Russell Brand Thinks He Loves Katy Perry

Is notorious ladies’ man Russell Brand beginning to mellow since hooking up with Katy Perry?

The wild-haired British comic—whose previous reported conquests include former Girls Next Door girl Holly Madison—opened up to the Sun this week about his budding relationship with the “I Kissed a Girl” singer—and he actually used the “L” word.  

“I think I’m in love,” Brand told the paper from his North London home, which Perry was spotted leaving on Saturday en route to Paris Fashion Week.

Word broke that the two were an item last week, after they had returned from a romantic getaway. According to reports, Brand and Perry initially hooked up at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, with Perry sealing the deal by sending Russell a picture of her breasts.

Since then, says a pal of the funnyman’s, he’s fallen hard for the “Hot ‘N Cold” songbird:

“Russell has fancied Katy for ages and was like an excited schoolboy after they got together…He really sees her as an ideal catch and is prepared to stop seeing other girls.”

Ladies, try not to all grieve at once.
