleeding hell! I’m going to be sick!’ as he lied with the Filipina woman.
The morning after their night of debauchery, Ron scolded Brand for not using a condom, according to a Sunday People report in 2006. Ron also applauded his son, telling him: ‘I went away wiv a boy but I’m coming back wiv a man’.
Brand this week was accused of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse between 2006 and 2013 by four women with whom he was allegedly romantically involved.
It comes as Channel 4 and the BBC have both launched internal investigations into separate accusations of predatory behaviour towards staff and audience members by Brand during the time of his employment.
The ex-staffers have claimed that Brand got them to ‘act like pimps’ by getting the numbers of women in the audience and passing notes to them from the presenter.
Brand vehemently denies the allegations and claims that all of his relationships have been consensual.

The comedian previously told Love For Sale with Rupert Everett how he and the woman, who was only a few years older than him, had ‘timid, awkward sex’ that left him feeling like he ‘loved’ her. Brand, pictured on the programme in 2014, said: ‘I loved her. She was beautiful and elegant and sort of sweet and I felt sort of relieved, and in awe, and frightened of her’
Brand has said that prostitution and sex began part of his ‘nocturnal, crimson-lit, back alley life’ while he battled drug addiction.
Appearing on Love For Sale with Rupert Everett nearly a decade ago, Brand explained how he felt a ‘connection’ to ‘maligned outsiders’ and ‘clambered willing’ into the ‘world of illicit nocturnal darkness’.
The comedian, seemingly implying that his first time with a prostitute impacted his future relationship with sex, told Mr Everett that he ‘loved’ the woman his father provided him.
‘The first time I slept with a prostitute I was maybe 16-years-old, the girl was probably not much older – 17, 18 I don’t know, a couple of years older than me – and I loved her,’ he recalled.
‘I loved her. She was beautiful and elegant and sort of sweet and I felt sort of relieved, and in awe, and frightened of her.’
He said that being with the woman was ‘incredible and dazzling’, especially since he had only had sex ‘once before’.
Brand, a self-proclaimed drugs and sex addict, would later become one of Britain’s most notorious womanisers and outrageous comics.

He has previously said he had no regrets about his past sexual behaviours, claiming to have had intimate relationships with hundreds of women.
Brand was married to US pop star Katy Perry from 2010 to 2012, and is now married to Laura Gallacher, the sister of presenter Kirsty Gallacher, and they have two children, Mabel and Peggy, with a third on the way.
He is also understood to have slept with supermodel Kate Moss (who regretted her choice) and then allegedly with Moss’ friend Sadie Frost, too.
Brand has now been accused of rape, sexual assaults and emotional abuse during a seven-year period at the height of his fame. The allegations were published yesterday in The Sunday Times and on Channel 4’s Dispatches.
The allegations made against Brand include one woman who claims she was sexually assaulted during a three-month relationship with him when she was 16 and still at school.
The woman described his behaviour towards her as ‘grooming’ as he would allegedly provide her with scripts on how to deceive her parents into allowing her to visit him.
In 2020, the woman contacted Brand’s literary agent at the time, who was also the co-founder of talent agency Tavistock Wood.
A statement given to MailOnline by Tavistock Wood said: ‘Russell Brand categorically and vehemently denied the allegation made in 2020, but we now believe we were horribly misled by him. TW has terminated all professional ties to Brand.’
Another woman alleges that Brand raped her at his Los Angeles home while a third claims that Brand sexually assaulted her while she worked with him in Los Angeles and threatened to take legal action if she told anyone of the allegation.
A fourth woman claims she was sexually assaulted by Brand and alleges that he was physically and emotionally abusive towards her.
The allegations were made in a 90-minute Channel 4 Dispatches film which also saw other women speak of their experiences working with Brand on TV sets, including his former personal assistant Helen Berger, who called him a ‘narcissist’.
As the film aired, Brand appeared as scheduled at the 2,000-capacity Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in north-west London to perform a sold-out comedy gig.
While not directly addressing the allegations, audience members claimed Brand said he hoped they could ‘appreciate’ there were things he could not talk about during the set.
The comedian released a video last week refuting all the allegations against him. Pictured: Brand leaving the Troubabour Wembley Park theatre after a gig last night
In a video statement, posted online ahead of the publication of the claims, Brand claimed he was facing a ‘litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks’.
He continued: ‘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 and, as I have written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous.
‘Now, 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 am being transparent about it now as well.
‘To see that transparency metastasised into something criminal, that I absolutely deny, makes me question is there another agenda at play.’
Russell Brand’s comments in full:
Hello there you awakening wonders. Now this is not the usual type of video we make on this channel where we critique, attack and undermine the news in all its corruption because in this story I am the news.
I have received two extremely disturbing letters – or a letter and an email – one from a mainstream media TV company, one from a newspaper listing a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks, as well as some pretty stupid stuff, like my community festival should be stopped and I shouldn’t be able to attack mainstream media narratives on this channel.
But amidst this litany of astonishing rather baroque attacks are some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute. These allegations pertain to a time when I was in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies, and 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 am being transparent about it now as well.
And to see that transparency metastasized into something criminal that I absolutely deny makes me question is there another agenda at play.
Particularly when we have seen coordinated media attacks before, like Joe Rogan where he dared to take a medicine the mainstream media didn’t approve of and we saw a spate of headlines of media outlets around the world using the same language.
I am aware that you guys in the comments have been for a while saying ‘watch out Russell, they’re coming for you,’ ‘you are getting too close to the truth’, ‘Russell Brand did not kill himself’.’
I know a year ago there was a spate of articles: Russell Brand is a conspiracy theorists; Russell Brand is right wing.
I am aware of newspapers making phone calls, sending letters to people I know. For ages and ages, it’s been clear to me or at least feels to be there’s a serious and consorted agenda to control these kinds of spaces and these kind of voices.
I need my voice along with your voice. I don’t mind them using my books and my stand up to talk about my promiscuous sexual conduct in the past. What I seriously refute are these very, very serious, criminal allegations.
Also its worth mentioning that there are witnesses whose evidence directly contradicts the narratives that these two mainstream media outlets are trying to construct, apparently in what seems to be to me a coordinated attack.
Now, I don’t want to get into this any further because of the serious nature of the allegations but I feel like I’m being attacked and plainly they are working very closely together.
We are obviously going to look into this matter because it is very, very serious.
In the meantime, I want you to stay close, stay awake but more importantly than any of that, if you can stay free.
