The old no cellphone service excuse
We all know that Katy Perry's bestie Rihanna was M.I.A. during KP's nuptials in India, but what's the aftermath of the RSVP rerouting? Though Rihanna insists she and Perry continued to swap texts prior to the walk down the aisle, she's been out of touch with her pal since Perry and Russell Brand traded rings.
"Ever since (Perry's) been there it's been no text messages because there's no service," Rihanna said, according to Us Weekly.
"Rih was finishing her album, and she just switched managers, so she had to pull out at the last minute," a source close to the singer explained to the mag, adding,
It was always sort of up in the air that she would go anyway, and Katy knew that. They saved her a room just in case, but they always knew it would be nearly impossible for her to make it as she's still finishing the album and it's out in a few weeks. Rih was in the studio all weekend."
So is the diva duo over?
"I got her a really, really cool gift," Rihanna, 22, told Entertainment Tonight. "But I'll let her tell you about that!"
Perry has yet to dispatch a press release about what she's unwrapped, but we have a feeling she'll be throwing out Rihanna along with the ribbons and tissue paper.
