PIC: Russell Brand Visits Geri Halliwell at Home
When two become one?
On Wednesday, Russell Brand was photographed paying a visit to the London home of Geri Halliwell -- a.k.a. Ginger Spice, with whom the British comic, 37, was romantically linked earlier this week.
The former Spice Girl and single mom, 40, bonded backstage with Brand at the Closing Ceremony for the London Olympics -- and the twosome were subsequently photographed out together at Hampton Court Palace with Bluebell, the singer's 6-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
"Russell and Geri are just friends and have been out a few times of late," one insider tells Us Weekly. "A few media are prematurely reporting that they are in a serious relationship, [but it's] a little early for all that type of speculation."
Adds a second source: "They're testing the waters. It's very early days."
Halliwell herself recently played coy about a new relationship in an interview with British mag Hello! "I'm not going into details," she said, giggling. "Right now there's nothing serious. I was a late starter on the romantic front. I didn't start dating until I was in my 30s . . . I quite like having somebody to cuddle. I like that intimacy, it would be wonderful."
For his part, the Brand X star certainly is familiar with flamboyant pop singers: He and Katy Perry finalized their divorce last month. He filed to end their marriage in late December after just 14 months of marriage.
