Russell Brand has a new girlfriend.

While Spice Girl Geri Halliwell only recently confirmed she was dating the ‘Rock of Ages’ star, on Monday (03.09.12) Russell was spotted in Suffolk, South East England where he enjoyed a romantic date with a mystery lady he referred to as “my beloved Amy”.

According to The Sun newspaper, Russell and his companion arrived at the Angel Hotel in Bury St Edmunds at 8.30pm on Monday before going upstairs together.

A friend of the comic – who split from Katy Perry in December - was overheard saying the pair had known each other “very well for a long time”.

Before checking into the hotel, they enjoyed a romantic picnic together in the grounds of Bury’s cathedral and also went shopping at a store promoting “crystal energy healing”.

However, Geri may not be too surprised by this latest development as it has been claimed the pair agreed to a “cooling off period” because Russell didn’t want to get serious.

A source said: "Geri was smitten but things have petered out a tad.

"He isn't ready to settle down so soon after coming out of marriage, whereas Geri is probably more ready to have a relationship.

"She wants a [new home] and spent Saturday dragging Russell around properties near Devon. It probably seemed a little much.

"Russell is a huge flirt and Geri won't stand for any nonsense – her friends are telling her not to get serious about him."
