The remaining shows on Russell Brand’s Bipolarisation tour have been "postponed" following allegations of rape, assault and emotional abuse.

The 48-year-old has been accused of rape, assault and emotional abuse between 2006 and 2013, when he was at the height of his fame working for the BBC, Channel 4 and starring in Hollywood films.

The Metropolitan Police are now investigating Brand after receiving a report of an alleged sexual assault in the wake of the media allegations about the comedian and actor.

Brand has strongly denied the allegations, which also include claims of controlling, abusive and predatory behaviour.

YouTube has now also suspended the monetisation of Russell Brand’s channel for “violating our Creator Responsibility policy”.

Metropolitan Police investigating Russell Brand after sexual assault allegations

The Metropolitan Police said in a statement on Monday that they had received an allegation of sexual assault in 2003.

The force said: “On Sunday September 17, the Met received a report of a sexual assault which was alleged to have taken place in Soho in central London in 2003.

“Officers are in contact with the woman and will be providing her with support.

“We first spoke with The Sunday Times on Saturday September 16 and have since made further approaches to The Sunday Times and Channel 4 to ensure that anyone who believes they have been the victim of a sexual offence is aware of how to report this to the police.”

Russell Brand postpones remaining tour dates
