Robert Pattinson got his heart broken when Kristen Stewart cheated on him but, as it happens, he might not stay single for long. He’s already getting “flirty” on “touchy-feely” dates with Katy Perry, it has emerged.
The “Twilight” stars dated for about 3 years starting with the first film in the vampire saga, but they are believed to have called it quits after photos of Kristen kissing a married man emerged in the press.
Heartbroken, Pattinson moved out of the house they shared and, if we’re to believe reports online, erased even the memory of Kristen.
At the same time, he’s also been finding comfort in the arms of good friend Katy Perry, whom he’s been acquainted with for 5 years, give or take.
They’re still on strictly friendly terms but, according to a new report in the latest print issue of Us Weekly (story via CB), that might soon change.
They’ve already been spending more time together since the cheating scandal.
“They are two of the biggest stars on the planet, but Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson managed to go practically unnoticed at private West Hollywood club Soho House August 23,” Us writes.
“Nestled close at a table for two in the garden, the singer and the Twilight heartthrob — with a cap pulled over his brow – ‘tried to keep a superlow profile,’ says a witness. As the pair lingered over dinner, Perry hung on Pattinson’s every word, giggling like a coquettish schoolgirl. ‘She was jokey with him and a little touchy-feely. They were flirting’,” the publication further writes.
As it happens, Katy too is coming out of a relationship, even though it was nothing as serious as Robert’s romance with Kristen: she and John Mayer dated for a couple of months but are no longer seeing each other.
“I’m sure they were bonding over how bad this year has been for both of them,” a spy says for the mag.
Indeed, for the time being, that’s all the two are doing: bonding. However, Katy has a mind of getting Rob to see her as more than a friend, the report further mentions.
