I RiRi don’t want to be pals, Katy!

Sunday Mirror - - SAIRAKHAN -

sHe fa­mously fell out with Tay­lor swift and now poor Katy Perry’s friend­ship with her show­biz bestie Ri­hanna has be­come a tad frosty too.

The ladies have not been seen to­gether for more than a year and have gone to ex­treme lengths to avoid each other at re­cent show­biz events.

Tellingly, Katy was ab­sent from Ri­hanna’s Los An­ge­les Di­a­mond Ball char­ity bash this week. And on the red car­pet Ri­hanna made an as­ton­ish­ing dig at the woman she once de­scribed as “one of my best friends in the in­dus­try”.

When asked if she would join Katy on the new Amer­i­can Idol panel, she looked unim­pressed be­fore snip­ing: “I don’t know, it de­pends on how bored I am.” Whis­pers about their ap­par­ent fall-out started go­ing round when Katy was the only big name ab­sent from Ri­hanna’s MET Gala After­party.

The Fire­work singer then spent Coachella fret­ting with pals about how her close friend seemed to be freez­ing her out. They spent the fes­ti­val apart, with Ri­hanna snub­bing Katy’s shoe launch.

A source said: “They didn’t have a big bust-up over one spe­cific thing, but over time their friend­ship has gone from be­ing one of the strong­est to prac­ti­cally nonex­is­tent. Katy was pretty gut­ted about it.

“Some pals have said they just grew apart when she started dat­ing Or­lando Bloom last year but the re­al­ity is, no­body knows ex­actly what went down be­tween the pair.” The girls were once so close that Ri­hanna at­tended Katy’s hen party ahead of her mar­riage to Rus­sell Brand. She also gushed about her in an in­ter­view, say­ing: “She’s un­be­liev­able, un­be­liev­able! She is such a strong be­ing. She wants to be there for me and I’m like, ‘Girl, I’m sup­posed to be there for you, don’t worry about me right now!’ She’s in­cred­i­ble like that. She’s one of my best friends in the in­dus­try.” With Tay­lor Swift fall­ing out with peo­ple faster than she can write chart top­pers, pop mu­sic needs strong fe­male friend­ships to in­spire young fans. I hope these ladies can patch things up.
