A video has resurfaced of Russell Brand appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show in 2013, where he flirted inappropriately with actress Katharine McPhee, leaving her visibly uncomfortable. The video has gained attention in light of recent allegations of rape, sexual assault, and emotional abuse against Russell by four women. The allegations are said to have taken place between 2006 and 2013, while Russell worked for BBC Radio 2 and Channel 4.
… In the interview, Brand refused to move from his chair as Katharine approached, and then suggestively bounced her on his lap. Host Jimmy Fallon intervened, telling Russell to stop and look away. It was during the conversation that Russell realized Katharine was married and abruptly ended the interaction.
