“I can’t afford them,” Katy, 35, told Jimmy Kimmel. “Like I said I can’t afford them. I mean, no. I mean, look. They have a lot of work to do, you know, while I’m out getting married again,” she added, referencing her previous marriage to Russell Brand from 2010 to 2012.

Luke caught on that he knew that he and Lionel didn’t make the cut. “We were in limbo. Lionel and I, we’ve been dropping hints,” he joked. Katy quipped that her Idol costars were on the B-List. Jimmy, 52, chimed in, “Let’s just say don’t save the date.”

Katy also spoke about how the wedding planning process is going during the February 12 episode. “But you know what is so funny is, like, I’m actually like a, not a bridezilla,” she began. “I call myself, like, a bride-chilla. I’m like, ‘I’m kinda chill.’ But I am one of those girls where I got engaged February 14 and I booked the place February 19. I take it very seriously.”

Katy and Orlando originally planned on tying the knot in 2019, but haven’t been able to because of busy schedules. “They wanted to get married quickly but scheduling and pulling everything together has proven to be difficult,” an insider told E! News in December 2019. “The wedding was supposed to be in September, then December and now early next year. They have had to move things around because Katy has grand ideas of where and how she wants things to be.”
