Katy Perry reportedly ducked under a table to avoid an encounter with her ex-husband Russell Brand at a Los Angeles restaurant.
A source said: "The hostess almost seated Russell next to Katy. Katy's face was like, 'Oh, s***!'"
The waitress apparently ushered funnyman Russell to another dining area after the mishap.
Katy, whose divorce from funnyman Russell Brand was made final earlier this year, was first spotted out with singer-songwriter John in June.
