Russell Brand - Russell Brand buys 'spiritual mentor' a car

Russell Brand has bought his yoga teacher a new car.

The 'Arthur' actor and comedian is a huge fan and practitioner of the ancient Indian relaxation techniques, and wanted to express his thanks to ''spiritual mentor'' Tej Kaur Khalsa with a lavish gift.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Russell wanted to thank Tej for being his long-term yoga instructor and spiritual mentor.

''So he decided to buy her a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV, which cost him $33,000. He knew she wanted the car and was happy to stump up the cash for it.

''But Tej wasn't too pleased initially when she found out, saying he should keep his money or give it to someone who needs it more.

''She was grateful for the gesture, though.''

Russell, 37, successfully beat heroin addiction ten years ago and is now more interested in going on yoga marathons than alcohol and drug binges.

A source said of one recent session: ''Russell went on solo yoga enlightenment.

''He turned up alone at his local yoga studio at 2am, let himself in and meditated until 7am.''

The famous lothario - who was married to Katy Perry for 14 months until December last year - has also met a number of girls through his Los Angeles yoga classes, including Jordana Brewster's sister Isabella and Mexican artist Oriela Medellin.

Another source said: ''His antics are the talk of his yoga class. He was spotted with a girl after his lesson last week too. He had just left the class and was all over her in a nearby café.''
