Yoga is good for flexibility, muscle tone -- and apparently, finding a rebound girlfriend. Two weeks after reaching a divorce settlement with Katy Perry, Russell Brand is being linked to his yoga classmate Oriela Medellin.
Medellin, 25, is a Mexican-born painter, model and photographer who describes herself on her website as a "modern day gypsy." She was first linked to Brand on Feb. 12, when she was spotted driving home with him from the Largo Club in Los Angeles, then leaving his house the next morning in the same outfit.
At the time, she was identified by the press as a "mystery woman." But just two days earlier, Medellin had sent Brand this flirty message on Twitter: "@rustyrockets nice to see you at yoga...! glad to know that u r in the spirit journey and that translates into your work bravo!"
The pair has since been spotted together around Hollywood, including at the hot spot Bar Marmont this past Saturday.
According to People, Medellin, the daughter of a Puerto Rican fashion designer, speaks four languages and has a fondness for vegan food. Since Brand is a vegetarian world-traveler himself (with a known fondness for models), we're guessing she's right up his alley. And if her Twitter is any indication, she's smitten with him as well; on Valentine's Day, two days after her sleepover at Brand's house, she tweeted the following Kerouac quote: "The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved..."
Hmm... wonder who that could describe?
