Has she moved on from Russell Brand with another Brit?

He’s just left rehab and she’s a party girl who likes a drink or two.

But despite their differences, Now can reveal newly single Katy Perry‘s getting close to Hollywood star Gerard Butler.

While it’s still early days, friends say there are definitely Fireworks between the two.

‘It was actually on her advice that he went to rehab.’

Sources say Scot Gerard, 42, and Katy, 27, went for a couple of low-key dinners last month before he checked into the Betty Ford Center to tackle his addiction to painkillers.
