Weeks after Brand received frightening sexual assault allegations, Price sat down for a heart-to-heart interview where she weighed in on her fellow England native's troubles.

Reflecting on their relationship, the mother of five explained that the pair were not best buds. However, she had encountered the comedian several times. Although Price did not believe he was a bad guy, an encounter left the 45-year-old weary of Brand's personality.

"I've met Russell a few times. His bodyguard used to be mine. I thought he was quite a nice guy, actually, quite funny," Price admitted before recalling the incident that changed her mind about the "Death on the Nile" actor.

"We were stuck in LAX airport with him once. He had his girlfriend with him, and I was with Pete. He was trying to pull my stylist when his girlfriend was out there standing with her, so to me, that says a lot. The truth always comes out in the end," the Brighton beauty said to the Guardian.

When asked if she believed it was easy for celebrities to escape punishment for their crimes, the model echoed her agreement. "A lot of people with status get away with things. People cover up for them, and a load of people get paid off," Price claimed.

Despite the "Celebrity Big Brother" alum's concerns about A-listers getting away with crimes, the authorities are out to uncover the truth behind Brand's alleged crimes. Price's comments about the media personality come on the heels of a second UK police force's investigation of the sexual assault case.

Two weeks ago, the Thames Valley Police were contacted by a woman claiming to have "new information" about Brand's case. The lady in question was previously accused by the "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" actor of harassment in 2017. Per reports, she also lodged allegations against him between 2018 and 2022.

Before the second investigation, the Met Police revealed they were looking into Brand's past following several "non-recent" sexual offense allegations made against him.

A representative for the authorities stressed that anyone who might have suffered at the comedian's hands should report the crime "no matter how long ago it was." The plea came after four women slammed the BAFTA Award recipient with sexual assault and rape allegations.

The stand-up personality has, however, refuted these defamatory claims. Although he admitted to being promiscuous at the height of his fame, Brand stressed that he never forced anyone to be his sexual partner.

"Now, during that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely, always consensual," Brand said in an Instagram video. "I was always transparent about that then, almost too transparent, and I am being transparent about it now as well."
