Rihanna’s not happy about Katy Perry’s recent statement, claiming she can’t save the ‘Stay’ singer from her detrimental entourage. RiRi wants everyone to know that she doesn’t need to be saved and if she did, she wouldn't call on Katy Perry.
After Katy Perry talked about Rihanna in a recent interview, saying she’s done saving [Rihanna] from the people she hangs out with, RiRi’s firing back!
“Rihanna doesn’t need to be saved by anyone,” a source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “The man upstairs is to whom she owes everything. That’s who brought her here and that’s who she’s leaving with!”
Rihanna has become accustomed to people making judgements about her life, so she holds no ill will towards Katy. Friends of RiRi’s tell us that she “adores” Katy and isn’t harboring any shade toward the “Wide Awake” singer.
“Everybody has an opinion about something,” the source adds. “RiRi’s grown and will walk through fire by herself if it means it will make her stronger. Rihanna knows how to cut ties and cut them so sharp that your teeth bleed! She knows how to get rid of toxic people in her life. She’s not a baby and has everything she could ever want or need in life. She’s happy and thankful.”
As previously reported, Katy, 28, told Elle UK that she and Rihanna, 25, have grown apart and while she will always have much love for RiRi, she doesn’t like Rihanna’s choice of friends, mainly the people in her entourage.
“I love her [Rihanna] and every time I see her, I’m reminded of the light that she has,” Katy says. “There’s a lot of dark in this business,” Perry said before elaborating, without naming anyone specific. “I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages — they are the root of their demise. It’s really unfortunate but you can’t save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over.”
