Sharon Osbourne has hit out at Russell Brand in a scathing rant following the sexual assault allegations made against him.

As previously reported, Brand, 48, finds himself facing grave allegations of sexual assault and predatory behavior.

The disturbing claims against Brand came to light following a comprehensive investigation conducted jointly by The Times and Channel 4's Dispatches.

These allegations, which have sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry, are reported to span the years from 2006 to 2013 when Brand was at the pinnacle of his career, making waves as both a comedian and an actor in Hollywood.

Check out what Sharon Osbourne had to say about Russell Brand recently:

Following the allegations, Sharon Osbourne, who claims to have known Brand for "going on 20 years" has lashed out at the comedian over his previous negative interactions with Bob Geldof and his daughter Fifi and Rod Stewart and his loved ones.

Speaking to Piers Morgan on his TalkTV show, Osbourne said: "The only thing I can say about Russell Brand, is the two things I don’t like, was when he spoke about… one of them is a very good friend of ours, Kimberley Stewart, about what he had done to Kimberley Stewart in front of her father [Rod Stewart].

"And then he did the same with Sir Bob Geldof… You just don't do that to people's families, when that father is in the room. He's done it twice now and that's the thing that sticks with me."

Osbourne's comments were in reference to an incident that unfolded between Stewart and Brand at the GQ Man of the Year awards, as reported by the Mirror.

Standing on the stage, Brand said: "Here's to Rod Stewart who had a go at me earlier this year for too much womanizing. But then again I did have a go on his daughter."

Later in the evening, Stewart took to the stage and said: "You went with my daughter, did you? Russell, stand up."

Responding to Sir Rod's demand, Russell quipped: "I took her out for one evening," as Stewart replied: "Did you behave yourself?"

After Brand said: "I never touched that girl," Stewart replied: "F***ing right you didn't. You musn't come up here and boast. I speak here as a father."

It's clear that the legendary singer didn't think too highly of Brand, but he believed that the exchange put him in his place.

Regarding the comments made about Bob Geldof, the drama began at the 2006 NME awards as Brand presented the singer with an award, saying: "Of course, the winner is Live Aid so please welcome to the stage Sir Bobby Gandalf."

Geldof then referred to Brand as a c***, to which the comedian responded later in the evening: "Bob Geldof there, obviously an amazing man to whom we have a lot to be grateful – not him calling me a c*** of course. Really it's no surprise he's such an expert on famine he has, after all, been dining out on I Don't Like Mondays for 30 years."

Fast forward 11 years, Geldof's daughter Fifi referred to Brand as an "unfunny b******" and an "uber-douche extraordinaire," per the Daily Mail.

Brand has denied all allegations against him, while the Metropolitan Police are urging any victims of his alleged crimes to come forward.
