    Russell Brand Steps Out With Hugh Grant's Ex Jemima Khan, Says He's "Eschewing All Others"

    So this is the lady who has swept Russell Brand off his feet!

    On Friday, Sept. 13, Katy Perry's ex wrote a Guardian op-ed proclaiming that he was "presently beleaguered by a nerdish, whirling dervish," adding that he was "eschewing all others" for this woman. Well just two days later, the 38-year-old funnyman stepped out in NYC arm-in-arm with Hugh Grant's ex Jemima Khan.

    The point of Russell's verbose Guardian piece was to explain just why he made a gaffe at the British GQ Men of the Year Awards about Hugo Boss outfitting the Nazi party (long story short: He thought the whole night was a joke). But he also revealed that while he usually isn't "immune to the allure of objectified women," he was that evening, thanks to a certain lady. He even quoted a friend sentimentally, saying, "Being in love is like discovering a concealed ballroom in a house you've long inhabited."

    Well, Khan, 39, certainly seems like the object of Brand's affection, based on body language alone. The New Statesman editor was married to a Pakistani cricketer turned politician Imran Khan from 1995 to 2004, and she dated Grant from to 2005 to 2007.
