Timeline of events around Russell Brand allegations
Caprice Bourret says she has “no words” after an interview between herself and Russell Brand resurfaced in the recent Dispatches documentary on Channel 4.
The model spoke exclusively with Express.co.uk and other publications on the red carpet at The Sun’s Who Cares Wins Awards 2023.
Russell has recently been accused of rape, sexual assault and controlling and emotionally abusive behaviour by four women during the height of his fame between 2006 and 2013.
The allegations were published in last Saturday’s documentary, Russell Brand: In Plain Sight. He denies all allegations and claims all his relationships were consensual.
During the documentary, a 2006 MTV interview between Brand and Caprice was shown.
The clip shows Russell speaking to Caprice about her latest projects. The businesswoman had recently just launched a lingerie collection which led Brand to ask her a series of unusual questions.
During one question, he asked her if she would ever close down her business if someone were to hang themselves with one of her bras. Completely startled, Caprice gave an awkward laugh and replied: “No, you’re mad, you’re crazy!”
He also asked: “Caprice, are you wearing one of your own bras…I mean are you wearing a bra designed by you now?”
She responded: “No but I’m wearing my knickers,” to which Russell shot back: “Get them off.”
Going along with Russell’s joke, Caprice then stood up and said, “Okay then,” before sitting back down.
Brand then continued: “There won’t be a point where I’ll say, ‘Oh don’t’. There will be a point where I will go, ‘Go on then’,” before he implies that he is masturbating. Caprice was visibly taken aback by his actions and appeared unamused.
Caprice has now broken her silence on the unearthed interview and said that it’s “toxic.”
“I just have no words, honestly. It’s just really toxic,” she told us.
“I can’t even remember the interview. I didn’t even know him. I had no idea who he was. I should probably watch [the documentary] so I can comment properly.”
She added: “I can’t remember. I can’t remember the interview. I just got told I was in the documentary.”

Before the Channel 4 documentary aired last weekend, Russell posted a lengthy YouTube video denying all the claims, while insisting that all his relationships have been consensual.
He claimed he was the subject of a “coordinated attack” involving some “very serious allegations that I absolutely refute”.
Four women made accusations against the comedian over alleged incidents from the height of his career between 2006 and 2013.
Brand has been suspended from making money on YouTube following the allegations and been axed by his talent agency, Tavistock Wood, who have claimed that they were “horribly misled” after the claims.
