WARNING: This article contains details of sexual assault and rape.

Dannii Minogue once labelled Russell Brand a 'vile predator' after an incident on his show.

The Aussie pop star, 51, previously opened up on an encounter she had with Brand, 48, where he took things a 'step too far'.

Back in 2006, Minogue opened up about her experiences with Brand after appearing on his MTV chat show 1 Leicester Square.

Speaking to The Mirror at the time, Minogue talked about Brand, saying: "He is completely crazy and a bit of a vile predator.

"I certainly don’t think he has cured his sex addiction, that’s for sure."

The 'I Begin to Wonder' singer went on: "He wouldn’t take no for an answer. He always goes that step too far.

"Never quite far enough to slap his face, but usually too far."

Minogue continued: "He’s obviously very intelligent – but he wears more make-up than I do.

"Normally I love guys with eyeliner on. It can be very sexy, but not on Russell. Absolutely no way, never, he’s just not my type."

She went on to add that Brand told her he 'got sacked' from the network in the past 'for wearing an Osama bin Laden costume to work the day after September 11'.

"I couldn’t believe that I’d just agreed to be interviewed by someone who would do something like that," she recalled, "it really unnerved me."

Minogue also revealed: "And then throughout the whole interview, he kept making shocking remarks that I can’t even repeat. Just uttering the words would make me blush."

The star also claimed that Brand later followed her down a corridor and tried to get her phone number.

Tyla has contacted a representative for Dannii Minogue for a comment.

Brand was accused of rape by four women following a bombshell report published on Saturday afternoon (16 September) featuring a joint investigation by Channel 4 show Dispatches and The Times.

The four women have made allegations against Brand pertaining to a period between 2006 and 2013, whilst he was employed by the BBC, Channel 4, and acting in Hollywood films.

One woman alleges that the British comedian raped her against a wall in his home in Los Angeles. She was treated at a rape crisis centre the same day, according to medical records.

She later sent him a text explaining that she felt she had been taken advantage of, adding: "When a girl say[s] NO it means no," to which Brand allegedly replied and said he was 'very sorry'.

A second woman said Brand assaulted her when she was 16 and still at school and he allegedly referred to her as 'the child' during a relationship that lasted for about three months.

She claimed that he 'forced his penis down her throat', making her choke.

After she tried to push him off, she says she had to punch him in the stomach to make him stop.

A third woman alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Brand while working with him in Los Angeles and claimed she was threatened by him if she took legal action or told anyone about her allegations.

A fourth woman also alleges she was sexually assaulted by Brand and that he was physically and emotionally abusive towards her.

The women have chosen to remain anonymous.

Brand has vehemently denied the allegations and said his relationships have been consensual.
