The rift in their relationship was evident at the Met Gala. Because Rihanna was the co-chair of the event, she had to pose for tons of red carpet photos. She and Katy were stopped for a picture since the American Idol host was one of the more high-profile guests there. A source close to Katy told the Sun:
“Because Rihanna was chairing the Met Gala, she had to pose with a lot of the celebrity guests but it was really uncomfortable when she was asked to have the photo with Katy. They used to be close but Rihanna’s expression in the photo says it all.”
The source added that Katy “was upset about the whole situation because Rihanna was cold to her and she wasn’t invited to her after-party.”
It seems that Katy can’t seem to catch a break. Right after she mended her relationship with Taylor Swift, another one appears to be falling apart.
