Russell Brand enjoyed probably the most low-key date of his life when he spent three hours at Geri Halliwell's London home this week. The British comedian was snapped arriving at Geri's with a bag of books and a Dvd about playwright Alan Bennett, reports the UK's Metro newspaper.
Reports emerged this week that the friends had begun dating after spending time with each other at the Olympics closing ceremony. It is even thought that he dumped new girlfriend Isabella Brewster in order to pursue the Spice Girl. Brand - who was also clutching Talking Heads: The Complete Collection on Dvd - arrived at Geri's house and was greeted by a member of her personal security team. Several hours later, he emerged and briefly spoke with Halliwell at the door before leaving. Yesterday, a source revealed the UK's Sun newspaper, "Geri has said they have a spiritual connection through yoga and they practise asana together.Russell is known for action between the sheets but he is actually very good at just sitting still in silence. It is something that has acted as a bond for he and Geri as their relationship blossoms".
Russell has been linked to a string of women since splitting from wife Katy Perry last year. The pair divorced in July 2012, with Brand choosing not to go after half of the superstar singer's earnings, despite being entitled to under Californian law.
