Katy Perry’s awkward encounter with Russell
Katy Perry is a girl after our own heart – even when it comes to bumping into exes it seems! Recent news reveals that Katy resorted to hiding under a table at a restaurant when she spotted her former husband Russell Brand.
The ‘Firework’ singer was said to be ‘horrified’ when a romantic meal with boyfriend John Mayer at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills almost turned into a confrontation with her ex husband. She did what any of us would do, and ducked under her table to avoid him!
A source told The Sun newspaper: “As soon as Katy saw Russell she hid under the table. When he was directed to one far away she emerged.
“John threw some money on the table and they headed to the back door and their waiting car.
“Russell didn’t seem to see a thing but everyone in the restaurant saw what happened.”
Only last month Katy, 28 and Russell, 37, were spotted at the Los Angeles Lakers basketball season opening game where they were seated at opposite ends of the VIP area and reportedly didn’t speak at all.
However, just days later the quirky comedian made an effort to show he still cares for his ex-wife – who he split from in December 2011 – by buying her a gold cuff for her recent birthday as well as sending her a handmade meditation cushion.
A source explained: “Even though they’ve broken up, Russell wanted to send Katy something. He thought it would be nice to let her know he’s thinking of her.”
Russell’s mum Barbara also remembered her former daughter-in-law’s birthday, sending her special flowers and a card to her Los Angeles home.
Break ups are never easy, and reconciliations aren’t necessarily any easier, but we hope the ex couple find a way to be close again. The more homemade meditation cushions, the better!
