Hollywood news has just learned that RUSSELL BRAND is now dating Ginger Spice GERI HALLIWELL!
Didn’t see that one coming, did you?
Following on the heels of his ex-wife Katy Perry’s split from her one-month boyfriend John Mayer, Russell Brand, who was last reported to be dating Jordana Brewster‘s younger sis Isabella, appears to have found love with the Spice Girls’ Geri Halliwell.
After hitting it off at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony rehearsals, where they both performed, Russell and Geri have been spotted out on a string of dates in London.
A source close to Brand tells The Sun:
“Things are getting very serious between them — they’re a proper couple now. They had met several times in the past, but really got to know each other during the Olympics.
The insider continues:
“People thought Russell was joking at the time, when he said he had a crush on Geri all over again, but it was true. They just clicked — they have so much in common… He is spending so much more time in London just to be with her.”
The new couple was recently spotted enjoying a private tour of Hampton Court Palace with Geri’s 6-year-old daughter, Bluebell Madonna. An eyewitness says of their date:
“I thought it was the most random thing ever to see Russell Brand of all people in a place like that — until my wife pointed out he was with a Spice Girl. They seemed like they were having a really great time, holding hands and chatting — it was 100 per cent obvious they were a couple.”
The eyewitness adds:
“Geri was holding his hand the same way I hold my wife’s. It was so cute.”
So what happened to Isabella? A friend of the actor explains:
“He ended his relationship with [her], and is now dating Geri properly.”
Do you think Russell and Geri make a cute couple?
