Russell Brand's management agency and book publisher dropped him after four women accused him of sexual assault.

Russell Brand's management agency cut all ties with the actor after four women came forward accusing him of sexual assault.

The allegations were featured in a special that aired Saturday titled Russell Brand: In Plain Sight, following a joint investigation by The Times of London, The Sunday Times, and Channel 4 Dispatches.

The women accuse Brand of rape, sexual assault, and emotional abuse. One of the women alleged Brand groomed and raped her at age 16, and that she told Brand's literary agent at Tavistock Wood Management Agency in 2020.

In a statement Sunday, Tavistock Wood said it believed it was “horribly misled by him.”

“Russell Brand categorically and vehemently denied the allegation made in 2020, but we now believe we were horribly misled by him," the agency said. "TW has terminated all professional ties to Brand.”

Brand has also been dropped by the publisher of his upcoming self-help book, Bluebird, which is an imprint of Pan Macmillan. The company told The Bookseller: “These are very serious allegations and in the light of them, Bluebird has taken the decision to pause all future publishing with Russell Brand.

Brand's 2017 novel is still available on Bluebird's website, and the publisher has not said whether or not it would continue printing it.

The U.K. Metropolitan Police Service said it was "aware of the media reporting of a series of allegations of sexual assault," and that they are still working with The Sunday Times and Channel 4 "to ensure that any victims of crime who they have spoken with are aware of how they may report any criminal allegations to police."

"At this time, we have not received any reports in relation to this. If anyone believes they have been the victim of a sexual assault, no matter how long ago it happened, we would encourage them to contact police," police said in a statement.
