The suit alleges that Russell "appeared intoxicated, smelled of alcohol, and was carrying a bottle of vodka on set," and proceeded to expose himself to the alleged victim in front of the cast and crew.

The accuser also claims that, later in the day, Russell followed her into the bathroom and assaulted her while "a member of production crew guarded the door from outside."

The lawsuit follows multiple allegations of sexual assault, rape, and emotional abuse that were unearthed in September of this year. The Metropolitan Police are currently investigating.

Shortly before the allegations were made public, Russell shared a video to social media titled, "This is happening," where he denied the allegations ahead of time.

“These allegations pertain to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies," he stated. "And as I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous."

"Now, 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.”
