Russell Brand and Geri Halliwell have bonded over their healthy lifestyles.
While the couple - who began dating after performing at the Olympics Closing Ceremony earlier this month – love doing yoga together, they also share a common goal of clean living following years of partying.
A source told RadarOnline: “Russell and Geri bonded over the fact that there’s more to life than drinking.
“Back in the 90s the pair partied for England. Their drunken escapades were well documented and there wasn’t a day where they weren’t pictured staggering out of a hip London venue. But now they like nothing more than shunning the fancy clubs and bars.
“They have cleaned up their lifestyles, both are avid Yogis and don’t touch a drop of alcohol.
“Geri has her six-year-old daughter Bluebell to consider, while Russell has been sober for almost 10 years and has risen to the top clean and knows if he did drink he would be right back where he started.”
Friends of Russell claim one of the reasons his marriage to Katy Perry failed was because she enjoys partying and he found it difficult to be surrounded by those who didn’t share his healthy lifestyle.
The source added: “That was why it was so tough for him when he was married to Katy. He would avoid any after-parties because he didn’t want to be surrounded by people who were drinking around him.
“Russell and Geri are at the same place with their lives and they want to settle and enjoy themselves.”
