Katy Perry & Robert Pattinson were looking ‘cozy’ at the Sunset Tower on Saturday

Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson have literally been friends for years. I remember covering stories about the friendship back when Robsten was forever. I don’t know how Katy and Rob came to be so close, but it really has been a while. Katy was absolutely on Team Rob when it came to Rob and Kristen Stewart’s breakup too – Katy was one of the first women he was seen with after Kristen cheated on him. Of course, it’s more than possible that Katy and Rob hooked up at some point, or that they even dated for a short time, very quietly. But whatever happened between them, it seemed to be mostly about friendship. Which is why I’m not buying this:

So, Katy and Rob went out to dinner on Saturday night. They went for drinks or food or both at the Sunset Tower Hotel and now TMZ claims that they looked “super cozy” and it might have been a “possible hook up.” Keep in mind, Rob and FKA Twigs are still very much together, at least they were the last time anyone checked. Just a few weeks ago, Rob indicated as much in his Howard Stern interview. Twigs was with Rob at Cannes this year too. Of course, TMZ also notes that Rob and Katy were with “a few other people” but “when the pic was taken they clearly broke off from the crowd.” TMZ has heard rumors that Rob and Katy “started dating after Katy split from Orlando Bloom.” I say… no. I say they’re still just friends.

… Of course, now I am worried about Twigs & Sparkles. They’re kind of my favorite couple these days.

    Doesn’t he know her through Andrew Garfield, who once upon a time was dating her bff Shannon Woodward?
    That would be my guess anyway.

  2. lunchcoma says:

    I’m not seeing anything other than friends catching up.

  3. Luca76 says:

    They have a brother sister relationship and every once in a while the tabs see them being cozy and think they’re doing ‘it’. I highly doubt anything is going on.

  4. Dusty says:

    Nothing against Twigs, but I’ll be the first shipper in line when/if they end up together. They’ll be such a cool couple, they’re both seem fun to be around! Their friendship has been tested over the years and they always seemed to care for each other… such a rare thing for people in the entertainment business, I wish them the best.
    P.S. Rob sounded rather unsure about his future with twigs in that Howard Stern interview, yikes

    • Kristen820 says:

      See, I totally disagree. I think KP would be a downgrade back to the teenybopper persona that he’s always said he wanted to escape. Twigs elevates him, and gives him some depth IMO.

      • Dusty says:

        I don’t know how twigs elevates him ’cause in the real world no one knows who she is. And no matter how ditzy Katy looks she proved to be a good friend to him, they can have a solid relationship if they put some effort in it.

      • G says:

        I also don’t think that Twigs “elevates” him. Mostly because I don’t think that dating a particular person can elevate or give depth to anyone. It can give the appearance of it, maybe, but that hardly seems worth it and I don’t think Rob is the type. He does seem to have a lot of creative respect for Twigs, and they probably have a strong relationship.

        I don’t have a horse in this race, but Katy seems a lot more fun and down-to-earth than Twigs, and not just because of the difference in their music. Of course, different people want different things out of their relationships. Judging by Rob’s dating history, he seems to seek out self-styled ‘artistes’ over best friend types.

    • LA Elle says:

      I’m one of the few people who is both not a Twihard and not a fan of Rob with Twigs. Twigs reminds me so, so much of a girl I knew in college, who seemed like the coolest person ever when we met, but after a while, she was just exhausting. Twigs strikes me as that same sort of weird-artsy-but-secretly-super-high-maintance type.

      In comparison, much as Katy loves attention and the limelight, it seems like she can turn off the Diva and have a somewhat normal private life. And she and Rob do seem to have a genuine connection, which can be hard to find period, let alone in Hollywood.

      Whatever’s going on, I just hope there’s no cheating and everyone is happy.

      • Tracy says:

        This so much! It seems the more famous a woman is the more she is hated. So many comments that Katy is a downgrade, must be jealous of twigs talent, etc. etc. We know close to nothing about twigs apart from a bunch of somewhat irritating interviews, but Katy has a lot to be respected for – from her business achievements to activism and charity, she’s adored by many and a great role model. Yes, her private life is a mess, that’s why I, as a fan, am hopeful for her to settle down with a guy who’s a complete opposite of the guys she dated before. Being friends for a decade (since first Twilight, I guess) despite all the nasty gossip is a great thing in itself, and best friends are often the best lovers.

      • G says:

        Couldn’t agree more. I like Rob, but when it comes to who he dates I really don’t have a horse in that race. Maybe I just knew too many poet-types at university, but based on her interviews Twigs just seems pretentious to me, and as though she takes herself too seriously.

    • meowren says:

      i absolutely hate when people say “they’re such good friends! they should get together!” i’m not attracted to any of my guy friends in that way. that’s why they’re my friends and not my boyfriend. would you try to put me and one of my best girlfriends together because we’re “such good friends!”? no. because the attraction has to be there. end rant.

      • magnoliarose says:

        I hate it too. I have guy friends I love and hug all of the time. One of them is one my oldest and closest friends and is straight. We are affectionate with each other and I love him with all my heart but not ever in a romantic way. He is good looking but there is no sexual attraction at all. He’s family to me. We can look cozy too when we go out to eat or something but it is platonic intimacy nothing more.
        That photo looks like two friends chatting that like each other. His arms on the table is a clear signal it is not romantic.

  5. itsmealisonryan says:

    I thought RP and FKA Twigs are engaged? I feel like he and Katy Perry are old friends. I don’t buy much TMZ is selling anyways….trash, trash, trash.

  6. Another says:

    The look cosy – they’re sitting apart from the rest of the company, like, if they were Sparkles and KStew back in the day, twihards would’ve called it “Robsten bubble”, lol

  7. poop says:

    I don’t see anything “cozy” about two of them sitting together…. It just looks like friends getting dinner. God forbid you get dinner with someone–the tabloid will have you married!

  8. ElbaQ says:

    I won’t be surprised if Katy ends up with him, like Sienna Miller moved his friend Tom Sturridge from the only-friends zone when she decided it’s time to settle and needed a decent baby daddy.

  9. D says:

    They are both neurotic messes and there is zero chemistry. Plus Rob going back into dating a super famous woman??? Not happening. The fame thing has finally died down for him i doubt he wants it back.

    He and twigs are never gonna last imo. And katy is gonna find it tough to find a man who can put up with her. I watched her therapy session and she seems like a real mess. I felt bad for her.

  10. D says:

    Kristen and katy are still friendly too by the way. There is no “team”. She even text Kristen to say the romance gossip was bullshit. She knew Rob before Twilight due to Shannon/Andrew so its natural they are still friends. Though they only seem to hang out one every couple years

    Kristen and katy’s assistant tamra are good friends too. Tamra was also friends with Rob

  11. Rose says:

    I dunno, in that interview when he was asked if they were still engaged didn’t Rob say “yeh kindof” …I’m buying it

    • mia girl says:

      Can’t say if he and Twigs are definitely still a thing (I hope so), but I definitely do not believe he and Perry are anything but good friends.

      I took the “kind of” response to be one of two things -
      - He hadn’t been prepared to answer so he didn’t want to say a definitive yes bc they have tried to be private and I don’t remember either of them ever publicly confirm they were engaged. On the other hand if he didn’t answer people would think they weren’t together.
      - they have decided not to get married for a while and so he answered “kind of”.

  12. PunkyMomma says:

    Hollywood is like one big incestious family reunion. Just about everyone has bumped uglies with everyone else at some point in time, in my opinion. So whether Katy and Sparkles are just catching up, or more, NBD.

    I’d be sorry to see the Twigs/Sparkles relationship end – she makes him so much more interesting.

  13. QueenB says:

    I see Robert more like someone who can be friends with attractive women than I see Katy being able to be friends with attractive men. Still there is probably nothing going on right now.

    I wouldnt be surprised if they have an open realtionship. FKA Twigs being monogamous would surprise me.

  14. JJ says:

    Rob and FKA twigs have been drifting apart for awhile, and Rpatz seems to have a habit of leaning on his old pal Katy whenever his relationship fails. It may be nothing or actually a sign that he’s back on the market.

  15. perplexed says:

    Don’t think this story is true.

    Going off on a tangent, I do think she really likes British men.

  16. Francesca Love says:

    I miss her with black hair!

  17. FishBeard says:

    I hope not. They’d literally be the most white bread couple ever. I think he’s aware that FKA’s presence has helped raise his status; she’s the most interesting thing about him. Besides she doesn’t strike me as the jealous type.

    • ElbaQ says:

      Rpattz has always been interesting and quite successful on his own – just ask the super-invested legion of his fans. Maybe pure music lovers who listen to FKA twigs did pay attention to him after they went public with their romance, but it’s highly unlikely they’re about to boost boxoffice of his movies, especially considering twigs music endeavors barely charted.

      • FishBeard says:

        Of course super invested legions of fans are going to find him interesting? Hence why they’re super invested. I didn’t state that it helped the low BO of his post-Twilight films. I don’t think any relationship could improve upon that. You’re right that Twigs wasn’t well-known outside of music lovers, and no doubt it helped raise her profile, but outside of Twilight fans he was considered the definition of bland oatmeal prior to their relationship.

      • Another says:

        LOL, no relationship can turn the definition of bland oatmeal into a respected actor. He’s closer than ever to being finally acclaimed for his acting skills with his new movie (and the previous one with Charlie Hunnam in the lead) and it has nothing to do with any twigs association. Is it a reverse sexism – you’re implying he’s back in the game because he got the right girl?

      • FishBeard says:

        Again, I’m not talking career wise, nor am I disputing that he’s picking up speed on his own for his performances. I’m referring to public image and persona. Before her, like it or not, he was identified as the bland sparkly vampire from a terrible, mainstream franchise that got cuckolded. Her level of artistry and credibility made him interesting by association.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I know what you mean. The very fact that she is not a mainstream entertainer makes him more interesting. I like them together. They are still engaged but he doesn’t like to talk about it because of the nutty fans. (see Benedict Cumberbatch)

  18. Tig says:

    I hope Rob and Twigs can make it, but the pressures on those long distance relationships with both of them working are something. And those pics hardly scream “romantic interlude”to me. More like-”want to grab some dinner and catch up?”.

  19. teacakes says:

    This is some fanfiction nonsense, especially since Katy and Rob have been friends for years even when the tabloids tried to make them a thing. Newsflash, TMZ: men and women can be platonic friends!

  20. Andrea says:

    Rob is too vanilla not bad boy enough for Katy. Fan fiction.

  21. Marcus says:

    FKA Twigs is so stunning and intriguing. And far more talented and interesting than Katy Perry. I don’t see any reason for him to make this downgrade. I vote for just friends!
