Russell Brand 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. The Get Him to the Greek actor is married to Laura Gallacher, whose father is legendary golfer Bernard Gallacher.
According to reports, Bernard had some words of warning for his daughter before she married Brand. He reportedly begged her not to marry him due to their age gap, as Laura had only been 19 when they were introduced in 2007 by her sister Kirsty Gallacher, who worked for Sky Sports.
However, Laura and Brand reunited in 2015 and got engaged in 2016 before tying the knot the following summer. They now have two daughters, Mabel and Peggy.
Brand had previously been married to US singer Katy Perry. He ended their 14-month marriage via text message.
The resurfaced comments come as more women have spoken out with accusations of inappropriate behaviour from Brand. The actor has denied all allegations of assault made against him, saying any sexual acts were ‘consensual’, and has admitted to being ‘promiscuous’ back in the day due to a sex addiction.
Investigations are also underway at the BBC, Channel 4 and Banijay UK, as they look into Brand’s behaviour while he was working on their programmes. Additionally, the Metropolitan Police has received a report of an alleged sexual assault from 2003 in Soho, London.
Brand has not been seen in public since his sold-out show at Wembley on Saturday night, where he was met with cheers and a standing ovation from the crowd. However, his upcoming tour shows have been postponed, and YouTube has suspended Brand from monetising his video content due to the ‘serious allegations’.
