Russell Brand ‘wants lover to relocate’

Russell Brand

Russell Brand is reportedly “pushing” his new girlfriend to be in Los Angeles as much as possible.

The British star has been linked to his stylist Nicola Schuller after he was spotted kissing her last month. The pair have worked together for the past decade and Russell is apparently adamant she is his perfect woman.

Nicola has a six-year-old daughter so resides mostly in the UK, which is the couple’s only issue.

“Nicola’s agreed to stay with Russell when she’s in LA for work, but right now her permanent base is in the UK because her daughter’s settled at school, and Hermione’s dad is also based in London. Russell’s head over heels for Nicola and is pushing her to spend as much time in LA as possible,” an insider told the British edition of Closer magazine.

It’s been claimed that Russell has long been attracted to Nicola, but circumstances have always meant they couldn’t be together. She is different to the other women he has dated, not least because she is completely uninterested in fame.

“Nicola and Russell have been friends for a long time, but she always had a boyfriend and is a mom and he know she wasn’t to be messed with. He always fancied her but grew to respect her too. He loves the fact that she’s not a fame-obsessed groupie. He never thought he stood a chance with her and once he told her, ‘I’d be the luckiest guy in the world if I ended up with a girl like you,’” the source explained.

Russell is divorced from singer Katy Perry and hasn’t had a serious relationship since their split in 2011.
