Russell Brand Dumps Girlfriend, Now Dating Geri Halliwell

28 August 2012

While Katy Perry’s love life may be down in the dumps, her ex-husband Russell Brands seems to be spicing up his by dating his Spice Girl’s crush.

According to The Sun, Brand, 37, has broken up with his girlfriend Isabella Brewster (she’s sister to Dallas star Jordanna Brewster), and has already moved on to ‘Ginger Spice,’ Geri Halliwell, 40, and the pair is reportedly in a “very serious” romance.

The comic-turned-actor has been vocal about his crush on the petite ginger.

"I’ve got Spice Girls mania all over again,” said Brand to the Daily Star after the closing ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics where the former all-girl group performed. “I’ve got a massive crush on Geri Halliwell too, so everything in the world was as it should be."

And apparently, Brand wasn’t the only one who felt sparks after spending time as the Olympics closed, because it seems as if he’s living out his fantasy weeks later with the hot-mama-of-one.

“Things are getting very serious between them — they’re a proper couple now,” a source tells the paper. “They had met several times in the past, but really got to know each other during the Olympics. People thought Russell was joking at the time, when he said he had a crush on Geri all over again, but it was true.”

Brand, who jumps back and forth across the pond is reportedly “spending so much more time in London just to be with her."

The actor already took Halliwell and her daughter, Bluebell Madonna, 6, on a tour of Hamptom Court Palace this weekend as he continues to swoon Halliwell.

“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,” an onlooker at the historical London site said.

“They seemed like they were having a really great time, holding hands and chatting — it was 100 percent obvious they were a couple."

According to the source, the new couple "just clicked — they have so much in common."
