Robert Pattinson parties with Mischa Barton & Michelle Rodriguez: bad idea?

Robert Pattinson has a new shag-pad. Is it new though? I don’t keep up with Twihard real estate. I know Sparkles moved all of his stuff out of Kristen Stewart’s house when they broke up, but it was my understanding that Rob already had his own place in LA at the time? E! News says that Rob has just started renting a house in Beverly Hills though – so it’s not like he made some huge purchase, he’s just renting. And it’s a rental in a gated community, with lots of celebrity neighbors. Now that Rob has de-Kristen’d his belongings (bleach helps), he’s throwing parties and get-togethers for all the ladies. Ladies like… Mischa Barton? Oh, Sparkles.

Robert Pattinson is moving on up! E! News has learned that the actor is now renting a new home in Beverly Hills, approximately nine miles away from his previous pad in Los Feliz (near where his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart lives).

Sources confirm that he is leasing a new mansion in an exclusive gated community, where he can count a number of celebrities as neighbors. Rob splashed out some serious dough for his new five bedroom and six bathroom home, which is estimated to be worth $3.5 million dollars.

The French Mediterranean-style home also boasts a sports bar, heated swimming pool, steam room, library and spa. How posh! According to one source who’s visited the new digs, Rob hasn’t quite fully moved into his new home.

“It’s very beautiful, but it does not have a lot of furniture. You can tell he has not lived there for very long,” the source explained. “It is very sparse right now.”

But that hasn’t stopped the 27-year-old from having pals over to hang out. He’s been having intimate get-togethers with a few of his closest friends, and has added a few faces to his usual clique since becoming single.

Among some of the new people in his inner circle are none other than Mischa Barton (who just split up with her longtime boyfriend) and Michelle Rodriguez.

“He is very low-key and just wants to be with friends right now,” another insider tells E! News. “He is extremely cool and laid-back and hasn’t been overly flirting with lots of girls or anything. He just wants to enjoy himself and be with good people.”

And with his new swanky place, he’s got ample opportunity to do so!

The source also revealed that Rob’s not looking to jump into a relationship anytime soon, saying, “He does not seem particularly eager to get a new girlfriend quite yet. He’s just taking each day as it comes and having fun.”

Sounds like a solid plan.

[From E! News]

Mischa Barton wishes. I mean, I can see her coming to Rob’s house because she was tagging along with someone Rob actually invited. I find it hard to believe that Rob called up Mischa and was like, “You should come to my party!” Not so much. But while the Twihards declare a fatwa against Mischa, I’m quietly contemplating the potential with Michelle Rodriguez. Michelle is beautiful, she seems like a lot of fun and she would be perfect for a Hollywood romance. Don’t even start with the whole “she’s a lesbian” thing. She might be bisexual, I have no idea. Michelle has been adamant that she’s not a lesbian. And even if the rumors are just because she’s kind of butch and she walks like a truck driver… well, Sparkles has a type. It works, doesn’t it?

    Not sure I’d describe a “sports bar” as “posh”!

  2. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    Mischa Barton? So 2003, Rob, you can do better. And I know that every woman he hangs out with for more that five minutes is now a potential girlfriend but I don’t think there’s anything going on there.

  3. blue marie says:

    Michelle Rodriguez-yes, got for it!.. but Mischa Barton? dude, no just no.

  4. Norah says:

    She’s kind of butch? Are we looking at the same pic?

  5. Perplexed says:

    Good for him if he’s really moved to these new digs, one of the most secure gated communities apparently.

    • Olivia says:

      The neighborhood may be secure but it seems his new friends have quite the loose lips. For example, I was amazed at the birthday party guests who willingly shared details on twitter, instagram and to sites like Hollywood life. Maybe he moved out of the old house since his fans were orgasming over the ceiling beams in the pictures! Can’t say that this is the crowd I expected him to hang with after the second break up. He was attending events thrown by his A list neighbor, Natalie P, after the 1st break up. Come on rob! Find some quality friends to hang with!

      • Kate says:

        As if Kristen Stewart has non famewhory friends!

      • Allen Smithee says:

        Certainly no looser than those of his old friends (read: Kristen’s friends) who frequently posted pictures of his house on Instagram when he and Kristen were still together.

      • Olivia says:

        @kate so what you are saying is that both Rob and Kristen have famewhorey friends? For some reason, I thought he was supposed to have broken up with Kristen beucase of her famewhore loser friends. This doesn’t seem like much of an upgrade. Certainly there are better people to socialize with than Brett Easton Ellis, fan fic authors and those with lengthy arrest records. I want better. I know, I know, this makes me a bad Rob fan because I am not drinking the kook aid.

      • Lou says:

        @Olivia, lol of course you’re a Rob fan. If you were, you’d know he hosted a party for his friend, who presumably invited Bret Easton Ellis, EL James et al. Where is the evidence that Rob hangs with these people? I believe EL admitted she didn’t even meet Rob. But you knew that already, didn’t you?

      • Olivia says:

        @lou the party wasn’t THAT big, EL james said she didn’t meet him? Is there any interview where she said thisZ, educate me! Well, Brett’s boyfriend must have taken up all his time. He is still milking his Rob connection with more interviews. I still think this is a beneath him crowd. Sue me.

  6. Lou says:

    Oh please! It’s more than likely Mischa planted the story herself. I do think Robs renting this place to get some privacy away from paps and stalker fans. Plus he’s been hanging in BH a lot recently. It seems ridiculous that every women in his vicinity is suddenly dating him, can’t he just be around someone of the opposite sex without her having to be his next gf. Hope he does date around a bit, but I don’t think anything is going on with Mischa.

    • Annie says:

      Yes, I would not be surprised if she crashed a party of his once and now she’s leaking details to the media, while casually reminding people she’s single too.

  7. Eleonor says:

    Mischa Burton is still around?

  8. Shanie says:

    Michelle may even be straight. I dont get why people are so wedded to the idea that she is gay.

    I do think shes too good for Sparkles though. Hes just so……… soft? Aaaargh! I imagine his upper arms would feel doughy to the touch just because of his personality. Michelle needs a gruff Malboro man type not this kid who is liable to break down into tears on the back of her bike because shes going too fast and it scares him.

    • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

      @Shanie +1 I LOLed at the mental image the last part of your comment gave me, I don’t see them together at all, I could see them being friends but anything beyond that? Nope.

      • MegG says:

        I saw an add for a straight to DVD movie starring Mischa tonight and wondered what ever happened to her?

    • Darren says:

      @shanie She is not straight, she dated Kristina Loken, Loken outed them and the relationship ended shortly after. She is Bi or lesbian.

      • meh says:

        I was comin here to say the same thing. She’s also said things like “I’m not a lesbian. Michi (Michelle) likes sausage.” Which I can only imagine a deeply closeted person saying to an interviewer. What straight woman would say that.

    • Annie says:

      Rob actually has pretty nice arms. Huge biceps. Just because he doesn’t show them off it doesn’t mean he has flabby arms. Guy has worked out a lot for several movies. He has muscle definition and it’s YUMMAY.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      “I imagine his upper arms would feel doughy to the touch just because of his personality.”

      Can I add “clammy” to that? His skin would feel similar to that of a salamander.

    • Amelia says:

      Very funny. Yea… he doesn’t look tough enough for Michelle.

  9. Kimmy says:

    Why are people shipping Michelle Rod and hating on Mischa? Is it because Mischa has a druggy past and been accused of sketchy behavior. Its not like Mrod hasnt been arrested for drunk driving and what not and accused of sketchy shit. And both are equally terrible actresses. Double standard, much?

    • Connie says:

      I just cant relate to Mischa types. Socialites fixated on clothes, hair, figure. Michelle on the other hand is just super bad ass. Someone I would love to hang with. I hope that answers your question

      • Doreen says:

        And you can relate to someone who was arrested for assualt on her female rooom mate ( lover?) ?…. ok…
        I’d say if that was a man you wouldnt call her badass just plain bad.

  10. Annie says:

    Mischa Barton goes wherever she smells a party. She hangs out with a lot of Hollywood’s most social people. Kind of like what Lindsay used to do before she got blacklisted from everyone’s home.
    Besides, have you seen Kristen’s company? Nothing but Hollywood riffraff. Unemployed, thirsty, attention whorey riffraff. I take Mischa over any of them, and that’s because mischa has stayed out of trouble for a while, and she had a mental illness. She’s not a criminal. Are we forgetting she was also put under involuntary psychiatric evaluation?

    • mimi says:

      I seriously doubt he’s romantically involved with either of these two. Mischa Barton probably ran to the media with this trumped up story to namedrop Robert. In Hollywood terms, I thought she was completely written off and forgotten…until now. Hard partying, drug abuse and mental illness overshadowed her acting career for the longest time after The OC wrapped for good. She was never able to restart her acting career post her OC days.

      Michelle Rodriguez has always had a well known reputation for partying hard. I read a recent comment from someone who worked with her recently and it sounds like she’s still partying as hard as ever. Her troubled past with the law includes DUIs, numerous traffic violations for hit and run, speeding, resisting arrest, assaulting her female roommate, violating parole by not completing court ordered alcohol counseling and community service which landed her in jail. I remember seeing her name a lot in the news for her numerous run-ins with the law a few years back. Not so much lately, which is a good sign.

      I’m all for second chances and new beginnings for people with troubled pasts looking to better themselves. I hope both these women have wised up and have cleaned up their acts. Robert is a big boy who can decide for himself who he wishes to hang out with when he’s not working. I hope he starts filming Map To The Stars soon so the focus will be on his career and not the questionable people with sketchy reputations and eye raising past behavior he’s been hanging out with these days. I hate to see his acting being overshadowed by all the attention he’s getting lately for his partying companions while he waits for filming to start.

      • Pete says:

        He hangs with the same people as lindsay lohan so am not sure why barton and rodriguez are such a stretch?

    • akua says:

      Yeah, not Rob fan..if you want to know any actress who want privacy but let her friends post picture of your bedroom. there are more picture of her bedroom because of the CJ friend.

      • Original A says:

        Seriously, this creeps me out. I’m a fan, and I have no idea who this person is or how you even know it’s her room. I doubt she had KStew in sparkly letters sketched on her wall. Why the hell do her detractors know so much about her?

      • mimi says:

        Good question, Original A. How do people know what Kristen’s bedroom looks like? I’ve never seen pictures of the inside of her house…only outside pap pics of her roof and back yard and the locked gate that leads to her gated community home.

      • Another Ann says:

        You’d be amazed. There are people out there that must maintain a database of their friends, homes, etc. They can pull up an old pic of one of their houses (say, from the original real estate postings) and compare it to a new pic to identify it. Honestly, some of these people should work for the CIA.

        And people wonder why they keep moving houses. It’s seriously creepy.

    • Original A says:

      Those are some huge assumptions you are making about her friends, and why does KStew have to be dragged into a post about him? Her friends are dirty hipsters, but I know one is Riley Keough, the other some c list indie actress, and Tegan from Tegan and Sara’s long term girlfriend who is a highly successful photographer. She’s barely 23, did it occur to you that the rest may be in school? All I know is that at least three are clearly not unemployed riff raff and are successful.

  11. Eden says:

    I’ll believe any of this as truth when pigs fly. 1-he offered his house for 1 party only for a friend and respected director Nick Jarecki. Michelle R is working with Nick and is his friend but as for Rob friends with Michelle??, that’s the only connection… A mutual friend. Very doubtful. Just a mutual acquaintance, trust me… That’s it. No dating or exclusive. 2-as for Mischa, that’s total hogwash fairytale talk that a Kristen fan who hates Rob spun on twitter and fed to Enews. Nonsense. Mischa dated a distant mutual Brit friend of Robs back back in the day but they aren’t hanging at all. They barely know of each other, theres been no sightings, events, parties, zilch. lets drop that tired load. 3- as for Rob throwing any parties, ummm no. He’s not thrown any. Attended a Sundance screening and a few birthday parties at CM, but the boys been working and in his down time entertained his BritPack friends while they’ve been in LA, hence his visits to CM when he’s off. 3- the possibility of a house rental is plausible but from very untrustworthy sources. And the pics floating around are not from the house. That house is a house hunters show BS image. I know E and Lainey (who’s loving shitting on Rob to help Kristen look less like a homewrecker and downslidong career look better by only picking up trashy Rob stories and nothing he’s doing career wise) but at least have an ounce of truth with the story. If we listened to either of them, he’s dated Katy and Riley too which were both fake fake fake. Kristen’s working and hanging with her strange flock of 8-10 friends in packs. Rob can’t hang out with his director and writer buddies, without it turning into a fake date story. He shouldn’t have to relocate out of LA, his home now, because he’s no seeing Kristen. He’s working, let him have a bit of fun while single. He could be going through one dumb blonde model after the next ala Clooney, Leo but he’s not and people still want to give him grief. Lighten up.

    • Lou says:

      I agree with the sentiment of your comment. A little too much detail for me, but the fact that he can’t hang with mutual friends, without tabs trying to make it something seedy, is pretty ridiculous IMO.

    • Obvious says:

      What about Marcus Molinari…whitewash all you want but Rob ain’t squeeky clean and there’s a common denominator to all these people that no one is mentioning.

      • Lou says:

        Tell me, when’s the last time Rob was spotted out with him? You’re just determined to paint him in a bad light, but the fact is you have no proof and just consistently make up lies. MM was an old friend of Katy Perry, Rob hasn’t been seen out with him since 2008. Stop going from site to site making stuff up.

      • Kt says:

        What’s the common denominator?? Drugs?

      • mimi says:

        @ Lou

        Robert was just at the Bjork concert a month or two ago with Katy Perry and Markus Molinari.

      • D says:

        @Lou Wasnt he with KP and Markus recently? And what about Lindsay Lohans “assistant” that Gavin guy? And the mohammad guy who has been photoed a lot with Lohan. He is also Robs friends. I dont think he has very good people judgement.

      • Lark says:

        I kind of like Sparkles and Sulky and even I recognize the common denominator, sadly. His stans have some image of him being Bambi the deer, though. I love the reaching they are doing to try and disconnect him from Michelle or Markus-both of whom he has been photographed with recently. Most of the regular posters have left these threads so it’s basically the stans and the anti-stans and the twi-hards at this point, which kind of explains the reaching.

        He needs to get back to London pronto and find some friends there.

  12. ernie says:

    I ship Rob and Michelle. She’s hot.

  13. aquarius64 says:

    I’m glad Rob’s moving on with his life after what Kristen has done. He’s probably tired of being tied to Twilight and the romantic fan fiction spun by the Twi-hards. Despite some bashing, some STILL want Robsten back. He’s probably tired of being a slave to that fan base.

  14. Tessa says:

    Lol, Mischa. Did you get invited to Rob’s place once and tell ENews? Old dog, same tricks.

  15. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Can we make the term “ship” go away now? Please?

  16. kingkayski says:

    It’s just a matter of time, we’ll see him partying with Oprah’s change mentor(seizure eye roll)Lindsay Logan,you know Lilo won’t pass a chance to parteeey with the lonely sparkle dong,she can smell free cocaine from here to Timbuktu, lol!

  17. Ginger says:

    HUH? I don’t get why these ladies would be hanging out with Rob but whatever. Maybe they live in his new neighborhood? As for Michelle…she’s not a lesbian? I know I’ve seen photos of her with girlfriends holding hands and kissing. But again, I believe you really can’t put most people’s sexuality into a conveniently labeled box. I just want to say I think Michelle is sexy and I love and accept her as an action star…she is believable and fun to watch on screen. She’s like Gina Carano or Angelina Jolie in that sense. I hate when the action actress isn’t believable and some director gave her the part because she’s pretty. Some people you buy as badazz and some you just don’t.

  18. kim says:

    Why would he have crackheads in your house? Misha was/is a total junkie

    • Cazzee says:

      Let’s hope that’s not part of the appeal. He needs to be careful; having so much money in one’s early twenties is pretty much a recipe for trouble.

  19. Another Ann says:

    I do agree with Lainey’s recent assessment that he needs a friend coach. His old friends from London are fine, and have never sold him out. His new LA friends, however, are a different story. I kinda wish he’d move back to London for awhile.

    • Lark says:

      He needs to go back to London and reconnect with Tom Sturridge and befriend people like Eddie Redmayne. The fact that he’s hanging with a crowd that involves Bret Easton Ellis and multiple people that have had issues with hard drugs is not good. Fly, Sparkles, fly your little sparkly self back to London and leave LA and the Chateau behind:) Seriously though, I honestly hope he leaves LA because the crowd only spells bad news.

  20. Lark says:

    Sparkles needs to go back to London. I wouldn’t think anything of him hanging with one of his new LA crowd (like Michelle), but all of them together sounds shady because the majority have had issues with the hard stuff or the law except Sparkles.

    Mischa with her stints in the psych ward and known issues with hard drugs. I love her, but come on she probably still has some serious issues since all of this was fairly recent. Bret Easton Ellis and his twitter coke debacle. That shady producer who is tight with Lilo. Michelle with the DUIs and assault charges. Markus, who was hanging with him and Katy not that long ago at some concert.

    Like I said, wouldn’t bat an eye at him hanging solely with Michelle but all of them together spells trouble. I know Michelle’s had her issues, but she seems like a cool person and a potential hook up. Still think he needs to leave for London though and reconnect with Eddie Redmayne and those sorts and leave the Chateau scene behind.

    • Claudia says:

      I really don’t give a damn about rob and who he hangs out with… but i love rodriguez and this is the first time I’ve ever heard the name markus molinari. Feed me gossip!! What’s his deal?

      • Lark says:

        Markus is a local LA social butterfly type in the vein of Brandon Davies. I believe he is part-owner of a club and dabbles in bunch of other things. I knew about him way before Sparkles or Katy Perry, the latter of whom is now one of his besties

        He used to and I believe still runs with Lindsay Lohan…they used to be photographed together all the time. Fairly sure he was with her during her infamous Cannes visit a few years ago where she “lost” her passport and later photos of her sitting near some lines came out. A few local LA bloggers used to mention him back in the day, and I think some national gossip bloggers picked up on the local bloggers because it’s been insinuated/said in blind items that he deals coke. I highly doubt that and think that’s just blind item bullshit, but he comes across as a hard partier and considering he used to be attached to the hip with Lilo…probably does dabble in some drugs.

      • Claudia says:

        Thanks, Lark :) I need to google his face now..

  21. Hannah says:

    I don’t understand how you can think a person who was arrested for assault is cool. Mischa Barton had drug and psych issues i feel more sorry for her than anything. But someone who displays violent behaviour with other people is never gonna be cool to me.
