London: Singer Rihanna is reportedly trying to set Katy Perry with a new man to help her get over the split with Russell Brand. Rihanna is close to the ‘Firework’ star and hopes to help her get over her 14-month marriage to Brand, which ended in December, by getting her back on the dating scene, reports a website.

"Rihanna wants to help Katy in any way she can. She is telling her that she`ll start setting her up," a source told a website.

Perry`s friends are also keen on the idea of her finding a new romance, instead of "wasting time" crying over Brand.

"Katy has been very upset about the divorce. She never expected it to end and now she`s dealing with the aftermath. But her friends are telling her to get back out there and date. They don`t want her to waste time being upset over Russell," said the source.
