The new Mrs Russell Brand has forgiven her best friend for missing her wedding

When kooky Katy Perry, 26, and randy Russell Brand, 35, got married in India, everything was perfect – except the maid of honour was missing.

Though she partied with Katy in Las Vegas before the ceremony, Rihanna missed her Big Day.

‘I was upset she couldn’t make it but let me promise you, there was no one more upset about it than her,’ Katy tells Now.

‘When you have an album coming out you don’t have a spare second in the day and you’re answerable to the record company.’

The girls haven’t fallen out about 22-year-old Rihanna‘s no-show.

‘She felt really bad she couldn’t be there but we’re still the very best of friends,’ Katy insists.

‘My girl organised the best bachelorette party ever and I’ll always love her to bits.

‘It was just one of those really unfortunate things.’
