Russell Brand‘s dad reportedly facing bankrupt over unpaid rent. Ron Brand who is sixty seven years old has also said he will not go to his millionaire son for any help, saying he would never want to “burden” him, according to The Mirror.
It is said that he owes more than £13,000 in unpaid rent and is in court today to see if a judge will declare him bankrupt. A friend has stated that Russell would be bothered by fact that his dad is facing financial difficulties.
Although father and son have a sometimes strained relationship, they are currently on good terms.
“Ron would never want to burden Russell with his problems and would never dream of asking for money,” the pal said.
“It’s a really stressful situation but Ron is determined to work through his problems.
“Ron’s made a couple of bad investments and has struggled financially as a result.
“It’s obviously upsetting but he’s confident he can turn things around.”
This debt goes back to an apartment in Camden, north London, which he left last year, as well as to legal fees. Ron, who now lives in a flat in Farnham, Surrey, is due to appear at Guildford County Court today.
An “order of sale” has already been applied for on his Surrey property, which would force him to sell up to pay the debt. But it is thought there isn’t enough equity in the flat to cover the full amount.
Russell is currently in Los Angeles, where he’s been dating new girlfriend Isabella Brewster, sister of Fast and Furious star Jordana. This is his first serious relationship since his divorce from Katy Perry last month.
