A clip has resurfaced of Kelly Brook warning a presenter to stay away from Russell Brand after he joked about pictures of the model as a teenager.
The Get Him to the Greek actor, 48, is currently facing a series of allegations from women claiming he sexually assaulted and raped them over a seven-year period at the height of his fame.
In the clip from 2006, Brand began the MTV interview by asking to shake Brook’s hand as she goes in for a kiss on the cheek, saying: ‘That’s what we do in Europe isn’t it?’
Brand commented on the fact that Brook’s ex-fiance Billy Zane looked a lot like her former boyfriend Jason Statham and asked what her father looked like and how he treated her.
She said: ‘My dad was very protective, if you could see pictures of me as a 15/16 year old…’ Brand interjected: ‘Yeah that would be alright, send them!’
Eight years after the interview, Brook was interviewed by budding MTV presenter Becca Dudley, who asked the model for ‘tips’ on working in the industry.
Brook responded: ‘Stay away from Russell Brand! No, he was a bit later than me.
‘Just have fun. make the most of the freebies, go to all the festivals, stay away from rock stars.’
The resurfaced comments come as more women have spoken out with accusations of inappropriate behaviour from Brand.
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star has denied all the allegations against him, saying any sexual acts were ‘consensual’, but admitted to being ‘promiscuous’ back in the day as he had a sex addiction.
One alleged victim says she was just 16 at the time Brand assaulted her, with the allegations coming to light following a lengthy investigation by Channel 4 and The Times, with a Dispatches special over the weekend describing them in harrowing detail.
This morning, YouTube suspended Brand from monetising his video content for ‘violating Creator Responsibility policy’ after the ‘serious allegations.’
The Google-owned company said in a statement: ‘We have suspended monetisation on Russell Brand’s channel for violating our Creator Responsibility policy.
‘If a creator’s off-platform behaviour harms our users, employees or ecosystem, we take action to protect the community.’
