In The Goss column on May 25 we published an article “Fan saves Amy Winehouse from Russell Brand’s Dad” in which it was stated that Ron Brand had made unwelcome and inappropriate advances to Amy Winehouse, as a result of which a fan had to intervene and slap him. On May 28, we repeated the allegation in the follow up article “Russell Brand’s call to Wino”.
We accept that Ron Brand did not behave in such a disrespectful way towards Ms Winehouse with whom he is good friends. We acknowledge also that the so called “fan” has been cautioned by the police for assault. We apologise to Mr Brand for both articles.
