London: Russell Brand is apparently taking driving lessons to be able to drive independently without new wife Katy Perry.

The 35-year-old comedian is fed up of asking Katy to chauffeur him around Los Angeles.

"He wants to be an independent husband. He is taking lessons daily," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

An onlooker who saw Brand driving said: "A homeless man was begging by a stop light and Russell gave him 20 dollars. He then jokingly told the man to wait in the same spot the next day!"
