RUSSELL Brand's wife Laura Gallacher has deleted her Instagram as the star hit back at "aggressive" claims against him.
The writer, 36, who is also the sister of TV star Kirsty Gallacher, used the social media account to promote her work.
Now, though, the page has been taken down, with the link online leading to an error message.
The most recent posts still visible on a Google search are from last year and promote Laura's book, The Joy Journal.
However, these have been deleted from the page and display the same error message.
On the Instagram app, the account is still visible but has no posts or followers, suggesting it has been deleted.

For his part, the 48-year-old took to YouTube to issue a firm denial of the as yet unrevealed claims against him.
In the clip, he stated that he had received correspondence from a major broadcaster and from a newspaper, outlining what he called "extremely egregious and aggressive attacks".
He added that he "completely refutes" all the allegations and stated that all his past relationships were "always consensual".
The actor and comedian began dating Laura in 2015 and the couple married in 2017.
They have two daughters, Mabel and Peggy, and Laura was recently pregnant with their third child.

Russell Brand’s video transcript in full
Hello there, you awakening wonders.
Now this isn't 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 – well 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, that 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 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'm 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 with Joe Rogan when he dared to take a medicine that the mainstream media didn't approve of and we saw a spate of headlines from media outlets across the world using the same language.
I’m aware that you guys have been saying in the comments for a while ‘Watch out Russell, they are coming for you, you are getting too close to the truth, Russell Brand did not kill himself’.
I know that a year ago there was a spate of articles ‘Russell Brand is a conspiracy theorist, Russell Brand’s right wing’.
I’m aware of news media making phone calls, sending letters to people I know for ages and ages.
It’s been clear to me or at least it feels to me like there's a serious and concerted agenda to control these kind of spaces and these kind of voices and I mean my voice along with your voice.
I don't mind them using my books and my stand up to talk about my promiscuous consensual conduct in the past. What I seriously refute are these very very serious criminal allegations.
Also it’s 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 me to be 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’s very, very serious. In the meantime I want you to stay close, stay awake but more important than any of that if you can, please, stay free.
