The Lonny Barnett of 'Rock of Ages' reportedly has been scratched off the guest list of the 38th annual People's Choice Awards to avoid 'any awkwardness or confrontation' with the 'E.T.' singer.
Russell Brand, who was initially invited to 2012 People's Choice Awards along with his wife Katy Perry, reportedly is no longer on the guest list of the upcoming 38th anniversary of the prize-giving event. Rumor has it, his exclusion was made to avoid confrontation with the "One That Got Away" singer who is confirmed to make an appearance.
"It will be Katy's big night, a prelude to the Grammys, and now Russell has been strangely left off the list of attendees for the high-profile event," a source told the Mirror. "It was always going to be awkward for organizers in any case after their shock decision to split. But in order to avoid any awkwardness or confrontation Russ is no longer on the list."
Katy gets seven nominations at the PCAs. She receives five in music, adds another nod in movie as a contender for Favorite Animated Movie Voice, thanks to her role in "The Smurfs", and gets her seventh in TV as one of the Favorite TV Guest Star nominees, thanks to her guest stint in "How I Met Your Mother".
The show itself is going to take place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California on January 11. Emma Stone, Nina Dobrev, Ashley Greene, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens, Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence and Lea Michele are set to attend. Meanwhile, Demi Lovato and Faith Hill are going to perform.
In another news related to Russell and Katy, two mover vans were recently seen outside their $6.5 million Hollywood Hills house. It's unclear who's moving out of the place and who continues to reside in the three-story house they once shared. Both of them weren't not seen anywhere near the area when the moving vans were spotted.
