London: Funnyman Russell Brand is reportedly dating a Mexican painter named Oriela.

Brand, who recently split from wife Katy Perry, is said to have met Oriela at a yoga class. The girl has also been spotted sneaking out of his house, reported Sun online.

Oriela, 25, was seen returning home after staying the night at Brand's home earlier this week.

When asked whether she and 36-year-old Russell are dating, she replied, "I am not comfortable talking about this."

Oriela paints nudes and her website says, "My work explores feelings of guilt, sensuality, sexuality and repression from a woman's perspective."
