Katy Perry Hides Under Table To Avoid Russell Brand In LA Restaurant?

The 'Part Of Me' star is said to have avoided an awkward reunion with her comedian ex-husband this week.

Katy Perry reportedly went to great lengths to avoid speaking with ex-husband Russell Brand when the two found themselves in the same Los Angeles restaurant this week.

The 'Wide Awake' singer is said to have spotted Russell entering the Polo Lounge restaurant in Beverly Hills, where she was dinned out with rumoured new beau John Mayer, and opted to hide under her table to avoid an awkward encounter.

"As soon as Katy saw Russell she hit under the table," a source revealed to The Sun this week. "When he was directed to one far away she emerged.

"John [Mayer] threw some money on the table and they headed to the back door and their waiting car," they explained. "Russell didn't seem to see a thing but everyone in the restaurant saw what happened."

The formerly married couple split in December last year and their divorce was finalised several months ago, since when Katy has been spotted out and about with 'Your Body Is A Wonderland' singer John Mayer on a string of heavily publicised dates.

Katy and Russell also narrowly avoided an awkward reunion back in October when they attended the same basketball game in Los Angeles, where they were seated directly opposite each other in the Staples Centre venue.

Katy Perry is currently writing new music ready for her third studio album.
