In a match made in notorious cele-Brit-y heaven, reformed lothario Russell Brand and Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell have apparently been dating since the Olympic Closing Ceremonies, when the Spice Girls made a triumphant reunion, succeeding in nostalgic song and making us all feel old. Was that really almost two decades ago? Brought together by a mutual love of yoga, these lovebirds have reportedly developed a “spiritual connection” through joint asana practice.
According to sources, Russell and Geri are enjoying time out on the town as well as quiet meditation together; even spending time with Ginger’s daughter Bluebell. After meeting the spicy lady at the Olympics festivities, Russell was quoted as saying, “I’ve got a crush on Geri Halliwell — everything in the world is how it should be.”
Brand has always been outspoken about his devotion to yoga, citing it as an aid in coping with his addiction recovery and divorce from pop’s candy queen Katy Perry. He’s also been rumored as interested in opening up a studio. Ginger Spice is no stranger to the 8 Limb Path with two yoga DVDs (Geri Body Yoga) of her own.
If things go well, we could have a couple’s yoga DVD on the racks in time for the holiday season.
OR, Russell Brand joins the group as the 6th member, Yogi Spice, and they become the biggest pop sensation since the Teenage Dream Tour! Look out Wanderlusters. And that’s why you should care/be scared.
UPDATE: They broke up. Sad face.
