Comedian Russell Brand has fuelled reports he's ready to settle down with girlfriend Katy Perry after splashing out $3.52 million (£2.2 million) on a new Los Angeles lovenest.
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star is alleged to have proposed to Perry last week (ends25Dec09) after spending the run-up to the Christmas holiday together in his native Britain.
The couple spent Christmas Day (25Dec09) oceans apart as the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker jetted back home to L.A. to celebrate the festive season with her family, while Brand remained in London.
But the funnyman appears to be making moves to relocate to California permanently - he's placed his home in north London on the market for $4 million (£2.5 million) and purchased a 1920s-style house on the West Coast.
The lavish four-storey home boasts four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a powder room and an outdoor swimming pool.
