Russell Brand's Mother Improving After Car Crash

16 May 2018

Russell Brand returned to social media yesterday following a brief hiatus from the spotlight to be with his mother.

Barbara Brand was rushed to hospital after a hit-and-run in Essex on April 27th.

Russell posted a video to Instagram three days after the accident announcing that he would be cancelling the remainder of his Re:Birth tour and taking a break from his public platforms.

In a video titled 'My Mum: Thank you' posted to Instagram last night Russell thanked the NHS and fans for their "kind messages, thoughts and prayers."

He continued to say that Barbara's condition has improved thanks to her "indomitable spirit".

"What a wonderful woman, what a wonderful mother".
