The real reason why Katy's chief bridesmaid wasn't at her wedding
Despite rumours of a rift between the girls, the singer maintains she stayed in the US to promote her new album – to be sure of a good communications network.
‘There was no phone service in India, and little-to-no internet connection,’ claims Rihanna.
‘It would have been a little irresponsible of me.’
The 22-year-old says she will always regret not witnessing Katy exchange vows with former wild man Russell.
‘I’m sad that I missed it,’ Rihanna told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.
‘I will never forgive myself for that.’
