Yes – definitely different tables! I would send an invite to him.

One of my friends just called off her engagement the week before my invites were supposed to go out.  I quickly had hers re-printed with just her name so it she wouldn’t feel devistated to see both of their names on their envelopes.

I think you should definately send him an invite and definately put them in separate tables… like far away!

I would also personally let each one know that the other is invited – if it’s very difficult between them, one may wish to not come. It’s nice to give them a heads’ up – don’t make them ask you if their ex is going to be there. 

We had to do this with a divorced couple that we were friends with, and in the end, one party has chosen not to attend, thus solving the whole issue of where to seat them etc.
