Russell Brand

I Did NOT Run Over

That Homeless Guy's Cart

EXCLUSIVE

111812_russell_brand_launchRussell Brand is A LOT of things ... but homeless-man's-cart-runner-over is NOT one of them ... this according to Brand himself.

As TMZ previously reported, Brand was spotted picking up trash and bottles in the street earlier this week after he allegedly smashed into a homeless man's shopping cart and knocked it over.

But Sunday in Hollywood, Brand told us the video is not what it seems ... and that he just happened to drive by, saw the mess, and decided to lend a helping hand. In other words ... he's kind of a hero.

Until he mentions hitting people with his car for fun ... which we hope was a joke.

I am pleasantly surprised that he has clean teeth. Can not cope when he does the full smile though, too much gum and a bit of Mr. Ed going on.

you are getting a lot of free publicity because of the homeless man, you should donate $10,000 dollars to the homeless man...

He may have just stopped to help, or just stopped to get the cans out of the street before a jagged edge punctured his tires.

Well wasn't that nice of him? Or maybe he and the rest of the drivers just wanted to avoid running over a bunch of cans that might cut up their tires.

Actually, if you look close... I think Russell was buying drugs from that guy! You see the guy getting something from his pockets... and then when the camera man talks... the guy that russell is talking too looks over fast and nervous and Russell asks..."Is this a trick?" LOL Its cuz he thinks hes being caught! THEN the guy walks away and Russell is like..."oh..ok" Then he is talking all nervous and yea.. you can see he was totally buying drugs!! LOL

Shame on you TMZ for reporting twice before that
Russell had in fact crashed this guy's cart; the word "allegedly" was never used before now. You even reported it as a breaking news story and that you had proof on film. Turns out the film is no proof and that you got the story wrong; poor job.

TMZ should offer its apologies to Russell. You did not refer to the incident as ''Russell alagedly smashed into a homeless man's shopping cart and knocked it over". You reported it twice insisting that Russell smashed the cart, that you had the proof on film and that this was breaking news. Shame on you.
