There must have been a lot of tension in the Staples Center for the Lakers season opener last night. We’re not talking about the game (though the Dallas Mavericks won, 99 to 91). Nope, it was the fact that exes Russell Brand and Katy Perry were both in attendance, though obviously not together. 

From one side of the arena, Katy and her father, Keith Hudson, cheered on the Lakers. With tall basketball players and lots of seats between them, Russell watched from between two unidentified young boys. According to E! Online, the former couple didn’t interact at all.

Well, that’s one post-breakup milestone achieved. Up next? Running into your ex with your current boyfriend. We guess that means you, John Mayer?
