Rihanna loves ‘rude’ Katy and Russell

Rihanna thinks that Katy Perry and Russell Brand are perfect because they’re both “hilarious, rude and disrespectful.”

The ‘Rude Boy’ singer - who is expected to be bridesmaid when the couple marry later this year - became friends with the singer and the comic separately, but admits she would never have predicted they would embark on a relationship together.

She said: “I met him a few years ago when he interviewed me, and became friends with Katy later, and it’s so funny because I would never have put the two of them together.

“But when she told me it made so much sense. I was like, ‘Of course you guys would be together, you are both just hilarious and rude and disrespectful, it’s perfect.’ ”

Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson split?

Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson have reportedly split just six weeks after announcing their engagement.

The singer-and-TV star and her rugby player fiance - who have children Ruby, two, and 16-month-old Dexter together - have apparently ended their romance after months of disagreements.

A source said: “It is an incredibly sad state of affairs. Both Gavin and Charlotte are deeply distraught. But after a lot of soul-searching, they realised this is the best course of action for them and the children. It was a mutual decision.
