Brand had preemptively denied the accusations ahead of the release of these reports. He posted a video Friday night denying “a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks.” “During that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual. I was always transparent about that then, almost too transparent, and I’m being transparent about it now as well,” he said.
