Russell Brand news: Actor says he ‘snogged’ Meghan Markle
Long before Meg married Prince Harry, she was an actress and had a slew of roles in TV shows and movies. One of these included Russell Brand’s 2010 flick Get Him To The Greek. Meghan played the role of partygoer Tatiana.

What did Russell Brand say about Meghan?
Russell added: “Meghan Markle, didn’t know at the time because she wasn’t married to a royal person. I don’t remember the film that much, I think I planted one on her in the scene.
“It was scripted in the scene. I only know this because I think I saw a clip of it somewhere. Meghan Markle, there we go.” He went on: “They should bring that up [at the wedding]… if anyone has any reason… yeah Russell Brand snogged her in the film!”
What is Russell accused of?
The reported accusations against Brand come from several women accusing him of rape, sexual assault and emotional and physical abuse. The incidents allegedly took place at the height of his fame when Brand himself confessed he was “very promiscuous”. According to reports, the first woman claimed he raped her up against a wall at his home in Los Angeles.
A second reportedly alleged he forced her, when she was aged 16, to perform oral sex. It is claimed he was 31 at the time. She says she punched him in the stomach to make him stop.
A third alleged victim claims to have worked with the comedian. She is said to claim he sexually assaulted her before threatening legal action if she spoke out. And a fourth woman has reportedly accused him of sexually assaulting her, as well as being emotionally and physically abusive.
