Brand moves into new home

British funnyman Russell Brand has moved into a new home in Los Angeles just weeks after splitting from Katy Perry.

The comedian filed for divorce from his pop star wife on 30 December (11) and moving vans were subsequently spotted at the couple's marital home in the Hollywood Hills.

Brand has now flown back to the U.S. for the first time since the break-up, and on Friday (13Jan12), he was photographed being driven to a new house in the city, according to Dailymail.co.uk.

Removal vans were also spotted at the $1.5 million property, which boasts a swimming pool and views over L.A.
