Katy Perry pulls out of first post-divorce appearance at the People’s Choice Awards

The singer has canceled her first public appearance

Katy Perry has canceled her first public appearance since Russell Brand announced the pair were heading for divorce.

The singer was set to attend the People’s Choice Awards at the Nokia theatre in Los Angeles tomorrow night (Wednesday 11th January) but has had a change of heart.

The 27-year-old is nominated for seven awards at the ceremony, including Favourite Pop artist, Favourite Female artist and Favourite song of the year.

She announced her withdrawal from the event on Twitter, writing: ‘Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the People’s Choice Awards. I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed!’ (sic)

Her soon-to-be-ex-husband was reportedly uninvited to the awards after Perry confirmed that she would be attending.

Brand announced that he was divorcing Perry on December 30 after 14 months of marriage.
