Russell Brand - Russell Brand annoys rug seller in LA

Russell Brand infuriated a rug seller in Los Angeles by doing yoga in front of him.

The 38-year-old comedian, who practices Ancient Indian relaxation techniques, began meditating at a Persian rug stall placing himself on a 6ft by 4ft carpet piece, and was so encapsulated with the spiritual exercise that the rug seller was unable to shift the funnyman.

A source told National Enquirer magazine: ''He ignored the long winded sales pitch, plopped himself down in the lotus position on a four by six antique Persian carpet, closed his eyes, and launched into a droning chant. He kept chanting for about 20 minutes. People were staring in disbelief and the rug merchant tried several times to shake him out of his trance but there was no waking him up.''

He eventually paid £200 for the rug which he believed had spiritual energy.

The source added: ''Suddenly he snapped out of it, jumped up and said, 'I'll take it.' ''

Russell - who was previously married to Katy Perry - has been practising yoga for many years now and has met a number of girls at his Los Angeles yoga class, including Jordana Brewster's sister Isabella and Mexican artist Oriela Medellin.
