Yikes! It’s always awkward and even slightly embarrassing when you spot your ex dining at the same restaurant that you’re in, right? Well, that’s exactly the problem Katy Perry had when she recently spotted her ex-husband Russell Brand while she was with her new beau John Mayer at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills, Calif.
A source tells 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.”
Just 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 explains: “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 mom Barbara also remembered her former daughter-in-law’s birthday, sending her special flowers and a card to her Los Angeles home. So why in the world with Katy try at hide from Russell? Tell us, do you think this rumor is fact or fiction?
