Burlesque star Dita Von Teese has ruled out a romance with controversial British comedian Russell Brand.
The dancer gave Brand her number following a chance meeting in Los Angeles and received a call from the star soon after.
But Von Teese revealed "good female intuition" stopped her answering the phone - and she insists lothario Brand has no chance of sleeping with her.
She says, “I will not be sh***ing Russell Brand. Just because I gave him my number does not mean I'll be going on a date with him. I was the subject of one of his calls once, but I didn't answer the phone thank goodness!
“I just saw his name come up on the screen and thought: ‘I don't think I'm going to answer that right now'."
