Rihanna throws ‘just divorced’ party for Katy Perry

London: Rihanna threw a “just divorced” party at Soho House for her best friend Katy Perry in New York last week to mark the end of her 14-month marriage to Russell Brand. The girls were treated to gold leaf manicures using 24-carat gold paint costing 1,500 pounds a bottle.

“It was a light-hearted way of getting Katy to cheer up a bit after the past few months of messiness,” a leading daily has quoted a source as saying.

“Rihanna laid on magnums of champagne and kept the shots flowing while the girls had their gold manis,” the source added.

The ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker had also organised Perry’s Cirque du Soleil-themed hen party in Las Vegas in 2010.
