Everyone copes with breakups in different ways. While some choose to create hardcore music videos that turn them into an empowered marine, others prefer to surround themselves by a bevy of beautiful women. Unsurprisingly, Russell Brand falls into the latter category.
Less than three months after filing for a divorce from Katy Perry, the actor has already been spotted with a new girlfriend—a model, no less. Her name is Nikolett Barbabas, and according to Life & Style, she had nothing but nice things to say about her new leading man.
“He’s amazing, so funny; he’s beautiful,” Barbabas told the magazine during Brand’s stand up show at Largo in LA on March 22. “I like being with him; he’s amazing, so amazing. He’s a good person.”
In recent weeks, the pair have been spotted together non stop, even taking a romantic bike ride in New Orleans. However, Brand doesn’t seem ready to delve into a strictly monogamous relationship quite yet, having been spotted flirting with several pretty brunettes after the show. But Barbabas seems perfectly content with the way things are.
“He was really flirty, but even in the sea of women, Nikolett just hung back and let him do his thing,” an eyewitness reported. “He even kissed one pretty brunette quickly on the lips and told her she was gorgeous!”
But the English star is aware of his infidelity-stricken past and has previously admitted that it’s the reason most of his relationships don’t work out. “I haven’t always treated women well — more than one relationship has collapsed because of my infidelity — but to this day I feel a fierce warmth for women who have the same disregard for the social conventions of sexual protocol as I do.”
Before his relationship with Barbabas began, Brand had been romantically linked to artist Oriela Medellin. Do you think this one will last?
