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 last year 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, he was photographed being driven to a new house in the city, according to the Daily Mail.

Removal vans were also spotted at the $1.5 million (£937,500) property, which boasts a swimming pool and views over L.A.

It comes as it was revealed Perry did not expect her marriage to the comedian to end.

Speaking to HollywoodLife.com, a source said: "Katy and Russell were having normal couple problems. There was no talk of divorce around Thanksgiving. It all happened right before Christmas but no one, not even Katy saw the divorce coming."

Cheeky Russell recently posted a video online in which he was seen removing his wedding ring before a tour of American universities in which he joked about sleeping with female students.

During an interview with Marc Maron, recorded for his WTF podcast just before the split, Russell fondly recalled his "blissful" womanising ways.

He said: "I'd do a gig and four or five women would come back.

"There were times when it wasn't all desperate and ugly. There were times when I was this representation of pure libertarianism and sexuality. It's so hard not to cherish them and crave them."
