British comedian Russell Brand is reportedly dating singer Geri Halliwell.
Brand, 37, and Halliwell, 40, got to know each other during the London Olympics closing ceremony. Since then they have become serious about each other, thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
"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," the source said.
"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 just clicked. They have so much in common," the source added.
Geri is reporedly a fan of Russell’s humour and they’ve been having a lot of fun together and has apparently even introduced the heartthrob to her six-year-old daughter Bluebell.
Brand got divorced from singer Katy Perry in July. After that he dated Isabella Brewster briefly after meeting her in a yoga class and now he has left her for the Spice Girl.
Brand's massive crush on Geri
Russell Brand has revealed that he has a huge crush on Geri Halliwell after performing with her at the Olympic Closing Ceremony.
The infamous ladies man admits that he was deep in Spice nostalgia ever since he saw the band on top of taxis singing hits Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life.
“I've got Spice Girls mania all over again now,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
“It's like going back to 1996. ‘I've got a massive crush on Geri Halliwell too, so everything in the world was as it should be,” he added.
A source told the publication that the pair have been texting and meeting up since they both had starring roles in the closing ceremony for the Games.
The funnyman has had a soft spot for the iconic pop star since her 90s heyday and is wasting no time in pursuing her.
