It has been reported that a man in his 40s came to a police station in south London on November 16 and was interviewed regarding allegations of "three non-recent sexual offences".
After an investigation by the Sunday Times, the Times and Channel 4's Dispatches revealed 4 allegations of rape, sexual assaults and emotional abuse against Russell Brand between 2006 and 2013. He quickly denied the claims saying his relationships "were absolutely, always consensual".
The Times newspaper reported that the Met confirmed that a man in his 40s came to a police station in south London on November 16.
He was interviewed under caution by detectives concerning allegations of "three non-recent sexual offences".
The Met said in September that it would investigate allegations of "non-recent" sexual offences, after receiving several allegations. They are encouraging anyone who has fallen victim to sexual assault to come forward "no matter how long ago it was".
As well as the accusations of sexual offences, including rape, the investigation claimed he had also behaved inappropriately at work, and displayed predatory and controlling behaviour.
After the allegations of "non-recent" sexual offences were reported to the Met, Brand put out a video in which he was critical of the mainstream media but did not directly address the claims against him.
