Comedian Russell Brand has started dating a Mexican artist less than two months after filing for divorce from pop star Katy Perry, according to a U.S. report.
The funnyman is said to have met Oriela Medellin Amieiro during a yoga class in Los Angeles and the pair was allegedly spotted kissing after she spent the night at his Hollywood Hills apartment last week (ends19Feb12).
Amieiro, 25, has fuelled rumours of a new romance after failing to dismiss the claims.
When questioned about Brand by editors at America's Star magazine, she simply replied, "I am not comfortable talking about this."
The Brit filed legal papers to end his 14-month marriage to Perry in late December (11).
