Robert Pattinson ‘reassured Kristen that he wasn’t going to date her friends’…?

I don’t even know what to say about the Twihards at Hollywood Life. Sometimes they get some interesting “scoops” but mostly I just think they just endlessly feed the Twihard trolls and no one comes out ahead. So, unlike the unsubstantiated rumors floating around for weeks, we finally got two solid pieces of Twihard-Proof over the past week. One, Us Weekly said that FOR SURE Robert Pattinson and Riley Keough are hooking up (and I believe Us Weekly) and two, Rob parked his Durango outside of Kristen’s house on Monday. So what does it all mean? Well, it obviously means that Rob dumped Riley and he “misses” Kristen. Take it away, Twihards:

Kristen was understandably upset when she found out that Rob was dating her former friend and Runaways co-star Riley Keough. It’s always tough to see your ex with someone new, but it’s even more devastating when it’s someone you considered a friend. But whatever is going on between Rob and Riley is nothing serious, and R-Patz is not interested in starting a new relationship with someone so close to Kristen, a source tells EXCLUSIVELY.

“He doesn’t want to be that guy,” the source reveals. “He doesn’t want the image of him being that he is stealing the friend in the wake of the relationship with Kristen. Rob did tell people that he reassured her that he wasn’t going to date her friends and make things more awkward between them, because the breakup is and has been awkward enough,” the source says.

“Rob initially reached out to Kristen because he wanted to stop by and pick up the rest of his stuff, but apparently he also wanted to see her,” a friend of Kristen’s tells EXCLUSIVELY.

“He stopped by on the weekend and they both spent some time together, catching up. Kristen was really happy to see him, but I think in the end they were both sad because they still have feelings for each other,” the source reveals. “It’s not as simple as just getting back together. Seeing each other brought up a lot stuff for both of them. For now, work — not rebuilding a relationship — comes first. It’s sad.”

Despite being hurt by Kristen and the split, a source told EXCLUSIVELY that R-Patz hasn’t quite given up hope on their relationship: “He’s told his friends that during a different time and different circumstances, they could make it work.”

As for Riley… “Rob’s schedule is very busy and he is in no mood to start another relationship, especially with someone so close to Kristen,” an insider tells EXCLUSIVELY. “He doesn’t want to be ‘that guy.’ He doesn’t want people to think he is stealing a friend in the wake of the relationship with Kristen. He loved Kristen and always will look at her fondly, but he doesn’t want to be defined by her, and by dating Riley it would only continue the link to Kristen.”

The whole “Sparkles can’t continue to hook up with Riley because MEMORIES and TWIHARDS” thing is interesting. I wonder if he might have an easier time of it if he had chosen to hook up with a lady who looked a little bit less like Kristen? I mean, Riley and Kristen could be sisters and that’s what I find disturbing – not the fact that he was hooking up with one of Kristen’s friends. But yeah, it would probably be a big help for Rob to branch out beyond the circle of joint friends he and Kristen share. Who would I hook him up with…? Not Katy Perry (gross). Not Lily Collins. Not Rihanna (although that sh-t would be HILARIOUS). Not Miley. In fact, I don’t want him with another American girl right now. I think he should go international, like Léa Seydoux or Freida Pinto or something.

Oh, and here’s the latest terrible image from Rob’s Dior campaign, which I officially loathe.

    Only thing worth saying is that this is most probably bs seeing as it came from Hollywood life and the Dior thing stopped being exciting like two months ago.

  2. Leah says:

    Hollywood life is fanfic, they just wrote that to calm down the twihards with re to riley.

  3. Jane says:

    Oh enough already. They broke up-moved on-the Twilight series is over with. Why these two again?

  4. Kemper says:

    I am done with these two. I don’t even care to see their movies I am so sick of them.

  5. Lark says:

    I still think Sparkles and Sulky had a civil break-up and are on friendly-ish terms due to having mutual friends, and that 95% of the tabloid stories around them (excluding some of US Weekly and People) are BS simply designed to gather hits from their stans, anti-stans, and the Robsten twi-hard folks. As far as RPattz’s car, who knows? It’s X17 and they twist things around all the time.

    HollywoodLife is and I don’t buy any stories that come from them. I do think there is some truth to the Riley rumor though because of US Weekly pushing it so hard even with the publicist denial. KStew has to leave for Europe for her next film very soon, and I bet Rob and Riley (or some other girl) may make an official “debut” soon after.

    • Sanaa says:

      I agree. All the drama is manufactured for the Stans and anti-Stans.

    • Another Ann says:

      Agree with everything you said, except I think the Riley rumors are bogus too. There are no receipts. The picture in the truck doesn’t look like Riley, and all the rumors are based on that one picture.

      She continues to hang out with Kristen’s gang of friends, which I really don’t see happening if she was banging Rob. She and everyone else around them has denied it. She was pictured with her ex Pettyfer (ugh) very recently, looking quite friendly.

      And US magazine prints a fair amount of crap too. They print gossip, not investigative journalism. While they are better than some of the bottom feeders like Star, I’ve seen a number of bogus stories from them too.

      • Lark says:

        @Another Ann.
        Oh, I know US Weekly can print a lot of crap like all the other tabloids even if they are “better” than the bottom feeders (as you call them) like Star and Radar. It’s just that the Riley rumor wouldn’t die, even with a denial from her publicist, and that US Weekly had some sanitized version that sounded like PR about them meeting through her Mom instead of Kristen. I thought Rob and Riley may have had something on the DL..but considering there is jack (like photos) you are probably right.

  6. blue marie says:

    ha, he caught her with semantics. date and “rhymes with hug me” are 2 totally different things..

  7. Mia 4S says:

    OK so does Dior’s photographer find him about as attractive as I do? By that I mean, not at all? There have been two or three pictures from a distance or that only kind of show his face. It’s hilarious! It’s a terrible, slow campaign and bless you Celebitchy for covering it.

    • Ally8 says:

      He was beautiful around age 18. Now he’s getting yobbish (English thug) looking fast.

      Also, goblin teeth. And terribly limited actor.

      There should be some kind of acting rehab for former teen stars, where they learn to act beyond glowering (boys) and posing/staring open-mouthed (girls).

  8. aquarius64 says:

    The saga never ends. I thought things would calm down when they broke but apparently the websites miss “Robsten” because that coupledom guarantees hits. Hence the story.

  9. Kt says:

    If any of this is true, it’s just sad. Moving on after being together for years and years is really hard. Even when you know it’s the right thing to do, you still miss the other person. I hope they can both be happy alone.

  10. Luisa says:

    US weekly is a tabloid. All of it is just bs no one knows what is going on.

    • Anname says:

      It is still amazing to me that the Riley story hasn’t died. She has denied it about a million times, there is NO evidence Rob and Riley interact at all.

    • mimi says:

      @ Luisa

      Thank you Luisa for stating what I assumed everyone knew…US Weekly is a tabloid. They have been wrong in the past about Robert and Kristen and other celebrities. Some people act as if they are as respected as TIME magazine! They know putting Robert or Kristen’s name in their headline is going to increase magazine sales and hits to their site. Add Elvis’ granddaughter’s name into the mix and they’re guaranteed even more attention and hits and magazine sales.

  11. Anname says:

    How can you say “I loathe this campaign” when it hasn’t even started yet, except for the official release of 3 images? The rest of the images out there were leaked by journalists from the junket-y thing in June. The campaign doesn’t actually start until Sept, and not even here in the US. I don’t get the hate.
    The official images seem to be getting a good response from GQ, Elle, InStyle, Cosmo, etc…

  12. lindyuk says:

    I can,t tell one way or the other what these images are like because as An name said they were leaked by various journalists so I’ll reserve judgement but I am looking forward to seeing the new interviews with Rob…it’s been a long time since he last gave a really decent interview?he didn’t do any real in-depth stuff for the last Twilight film promo last year which I was quite surprised about. …So I am hoping for good stuff! The man is usually very entertaining!

    • Alice says:

      Ditto! Why being pressed with the Dior campaign when all we have are a few images leaked on twitter as a reminder? Rob’s fans are happy, fashion sites&blogs seem enthusiastic as well, I don’t see any reason for negativity at all. If you loathe it, don’t look, that’s simple.

  13. Quinn says:

    Two soggy Saltines.

  14. Romy says:

    My prediction: If he gets back together with Kristen Stewart then all his fans,who feel so sorry for him for getting cheated on,will finally admit that he is a skinny, weird-faced average looking guy and a bad actor.There is nothing special about this dude.At all.

  15. booboocita says:

    Gotta admit, I wonder if this latest “reunion” is just a way to keep themselves in the public eye — remind folks that they exist, if you will. Neither one of them have movies coming up in the next few months; the earliest we’ll see either of them on the big screen is 2014 (Sparkles’s film The Rover has an American distributor but no release date). Twilight is done. Dior doesn’t seem all that anxious to roll out Sparkles’s campaign, and it doesn’t look like Balenciaga is using Surly all that much, either. What better way to score some free publicity than have Sparkles tease the Twihards by skulking around Sulky’s house?

    • Joe- Joe says:

      That theory is so stupid.Rob and Kristen are already photographed and talked about in the media and the blogs.They’re not Kardashians.He doesn’t need to pull p.r stunts and he does not need more publicity.
      Not to mention that it doesn’t help his image to be linked to Kristen,if anything it hurts him.He has nothing to gain by hanging out with Kristen unless he still wants to be with her.I think it is a mistake but it is his life.

  16. Raymay40 says:

    I think that Rob and Kristen are on the verge of getting back together and that the Riley thing is a cover, that they all are using. Riley to get some attention, and Rob and Kristen to throw people off their tracks.

    • Anna says:

      How can it be a cover when Riley has and is still denying dating him and being seen with him? If it was a cover for Rob and kris then she should be playing along to take the focus off of them.

      • Alice says:

        I think it’s a smart pr move from Riley – her team leaked to US Weekly that they’re dating, then she officially denied it, but everyone is still talking about it and she’s in the spotlight these days. And you can’t blame her, ’cause, you know, she denied, lol))
        And I don’t believe in Robsten reunion, it was shit-stirring from papz site with no real proof he was seeing her. Just a car, that may or may not be his, near the house that may or may not be hers. And the pics of him driving were from another part of LA.

      • Trish says:

        @alice but rileys never even been seen with Rob on her own. She was papped with Kris and her friends at a concert this week and last night. She’s never been seen with Rob.
        And the Robsten reunion, it was her house, the truck she’s always been seen driving was parked outside. The car he was seen driving was parked too. It’s weird that despite paps saying he was there for two hours, they have no pics of him entering or leaving the house.

  17. Trish says:

    That makes no sense when she’s been denying everything the tabs have claimed about her and Rob.

  18. Emily C. says:

    He should go for someone older than him and not in the industry. An art gallery curator or something. Because right now, he’s risking becoming yet another Marmont Hollywood creep.

    • Tig says:

      You are so right! These constant BS stories- I’m surprised he hadn’t been named as the REAL baby daddy in the Simon Cowell saga.

      I also look forward to live interviews- the ones for the WFE promos were great.
