British Queen celebrates


YouTube has barred Russell Brand from generating income through his channel, citing a violation of their Creator Responsibility policy. The 48-year-old, who produces

roughly five videos weekly for his 6.6 million subscribers, earns an estimated £1 million annually.

During his suspension, Brand can continue uploading videos but will not receive advertising revenue. YouTube stated, "If a creator's off-platform behavior harms our users, employees, or ecosystem, we take action to protect the community. This decision applies to all channels that may be owned or operated by Russell Brand."

Brand's channel network includes "Football Is Nice" (20,000 subscribers), "Awakening With Russell" (426,000 subscribers), and "Stay Free With Russell Brand" (22,200 subscribers).

Recently, allegations of abusive and predatory behavior, including rape, sexual assault, and emotional abuse, were reported against Brand, covering the period from 2006 to 2013. These allegations have already led to Channel 4 removing all programs connected to Brand from its website, along with other professional repercussions.

Brand maintains his innocence, asserting that all his relationships were consensual. While the suspension from YouTube's Partner Programme impacts his earnings, it is unlikely to have a significant impact on his overall net worth, which is estimated between £15 million and £40 million.
