Russell Brand says baptism is ‘opportunity to leave past behind’


April 30, 2024

British comedian and actor, Russell Brand has announced plans to be baptised to ‘leave the past behind’ after sexual assault allegations were exposed.

The controversial comedian took to Instagram to say he was embracing his Christian faith after a difficult year.

Last year a documentary exposed allegations of sexual assaults during the height of his fame, as part of an investigation.

In October 2023, Russell faced serious accusations from a series of women, including rape and sexual assault when four women made allegations.

The comedian has, however, strenuously denied wrongdoing and says he has evidence to refute allegations.
