Russell Brand, who you may know as a British comedian, scene stealer from Forgetting Sarah Marshall and/or host of the 2008 VMAs, has recruited a special someone in his life.
Brand is currently seeing a spiritual guru, who he hopes is able to guide him on his spiritual quest.
The former heroin addict (he says he was sniffing the dust for more than 11 years) holds regular meetings with Radhanath Swami, reportedly a leading member of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
The comedian says that the guru will also help him stay grounded (and not get too heavily into the booze and women that I'm sure is tempting) in light of all the success he's had since becoming sober in 2003.
Brand says, "He's (Swami has) got the answer. I'm a spiritual gent and increasingly that's the level I want to vibrate on, were it not for my crazed lust for sex and glamour."
