Russell Brand is learning to stay away from the paparazzi and their precious cell phones.
The actor/comedian is still in New Orleans filming a project, but it looks like he's making the most of his time in the southern town.
He took his mom Babs and his new lady friend for some luncheroo, then they packed things up and met up with some other folks before escaping from the photogs in a big black car.
Hopefully, he's able to put that whole iPhone bizness behind him!
