You know that thing when you run into an ex and you’re like “Ahh, I gotta get out of here.” Yeah, that happens to famous people too and it’s hilarious. Here are 6 celebs with famously awkward encounters with an ex.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand: Katy Perry and Russell Brand had an awkward run in at a restaurant when Katy was on a date with John Mayer! Apparently Katy saw Russell and hid under the table and then as Russell was leaving he spied on her through a window! Later, they went to their sixth period science class and dissected a frog! OMG get it together you two! We’re all adults here!
Taylor Swift and The Kennedy Family: Just a month after calling it quits with Conor Kennedy and then going on to date Harry Styles, Taylor Swift was awarded with the Ripple of Hope Award at the Kennedy Center in NY on Dec 4, 2012 by none other than Conor’s dad Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Awkward!
Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Reggie Bush: Back in October 2012, Kim K and Kanye West were quietly enjoying a date night out in Miami when they nearly ran into Kim’s ex, Reggie Bush who was on a date with his pregnant girlfriend across the street at a different restaurant. As they were leaving, a paparazzi asked if they talked to Reggie, at which point, Kanye punched the photographer. Just a normal Saturday night. Moving on.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore: Just two months after announcing their divorce during January 2012, Ashton and Demi ran into each other at a Golden Globes pre-party at Soho House in Hollywood. As soon as Ashton got to the party he saw Demi and made his way over to her. They exchanged pleasantries and talked for a few minutes and then Ashton left Demi to her friends, who happened to be Madonna and her ex-husband Sean Penn, which is even weirder.
Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey: Remember when Jessica Simpson was married to Nick Lachey? Lol, nope. Anyways, well, they were and one time years later Jessica and her now baby daddy Eric Johnson ran into Nick Lachey and his now wife Vanessa Lachey at an LA restaurant called The Red O. Apparently they didn’t say anything to each other. BORING. Throw a fork, at least.
Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner: Taylor made it twice on this list? Wow, she should really re-think her life choices. But I digress, Taylor and Taylor were placed six seats away from each other at an awards show just weeks after breaking up. Apparently the seat organizer doesn’t read celebrity gossip. Taylor later recalled the incident saying, “I think both of us had so much that we wanted to say, but we’re sitting six seats away from each other, just fighting this silent war of ‘I don’t care that you’re here.’”
