Russell Brand has admitted to having a secret affair with Kate Moss.
Brand reveals in his upcoming autobiography, Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal, that he met Moss and her pal Sadie Frost at a gig at the beginning of his career in 2006; but that a relationship would never have worked – because he was obsessed with the supermodel.
“I had a mad infatuation with her. I didn’t feel all cool. It didn’t feel like a conquest, it felt like a fall down a well. I was like a 12-year-old,” he wrote.
“When I saw she was there (at the gig) I felt totally overwhelmed because she is obviously incredibly beautiful and she is Kate Moss… She sort of looked at me and smiled, then she sent me a text message a bit later, saying, ‘Do you wanna meet up?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll come round.’ I did go round… it was mad that was.”
He adds, “I f**ked that up because I really, really liked her. It was never going to go anywhere but it was mad. I just thought she was remarkable.”
Meanwhile, Brand was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport over weekend, after an alleged scuffle with paparazzi.
TMZ reports that Brand reportedly became agitated with members of the paparazzi who took snaps of him and Katy Perry. Brand is alleged to have pushed at least one photographer before striking several others.
Brand was placed in police custody for misdemeanour simple battery and released on US$20,000 (NZ$27,555) bail.
