Russell Brand has been seen around lately sans wedding ring, leading to speculation that his marriage with Katy Perry might be on the rocks.
In Touch mag now cites a source who says that it's more than speculation— it's a fact— and on some level Rihanna has something to do with it.
“He’s a vegan who doesn’t drink or smoke, which means he rarely goes out— and she’s still young and wants to have fun,” a friend says.
Katy's on tour in Europe while Brand is back here in the states filming movies.
Between the hours of 2am and 5am on Oct. 14th, she reportedly paid a secret visit to Rihanna's suite at the Savoy hotel in London. Brand is said to have been pretty peeved about it.
“He doesn’t like Rihanna’s influence on Katy,” says the friend. “He’s worried about their partying, and he had a huge fight with Katy about it.”
They also had an all-night party after opening a music festival in Rio de Janeiro.
“Russell told her then that she needs to grow up and sort herself out,” says the friend.
Damn. Trouble in paradise.
