reports that the 37-year-old British comic, whose divorce from Katy Perry was finalized last month, is now dating Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell. "She is making it seem like it wasn't serious with John, but she is hurt," a Perry source revealed.
PHOTOS: Russell and Katy's zany marriage Indeed, Brand and Halliwell, 40, were recently photographed on a date to Hampton Court Palace in London with Bluebell, Halliwell's 6-year-old daughter from a previous relationship — and the Brand X star posed for a Twi Pic with Halliwell and her Spice Girls bandmates backstage at the Closing Ceremonies for the London Olympics Aug. PHOTOS: Hottest Brits ever "Look at Me" singer Halliwell recently alluded to a new relationship in an interview with British mag "I'm not going into details," she said, giggling.
"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 ...
Although Russell Brand and Geri Halliwell have been spotted enjoying a weekend in London together, it doesn't mean that they are dating. News that the former husband of Katy Perry and the Ginger Spice are just friends and have been out a few times.
The British funnyman and the Spice Girls star reportedly held hands when caught on camera at Hampton Court Palace with her six-year-old daughter Bluebell Madonna.
"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.
My mom went through 2 marriages/4 kids, he went through 1 marriage/5 kids before they reconnected and got married. My dad told me recently that if he and my mom ever got divorced, he would probably end up with someone he grew up with.The two previously dated in 20 and are also longtime friends.Brand was previously married to actress Teresa Palmer and pop star Katy Perry.He said that there is a real comfort in going back to your roots, especially when you're 60/70 - knowing that you probably were brought up the same way/have the same values, etc...a known commodity vs trying to date someone totally new.
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’ve exactly the same sense of humour and are serious about clean living." It sounds like Russ is doing this right.
