Russell Brand Katy Perry Engaged To Be Married
He kissed a girl, and she liked it! After four months of dating, Russell Brand and Katy Perry are on the fast track to wedded bliss.
The British comic, 34, reportedly proposed to the 25-year-old pop songstress while the couple vacation in India over the holidays, an Us Weekly source spills. The extravagant trip was the comedian’s Christmas present to Katy, and the home of Bollywood provided the perfect backdrop for a memorable proposal, pals say. “She told him how much she loved Indian culture while they were eating curry in England, so he surprised her,” a source reveals.
The couple began dating in Sept. 2009.
Rumors of an engagement began to swirl last month after the British comedian was spotted ring shopping in Cartier’s West London store, the UK’s Daily Mail reported. He eventually settled on a large, square-cut diamond set in a platinum band.
Katy previously dated Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy. Russell, a reformed sex and drug addict, has a well-deserved reputation as a womanizer in his native England: he even earned The Sun’s Shagger of the Year award three years in a row. But the wild-haired funny guy has only had eyes for Katy since the two met at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
