Russell Brand Dating Jemima Khan? Comedian Steps Out With New Lady

Looks like Russell Brand has moved on from ex-wife Katy Perry in a big way: The notoriously outspoken comedian was pictured walking arm-in-arm with heiress and human-rights advocate Jemima Khan. Yep, that's the same Jemima Khan who dated Hugh Grant from 2005 to 2007, and married politician Imran Khan in 1995.

So back to the present: Brand, 38, and Khan, 39, were snapped going for a stroll in the East Village in New York Sunday (Sept. 15). It is the first time the pair have been photographed publicly together, though it appears the acquaintance is more than casual.

Last week, Brand suggested he was smitten by a new woman in an op-ed for The Guardian, writing: "Now, I'm not typically immune to the allure of objectified women, but I am presently beleaguered by a nerdish, whirling dervish, and am eschewing all others."
