Russell Brand’s new girlfriend revealed

It was always going to be a tough job stepping into Katy Perry's well-heeled (and multi-coloured) shoes, but it appears Russell Brand has found a lady who can do just that, in a manner of speaking.

Just as Russell and Katy's divorce was finalised (Californian law requires a couple wait six months from filing divorce until it is legitimate - Russ filed stating 'irreconcilable differences' at the end of 2011), the British comic stepped out with a new woman and she has since been identified as Isabella Brewster.

While Katy has been larking about with her new beau Robert Ackroyd, the tall and tattooed guitarist in Florence + The Machine, Russell has kept his love life private.

There were rumours of a few women here and there but it seems he's serious about Isabella and he chose the official end of his marriage to the Part Of Me singer as the moment to 'reveal' her, so to speak.

We see what you did there, Russell.

According to RadarOnline Russell, who became a single man again on Monday 16 July, has been dating Isabella, the younger sister of Dallas and Fast & Furious actress Jordana Brewster.

"Isabella and Russell have a lot in common," a source told Radar.

"They are both in recovery and totally into yoga, so they have definitely found common ground. They are really enjoying spending time together.

"Isabella (above, right) really likes Russell and loves dating famous people, but she knows that he is a ladies man so she is trying to play it cool."

Isabella might not be as well-known as her sister, but she's no rookie to the showbiz scene. The pretty brunette, who recently quit her job as a talent agent, has previously dated the likes of Bradley Cooper and Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia.

The 'casual' couple were most recently spotted at a farmer's market in LA and an onlooker claimed they looked very close indeed.

Isabella, who has fewer than 2,000 followers on her Twitter page (compared to Russell's massive 5 million bounty) recently tweeted that she was at the filming of Russell's new TV show: "Good times at BRAND X taping with @JessaPlum @jimhecht @ColetteCrazy ‪#BrandX‬."

Call us nosey, but we can't wait to see more of this brand new couple!

Katy and Russell's divorce: the details

    Katy and Russell - officially divorced

    Katy and Russell started dating in mid-2009 and tied the knot just a year later in a lavish week-long ceremony in India. However, just 14 months later at the end of 2011 Russell filed for divorce.
  • California law states a couple must see it out for a mandatory six months until the divorce is finalised, so while they've been separate since the end of 2011, they has still been Mr and Mrs.
  • Russell reportedly walked away from his share of the $44m fortune earned by the Katy during their time together. According to TMZ, they didn't have a pre-nup, which meant they were each entitled to 50% of that.

Give him a few years and he'll come out of the closet and admit he is gay (but only if his career flags suddenly)

Why must we constantly be updated about somebody's divorce? You'd think that should be something kept private. What's worse is that people actually make it their business! Sick of this obsession with celebrity culture.
I honestly do not see what women see in this pleb of a man. His eyes are way to shifty for my liking. Must be his money they are after. Me, i'd rather be skint. x
