Barely a day goes by without at least one half of this hot couple making Hollywood headlines, and today is no exception. Having already been voted the number one wedding to watch, Brand and Perry have been pretty tight lipped as to the specific plans for their nuptials.
But despite their best efforts to keep the rumor mill guessing, the location of the wedding has been leaked by none other than fellow performer and bride’s best friend, Rihanna. In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” the Barbadian R&B singer confirmed that the wedding will take place in India, for which the invitations are already out, and that she will be in attendance.
Brand proposed on New Year’s Eve, at the Taj Rambagh hotel in Jaipur, India in December of 2009. Since then the rumors have been running rampant regarding when, where, and how they will be exchanging wedding rings. Guesses have included a bridal gown made from latex (often Perry’s costume material of choice), a wedding day performance by musician Morrissey, and a fall wedding in Maui, Hawaii.
However, the real location confirmation comes on the heels of news that Brand will not be legally charged in an incident that occurred last month at LAX airport. Yet more rumors surfaced that the nuptials would be postponed due to a scuffle with a paparazzo who reportedly tried to take an “upskirt shot” of Perry while walking through the airport, which resulted in Brand’s arrest for assault.
In an interview with ITN, the British comedian denied the supposed postponement, despite the outcome of his arrest. Brand told the U.K. based new source that this latest rumor was “like most rumors you find on the internet, spurious, untrue, unnecessary and unhelpful.”
Most of the gossip regarding the couple has been baseless so far, but one thing the stars have confirmed themselves is their desire to receive no gifts when they finally exchange vows. Earlier this month, Brand told reporters that he and his bride to be have been blessed in their respective fields and asking for gifts seems too indulgent. In lieu of a registry, the couple has asked guests to donate to charity instead.
Perry recently told reporters that once herself and Brand officially tie the knot, they will no longer speak publically about their relationship. No word on an official date set on this promise, so we shall just have to wait and see.
