Russell Brand takes new girlfriend shopping for gems

London: Russell Brand was seen stepping out with girlfriend Oriela Medellin Amieiro to LA store Crystalarium, which offers a selection of natural crystal jewellery.

Despite the romantic gesture, the British comedian didn’t bother to dress up for the occasion.

He went for comfort over style, teaming a comfortable cardigan with white shorts and leg warmers.

The Mexican artist Amieiro too opted for a similar loose-fitting black top and trousers.

She must be used to it by now, with the pair reported to have first met at a yoga class earlier this year.

Brand, 36, split from former wife Katy Perry last December after just 14 months together.

But his new love recently refused to confirm whether she and Brand are now an item.

“I am not comfortable talking about this,” the Sun quoted her as saying.

The 25-year-old beauty is known for her erotic paintings, which deal with sensuality and sex.
