Russell Brand and Geri Halliwell reportedly fell into each other's arms after establishing that they shared a "spiritual connection". British comedian Russell Brand is reportedly dating Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell thanks to their shared love of yoga.
According to the UK's Sun newspaper, Brand, 37, dumped his Los Angeles socialite girlfriend Isabella Brewster for Geri after meeting her at the Olympics opening ceremony, where they both performed. A pal said, "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 had reportedly admitted to having a crush on Halliwell after the Olympics bash, perhaps leading the former Spice Girl to pursue a possible romance. Brand certainly has a history of ex-lovers, and recently divorced American pop superstar Katy Perry after a 14 month marriage. Geri split from the millionaire property developer Henry Beckwith last year.
On Tuesday (August 28, 2012), Geri emerged from her London home wearing a sleek ensemble of white blouse, black shorts and pumps. The UK's Daily Mail suggested that she may have been headed on another date with Russell Brand. Only time will tell whether anything comes of their newfound romance, though a source close to both adding, "They're just friends and have been out a few times, there's not much else to add at this stage".
