TELLY star Russell Brand dropped plans to give a rock band a big break — after the singer nicked his GARDEN GNOME.
Medusa’s Julian Molinero, 23, said: "We met him at a pub and he promised to help us get a record deal. We were so happy we agreed to play a gig at his house in Islington.
"But we got wasted. Then the bass player PEED on one of his statues.
"Russell started to lecture us on how much it cost and kicked us out — so I stole his gnome." A pal of Brand said: "He doesn’t like his stuff being stolen."
