According to several sources speaking to the press, actor Russell Brand and Spice Girl Geri Halliwell are definitely a couple. The two reconnected at the Olympics game and since then they have been spending a lot of time together. Is Russell Geri’s Mr. Right?
Back in July, several eye witnesses could have sworn that Russell Brand is in love with talent agent Isabella Brewster, actress Jordana Brewster’s younger sister. But it seems that the hot brunette didn’t spice up his life enough to keep him interested.
At the Olympics, the comic, who impersonated famous character Willy Wonka, had the opportunity to rebound with the Spice Girls, and with one of them in particular. “I’ve got Spice Girls mania all over again now, it’s like going back to 1996”, he said at the time. “I’ve got a massive crush on Geri Halliwell, too, so everything in the world was as it should be.”
And apparently, his answer was not part of a comic act. He is now dating Geri. An eye witness speaking to UK’s The Sun said he saw Brand and Halliwell together and that Geri’s daughter, Bluebell, was with them. “I thought it was the most random thing ever to see Russell Brand of all people in a place like that”, said the eye witness of the celeb couple touring the Hampton Court Palace over the weekend. “My wife pointed out he was with a Spice Girl”, he added, explaining that their behavior – “holding hands and chatting” – betrayed their romantic relationship. “It was 100 percent obvious they were a couple.”
And just days after the Olympic’s closing ceremony British screenwriter Stuart Hazeldine wrote on his twitter page: “Just jogged past a very tall Russell Brand and a very short Geri Halliwell.”
A close friend of Russell’s told The Sun: “Things are getting very serious between them — they’re a proper couple now” that they have gotten to know each other better during the Olympics. “He is spending so much more time in London just to be with her.”
