You might wanna turn away, Katy Perry...

Multiple sources confirm that the blue-haired singer's ex-husband has started up a relationship with Isabella Brewster, as the sister of actress Jordana was spotted strolling through West Hollywood with Russell Brand over the weekend.

"It's been going on for a few weeks," an insider tells Us Weekly of Brand and Brewster, who has also dated Bradley Cooper and Milo Ventimiglia. "He really likes her."

The actor/comedian recently split from Perry after 14 months of marriage, with the singer admitting it was difficult for the pair to maintain their initial romance.

She's been linked to musician Robert Ackroyd of Florence + the Machine, but it appears as if Brand's fling with Brewster may be a bit more serious.

"She's cute," added the tabloid source. "She is all over him and Russell loves it."

Russell Brand's new TV show, Brand X, isn't getting a whole lot of support. At least not from funny graffiti artists around the greater L.A. area.

Check out this photo captured by TMZ of a billboard for it ...

Katy's 3D movie isn't even out yet (check out the Katy Perry: Part of Me trailer), but some clever, adventurous vandal clearly isn't a fan of Russell's new show.

The billboard seen above is located on L.A.'s Sunset Blvd. Hey, if you're going to deface someone else's property, you might as well be somewhat creative.

FYI, you can check out Russell's Brand X tonight on FX after Charlie Sheen's much talked-about new show Anger Management and Louis CK's Louie.

Sometimes it just doesn't work out.

That's the bottom line when it comes to Katy Perry's marriage to Russell Brand, she says in her new documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, which chronicles the many highs and lows in Katy's personal life as well as her stage persona.

"Being in love is a dream, but the reality is not like the movies. There's a lot more compromise and sacrifice," says Perry, and she knows from experience.

Prior to their split, Perry informed her management that the longest she would go without seeing Brand was two weeks; it didn't always turn out that way.

At one point, a frustrated Perry learned she'd go 18 days without him. "Where are my relationship days?" she asked, looking at her jam-packed schedule.

The constant traveling took its tool even when she had them. "She'll fly to wherever Russell is," a team member said. "She's running herself ragged."

One scene from the film shows Katy Perry without makeup on an airplane, looking into camera and admitting: "I'm trying to keep my marriage alive."

After Brand filed for divorce in December, Perry was visibly and understandably upset. "The truth is I'm a romantic and I believed in the fairy tale."

"I did everything I could but it still failed," the "Wide Awake" singer said. "The dream of being in love is a lot different than the reality of making it work."

Russell Brand is fairly zen about his divorce from Katy Perry.

In an interview with the Lorraine show on the UK's ITV1 while doing publicity rounds for Rock of Ages, the British funnyman offered up a rather sanguine view.

"Well, it did work out in a way because you are married for some time, and that's really good, and then you're not married, and that's really good," he said.

Right??!? Profound yet simple. Best spin on a divorce ever!

The 37-year-old Brand and the 27-year-old Perry swapped vows in October 2010 in a lavish ceremony in India only to see their marriage unravel in 14 months.

While divorce is never easy, he's come to terms with it.

"You just have to have acceptance of things. She is a person I love, but now this is a new time. I suppose divorce is difficult, isn't it, because of the admin! There's a lot of admin!"

Seriously. On a different level of love, Brand gushed over ... Alec Baldwin.

"He's like sort of a big powerful, hairy, sexy uncle," he said of his Rock of Ages co-star. "Which in the wrong circumstances could be a terrible thing."

"But in the circumstances that I found myself in, it was really lovely. He's really friendly, and he's really clever, and really sweet and gave me wonderful advice."

Random, hilarious bromance alert?

At the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday evening, host Russell Brand kicked off the event with a zany monologue in which he mocked Justin Bieber, Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, Michael Fassbender's penis, Katy Perry and himself.

After giving Bieber props for his alleged scuffle with a photographer, Brand said, "Justin Bieber is so pretty that even if he was attacking me, I'd do a little orgasm."

It only got zanier from there.

"The last time I hosted I did marry someone who was there, so I'm keeping my eyes open for a new wife tonight," Brand said, before shouting, "Fassbender!"

That would be Michael Fassbender, who was there to represent Prometheus.

Brand also goofed on Charlie Sheen, who was there for reasons unknown, saying he'd stashed alcohol and some cocaine under the actor's seat. You know, just in case.

Perhaps most amusingly, Brand thanked Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for taking the pressure off of him - in terms of short-lived marriages and humiliating MTV award moments, respectively - and said he hopes they make a sex tape together.

Hopefully Kanye learns from his predecessor and stays sober during it, though, because Ray J "just looked a little too pleased with himself" while nailing KK.

Brand would also shot out "Twilight!" and "Hunger Games!" intermittently and for no apparent reason. What do you think of Russell's monologue? Grade it below:

Justin Bieber's alleged attack on a member of the paparazzi - who accuses him of roughing him up and leaving him in need of medical attention - is clearly BS.

Can you see Justin Bieber roughing someone up? Seriously?

That's beside the point, though. Whatever happened, Biebs' altercation is just the latest in a long string of tense run-ins between stars and the media who cover the celebrity gossip we crave. Here's a look back at seven of the most memorable:

1. Britney Spears: After a downward spiral that saw her shave her head, file for divorce and deliver her second child in the span of a year, Spears suffered a meltdown in February 2007 that saw her violently attack a paparazzo's car with an umbrella:

2. Russell Brand: Katy Perry's ex recently gave a whole new meaning to the term "dropped call" as he grabbed a photographer's iPhone and flung it through a nearby window. Brand later turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

3. Kanye West: The rapper racked up three misdemeanor charges in 2008 after he was arrested for allegedly wrestling with a photographer at LAX, grabbing his camera and smashing it on the floor. The charges were eventually dropped.

Russell Brand is not really trying to win back Katy Perry, but that doesn't stop celeb gossip tabloids from having a field day with the former couple.

By all accounts, they were in love, but got married too quickly and were just too different to make it work, but harbor no ill will toward each other.

That's just not sufficient for OK! Magazine though.

OK! Cover

According to this breaking, almost certainly bogus tabloid report:

  • Russell has been bombarding her with phone calls and texts
  • He's flat out begging her to take him back after they split
  • She's lonely while her new man is on tour in Australia

Never mind that Katy broke up with Robert Ackroyd already, or that Russell admitted on Ellen that it wasn't mean to be (even if he loves her as a person).

Amazingly, this may not be the most ridiculous thing in the issue! OK! also claims that Kanye is proposing to Kim. No way those two are even really dating!

Russell Brand and Katy Perry might as well be teaching Celebrity Breakups 101.

Proving that a split doesn't have to be bitter or contentious just because it's painful, the comedian opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about his recent divorce and had only positive things to say about former wife Katy Perry.

"I still love her as a human being," he said. "But, sometimes when you're in a relationship I suppose it doesn't work out, does it? You can't absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life. But that doesn't mean I regret it or anything."

"Sometimes things are just different and then you move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other."

"I was very happy to be married with her," Brand continued. "She's such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her."

Perry has since rebounded with Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, with whom she was spotted packing on the PDA at Coachella.

Still, it's time to move on. Last week, Brand finally unfollowed her on Twitter.

Also on Ellen, Brand weighed in on various newsworthy items of the day, including the Time Magazine breastfeeding cover. You gotta watch.

The man, the myth, the legendarily zany Russell Brand will host the MTV Movie Awards on June 3, the cable network officially confirmed this week.

The comedian, who has hosted the MTV VMAs twice, will front the ceremony for the first time at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif.

Brand said, "This MTV Movie Awards will be more impressive than The Avengers and you won't have to wait an hour for someone to Hulk out."

Russell Brand Testifies

MTV President Stephen Friedman also said of the 36-year old's involvement:

"With his amazing ability to span the full spectrum of comedy from the most high to low-brow, Russell's smart, unpredictable wit uniquely connects to our audience."

"His rock-n-roll sensibility and fearlessness give us the perfect partner with whom to take a leap of faith with as we meld the worlds of movies and music on one very special night."

Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Mila Kunis will all present at the bash. Check out our list of 2012 MTV Movie Award nominations to see who's up for the golden popcorns.

Also, you gotta see Russell destroy a heckler at his recent stand-up gig.

Russell Brand absolutely shut it down during his stand-up show in Atlantic City, N.J., just annihilating a heckler who had been taunting him about Katy Perry.

The heckler had been yelling Perry-related comments at the Borgata on Saturday, most of which went ignored by Russell, who split with Katy last winter.

But it was his yelling "God save the queen!" during a bit about the British royal family that sent the zany comic into full-scale verbal attack mode:

"What, mate?" Russell tentatively began. "I want to see what this person looks like, turn the lights on for me because I really want to achieve some sort of confirmation. Let's have a look... Come here, let's see you."

The audience was all too happy to direct Brand.

"Let's see how your mental illness looks in the daylight," Russell said, ushering the man forward. "It's you, is it? Oh, dear. I was hoping that your personality was just a result of physical beauty. But then I saw you."
