British comic Russell Brand seduced Che Guevara's granddaughter Lydia and took her back to his New York hotel suite
Russell Brand has seduced Che Guevara's granddaughter.
The British comic - known for his womanising ways - took the legendary revolutionary's descendant Lydia to his hotel room at New York's Four Seasons hotel last week.
The star impressed the socialite with his knowledge of historical figures.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Russell is leading an amazing life in America at the moment. Girls are throwing themselves at him. He is in his element, making the most of all the attention.
"He happened to meet Lydia when he was out for dinner. They hit it off and she went back to Russell's hotel suite. He impressed her with his musings about Alexander the Great and other powerful leaders he has been reading about on his travels."
Russell recently sparked controversy after he and fellow BBC Radio 2 presenter Jonathan Ross left crude messages on British actor Andrew Sachs' phone - claiming he slept with his granddaughter.
The star resigned and has since apologised for the incident.
