Robert Pattinson & Katy Perry really were in Montecito over the weekend, huh

When all else fails, believe parts of every conspiracy theory out there, no matter how contradictory. The Robsten relationship and breakup is enough to turn even the most sane of us into a raving conspiracy theorist. Yesterday, we discussed the People Mag story about Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry being spotted together in Montecito over the weekend – a story which I believed (I believed that they were seen together, I mean) and which I declared “shady”. People Mag had some shenanigans with the story, temporarily pulling it and then leaving it in the archives, and it was enough to send many Kristen-defenders and Twihards into conspiracy overdrive. And now People Mag seems to have gotten their sourcing a bit more locked down, and they’re doubling down on their original reporting:

How would you feel if Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry showed up at your wedding rehearsal?

“It was extra exciting for Tanya and John,” said a close family member of bride Tanya Mayer, 23, and groom John Rocotta, 26, whose rehearsal at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif., was crashed Saturday by the stars.

“They were just sitting quietly and talking,” the relative told PEOPLE, “and we were on the lawn nearby. We respected their privacy.”

Pattinson and Perry appeared in the main courtyard of the ranch and watched a procession of parents and grandparents before the bride walked down the aisle.

The unexpected guests were the talk of the wedding the next day, Sunday, which was, according to another relative, “all-inclusive,” to represent the diverse backgrounds of the wedding couple’s parents.

“It was a Jewish-Catholic-Hindu ceremony,” the second relative told PEOPLE.

The newlyweds are now off on their honeymoon in Thailand.

[From People]

“It was a Jewish-Catholic-Hindu ceremony” – amazing. I wonder if it reminded Katy of her own Indian nuptials? Gah, do you remember that? Goodness. Again, I’m taking this People story at face value – I think Rob and Katy were there, I think they were together, I think they watched the wedding, and I think they’re probably hooking up. I also think – conspiracy! – that Katy has been trying to climb on Rob for a while. It’s just a vibe I get, I have no actual evidence.

But! There’s a wrinkle. Us Weekly reports that Katy invited John Mayer to her Memorial Day party and the two of them were looking cozy. Gross.

For Memorial Day 2013, Katy Perry kicked off summer with a few good friends — including John Mayer. Two months after their second breakup, the “Shadow Days” troubadour, 35, was among the guests at Perry’s brand-new Hollywood Hills home on May 27 for a barbecue bash, Us Weekly can confirm.

Whether the reunion signals a full-on reconciliation for the pair remains to be seen. “They seem to be back together — or back together-ish,” one observer tells Us of Mayer and Perry, 28. “They were very flirty and having a really good time together. They have good chemistry.”

Adds another witness: “They were definitely friendly.”

Other revelers for Monday’s party included Girls star Allison Williams and boyfriend Ricky Van Veen — who double dated with Perry and Mayer at the Grammys in February — plus Mindy Kaling, BJ Novak, 2 Broke Girls’ Beth Behrs, Raising Hope’s Shannon Woodward, plus actresses Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome.

Us broke news of the pair’s second split in mid-March; the twosome began a casual romance during summer 2012 and briefly called it quits in August before reconciling that September. (The “Teenage Dream” singer and Russell Brand finalized their divorce in early 2012.)

“It’s not over until it’s over,” another confidante told Us in March after Perry and Mayer’s second split. “You have to see how things play out.”

[From Us Weekly]

Again, I’ll just take it at face value. I can accept that Katy and John were probably acting flirty together at her party because why not? Katy is a single girl, she can hook up with John Mayer (barf) and Rob Pattinson within the span of the same holiday weekend and I won’t throw shade at her. As for the lingering conspiracies and whatnot… let’s do bullet points:

*Were Katy and Rob hooking up this whole time? I dunno. My gut says that Rob and Kristen were having lots of problems for months, and I could definitely see Rob falling into bed with Katy a few times.

*Is Katy “the reason” Rob and Kristen split? I doubt she is “the reason” but I now think she could have been “one of many reasons why they split”.

*Are Katy and Rob for real? See: the Mayer situation. My take is that Katy is single and enjoying herself. Maybe she wants Rob for the long-term, but she’s not rushing it.

*Does Kristen feel betrayed by the Katy situation? Perhaps. But what’s good for the goose…

    They’re both single. Carry on….

  2. Eleonor says:

    Let’s see:
    Katy smiles,takes shower and has a beautiful rack. I bet for a guy this could be a nice change.

  3. LadyMTL says:

    Good Lord. Why can’t Katy and Robert just be friends? I have men friends and they’re just that: friends.

    Seriously, this whole Robsten thing is getting dumb (or dumber). Can they just go away now, please?

    • Apples says:

      When you’re famous, your circle tightens incredibly to only a small few that you can trust, especially in the Hollywood crowd. I don’t see either of them risking a years long friendship just for a hookup- as much as I would enjoy the potential gossip craziness that would follow.

    • Liv says:

      I think they were there as friends. They don’t want to deal with the dating rumours, so their publicist contacted People to delete their report. Katy’s rep, who’s also Kristen’s rep (Lainey pointed this out), then published her reconciliation with John Mayer, so that Kristen doesn’t look like a fool and they all don’t have to deal with the media frenzy.

      My guess ;-)

      • Apples says:

        Exactly. I meant to add that other reports DO have them there but, with a group of friends including her mother who lives nearby.
        (Katy likes hosting dinner parties, etc. Seems like it would be easier to do at a highly rated restaurant and just pick up the tab.)

    • Annie says:

      Hot people are never just friends. Just sayin’…

      • ? says:

        Not true. This is going to sound so arrogant, but I am an attractive person, I even did a little smattering of modelling for fun a few years ago. I have numerous, very attractive male friends. We’ve had plenty of opportunity over many years to hook up and never have. My best friend is a VERY attractive male and a lot of people have a hard time accepting that we are totally platonic. Most of his family and friends assumed that we had something on the side. After seeing us together for a while, people eventually realise that our relationship is just not like that. He is like my brother and I can see that he is attractive, but I don’t want him, and he is the same with me. I’ve slept in the same bed with him on weekends away, big nights out, etc etc and it has never been even remotely sexual.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I think they’re just friends.

      I also think that right now, Rob probably really needs a good friend and somewhere low-key where they can just talk.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree. I have a lot of guy friends, so it always makes me scratch my head when people jump to the conclusion that people are sleeping together just because they are male and female and near each other.

    • Dreamory says:

      Yes because as everyone knows Hollywood is the place for chaste friends and monogamy…

      come on. LOL

  4. Ladybug says:

    That wedding sounds awesome. And that’s all I’ve got.

  5. DanaG says:

    Cool Rob is going for someone who is fun, happy and colourful the exact opposite of Kristen. Good on him probably just a fling for the two of them but it’s about time he had some fun. I think Kristen may find things a little harder she doesn’t tend to endear herself to many it seems. LOL

  6. marie says:

    meh, I don’t care.. Katy likes Sparkles on her boobs, Sparkles likes boobs-it has potential..

    I think Kristen should make a move on Mayer and then they could give Sparkleboobs the 4 finger salute.

  7. Another Ann says:

    The People story was weird. Why would we care what kind of ceremony these unknown people had, or other details of the event? They seemed awfully eager to share their story. Also, it still seems strange that all these people supposedly saw them there, and not one took a picture. Amateurs.

    I’d have no problem with Rob and Katy having some fun. They’re both single. I’m still doubtful though. He’s not the type she generally goes for, and their circle of friends and associates are pretty tight with Kristen’s. Seeing as Katy’s publicist is also Kristen’s, it makes a very sticky situation, were anything really to happen.

    • Annie says:

      I think Katy and Kristen’s PR Ruth is pushing Katy/John thing to kinda cushion the blow for Kristen and not have two clients fighting over the same guy. How do you handle that?? On one hand you have to play the heartbroken but “for now” narrative, on the other, you don’t want one client to be the pain in the ass of another client. You don’t want one client make the other look bad.

      If Katy wasn’t her client we would be getting more woe it’s me stories, like how Kristen always had suspiscions, how Kristen is heartbroken for the double betrayal. Anything to drag Rob under the bus.

    • Nina W says:

      I grew up in Santa Barbara and as a local the etiquette is to not photograph or harass celebrities in anyway when you encounter them around town. It’s considered really gauche to whip out the cell and snap photos or approach the celeb and ask for an autograph or whatever. I can see none of the wedding people bothering them, it’s an SB thing.

  8. Adeli says:

    “I could definitely see Rob falling into bed with Katy a few times.”

    Err, when would this have happened, Kaiser? Before he left for Australia they were still in reconciliation mode. Rob’s only been back from Australia for 2 months. So by your estimation, he would have to have fallen into bed with Katy immediately upon his return. That makes no sense.

    Whatever may or may not be happening between Rob and Katy NOW, has nothing to do with why he dumped Kristen. Obviously the relationship must have been strained since the reconciliation, but I really don’t see Rob as the type of guy to jump into bed with somebody else if he’s having problems with his girlfriend, even if he had the time, which he didn’t.

    IMO, he tried to make it work since he had invested so much into the relationship over 4 years, but he gradually realised that it was over for him. Maybe there was an incident that pushed him over the edge, if reports about him being very angry with her are true. It’s interesting that Gossip Cop hasn’t debunked the story about Rupert and Kristen texting each other. Usually they debunk all kinds of ridiculous rumors around these two. But not a peep about that story, which means it’s probably true. I can totally see Kristen thinking it’s no big deal to stay in touch with Rupert. She’s real and honest like that.

    So glad Rob finally woke up to what a selfish, immature brat she is.

    And FTR, if he wants to get over his heartbreak by motorboating Katy’s boobs, I say go for it!

    • Annie says:

      Yeah. Rob left pissed off. No way it has anything to do with another woman. Something set him off. And he took his crap and never looked back.

      We have to remember that what she did was the catalyst for this relationship to go to sh*t. He was all adorable and lovey dovey at Cannes and two months later she’s mini coopering some old guy.

      No matter the gossip, we all know that’s the reason.

    • Nicole says:

      Totally agree with you. Katy is Rob’s friend and they are far too important to each other IMO to risk it all on a casual hook-up. They would never break cover romantically unless they were both sure it was for keeps and TBH I think they both know they are too different for that to work. I’m fairly certain Rob is single just now and will want to stay that way at least until MTTS. HW Lies says he wants a blonde. Is there a blonde on the MTTS set?

      • The Orginal G says:

        They may of course be just friends. Fine. But, I really think you are all naively overestimating how hard it is for two people who want to get together to do so. When lust is in the air, it’s sooooooo easy.

      • Nicole says:

        It’s very easy to get carried away I agree, especially in the early stages, but if you give in to it and it goes tits-up you’ll very likely lose the friendship. Not everyone can handle having a close friend of the opposite sex but I do get the sense that Rob can. And the longer and deeper such a friendship survives the more you have to lose by letting it get sexualised, unless as I say, you both think it’s for keeps. Eventually, the parties grow to love (and I use the word advisedly) each other so much they protect themselves and each other by more or less treating each other like brother and sister. Basically they become too important to each other to put the relay on the line, when they both sense it would never last as a romance.

  9. Kelly says:

    Hey they are all single. Rob needs to get out of Whoredom LA. Good for him that he’s busy all year. Rob, move back to London, you need to get away from the crazies.

  10. Lou says:

    I still think Rob and Katy are just friends, but if they’ve hooked up recently, I don’t see anything wrong in either of them having a bit of fun. God knows Rob deserves it, after being with sourpuss Stewart as long as he has. I don’t see them in a relationship, but friends with benefits, perhaps.

  11. Lamb says:

    I do not like this coupling. Rob seems relatively shy and wants to live a quiet life while Katy Perry is all “I’m HEEERRRRRREEEE!” with her boobs and glitter. Just no.

  12. mkyarwood says:

    I have no opinion. He deserves to have fun after the mess with Soon To Be Nobody Stewart.

  13. Talie says:

    I think these two would be so interesting together…unexpected pairings are the best.

  14. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    I don’t believe it. Show me the pics.

  15. Tessa says:

    No, seriously, they’re friends. They have been friends for like five years, and have hung out hundreds of times. They hung out a lot after the first breakup. She’s his go to person to hang with whenever Kristen went out of town. They like to spend time together. They’ve never been romantic before, why now?

  16. Vee says:

    I think they are just good friends. But if it is more, great. They are single and should be having fun.
    Love Rob, love Katy both cool, talented people.

  17. Tig says:

    Can’t wait for the KS defenders to arrive en masse with the “Katy is a back stabber/Rob is terrible” tirades. After almost a year of unmitigated misery courtesy of KS, let him have some fun with whoever.

    Also, don’t get the shade of them watching an outdoor wedding! They are fun and this one sounded really great.

  18. Anname says:

    I think Rob and Katy are just friends, no hook ups or anything more.

    Actually, I think Rob and Kristen aren’t quite done with each other yet. We may see them attempt to reconcile more than once. They were so intense together, and we don’t know how long the break up process has been going on. Unfortunately, if that happens, the drama will be played out in the tabloids as usual.

    • Annie says:

      I honestly feel like it’s 100% over. They both look angry, I don’t care how much Kristen fake-smiles. The fact that she needs to be seen smiling and not wearing any of his stuff so shortly after the break up shows that she’s in a very aggressive mood. And not in a peaceful place. It just seems hostile to me. Or like, ok you wanted to show people you packed and left, here’s me showing them I’m not missing you or wearing your ring.

      She never took off the ring and necklace. Even after he stopped taking her calls last summer.

      It pretty definitive to me that even their PRs are battling it out. It was a break up and it was ugly!

    • Deidra says:

      @Anname Stop it, please! They seemed off and distant toward each other all the time after the cheating scandal. You can go and ship someone else, let Rob have his life back!

    • Nicole says:

      I hope that doesn’t happen unless they really think they can make it work. Another makeup-breakup wouldn’t do either of them any good. Bottom line is Kristen cheated. It’s a huge ask to expect a guy to forget and commit to her after that. I think Rob thought he could and then realised slowly that he couldn’t. Don’t know what the final straw was (Rupert texting maybe?), but the glue holding them was already so weakened that it wouldn’t necessarily have taken much. Moral of the story: if you love somebody, don’t cheat on them…and, if you’re still stupid enough to want to risk it, don’t under any circumstances get caught!

    • troyer says:

      “intense” and Robsten don’t go together. Only intense thing about them was their rabid fanbase.

  19. Aria says:

    Katy is definitely an upgrade! And she looks like she baths and washes her hair on daily basis.

  20. yeah right says:

    I’m not into the girl on girl hate but I will say that this is the second time that Katy has dated someone who had a relationship with a friend of hers; First Taylor S and John M. and now Kristen. It at least says to me that the friendships weren’t a deep as they looked.

    Honestly this has become tired and it’s obvious that this situation isn’t merely black and white. Kristen isn’t an all around the evil unwashed villain and Rob isn’t a prince.

    Plus the digs at Kristen being unkempt and Rob finally landing a girl who showers is silly because Rob looks just as worse for wear as Kristen. The only difference is that he’s male and men are allowed to be multifaceted whereas women are only allowed 2 or 3 options.

    • Nicole says:

      Katy isn’t dating Rob or sleeping with him, I’m fairly sure. She was friends with him even before he met Kristen and if they were gonna do something they’d have done it by now. It’s a smear to take the heat off Miss Stewart who would otherwise look like the sole culprit in the ruin of Robsten. I agree the stuff about Kristen being unwashed is crap and both Rob and she are scruffy as hell in everyday life but probably perfectly well-washed for all that. Kristen’s problem, though, is that she got caught cheating, holed her relay with Rob below the water-line, lost him and now desperately needs to rehab her rep. Unfortunately for her, Rob comes across as a very nice man both in interviews and anecdotally, so trying to cast shade his way isn’t very effective without real proof and the unsubstantiated dirt her team are throwing at him just now tends to bounce off.

    • Tig says:

      Sorry, have to disagree with the unwashed comments. Either her hair/scalp produces oil at a rate unheard of in a 23 yr old, or she simply doesn’t wash it. Maybe it’s bad extensions, or wearing the b’ball cap all the time, but most pics of her- outside of RC- the hair looks foul. And, pls, the choice of attire for her roadside tryst?

    • Patricia says:

      The first person who is not in denial! I agree with you.
      The rest see Rob as Edward, he is unable to be with someone who does not Bella. I think he comes messing with Katy for some time, I think they played before going with Katy Russell, KS was in London, he chose to stay here partying with Katy and riding in the car with Sarah, do not go to London with his girlfriend ? Please. I may be delusional, but I think the betrayal of KS was not the first, that was the first time he was caught, that neither of them were in love, as we all speculate. My boyfriend and I are not rich at all, but when he won a scholarship for his research, he was facing a flight of seven hours to see me for two days, Rob and Kristen were months without seeing each other, lack of money? I think it’s weird. I’m going to my bunker, I’ll need protection.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree that IF KP and RP are hooking up, then that is shady on KP’s part. You don’t hook up with your friends exes!

  21. MojoRising says:

    Katy and Rob have been good friends for YEARS. Why does it have to be more than that?

  22. gogoGorilla says:

    I hope this is true, if only because these stories bring out the worst, most hilarious, most hysterical comments. I especially love when stan commenters start breaking down timelines and such just to show us why we’re all wrong. Robsten 4eva! LOL.

    Seriously, though, I hope they are all sharing penicillin. John Mayer. Blech.

  23. Mary says:

    I reckon they really are hooking up and it’s the best first decision of Robert to do post break-up. Katy is untouchable to Kristen’s PR because they have the same. If not for Katy, Rob would have been vilified by now. This would not last but good for you Rob. He gave that relationship another chance but it didn’t work. He has every right to move on. As for Kristen, she should get her crap together or end up like another waste of space.

  24. c says:

    get it katyyyyyy! if she’s hittin’ both of them, color me impressed.

  25. ctkat1 says:

    I can see either- they have been good friends for a while, and he’s going through a breakup, so it’s not unusual that he would want to go away with a friend/friends for a little break.

    And I can also believe that two attractive, single people who have the basis of a good friendship might also be hitting it, either casually or at the start of a new relationship.

    We’ve all seen how Katy dates/handles being single, but we’ve never really seen Rob be single for an extended period of time, so who knows if he is a relationship guy, a hit-it-and-quit-it guy, or a casual dater…

  26. shannon says:

    Rob and Katy crash a wedding and yet the relatives/guests are respecting their privacy? what a joke.

  27. The Orginal G says:

    Seriously, Twihards are ridiculously bloodless. They make it sound like Rob’s a 14 year old girl, not a grown man.

    Do you know how guys get over a break-up? They get laid. And if the guy is a rich, handsome movie star,+1000 laid.

    • onestar says:

      Word ^^^^ I love Rob and that shy unsuspecting charm he has is what made me like him from the beginning. But I think people tend to forget that HE IS STILL A MALE. And we think we know him but there’s so much more about him that we don’t know. Just like we all thought there was NO effing way he’d take K back after her cheating cause his views on marriage, family and love. He is male and no matter how nice they are they still think with their peen 98% of the time. But I also think its totally plausible they are legit friends. They have been for years. But they’re both single and if they think can handle putting their friendship on the line for some sexy times, who are we to judge? Have fun Rob, date like crazy, get it out of your system, then find a good girl to settle down with.

      • The Original G says:

        Did Rob really take her back after Rupert? They did PR appearances to make it all look nice. They lived apart and she didn’t even visit him on location. Being physically apart speaks volumes.

        Rob and Perry could well be friends, put the persistent need to paint him into some emo sexless gauzy picture, being healed by some celibate hand-holding with sad chicks while they flea market and in groups is silly.

        He’s not Edward. He’s going to be banging someone soon if not already and for some time.

      • TinyPixie says:

        Most of the Pattinson fans on this site seem to fall into this. That he is some perfect, asexual, emo 14 year old girl. They all ‘know’ him, his thoughts, feelings, motivations. He’s their BFF.

      • Anname says:

        You don’t have to be an emo 14 yr old to be a decent guy. Rob hooking up with Katy, considering she has some type of friendship with Kristen, wouldn’t be the greatest thing in the world. I don’t think he would go there, NOT because I think he is some sort of chaste perfect being, but because he may actually be a good guy and is in control of himself. There are plenty of other girls out there other than Katy Perry.

      • Tig says:

        I don’t think that just bec one doesn’t think they are screwing like bunnies equates to one thinking Rob is a sexless eunuch. I think it’s 50/50- more power to them if they are! But can see where folks would be thinking he is taking it slowly- and not necessarily with just KP.

    • Annie says:

      Yeah his fans think he’s some pure, chaste man. He’s a guy. He WILL get laid to get over Kristen. He will get laid a lot.

      • Flo says:

        Lets hope so. He’s a 27 year old guy, who’s been in a long term relationship for most of his twenties – he has a lot of catching up to do. I don’t think many people would blame him for sowing the ‘old wild oats’. He’s going to have a bevy of women lining up, only too happy to help. Hope he dates around a bit, there’s plenty of time to settle down.

      • The Original G says:

        @ Anname. Why does not having a relationship with Katy Perry make him more of a decent or good guy? What does Katy owe Kristen?

        Conversely, why would a robust single Rob make him less of a great guy? This fan smothering is stultifying and seems to continue this trend of Twihards to emasculate him.

      • Anname says:

        To Original G:

        1. The “decent guy” would not date a friend of the ex-girlfriend – I think that’s pretty much accepted by most people, especially one week after a 4 yr relationship ends. Seems fairly obvious to me.

        2. Where did you get the idea I care about whether Rob is single or not, or if he is dating other girls? The end of my comment says that there are lots of girls besides Katy Perry, yes? I never said decent guys don’t date/or have “robust sex lives”… don’t really understand where you got that, or how on earth you think I tried to emasculate him by suggesting he wouldn’t jump on Katy Perry.

        3. I have never been a “Twihard” (yet another stupid fandom term). I like Rob, find him interesting -that’s about it. So please stop with the labels.

  28. Rabia says:

    They’ve been friends since 2008 and she has the same publicist as Kristen. I’d think this makes Katy the perfect candidate for casual post-breakup sex partner.
    A lot of people look to get out there and have some fun sex after a big breakup – maybe Rob is no different. But he can’t just pick up girl at a bar…too risky. So he turns to a trusted friend who just happens to have fancied him all along. Seems plausible.

  29. Annie says:

    Oh look. A new Us Weekly story on how HAPPY Kristen is after the break up.

    Desperate x100.

  30. Alexia says:

    If pattison is with Perry it just cements the impression that he has terrible taste in women and he is not anywhere near as intelligent and deep as him and his fans want to make out. Perry is pretty much a bimbo.

    • Another Ann says:

      Don’t be fooled. Katy may put on a bit of a bubbly party girl act, but she’s a very astute businesswoman. Just look at the career she has fashioned for herself, although her singing talent is limited. She has made herself into one of the top popstars in the world, at quite a young age.

      And honestly, what makes her a “bimbo”? She doesn’t seem to be with more than one guy at a time. She doesn’t act sleazy. I don’t really follow her or consider myself a fan, but have nothing against her either. She seems pretty harmless.

      • Annie says:

        That’s giving Katy waaaay too much credit if you think she made everything happen all by herself. Pop stars have an enourmous team of managers, executives, musicians, writers, marketing team, PR team, stylists and agents that create a certain look, sound, image. In no way did she come up with this Katy Perry persona all by herself. She’s incredibly manufactored and I doubt she has any say in anything, much less any real input.

  31. Nerd Alert says:

    Neither Rob nor Katy strike me as the type of person who can’t have casual sex a few times with a friend without it getting weird. In fact, considering she has the same PR as Kristen and is also friends with Kristen but historically Team Sparkles, it’s a pretty good cover.

    So yeah, I think Katy and Rob are hittin’ it as friends, and will remain friends after.

    Either that or he likes a lady confidante, but that’s what I thought Reese was for.

  32. jess says:

    I think They are just friends. She seems to be attracted to douchbags, he seems to like moody girls. I can see her hooking him up with friends of hers. When he was in ny he was hanging out with annie lennox daughter and some others. Annies daughter has been posting pics with him in it on instagram.

  33. Shiba says:

    The f*cked up thing about any of this is that because of sexual politics, Kristen’s career was being impacted while Rob’s was not. Maybe this will get them back to nobody being the “bad guy” in terms of the ticket buyer – because PLEASE. He is not a virgin bride, sullied by K’s dirty dalliance. The whole situation just legitimizes slut shaming, is a big cover-up and should be over.

    • Allen Smithee says:

      I don’t think Stewart’s career should be affected by the cheating scandal, to be sure, but why on earth would Pattinson’s have been? That’s not sexual politics; he wasn’t the one embroiled in a scandal (or the one handling it badly).

      If you wanted to compare the fallout between Stewart and Sanders, her partner in crime, I could understand it, but to suggest that Pattinson should have suffered some professional consequences as the result of her actions, simply because she did, is ridiculous.

      Again, getting caught grinding on her married director by the side of the road in broad daylight just gave folks even more reason to dislike her. Her lousy attitude and reversion to bird flipping when caught out by a pap she didn’t call further cements a poor public image. That’s not “slut shaming”. If and when Rob exhibits similar behavior, expect he’ll be called on it.

      It’ll be over tab-wise when the next “IT” couple come along.

    • Another Ann says:

      Sexual politics?? Kristen’s career was impacted because she had an affair with a married man, and was dumb enough to do it in the open in front of paparazzi. If Rob had boned a married woman in public while he was dating Kristen, he’d have been raked over the coals too.

    • P.J. says:

      I agree, there is a double standard here. Kristen’s a slut but it’s OK for Rob to do the same thing. No problem with Rob being unwashed, but Kristen gets grief for it. In a way I admire her for having the guts to be disheveled, because there is so much pressure on actresses to look perfect all the time–hair, makeup, clothes, etc.

    • Annie says:

      Can we seriously stop with this slut shaming whining? That’s nothing but cowardly victimization. If you’re being called out for your horrible behavior, you don’t get to cry and victimize yourself to make it stop, because at the end of the day, cheating and helping break up a marriage is one of the lowest things a person can do, male of female, and you will be called out for it forever because we’ve all either been there or seen it happen to someone close to us. It’s not pretty. Since the beginning of time, ’til the end of time, here and in China, meddling with a married man, stepping out on your spouse and having affairs will ALWAYS be frowned upon and worth of shaming. She SHOULD be ashamed. Shame is a healthy feeling that makes you question the things you do, like why are you hurting so many people because you’re bored with your rich white girl problems. She should use this time to think about why on earth she had to ruin all the good things she had going for herself instead of refusing to take responsibility and blame everybody. What? People are going to do whatever they want now with no consequence and should expect to be infantilized and cuddled? You must not be living in the real world.

      And it wasn’t the affair per say that ruined her career. It was the bad PR she brings with her. No older actor is safe now because they will be smeared on tabloids like Ben Affleck was for 10 minutes after being rumored to star opposite her. Who wants that?

      It was her damn fault for not only sleeping with her boss but getting caught in the most embarrassing of fashions. A victim she is not.

      So let me see if I’m understanding this properly:

      While dating Rob, Kristen decides to mini-Coop in broad daylight with her married director whose wife and kids she knew (and we have 50+ photos of at least one of their encounters).

      Then, after dating Kristen, Rob hangs out with Katy Perry at a wedding (with not one photo).

      Yet, somehow, HIS career should suffer (for what, I don’t know) but it won’t because of sexism and double standards?

      You Kristen fans are a truly delusional bunch. Your constant defense of her behavior is laughable at this point.

      But thanks for the comment: it’s the best laugh I’ve had all day.

      • Annie says:

        Kristen fans are delusional and disgusting. They want Rob and Liberty to hide and not hang out with anybody and not be seen anywhere, when they’re the victims in this situation. Otherwise, Liberty is a slut and a famewhore, and Rob was a cheating douchebag too.

        It’s just sad that they’ve idolized and idealized someone to a point where they can’t see the kind of person she really is.

    • anon33 says:

      This situation really seems to make people lose their intellectual faculties. HELLO ROB WASN’T THE ONE WHO CHEATED! Why should his career have ever suffered??

      Don’t talk to me about feminism either-not only did I earn a degree in it, I am also a survivor of domestic abuse and rape, so believe me, I’m a feminist.

      What I am NOT is an APOLOGIST. Kristen cheated publicly and got caught; Rob didn’t, no matter what “sources” may say otherwise happened “behind the scenes.”

      And for the last time, THIS IS NOT SLUT SHAMING. Fuck as many people you want-who the hell cares? I sure don’t. But when you fuck someone who is married, and has children, and you KNEW THE WHOLE TIME? You can’t even claim that the other person deceived you? I’m sorry, but that’s just not right, no matter how you try to color it or excuse it. It has absolute fuck all to do with sexual politics.

      Now, if you want to talk about the larger cultural implications vis-a-vis how male celebrities are viewed after publicly admitting infidelity vs. female celebrities, knock yourself out. But on a micro scale, Kristen did wrong, and she was served karma by the universe. As it should be.

    I don’t care about the Katy Perry stuff, I’m way too busy drooling over those pics, damn he’s so gorgeous !

  35. drea says:

    Just a theory… If we were to believe a certain blind item out there, Rob and Kristen getting back together was just for show. Supposedly, the reunion was meant to last until a little after the release of the final movie DVD. Terribly cynical but somehow, plausible, no?

    So if we were to run with this for a bit, then there is no “OMFG Katy broke RobSten!” angle. I remember reading that Katy is one of Rob’s good friends from way back (via Shannon Woodward and Andrew Garfield), so I assume she would know about any such arrangement, no? So my guess is that IF (that’s a big IF) Rob and Katy have been hooking up (casually?) recently, it’s no big deal. Everyone in their circle, including Kristen, probably knows. I mean, weren’t they in Montecito with a group of friends?

    So that’s my theory. Unprovable and some would say far-fetched, but so is almost everything else that’s been written about this “triangle.”

    • Dana says:

      To everyone who believes in the contract/PR relationship: How do you explain the photos of Rob with the trash bags moving out? That’s not his style at all, has never done something like hat. It can be explained if he was really angry and hurt, because of something his love Kristen did. But if everything was just a contract?

      • perforatedcover says:

        I have no idea whether these two were real or PR. Having followed these stories, I agree that the truck move was not Rob’s style.

        However, I do think he did the truck move on purpose. As soon as People mag said, “They’re done”, E News ran the “Don’t worry Robsten fans, they’re having issues but they’ll still live together for the dogs” story.

        That’s when we saw the Rob in the truck pics. Whether Robsten was real or PR, those truck pics were Rob saying “This sh*t is over. I’m out and so are my dogs.”

        If the PR story is to be believed, then the contract expired and they were supposed to end amicably. But when someone’s PR decided to instantly start up the “No, they’re not totally broken and they’re living together for the dogs” BS, Rob was like “Nope. I’m not playing this game anymore” and made sure he was seen moving out. That’s what I think.

        Would Rob have made such a show of moving out without that ridiculous (and instantaneous) E News story? Who knows, but whether real or PR, his intent was clear. He’s done with Robsten and its endless drama.

    Mayer is manipulating Katy, and trying to make himself look like a good guy. He’s a sleazebag.

    Personally I think she’s obnoxious, but she deserves better than that.

  37. Marybel says:

    C’mon, Rob. Katy is so K-Mart.

  38. TOPgirl says:

    Yuck, I think Katy is gross! Rob will really regret it!

  39. Thesab says:

    Rob & Katy have been friends since before Kristen was his GF or she became friends with her assistant. Rob & Katy have a friend in common (SW) – they’ve attended her bday parties for numerous years & have been papped doing so even before KS was in the picture. YouTube is your friend, use it & note the dates.

  40. cheeve says:

    Don’t care about the Katy-Rob-Kristen thing, but how awesome that Lindholme & Micucci (aka Garfunkel & Oates) were at the party! Love them & loved seeing their names here!

  41. Dreamory says:

    Just friends my ass..

    because that’s what hollywood is known for.. truth, chaste friendship, and fidelity in relationships. LOL!!

  42. Lady_Luck says:

    Well it makes Katy look like a bit of a fast, ruthless predator. But then again, tell you all something u don’t know, right??

  43. Elizabeth says:

    Is Katy getting paid for all this action?? She makes Heidi (the Hollywood Madame)look like the Virgin Mary.
