Katy Perry and Rihanna used to be close friends. Although they met thanks to their involvement in the music industry, a solid friendship between the two has existed for the last few years. Not only do both singers prefer to sit next to each other at awards shows, but they discuss their loves lives with one another, and are usually present at each others events and life changing circumstances. Katy and Rihanna seemed to have gotten a little closer after Chris and Rihanna had that very nasty public breakup, which was a result of him assaulting her tragically in 2009. But now things have changed for Rihanna and Chris, as they appear to be rekindling their romance (even though Karrueche still isn’t completely out of the picture) publicly, something many feared would ruin Rihanna’s very high profile singing career.
Well if the latest gossip bears any truth, Rihanna’s relationship with Chris Brown is hurting more than her image, it’s also hurting some of her close friendships.
According to some reports, Rihanna and Katy Perry’s friendship has fizzled due to Rihanna’s rekindled romance with Chris Brown. Some sources are alleging that Katy Perry is severely disappointed that Rihanna would get back together with the same man who viciously assaulted her a few years ago, and the same guy who left her bloodied and bruised for the entire world to see.
A source tells the NY Daily News:
”They’re barely talking and ever since the couple reunited, there has been tension between them. Katy has been spending a lot of time with pals Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Katy fears Rihanna is making a huge mistake and doesn’t want to be part of it.”
We’re not sure how true this is, but we did find it strange that Rihanna wished Katy a happy birthday on Twitter and Katy didn’t seem to acknowledge it. Interestingly enough, she responded to the HBD tweets from other celebs though.
And we also found it kind of odd that Katy hasn’t really hung out with Rihanna since she’s been hanging out with Chris again.
This isn’t the first time that it has been speculated that some of Rihanna’s friends aren’t too thrilled about her reaching back out to Chris Brown on a romantic level. Just a few weeks ago, reports suggested that some of Rihanna’s pals felt the relationship was just too unhealthy to ever work.
