Katy Perry seems to be pulling a Jennifer Lopez as she has plucked a backup dancer from her tour to serve as her male companion. Katy was devastated when Russell Brand filed for divorce from her by surprise at the end of December. The singer is still spinning from her breakup from her husband and has hooked up with studly dancer Malik Le Most. Malik served on Katy’s ‘California Dreams’ tour and is now helping Katy cope with being single – but her friends claim the relationship is strictly platonic.
The Sunday Mirror’s source revealed: “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.”
“In sound check on the day of the last show, the pair started falling about in fits of giggles over a private joke. It was as if they were a couple. Malik shot her cheeky winks across the stage and showered her with hugs. Katy was clearly loving the attention.”
The source added: “They insist they are just good friends but their closeness has set tongues wagging in the camp.”
Do we see expect to see Katy with a Malik boytoy soon? Will she be taking Malik to meet her anti-Semitic fundamentalist Christian parents? Or is Katy just reaching out to a friend?
