Katy Perry only bitten by love bug

Katy Perry's laughed off reports that her honeymoon was ruined by a spider bite.

On Twitter she says "I've not been bitten by a spider. I'll file this 1 in the ever growing cabinet of false information that has been at it's PEAK as of late..."

According to Australia's Grazia magazine Perry developed a nasty rash on her legs and was treated with medication which left her exhausted.

It was supposed to have happened shortly after the star arrived at the Soneva Fushi resort in the Maldives with her new husband Russell Brand.

But when it was suggested on Twitter "but you have been bitten by the love bug :)" Katy replied "now this is true"!

Perry will be in Madrid on Sunday for the MTV EMAs.
