A woman who claims she was raped by Russell Brand against a wall in her Los Angeles home has written a letter to the comedian telling him: “You completely broke me.”
The alleged attack is one of numerous complaints from women accusing him of abusive and predatory behavior, including rape, sexual assault and psychological abuse, between 2006 and 2013.
Brand “absolutely denies” the allegations and insists all of his relationships were consensual.
The businesswoman, who The temperature called out Nadia to protect her identity, told the publication she spoke out to help improve women’s safety and was ‘angry’ for cultivating her image as a wellness influencer while “I know the demon underneath.”
Nadia, who claims Brand raped her without a condom while she visited his Los Angeles home in July 2012, said she wrote him a letter after considering, and ultimately deciding against, hiring criminal or civil proceedings.
In her letter to Brand, originally intended to be between her and her therapist, Nadia wrote: “Do you know what you put me through? My body through? My emotions and my body are upset… You scared me on July 1st.

She continued: “I thought in any situation I would be strong enough to fight someone. But when it’s someone you know, you don’t expect to be put in that position. You completely destroyed me.’
Following the alleged attack, Nadia said she went to a rape treatment center — something she told Brand in the letter. “I didn’t see the fun-loving guy in front of me,” she wrote. “I saw a man who could not control himself and the word NO is more of a challenge than an order.”
Nadia, who was in her 30s at the time, claims she exchanged numbers with Brand at a party before being invited to his house in June 2012, where they later had consensual sex.
Brand then begged her to come back to his house early on the morning of July 1 after texting her in an earlier exchange suggesting she “bring a friend.”
She then found Brand at his home on the morning of July 1, during which she alleges the comedian raped her against a wall after she repeatedly told him to “get down.”
When she arrived at his house, she said the door was unlocked and she went straight in. She added: “He runs out of the room, naked. And I’m a little surprised. I have a bag on my shoulder, a little dress and a coat on top.
Nadia alleged that Brand pushed her against a wall and kissed her. She says he then told her that “a friend” was waiting in his room to join them.
She said: “I’m like, no, that’s not happening, I don’t care, that’s not happening, we’re not doing that.”
Nadia alleged that Brand then raped her without a condom. Once he finished, she pushed him away and ran for the door, she claimed.
She said Brand blocked the door to stop her from leaving and told her to “calm down.” She said he eventually walked away when she asked to go to the bathroom.
Texts seen by The Times allegedly sent by Brand later that night read: “I’m sorry. It was crazy and selfish. I hope you can forgive me, I know you are a lovely person. X.’ He allegedly tried to call her at 3:51 a.m., to which Nadia did not answer.
Nadia said she didn’t respond to Brand’s text until 10:59 a.m. and told Brand he had “scared the shit out of me.” She added: “When a girl says (sic) NO, it means no. Should I go get tested?
Brand responded that he was “very sorry” and told Nadia: “You don’t need to get tested.”
Nadia then went to a rape treatment center the same day and underwent therapy at the clinic for five months, according to documents seen by The Times.
Before the allegations were published, Brand shared a video on YouTube saying he had received two “extremely disturbing letters from a ‘mainstream television company’ and a newspaper.”
Addressing his fans, the comedian said he had been accused of “a litany of extremely blatant and aggressive attacks, which are false.”
Full comments from Russell Brand:
Hello, you awaken wonders. This is not the usual type of video we make on this channel, in which we criticize, attack and undermine the information in all its corruption, because in this story I am the news.
I received two extremely disturbing letters – or a letter and an email – one from a mainstream television company, the other from a newspaper listing a litany of extremely blatant and aggressive attacks, as well as pretty stupid stuff, as my community festival should be. be arrested and I should not be able to attack mainstream media narratives on this channel.
But in the middle of this litany of astonishing, somewhat baroque attacks, there are very serious allegations that I absolutely refute. These allegations relate to a time when I was in the mainstream, when I was in newspapers all the time, when I was in movies, and as I have written extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous.
During this period of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual. I was always transparent about it then, almost too transparent, and I am now as well.
And seeing this transparency metastasized into something criminal that I absolutely deny makes me wonder if there is another agenda at play.
Especially when we’ve already seen coordinated media attacks, like that of Joe Rogan, where he dared to take a drug that the mainstream media didn’t approve of, and we’ve seen a series of headlines from media outlets around the world using the same language.
I am aware that in the comments you have been saying for a while “be careful Russell, they are coming for you”, “you are getting too close to the truth”, “Russell Brand did not commit suicide”.
I know a year ago there was an avalanche of articles: Russell Brand is a conspiracy theorist; Russell Brand is right-wing.
I know newspapers make phone calls and send letters to people I know. For centuries it has been clear to me, or at least it seems to me, that there is a serious and concerted agenda to control these kinds of spaces and these kinds of voices.
I need my voice with your voice. I don’t mind them using my books and me standing up to talk about my promiscuous sexual conduct in the past. What I seriously refute are these very, very serious criminal allegations.
It’s also worth mentioning that there are witnesses whose testimonies directly contradict the narratives these two major media outlets are trying to construct, apparently as part of what appears to me to be a coordinated attack.
Now, I don’t want to delve into this further due to the seriousness of the allegations, but I feel like I’m being attacked and it’s clear that they work very closely together.
We will obviously look into this issue because it is very, very serious.
In the meantime, I want you to stay close, to stay awake, but more importantly than all of that, if you can stay free.
