Russell Brand Spent a Night With Kate Moss

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Hook-ups, Rumors,

Russell Brand's second autobiographyFirst Courtney Love—now Russell Brand is admitting that he once spent the night with Kate Moss.

The British comedian took the supermodel back to his house in 2006 after being introduced to her by their mutual friend Sadie Frost. Russell, 35, reveals in his new book My Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal:

“When we arrive at Sadie’s house it is decided that Matt Morgan, co-presenter of my radio show, should walk into the house, so there is no photo of me and her together. “This gives me hope that we do have something to hide, but also makes me jealous of Matt as he gets to walk up the driveway with her. Within the beautiful house we flirt for a while, then under some mutual pretence of looking at hung photographs of Sadie’s deplorably gorgeous children we wander off. We are alone. Eventually there is no more universe between our lips and so we kiss.  And yes, on one level I’m enjoying the kiss, but my mind is screaming, screeching, body-popping, lambada-ing, every-dance-craze-there’s-ever-been-ing. I get on with the kiss, and I think it’s a good kiss, but of course all this analysis going on simultaneously. “I’ve got to get her out the house. Ludicrously I say to her, ‘Do you want to come back to mine ?’”

When Kate agreed to go back to his London home with him, Russell admits it was one of the most exciting moments of his life, but also one of the most nerve-wracking.

John and Cynthia - who had a son Julian together - divorced in 1968, one year before his marriage to Yoko, the mother of his son Sean.
