Alas, Katy Perry and Jennifer Aniston are not quite the bosom buddies the tabloids would have us believe. According to the pop star, those prior reports that Aniston will be the godmother to her unborn daughter with fiancé Orlando Bloom are a total fiction.
During an appearance on the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O on Sunday, Perry explained, “She texted us, because we are friendly with her and Orlando is one of her good friends, and we were like, ‘Wow, this is a wild rumor.’ I mean, God knows with her, she’s had everything said about her. But I guess this is a fun rumor. But no, we have no idea where it came from.”
That fun rumor was originated by The Mirror which claimed last week that the Friends actress, and Perry’s “number one friend,” has been “a huge support” to her and Bloom during the quarantine. An anonymous source told the tabloid, “Katy and Jen are very close. During lockdown, they went for socially distanced walks and spent lots of time catching up. She is pretty chuffed about it as well and cried when they asked her.” The fact that this L.A. source used the word “chuffed” probably should have been a dead giveaway.
Perry went on to tell the radio hosts that the story was purely “a product of the media and the internet,” joking “You should definitely believe everything that you read.”
