Russell Brand writes about his Kate Moss courtship

Russell Brand Russell Brand belongs to a California Gurl now, but once upon a time the comedian was enamored with British supermodel Kate Moss.

He opens up about the Moss days in his new book, "Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal," a sequel to his successful first memoir, "My Booky Wook."

"I had a mad infatuation with her. I didn't feel all cool. It didn't feel like a conquest, it felt like I fell down a well," he said, according to the UK Sun.

Brand recalls one of their first encounters years ago at a concert the blond attended with Jude Law ex Sadie Frost.

"I'd only been famous for about half an hour. Then she sort of looked at me and smiled, then she sent me a text message a bit later, saying, 'Do you wanna meet up?'"

Their relationship ensued among paparazzi and personal assistants. Now that he's engaged to pop star Katy Perry, Brand's only concern is Moss' feelings over being written about.

"What I tried to do is some sort of portrait of a contemporary goddess. I hope it [wasn't] too personal because all I wanted to render was what it was like to be in the glow of such a figure, for a brief period. That's all I was trying to get across."

We dare say she likely won't mind.
