No matter how rich and famous you are, sometimes you need your girlfriends to swoop in and save the day. That’s just what Rihanna is doing with her bestie Katy Perry. RiRi is reportedly planning to whisk her pal away to Mexico in the wake of her shocking split with husband Russell Brand.

Despite the fact that RiRi didn’t attend the couple’s wedding in India in October of 2010 — she was putting the finishing touches on ‘Loud’ at the time — both pop stars are said to have cleared their schedules in order to do a girlfriend’s getaway later this month.

The Mirror reports that a source said, “Rihanna has been there for Katy, texting her from Miami where she’s on holiday. Now they are planning a girlie getaway so Katy can clear her head.”

The same source indicated that Perry is “is absolutely devastated, but the rows over starting a family had just come to a head.” The source continued, “Yes she had agreed to take a year out to focus on children, but she realized the timing was all wrong. She is too young and does not want to put her music on the back burner while she is on top of her game.”

Perhaps a little R&R with Rihanna on an island will do Perry some good and help nurse her broken heart. That’s what gal pals are for.
