Rihanna and Katy Perry are BFFs — and both mega pop stars — so of course Katy understood when her close pal had to work, rather than fly to India for Katy’s wedding to Russell Brand … this according to sources close to the wedding.
Perry and Brand tied the knot earlier today in a traditional Hindu wedding. But while reports say the wedding was just family friends, sources tell us Katy’s good friend Rihanna wasn’t in attendance.
Rihanna was a part of Katy’s Las Vegas bachelorette party — but, according to our source, Rihanna told Katy she couldn’t make it because she had to hit the studio.
We’re told Katy booked a special room for Rihanna — but she totally understood why RiRi couldn’t hop a plane to India.
