Katy Perry Shows Russell Brand What He’s Missing at the Lakers’ Season Opener — PIC

Katy Perry Lakers

For the first time since their divorce was finalized in July, Katy Perry and Russell Brand were spotted in the same public venue — they both took in the Lakers’ NBA season opener on Tuesday night.

According to E!, the two sat on opposite sides of the court and had zero interaction, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t highly aware of one another’s presence. You know how it is when you arrive at a friend’s party only to realize your ex is there, too — suddenly you have to simultaneously avoid the offending person and have the most fun ever. From the look of things, Perry (who attended the game with her dad, Keith Hudson), had those things on lock.

Now Katy just needs to show the Lakers how to finish.

But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
