Katy Perry plans Russell surprise
Katy Perry is buying Russell Brand a luxury car.
The 'I Kissed a Girl' singer has decided to splash out on the lilac Bentley Brooklands - which is based on the same one The Who's late drummer Keith Moon used to have - as a surprise Valentine's Day (14.02.10) gift for her British fiance.
A source said: "Katy really thought about this. She's been talking to a specialist dealership in Newport Beach, California, for weeks now, and it's all starting to come together.
"Originally she was planning to buy him an Aston Martin but changed her mind when he spotted an 007 number plate in West Hollywood. She said James Bond wannabes were tasteless.
"So she asked his friends if he'd like a Bentley and they all said yes."
However, 34-year-old Russell knows nothing about the plan and thinks they will not be buying gifts for each other.
The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: "Katy has tricked him into thinking they're not bothering with presents."
This is not the first time the couple - who have been dating since September 2009 - have surprised one another.
Katy was stunned when Russell proposed to her on New Year's Eve (31.12.09) during a meticulously-planned romantic evening during their holiday to India.
A source at the luxurious Taj Rambagh palace hotel, where the couple were staying, explained: "He had organised a special dining experience. We set a table in a garden with candles everywhere. They arrived in a horse and carriage with a glass of champagne and we served them dinner.
"At midnight they enjoyed fireworks while sitting on an elephant, which Mr. Brand specially requested. Then they were taken to the Mughal Garden - which was decorated by flowers and candlelight."Posted on 4 Feb 2010 10:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
