Rumors have persisted regarding a budding romance between Russell Brand and Geri Halliwell, aka “Ginger Spice,” after a bendy yoga-fueled hookup in recent weeks. Though their romance was still in its budding phase a few days back when Halliwell gave an interview to the London Sun, fresh reports are saying that the relationship may have run its course.
“It’s been a whirlwind,” said Halliwell of her relationship with Brand. “All I want is to be in a loving relationship .… Is he my ideal man? I’m choosy. I want someone who’s trustworthy, sweet and kind.” We can argue back and forth all day whether or Brand, 37, is any of those things, but, according to Halliwell, he’s also “way too intense” and his intellect is too “exhausting,” an insider told the Mirror.
“Things are already cooling off,” says the source. “I don’t think she really fancies him. She’s just enjoying the attention. It will be yoga, sex and fizz, but it won’t last the distance.”
Brand does have a reputation as a Lothario. He was recently spotted at a hotel in London with a brunette he reportedly calls his “beloved Amy,” whom he has known “very well for a long time,” but it didn’t seem to strictly be a friendship as he was photographed with his hand on her rear. So perhaps Brand doesn’t see his tryst with Halliwell as much more than just that either.
In any case, Halliwell doesn’t seem too broken up about the split.
“He’s off back to L.A. soon,” her friend told the Mirror, “and she’s not planning on going with him.”
