Katy Perry Las Vegas

Katy Perry made her first public appearance yesterday in Las Vegas since Russell Brand filed for divorce, but friends close to the pop star tell us she’s still depressed by the split

Katy Perry may have looked to be all smiles with her BFF Markus Molinari at the grand opening of 1 OAK Las Vegas and the GiveLove charity event at the Mirage Hotel & Casino Jan. 27, but underneath that cheerful grin, the 27-year-old is still mourning her failed marriage toRussell Brand.

Katy was supposed to attend the People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 11 but she backed out at the last minute. We have been told Katy is completely “devastated” and that she was happy to go on tour to Indonesia to “get away from the drama.”

Thankfully, she has her BFFs, including Rihanna, to keep her occupied.

“Katy’s friends are doing everything they can to help keep her happy and just be there to listen to her,” our source told us. “Rihanna has been unbelievable and checks up on her every day and even invited her on a trip. Katy even asked Rihanna to meet her in Vegas and be there with her.”

Unfortunately, Rihanna had to make an appearance at the Cirque de Soleil premiere in Los Angeles and couldn’t come to Vegas.
