The singer was partying at Mahiki when she was told her ex was on his way to the club
Katy Perry made a hasty exit from a top London nightclub this weekend when she was told that her ex, Russell Brand, was on his way to the same venue.
The Part Of Me singer had been enjoying a night in a private room at Mahiki in Mayfair when one of her entourage told her they’d heard a rumour that Brand was en route to the night spot.
Wanting to avoid an awkward encounter, the 27-year-old dashed out of the club and headed to another trendy bar in Chelsea.
A source told the Metro: ‘She wanted to spend the night singing in the room as it’s where her best mate Rihanna normally comes to play when she is in town.
‘Katy was having a great night but bolted out the door when one of her sidekicks stunned her by telling her Russ was about to turn up.
‘Rather than risk an awkward run-in, Katy didn’t take any chances and ordered everyone to move on to a club in Chelsea instead.’
There was no chance of Perry running into her ex-husband, though, as the comedian is currently in the States after being arrested for allegedly throwing a paparazzi’s iPhone through a window.
He turned himself into police last week and was promptly charged with one count of criminal damage before being released on bail after coughing up $5,000.
