Katy Perry’s divorce from Russell Brand seems to be getting a little down-right ugly! While on a recent tour across seas, rumors that the divorce is happening because of Katy’s partying and supposed cocaine use have trickled out. However, it seems that Katy has taken a page out of the Jennifer Lopez Rebound Book – get close with your backup dancer.
Katy has supposedly been leaning on backup dancer Malik Le Nost for support. He has been a shoulder for her to lean on throughout the bad press she’s recieving over her marriage-fallout, but unlike Lopez Katy is keeping the relationship on ‘friendly’ terms – for now.
“During the tour last year, Katy became extremely close to her band and backing dancers. They all lived in each other’s pockets and everyone knew how much Katy was suffering – not least of all Malik. Throughout her trip to India, Katy spent a lot of time with him the pair would often stay up late into the night chatting and drinking in the hotel bar. When they were dancing on stage together, it was clear she only had eyes for him.”
The source added: “They insist they are just good friends but their closeness has set tongues wagging in the camp.” But Perry must be dating one of her back-up dancers, because, like, if J-Lo did it, why wouldn’t Katy? (That’s sarcasm, folks!) Frankly, given how quickly celebrities tend to hop from one relationship to another, we’re surprised that Katy Perry hasn’t already remarried and had five children since her split from Brand.
