On Sunday, British police received a sexual assault complaint against Russell Brand. A spokesperson for London's Metropolitan Police said the complaint related to an assault that allegedly took place in Soho, central London, in 2003.

It is three years before the earliest of the assaults that four women told about in this weekend's joint review by The Times and Channel 4. The alleged assaults, one of which was committed against a 16-year-old girl, allegedly took place between 2006 and 2013.

Now, the BBC is reporting that the star can no longer monetize his Youtube channel after he broke the platform's rules.

"If a user's off-platform behavior harms our users, employees or ecosystems, we take action," a YouTube spokesperson told the BBC.

Russell Brand has 6.6 million subscribers on Youtube where he discusses spirituality and politics, among other things.

More allegations

According to The Times, more women have contacted the newspaper with allegations against Russell Brand after the publication and that those reports will now be "closely followed up".

London Police said in their statement that "we continue to encourage anyone who believes they may have been the victim of a sexual offence, no matter how long ago, to contact us".

While the allegations came to light when the Channel 4 documentary aired on Saturday night, Russell Brand appeared as a comedian for hundreds of people in a London venue, but organisers have now announced that the rest of the tour will be postponed. His agency Tavistock Wood has also cut off contact with him.

Russell Brand himself denies all allegations.
