Robert Pattinson has been spending a lot of time with Katy Perry lately: suspicious?

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have both been friends with Katy Perry for a few years. They go clubbing together, they hang out together at awards shows, and I think Kristen is really close friends with Katy’s assistant or something. Given that so many people are just waiting for Rob and Kristen to finally be OVER, do you think Katy Perry could play a part in a potential Robsten demise? Well, Rob has apparently been in and out of NYC recently and he’s been spending a lot of time with Katy. Just the two of them. Hunh.

“Twilight” heartthrob Robert Pattinson spent some of the weekend hanging out with Katy Perry. The actor was spotted dining with Perry and two other girls at Gemma on Friday night. One diner told us, “Robert was with Perry and two other girls. He had a glass of red wine and a salad and was laughing a lot with Katy.” Pattinson was also spotted last week at the Bowery Ballroom with Perry to see indie band Daughter, then the pair headed to the Spot Lounge at the Trump Soho. However it has been reported that he is expected to attend tonight’s Met Gala with on-again/off-again love Kristen Stewart. His rep didn’t get back to us.

I should say, rumors about Sparkles and Katy are nothing new. Shortly after she and Russell Brand got divorced, there were stories about her setting her sights on Rob. Then after Kristen Stewart got Mini Cooper’d, there were some stories about Katy and Rob too. But, as I said, they are legitimately friends. My take: if Rob would just leave Kristen for good, Katy would be all over that. But would Rob be into it? Maybe that’s why he’s spending so much one-on-one time with her now – he’s exploring his options? Could be. God, I am so looking forward to being yelled at by Twihards today.

PS… I can’t wait to see what Balenciaga fuggery Kristen wears at the Met Gala. And I can’t wait to see if Sparkles is there and if they walk the carpet together.

    Robert tastes in women is awful! But I’d gladly take Katy or Kristen anytime.

    • marie says:

      ha, thought the same thing but I think those two (Rob/Katy) are just friends.

    • rashers says:

      Lol! Ladies with everything we know of these hipsters, what on earth would make you assume that they would insist on exclusivity?? Rob and Kristen would view monogamy as unnecessary shackles. Rob and Kristen would encourage one another to break free of these societal shackles. Rob and Kristen are true bohemians.

  2. Adeli says:

    Balenciaga is dressing Julianne Moore for the MET, and she will be accompanied by Alexander Wang, their new designer. Apparently Kristen is going with Nicolas Ghesquiere in one of his own designs.

    I highly doubt there’s anything brewing between Rob and Katy. I’d love it if he dumped Kristen, but it’s not happening with Katy.

    • OhDear says:

      Re: Balenciaga – that could get awkward.

    • Tig says:

      OMG- Queen Julianne will be in Balenciaga!! Can’t wait to see that!

      Glad to see that K Stew can be loyal to someone! That being said, don’t have high hopes for her attire tonight- don’t see NG being able to pull it off.

      • Olivia says:

        @tig maybe queen Julianne and kristen will take a picture together since they are friends.

  3. Leen says:

    THis story just made me infinitely glad I am not famous. I am friends with a lot of couples and spend one-on-one time with a bunch of my friends’ boyfriends, and I guess that means to the gossip world that I’m planning to date them after they break up….

    • Annie says:

      Well it’s good to have boundries, you know. I mean why would you want to spend so much time alone with your friends’ boyfriends? If I knew you, I’d keep a close eye on you, because that is exactly what a former friend of mine did, emphasis on the former. She’d try to spend a lot of time alone with everyone’s boyfriends (she was always single, of course) and sure enough, drama happened, even if she tried to be casual about it. Now she’s friendless after a series of very revealing texts.

      Idk… Boundries are good.

      • Leen says:

        Maybe I was not clear but the reason why I would spend one-on-one with them is because I knew them prior to dating my other friends (hence, if I stopped spending one-on-one time with them as I usually do, then that would be weird).
        And as I’ve said below, I think also it depends on the age. I am after all talking about college friends, I am only 21 and therefore it would be weirder if I avoided my male friends like the plague once they started dating or getting into relationships.

        Which is why I sympathize with sort of with the attention here. Pattison and Stewart are in their early twenties, and they both seem to have been friends with Katy for a while, so imo it’s not weird that Katy and Robert are spending time with eachother (and 2 other unknown females). Sounds like what quite a few of my male friends do (especially those who lived in co-ed houses).

        To be completely fair though, I doubt that I would actively seek out to spend one-on-one time with my friends’ boyfriends IF i didn’t know them prior to that. And I can think of a good couple of my friends’s significant others that I’ve never really spent any time alone because never found the need to. But again, seems to me that katy perry is friends with both of them, so I can’t get too judgy on that.

    • jaye says:

      Why would you be spending one-on-one time with your friends’ significant others? That’s asking for trouble, imo. I have a couple of married friends and I would NEVER spend time alone with their husbands. The only way I’d even consider it if they were giving me a lift if my car broke down or something. That type of situation is a slippery slope even if your intentions are innocuous.

      • Leen says:

        TO clarify, I was friends with these significant others before they became a couple with my other friends. So it would be weird if I actually stopped spending one on one time with them.
        And I think that differs as well on a generational level. After all I am only 21, the couples that I speak off are also in the same age-bracket so it would be extremely weird for me if I stopped hanging out with my male friends without their girlfriends around.

      • Jenny says:

        @Leen, I’m with you. There is a big difference if you were friends with the guys independent of and especially before their relationships with girlfriends of yours. That doesn’t really seem like an odd thing at all, particularly for you young folk, lol! I was a lot like that in high school and college where there was a big gang of us that were friends and then so-and-so ended up dating so-and-so. It didn’t mean I had to stop being friends with the guy in the relationship and more likely than not they would be broken up within the year anyway and I would have made it awkward with a good friend for no reason.

      • Leen says:

        Exactly thank you Jenny! I was a bit taken aback with the judgy comments on here (implying that an eye should be kept on me). Like you said, I tend to hang out in big groups of people in college and have many male friends as a result, so it’s not weird for my girlfriends to be dating some of my guy friends.. doesn’t really mean I’m going to stop hanging out with them when they aren’t around. I think it would just be completely unnecessary and awkward.

        That’s kind of what sprung to mind when I first read the story, tbh.

      • Louminary says:

        Wow! a lot of vitriol spewing here! Are all single women to be branded desperate husband stealers for having married male friends? that’s a little harsh.

        I have many male married friends I hang out with one on one. They were my friends first, not the women. I have known these guys since early teen years, and none of their wives (who are also close friends now) take any issue with it. And I feel so grateful for that, judging by the tone of these responses!

      • Olivia says:

        I bet all the married Robert fans that post here would be more than happy to spend alone time with him. Hahaha

      • jaye says:

        @Louminary…where’s the vitriol you’re speaking of? Who said single women were “husband stealers”? I’m a single woman, so I’m definitely not painting all single women w/that brush. If you have good friends who don’t mind you spending one-on-one time with their husbands, that’s great. Mazel Tov. I don’t know whether or not my best friends would react badly at me hanging out with their husbands alone only because I would never do it. I’m not judging, I just questioned it and stated an opinion. We’re allowed to do that, right? Or did I miss the memo?

  4. bsh says:

    There is nothing between Rob and Kristen either, they’re just very close friends who pretend to be a couple for publicity’s sake. How anyone can still be unaware / in denial about this is beyond me.

    • pfeiffer87 says:

      If that’s true then the “publicity” has been really detrimental to Kstew’s career. She would have just said ‘I’m not dating Rob’ after the mini-coopering incident and everyone would have gone back to not-hating-her-but-still-annoyed-at-her-lip-bitingness. As it is she released a statement saying that she loves him and everyone hates her, plus she’s not getting any good job offers. If that’s her idea of publicity then she’s a moron, as is he.

      • Apples says:

        Don’t forget their then approaching movie premiere, though. She (they) couldn’t risk enraging the Twihards and their multiple (10x times!!) viewings of the movie in theaters.

      • bsh says:

        You are right, I don’t see the point in keeping this scam going when it’s clear that there has been no actual bonus either to their career or their status. There is no passion between them, and WITHIN them. I find them really boring and unintersting, lacking of carisma and the so-called “X” factor. I believe only the Twi-hards are seriously interested in this “couple”. That being said, if she had told the truth she would have lost her face (obviously). Plus, I am sure they have been under some kind of contrac so there is a lot of legal stuff/money involved.

    • Annie says:

      Why is it so hard for people to believe they are a couple? It’s like it’s impossible for them to be together. Why? Twilight is over. Yeah, they get more attention together, and there have been benefits thanks to their relationship, but come on. What is so impossible about them being a couple? I think it’s perfectly clear after Sanders that Kristen is not a lesbian, like everyone loved assume.

      • MissA says:

        That’s because Rob is a really macho guy who has been secretly single all these years waiting for the right fangirl to settle down.He is an angel who going along with Summit/Kstew’s plan to help her reputation even though Twilight is over & nobody except Twihards
        care about it. Their relationship cannot be real,okay? It was arranged by a movie studio which couldn’t afford a decent wig for Newmoon. Its all a huge conspiracy which involves all their family members,friends and other random people around us.Payroll talks but ssssh its a secret,okay?

  5. Deb says:

    This guy is the biggest douche on the planet. I’m so sick of seeing his emo bitchface. Go away puhleeze

  6. Talie says:

    Rob seems really insecure to me and this is one reason he wouldn’t leave Kristen.

  7. c'est la vie says:

    Rob makes me tired. How much mini-coopering does it take to figure out that she’s just not that into him. He seems to like being stepped on. You know – kind of like a sparkly doormat.

    He might as well make a move on Katy (like that will happen) but whatever happened to John Mayer?

  8. elceibeno08 says:

    Rob’s beard looks pretty good. It makes him look more worldly and sexy.

  9. Annie says:

    Meh. He’s too pussy whipped by Kristen to really consider another woman, I think. That guy is sticking with her until SHE ends it. I hope I’m wrong.

    I would’ve loved it if he had dumped Kristen after the scandal, and if he started seeing other people, but if he put up with that, he’ll put up with anything.

    It’s important to point out that Katy has been friends with Rob before he ever got together with Kristen and before Twilight even came out. They were part of the same crew: Andrew Garfield, his obnoxious ex who is BFFs with Katy Shannon Woodward, and a few others. This was before either of them were super famous.

    Maybe Katy does like him, but I want Rob with someone like the girl he was rumored to be seen with, Hemingway’s grand daughter? Educated, not famous, pretty, upper class. Someone who’s the opposite of Kristen. But he can’t let go of her yet.

    • Olivia says:

      @annie you mean Dree Hemingway Crisman? While I am sure she is a lovely person, I think you are confusing wealthy with educated and upper class. She left high school at 16 to pursue a modeling career. The hemingway family may be “upper class” but it has been plagued with some scandals. I raise my eyebrows at her using the Hemingway name as her acting name since her official last name is Crisman. I assume Crisman doesn’t open doors quite like Hemingway.

      • Annie says:

        No, that is not her. The girl Rob was seen with was college educated and had an artsy low key job. Maybe I’m confusing people. But she sounded awesome, and all anti-kristen Rob fans were all Yessss, go for her. She sounded interesting, and was very beautiful. Not at all a drop out. I’m mixing people up then.

  10. TinyPixie says:

    You know you are a complete douche when you’re BFFs with Katy Perry and bearding with Kristen Stewart. Two more insufferable women you could not find.

  11. M says:

    Katy Perry is not Rob’s type.

    • Annie says:

      Yeah, I don’t think Rob can handle a woman like Katy. He needs someone who still acts like a teenager. He’s so insecure and I bet he’s one of those men that are too terrified to talk to women. But even Kristen danced in circles around him, so who knows what he can handle. Maybe nothing.

      The more I analyze him, the more disappointed I am. He’s just so weak.

      • Claire says:

        I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed such a spiteful, bitter ex-fan as you Annie. You always make multiple comments on Rob posts discussing, in great length, his inadequasues and the reason for which you dislike him so much. Here’s an idea, if you think he’s that pathetic, why continually post about him? Why not just move on? Maybe make one comment and leave it at that. Your reaction is baffling.

    • Another Ann says:

      I’d say it’s more the other way around. She goes for the super bad boy type. Russell Brand, John Mayer, etc.

    • MissA says:

      Rob is not Katy’s type either. She is into bad boys/d-bags and I don’t think Rob is like that at all.

  12. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    I wish this rumor was true. But I don’t think Rob is exploring his options. I hate to say he is really into KScrew. From the moment I read this news about him gifting KScrew his grandma’s pearl ring, I gave up all the hope of him dumping her in future. This sh!t is serious. 🙁

    • Apples says:

      LOL!! What makes you believe that story over the many conspiracy options? I also read that ring was a gift from a jeweler who kept Tweeting pictures every time she wore it. *shrugs*

    • Annie says:

      He’s obsessed with her since he saw her in Into the Wild. That is why he auditioned for Twilight in the first place. He knew she was the lead and they were auditioning boys his age. That guy was determined to being with her he auditioned for a movie with her. The way he kissed her butt on the Twilight Tuesday videos was very telling “She’s the best actress of this generation and the reason I wanted to do this movie.” The way he worshipped her in interviews was crazy. Then he tells a reporter how he was writing songs about her the entire time. We are going to see them together for at least another year or two. But I still don’t see them together forever. Maybe having a kid would make them last longer, but I do sense a change in him since it all happened. He’s less smiley.
      So hopefully he’s at least a little disenchanted with her, but not giving up just yet on her. But yeah, this dude is pussy whipped!!

      • FreeSpiritedGirl says:

        I totally agree with you, Annie. He IS a pussy whipped. I have read some where and on Celebitchy too(the archives dating from 2009) that Kristen is the one who snaps all the time. She snaps and screams at Rob all the time and infront of others. Treats him like a crap but he is just so into her that he takes the humiliation. Never talks back to her. I remember the time he returned from Australia, the first photo of them with a fan posted on twitter, the person who took the picture said Rob wasn’t willing but then Kristen called him an azzhole and then he agreed. lol! I guess Rob likes those girls who don’t worship or love him, he likes foul mouthed women who can treat him like crap.

      • Olivia says:

        @annie the way you describe him makes really wonder how he has any fans at all. I mean, why do these grown women idolize a guy with thee characteristics?

      • Mi says:

        You should write his biography,Annie.

      • Olivia says:

        Clearly Annie wants to write his future!

    • Another Ann says:

      For heaven’s sake, do you people believe everything you read? A tabloid completely invented that story about him giving her granny’s pearl ring. She’s never been seen wearing it, and does she really strike you as the pearl ring type? Come on, now.

      • Aunt Pearl says:

        Nah…she strikes me as the pearl necklace type…if you catch my drift *wink* *wink*

  13. Eleonor says:

    I don’t know why but they will make sense as a couple.

  14. LeeLoo says:

    I actually think Rob and Katy would make an awesome couple. I think if Rob wants to keep his career going, he would dump Kristen and hook up with Katy. I think if he stays with Kristen his career will flounder along with hers.

    • Flo says:

      I actually agree with you. I’m not saying Rob should split with Stewart for his career, but the simple fact is, by staying with her they are forever linked to Twilight. I could care less about her career, but it’s certainly no good for his.

    • jaye says:

      Isn’t his career already floundering?

  15. laugable says:

    I saw a fanpic plus some sightings from this dinner on Friday night and Katy wasn’t there. NYPost can be very shady sometimes.

    • MissA says:

      A twihard who was stalking him said that Rob was with his own friends & Katy Perry came along with her own friends ,talked for a while & left. The media just wants to create a story out of nothing

  16. nancypants says:

    I think Rob would look nice with a short beard (Not K.) but he needs to shave the neck area and in that last picture…I think she missed a button on her shorts.

    Anyway, friends/beards/publicity or whatever, I think it’s a mistake for Rob to stay with Kristen and I think he is definitely wrong for Katy who is into bad boys and I REALLY don’t think Rob is a bad boy.

    I think he’s a pretty nice, decent guy who has horrible taste in women and just for the record, I’m old enough to be mom to all of them but I’m not THAT old or anything. 😉

  17. Elly says:

    Don´t think Robert/ Kristen have a monogamous relationship. Her affair was a “problem” for everyone except Robert and their hipster-friends. Maybe this whole Twilight-love was and still is an open relationship.

  18. Tig says:

    @ Olivia- can’t speak for all- but part of Rob’s appeal were his genuinely funny live interviews during all the Twi madness. He’s pretty witty, and self-deprecating to a fault.

    Now, his public de-balling of 2012 has effected him to a degree. He certainly doesn’t moon ( pun intended) all over KS like he used to- and don’t think that is coming back.

    • Olivia says:

      @tig well, there are lots of funny actors to
      Like. His fans seem to be obsessed to more than his “witty” personality. They seem lusty. Onviously his fans aren’t obsessed with his professional life since he hasn’t knocked it put of the park on anything bit twilight.

      I never got the idea that he fawned over her than much to begin with except for when she had a boyfriend. Maybe he likes a challenge.

      • Tig says:

        Well, again, can’t speak for all- maybe some are “lusty”! And, sure, lots of actors are funny. You mentioned you didn’t see why anyone would like him, so attempted to help you on that issue.

        Guess your subtlety was wasted on me.

  19. Nina W says:

    KStew’s Gala outfit is hideous. I read it is Stella MCCartney, it’s fug.

    • Janet says:

      All those Gala outfits were hideous. It looked like a big demented Halloween party. And KStew looked like a zombie as usual with her dead empty expressionless eyes.
