Katy Perry Leans on Rihanna in the Wake of Her Break-Up With Russell Brand

January 04, 2012 11:24 AM by Perry Miller

Katy Perry was seen out on New Year’s Eve in Hollywood putting on a happy face in the wake of her husband of 14 months, Russell Brand, filing for divorce the day before. The pop star, who has been a guest judge and performed on American Idol, seems to be leaning on her girlfriends during this difficult time. What are Katy Perry’s plans for healing her broken heart? Read on to find out.

Katy Perry is rumored to be devastated about her impending divorce, from actor/comedian Russell Brand and has been leaning heavily on her close friend, Rihanna.

“Katy is hardly speaking to anyone right now, but she called Rihanna as soon as she heard Russell was filing for divorce,” a source close to the singer tells tabloid The Sun. “When Katy told her the news, she suggested flying down to Barbados to stay with her and her family.”

Another source told the Mirror,”Rihanna has been there for Katy, texting her from Miami where she’s on holiday,” the source says. “Now they are planning a girly getaway so Katy can clear her head.”

Rihanna and Katy Perry have been friends longer than Katy has been with Russell Brand. Rihanna even threw Katy’s bachelorette party prior to her October, 2010 wedding in India. Ironically, it has been rumored that Katy Perry’s friendship with Rihanna may have been a point of contention between the couple. Russell Brand, who is a recovering heroin and sex addict, preferred to dodge the Hollywood party scene. He felt that Rihanna and her hard-partying ways were a negative influence on his wife.

Russell Brand filed for divorce on December 30. Divorce rumors had been rampant since the couple was photographed thousands of miles apart on Christmas, both without their wedding rings.

    It’s such a pity that marriges just don’t last like they use to like back in the early 1900′s
    Marriage and vows just doesn’t mean anything to guys today, all they want is sex and once they get it they simply say ADIOS! That’s so not right :(

    Uh, sounds like they are going to partying to celebrate her singleness. The way you stay married is hang with friends who are married and settled down. This marriage was doomed from the get go. I wouldn’t want my wife hanging with Rhianna either. I don’t know why they even got married. Kathy was clearly not ready to settle down, and being seen on camera with others arms around you for either of them to do.

    Katy Perry may be gay and this could be the reason for their breakup.
