Although people were initially discussing their clothing choice, many soon shifted their focus to their relationship status. There were rumors in the past that the pop star was dating Riff Raff, whose real name is Horst Simco, but this pairing seemed unlikely. Nevertheless, the two of them made quite the spectacle as they strutted down the red carpet together. Later in the evening, TMZ caught up with them as they left Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. When asked if they were officially together, Riff Raff responded with a playful quip about having a couple of babies on the way.

To complete her look, Katy wore a bold statement necklace and carried a small denim purse embellished with sparkling accents.
