Los Angeles, July 21 (IANS) British comedian Russell Brand was seen getting cosy with his stylist Nicola Schuller in a cafe here.
Schuller has been styling Brand for the last 10 years and was there with him during his tough times.
"Nicola's been Russell's good friend for years and was his shoulder to cry on through his divorce from Katy Perry, and splits from other women," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
"She created the style he's best known for -- his spiky back-combed hair. He has a lot to thank her for," the source added.
However, it's been just a few days since the duo got involved with each other romantically.
"But in the last few weeks things between them have got a lot more hot and heavy than just friends. The way they were kissing in public speaks for itself," the source said.
Brand, who was married to singer Katy Perry, recently expressed his wish to settle down with the right girl.
