Robert Pattinson & Riley Keough have been ‘hooking up’ this whole time, for real

One month ago (or so), Robert Pattinson was photographed by X17 in LA. He was driving his truck and a lady was in the front seat with him. At first the lady was unidentified, but then some people claimed it was Riley Keough, daughter of Lisa Marie Presley (and granddaughter of Elvis). Riley’s rep went to Gossip Cop and said that Riley and Sparkles were NOT dating. Although now that I’m looking back on it… the rep didn’t deny that it was Riley in Rob’s car. Anyway, some sites went with Gossip Cop’s denial and some sites didn’t. Like, Hollywood Life has been running endless stories about Rob and Riley like they’ve been hooking up this whole time. And guess what? They probably have been.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson might be soul mates in the movies, but in real life, Pattinson has a new leading lady. As revealed in the Aug. 5 issue of Us Weekly, the Twilight actor, 27, has been “hanging out and hooking up” with longtime pal Riley Keough, whom he met through her mom, Lisa Marie Presley.

“She’s the first girl he’s liked since Kristen,” one insider says of Keough, 24, the granddaughter of the late Elvis Presley. “[They're] having a lot of fun.”

Keough, who appeared with Pattinson’s ex Stewart in 2010′s The Runaways, was most recently linked to her Magic Mike costar Alex Pettyfer. (She even sported an engagement ring from the actor for a short time in 2012.)

Pattinson, meanwhile, ended his tumultuous four-year relationship with Stewart back in May, after struggling to get over her July 2012 fling with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. “He really put her through the ringer,” a source told Us after their breakup. “Ultimately, it was like, ‘Either we move past this or we don’t. It wasn’t good for either of them.”

Hanging out with Keough, on the other hand, could be just what Pattinson needs to get his groove back and regain his footing in the dating world. “He’s scared of meeting anyone new,” an insider told Us shortly after his split from Stewart. “So many people are after him for the wrong reasons.”

[From Us Weekly]

I know the Twihards will demand their Twihard Proof of this dangerous liaison, but I don’t have any convincing Twihard Proof. All I can tell you is that from what I’ve seen, Us Weekly has solid sources within Team K-Stew AND Team Sparkles. Us Weekly got the tip that Kristen was fooling around with Rupert Sanders last year, and they followed up and got one of the biggest exclusives of the year. Us Weekly also got some really good exclusives on Kristen and Rob getting back together and their breakup. I’m saying that I think this story is for real. Rob is banging Riley Keough. And he probably has been for at least a month. And when Riley’s rep went to Gossip Cop, it really was some damage control on Riley’s part, because she didn’t want to be attacked by roaming bands of Twihards.

    If this is true the Twihard hate will double because Riley misrepresented the facts.

    • Lark says:

      Twi-hards & tabloids will have to get over it. Both seemed to have moved on. My friend went to a screening at LACMA a few days ago and saw KStew there. Apparently she is super, super skinny in real life and her hair looked clean for once. Anyway, apparently she and Emile Hirsch stuck by each other’s sides for most of the night…Interesting. Maybe they are just friends, but who knows? Both are single. I was surprised I didn’t see it in Just Jared, but then again I don’t read a lot of gossip blogs on a regular basis so maybe it was somewhere else.

      • Jan says:

        I read a couple of tweets that Kristen had gone to support Emile and that they hung out together. AS for Rob, I hope he is banging Riley. They really would look good together and I don’t think she has much drama around her. If I was 20 years younger, I would be standing in line myself.

      • Liv says:

        I will die of laughter if she dates Emile. That would be like the definition of two of a kind! ;-)

      • What? says:

        Since Kristen Stewart is hanging out with Emile Hirsch, does this mean she needs to follow girl code and send a text to Robert Pattinson reassuring him that they are just friends?

    • Annie says:

      Twihards and kstans need to get over it. The craziest fans right now are the kstans. I know twihards who only know they broke up, but are not really following the gossip anymore. The obsessed fans are the kstans. They just don’t want to admit that their lady messed up so bad that she lost everything she had.

      To me it’s very satisfying to see Kristen and Rupert lose everything they had. It’s awesome seeing people get exactly what they deserve. And seeing Liberty and Rob move on to better people is amazing.

      • Denise says:

        Really? People make mistakes. I’m not a fan of anyone mentioned here, but I do know it’s easy to sit on our high horse when we haven’t yet found ourselves in a similar situation. No one ever expects to find one’s self in life-ruining circumstances, you lose your head sometimes.

      • Jen says:

        Really? To me the rob and Kristen break up was sad. He really love her and she got caught up with a charasmatic / creepy older man with a power over her ( HER DIRECTOR ) and was crucified for it. I believe their romance was real and was sad it ended that way.

      • lenje says:

        Emile and Kristen were co-stars in “Into The Wild”, they’ve probably been good friends ever since. A little OT, I always think Emile is quite talented but has been unlucky since the Speed Racer disaster. Looks like he got rave reviews in “Prince of avalanche”. I hope this will be a redeeming point of his career.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      After seeing the 1Direction stan anger directed at the GQ UK, the whole idea of being the focus of crazy fans is frightening! Since Riley is already famous, at least she will have some security protections in place.

    • Jan says:

      Man, those pics of her looks like the girl in Rob’s truck.

  2. Lark says:

    This whole thing is so strange. I thought the Katy rumors seemed more legit than this, but US Weekly keeps sticking to their guns even after her rep denied it.

    She and Kristen and their mutual friends were all papped together eating dinner after Kristen and Rob broke up. I think she and Kristen have been papped together other times, too, and have been friends for a while. I know Gossip Cop is publicist central, but they said something like Riley and Kristen are really close friends and have been for a while and that seems odd for Riley’s publicist to say if the Rob and Riley thing is true.

    That said, I have to admit this US Weekly thing sounds like the publicists are laying the ground for a “sanitized” roll out. Riley and Rob likely met through Kristen, since supposedly they were friends even before they did The Runaways. All of the sudden they met through Lisa Marie? Hmmm. It seems like a less messy version of how they met. Saying they met through her Mom is less messy than saying they met through his ex who is her close friend.

    • Tessa says:

      US seems sure. If they have a solid source somewhere, Riley’s game might be to deny for as long as possible to avoid backlash, and see if the relationship is actually going anywhere, and then re-strategizing if need be. If they break up tomorrow, she’s in the clear. If they’re still together months from now, a simple “Riley wanted to avoid backlash from fans and be sure of the relationship before any confirmation” would appease most people.

      • Lark says:

        IA with you…The fact that US Weekly keeps running this even after her publicist went around town denying it to everyone is interesting. Wording is interesting too..they aren’t saying dating, they are saying hooking if Riley denied dating him that would be technically true and if either one was seen with another person it wouldn’t be a big deal.

        Sparkle stans are going to kill me for saying this, but here it goes. It seems like RPattz has a pattern of finding jump offs who are his ex’s friends. Nikki Reed, Kristen Stewart, and Riley Keough. Riley’s publicist told Gossip Cop that Riley and Kristen were long term and close friends. I guess Nikki and Kristen kissed and made up because I saw something on Just Jared a few weeks ago where she was talking about how much she loved Kristen and didn’t mention anyone else from Twilight. Whole situation is messy though. Kristen can’t get mad because of last year though, so she’ll have to deal.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “Riley’s game might be to deny for as long as possible to avoid backlash, and see if the relationship is actually going anywhere”

        In real life, the beginnings of relationships can be so murky. Like that feeling of do I “like” this guy or do I REALLY like this guy. I can’t imagine being pressured from the outside world, rumors about being head over heels even if you are just getting to know someone. That would suck.

        If she is using that strategy, I don’t blame her.

    • Monty says:

      Riley and Katy Perry rumors make me inclined to believe that KStew and RPattz had an unconventional relationship. I honestly think both these ladies were banging RPattz before the big breakup. I think KStew was either aware of it or part of the fun threesomes. I think the fun has continued without Kristen which is a serious no-no in the threesome handbook.

      For me this would also explain RPattz initial response to the mini cooper incident. The offence was in getting caught rather than the actual mini coopering but then in the end the public humiliation was too much for him. Thats my theory and as always I am embarrassed that I even know who these four talentless children are.

      • Lark says:

        Well that’s what Ted Casablanca always implied, that they had an open relationship. He also implied it was better to have the relationship and getting back together (before their break up) played out in a certain way in public to satisfy the twi-hards and their idea of what the relationship was then have it come out that both were bi and in an open relationship…

        I could see that happening. The Katy Perry line about being proud she didn’t sleep with him…odd and overly defensive. Their whole former relationship was odd way before last year, so I could buy that they used to be in an open thing.

      • Monty says:

        Is Ted Cassablanca still blogging, Lark? Or is this from before he got fired for outing Jeremy Renner?

        Either way, I would believe the bisexual-bearding theory before I buy that King and Queen of the hipsters would ever lower themselves to traditional expectations of monogamy.

      • Lark says:

        @Monty. Ted supposedly has a new job lined up and will talk about it on twitter soon. Apparently Universal owns E!, and Universal was also the one that was releasing the new Bourne film with Renner right before Ted accidentally outed him. He definitely got fired for outing Renner despite what he has said, based on the timing and his departure. I do think he was “paid off” too.

      • CC says:

        LIkely with a time-based non-compete in place as well.

    • Annie says:

      Us Weekly is not Star or Life & Style. But they’re not People either. They will work with publicists but they will not sell out or hush a story if they have good scoop. They have very reliable sources and pretty much everything they print these days is true.

      I totally believe them on this and like you said, they’re deciding how to roll out the story telling people they met through Lisa Marie. We all know they know each other for a while through Kristen. Now people will start wondering if they fooled around before. Like, way before Rob and Kristen had issues.

      If this is true, Rob is really aiming at hurting Kristen. You just don’t go after your ex’s friends.

    • Janet says:

      You can’t trust Gossip Cop on anything any more since they got overrun by hordes of Twihards after Casablanca shut down his web site, and evidently they decided that saying whatever Twihards want to hear beats reporting the facts. At least it generates more hits for them.

      • mimi says:

        @ Janet

        The same could be said for US Weekly. First and foremost, they are a tabloid who do get it wrong many times with not only Robert and Kristen stories but other celebrities too. Robert and Kristen aren’t giving the tabloids much material to work with these days. So, it’s either recycle old stories or trust a bad source with no other proof other than their word. They know any headline with Robert or Kristen’s names in it are guaranteed to sell more magazines and garner more hits to their site.

        Kristen is busy working on her new film and has a new puppy. She’s been papped with a few fans while eating out and at the Joan Jett concert. That’s it. Nothing suggesting a new romance. Robert is on a short filming break from MTTS which will start up again soon in LA. He’s been more visible with his social outings recently, even hanging out with a few female friends but nothing salacious. He even attended a party with a friend with models in attendance but only one picture emerged of Robert and he’s posing with the middle-aged guy who threw the party. Not one flirty picture of him with any of the models even though a lot of pictures from the party were released. Sia, Katy Perry and Riley all laughed off and publicly denied romantic hook ups with him, stating they have a platonic friendship with Robert, nothing beyond that. As for Sarah Gadon, he hasn’t been seen with her since Cosmopolis promotion wrapped last year and those times were professional in nature only.

        Bottom line, the tabloids have nothing salacious to write about. They’re either recycling their old stories or they have false insiders providing false information to them. It wouldn’t be the first time overly invested “fans” with agendas have passed on lies to the media about Robert and Kristen.

    • Delilah says:

      Re: Nikki. I read somewhere that Nikki finds Rob to be a pathological liar – can’t recall the interview nor the Mag – but I think it may have been circa the time she met her now husband – a runner up on American Idol ( sorta has a Rod Stewart characteristic to his voice & singing). But, I digress. In that interview when Nikki was supposed to dish on her relationships in Twilight on set, she made a half attempt at diplomacy in trying to stick to only positives. I call them half attempts because any compliments paid to each member of the cast carried some kinda’ back slap, i.e., saying Rob Patz was devastatingly good looking and she was highly entertained by his storytelling abilities. He could keep going on and on; she loved how she could always separate reality or truth from his ”stories’. Very diggish way of admitting you appraise someone as a liar while they have no idea you are on to them. What she did with her statements is insinuate he was a deceitful heartbreaker. Clearly she was not over it or over him and something definitely happened b/c he did something she perceived as a betrayal. But she did it in such an arguably insidious and cunning manner to dodge any true consequences for possibly tarnishing the ever so ethical, romantic Edward Cullen. It’s a good thing she’s happily married otherwise now that the franchise is over, she does not have to bite her tongue.

      • Jan says:

        Nikki seems to be very happy with her husband Paul. She has had plenty of time and interviews if she wanted to bash Rob. It seems to be over for her and she has moved on with her husband.

  3. Karen says:

    Riley always seems sweet but also like a fun party girl. Its like he’s dating kristen again but where she’s always in a rare good mood

  4. Kemper says:

    I don’t care who he is dating anymore. I think it is time we all moved on.

    • gg says:

      LOL best comment of the day.

    • Steph says:

      Agreed. I haven’t found him attractive in such a long time.

      • gg says:

        I found him odd-looking in that Harry Potter movie where his character gets killed. He looked like he was closer to age 30 than 17. He’s grown into his face a little since then.

    • RPG says:

      Word. Once people finally accept that he’ll pretty much bone anything with a pulse, the world will be a much calmer place.

  5. Launicaangelina says:

    He has a type…

    • Bianca says:

      Seriously. She looks a lot like Kirsten!

    • Kitten Mittens says:

      I was thinking the exact same thing. Skinny. Thin lips. Dynamic, angled eyes. Skin that have never seen the sun. Kristen is going to fade away now. She’d have to learn how to be humble and act if she ever hopes to reach twilight fame again. And Kristen was such a pretty girl in those movies. Too bad

      • Tessa says:

        Tiny nose, pronounced jaw… The list actually goes on. They’re really similar. I find Kristen’s face more interesting in general, but Riley is Elvis’s granddaughter, and the fact that you can actually see a bit of Elvis in her gives her an advantage too.

      • Kitten Mittens says:

        She looks like she knows how to keep a low profile and showers too. I like Rob. After Kristen did a number on him it’ll be nice to see him smiling in future pics rather than sulking like Edward.
        Kristen must be livid she can’t get good roles and Hollywood has almost written her off for good.
        And I wouldn’t be so hard on Kristen if she could act, but she can’t. She can’t be humble either. That too good for her fans and peers schtick got old fast.

      • T.C. says:

        This girl and Kstew could be sisters they look so much alike.

      • Alexis says:

        @tessa but Kristen also looks like Elvis. Obvs they are not actually related, but she has the same look

    • Annie says:

      It definitely creeps me out a bit because they really look alike. Next think you’ll know he’ll be dating Amanda Palmer too.

      • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

        @Annie LOL her name is Teresa Palmer, not that anyone cares obviously lol

      • Delilah says:

        Teresa & Kate Stew bare an uncanny resemblance. It’s very distracting. I was soooo confused watching Warm Bodies. At one point I had to google the cast. Even Imbd cited Teresa as the actress in Warm Bodies, I wasn’t satisfied. I was sure since the movie premiered after the scandal – that Kristen was now going to masquerade as someone else…to salvage her career and get a new lease on life! These discussion on the likeness of this two is not new:

    • ChicagoGirl says:

      I think Riley looks a lot like Rumer Willis, but her nose suits the prominent chin better.

  6. Starbuck says:

    This is so very, very strange. Us Weekly usually has good information yet Gossip Cop has denied this again yesterday. Riley Keough was papped with her ex Alex Pettyfer a couple of days ago. If true, it would explain the infantile tirade the other day. Also, hooking up with the friend of your ex so soon after a breakup says to me that something very ugly happened between Robert and Kristen. That is a revenge move of really spectacular standards. It does seem like a sanitized roll out but then a second denial? Only time will tell.

    • Nicole says:

      Hmmm, yes. Still sounds a bit far-fetched to me though the rumour is very persistent. GC denied it again yesterday, almost in panicky haste I thought, when the story started to resurface, and she was, almost-too-conveniently, snapped with her cheating ex, Alex Pettyfer, a week or so ago. I suppose, if she were really with Rob she would have a very powerful motivation (let’s call it “self-preservation”), in covering that fact up. So OK I have a niggling doubt now but I still think it’s most probably untrue.

      • Starbuck says:

        Agreed. But if true, Sparkles has a side to him that I’m kinda digging. Yes, that’s terrible, I know Lol.

    • Lark says:

      Meh. I don’t see this as ugly or revenge or anything to do with Kristen tbh. People and US Weekly both kept it pretty clean when they broke up. Miley and Liam’s that was ugly and mud being thrown in People Magazine.

      Riley is a hipster plus she is Elvis’s granddaughter. She’s an indie actress and into music. Rob has a habit of making jump off’s of his ex’s friends (Nikki Reed/Kristen/Riley). It makes sense to me.

      • Tessa says:

        His dating pool is also tiny. He says he’s paranoid about dating people because he isn’t sure if they really like him for him or if he can trust them. It leaves his friends, and Elvis’s freaking granddaughter. If anyone isn’t impressed, or couldn’t care less that he’s famous, it’s probably the granddaughter of The King.

      • Kcaia says:

        Tessa, that’s what I was thinking. I don’t think its that he wants to hurt Kristin, I think he’s the kind of guy that likes to be in a relationship, and his circle of friends is small, and so is his trust.

    • Annie says:

      Something really ugly must’ve happened for them to break up for good just like that and for Rob to just pack his things up and leave like he did. No proper moving, using trash bags, taking his dogs, not caring who saw him. I think they are both very angry right now, and if Rob really is hooking up with this girl, then that’s a killer move. Pure revenge. There’s nothing worse than wondering if maybe they had a thing for each other while you were together or worse, wondering if they ever hooked up. That’s a calculated move. And a very cold one. I think Riley is terrified of Kristen if she keeps denying it and even went as far as to be seen with her awful ex. That panic right there is very telling.

      And as much as I can’t stand Kristen, Rob does have a history of hooking up with friends and what Kristen and Rob did to Nikki was pretty heartless. People immediately favored Kristen just because she was the star of the movie and she was ~Bella~, but it wasn’t a very good thing to do, to betray your friend and hook up with the guy you know she was falling for. Nikki was crazy about Robert and he was just hooking up with her to pass time. Fans justified his dick move because she was “a whore who called the paparazzi” and who is calling the paparazzi now and more importantly, who is the whore? Twihards slut shamed Nikki to death when she never did anything wrong, and look who’s living a more stable life now, laying low.

      I don’t think Robert is very nice either. And God knows what went on in that relationship, but the more dirt comes out, the less healthy the whole thing seems to me. And both seem troubled as fuq.

      • l says:

        that’s a lot of assuming. nikki herself said there was nothing going on with her and rob.

      • Shy says:


      • Jay says:

        Obviously Kristen doesn’t agree with you because she’s still hanging out with Riley. If there’s anything between Rob and Riley it seems evident that Kristen doesn’t have a big problem with it.

      • Jen says:

        Nikki 100% knew Rob was in it for a good time ONLY-
        As for Nikki being heartbroken etc..etc…
        I know for a fact she was offering special favors to the skaters during shooting of the Dogtown movie, so it’s not like she’s never been down this road before

      • What? says:

        Sparkles doesn’t seem angry to me at all. He just has a small intimate group of friends and it’s natural that he would turn to someone he knows he can trust to be discreet. Why oh why must everything be about Kristen Stewart and their breakup? He’s probably keeping busy and doesn’t give a rat’s ass about her or her feelings anymore. He doesn’t owe her anything after what she did. Next you’ll be saying Liberty Ross should send Kristen Stewart a Christmas gift so Kristen won’t feel bad. SMH

      • TG says:

        Nikki is so sexy and interesting I wonder why she isn’t in more movies or TV. Those Twilight movies downplayed her looks big time. Too bad her hotness is wasted on some random guy who doesn’t measure up. Well maybe they are happy together though.

    • Janet says:

      Gossip Cop will deny anything that KStew’s groupies don’t want to read. They have completely taken over that web site. Most of them refuse to believe that KStew and Pattinson have broken up.

      • Jan says:

        There are two websites that I know of that are in complete denial of Rob and Kristen breaking up. If you go on them and comment something not to their liking, they will crucify you. They are Robsten Dreams and Rob Pattinson Intoxication, especially the latter, they are living in a dream world. I mean, how can you justify nothing seen of them since Rob’s birthday, but they will have an answer for it.

      • Lady D says:

        “Most of them refuse to believe that KStew and Pattinson have broken up”
        A level of delusion that makes me want to stick close to home.

      • mimi says:

        No worse than the extreme (and psychotic) Robert fans who were members of the nonstens and PRstens, who are still denying Robert and Kristen were ever in a genuine relationship. They formed Kristen-hating websites and secret hate communities that are still spreading lies about Kristen and Robert even after the break up. Why they feel the need to continue their hate campaign against Robert’s ex-girlfriend is a puzzle to me.

    • Jay says:

      There can’t be that much revenge involved or bad feelings if this is true. Riley was at the Joan Jett concert with Kristen and their mutual friends last night.

  7. Jennifer says:

    A publicist’s job is not to tell us the truth. It is to help their clients shape and maintain their public persona. People may choose not to believe this story, but please don’t base it on what a publicist said.

    • gg says:

      Publicists are paid to lie their butts off – that’s why they are called “hacks”.

    • Delilah says:

      PR is about image. A good agent knows how to be an effective spin doctor. Depending on the moment’s prerogative – it could be to keep the client’s name & face in the papers so to speak…or reinvent…or protect…

      Take your pick. Rob who has no PR chooses to keep us guessing; Riley needs to cover her ass & maintain whatever privacy; Kristen needs to stay relevant. By all accounts everything we are hearing & seeing demonstrates good PR at work…

  8. Jennifer12 says:

    I think Rob and Riley are attracted to each other and seeing where it will go. Riley is a very pretty version of Kristen; Kristen isn’t unattractive, but she is not a beauty, and Riley is. And she seems more mature than Kristen.

    • Jan says:

      All I can see of Kristen now is hiding behind that dumpster gate telling the pap that he doesn’t deserve to breathe the same air as she does when she could have just waited and stepped out into the car when it got there. She sounded like a brat stamping it’s feet, throwing a tantrum.

  9. Sisi says:

    There’s a typo in the title.

  10. blue marie says:

    meh, they’re both pretty people. good for them.

  11. Guest says:

    Riley was with Kristen’s friends at the Joan Jett concert last night. One of her best friends CJ posted a picture if Riley. CJ has defended both Kristen and Riley in this mess. I think he is a good guy and I doubt he and Kristen’s other friends would be hanging around Riley if she was sleeping with Rob. Kristen was also sighted last night at the Joan Jett concert so I am sure she was hanging out with Riley, C J and their friends. I highly doubt Kristen would be friends with Riley if Riley was sleeping with Rob.

    • Annie says:

      Do you really trust anyone in that circle? They’re all hanger on unemployed losers who love to be associated to someone famous. I have no trouble believing they are often the tabloid sources. Look at them. They don’t work. They need money.

      • Jennifer says:

        Great point! There are so many leaks from that circle; not a very loyal bunch, are they?

      • Delilah says:

        If you’ve graced the silver screen or closely linked with someone else who has…and those endeavors paid off landing you or your connection on the grid or more specifically Forbes list highest paid whathaveyou and people know your name, then your honor, I have to conclude you are not a ‘loser’ – at least by the standard of what it means to be successful & relevant. This is not to say those are the only standards on which we are measured. But let’s not call millionaires losers in need of employment for income. Let’s be more specific so our positions sound more rational. I rest my case.

    “He really put her through the ringer,”

    Really, Us? No money for copy editors?

  13. Shelley says:

    This chick is just a clean ginger version of K-Stew. i hope this means that R-Patz will start washing his hair…a girl can hope

  14. Guest says:

    Also wanted to say, Rob has been hanging out with Sia, Michelle Rodriguez, Hollywood Models, Caitlyn Cronenberg and her friend who Rob kissed in Toronto, Katy Perry, her assistant Tamra ( former Kris friend) , Gina (Kris friend) and Gina bf Cheese something or other, Jamie (who is dating Dakota Fanning) and his friend Nick Jarecki, since the breakup. At no point have Rob and Kristen been hanging out together . It seems to me that Rob is on a mission to get hooked up with as many girls as possible. He is very much putting himself out there that he is single and available. I am sure their are many other women who he has hooked up with in the last three months too that we don’t know about. It’s not rocket science, it’s common sense.

    • Anname says:

      So if he is hanging out with new people, he must be sleeping with someone… I don’t get that logic at all. I think he is paranoid about his privacy and is not going to hook up with anyone in that circle.

      • Annie says:

        Oh stop lol. That guy is not paranoid about anything anymore. And what privacy? He agreed to several photo ops with Kristen when they got back together. He doesn’t care.

      • Anname says:

        Annie, I know you love to find the worst in everything and enjoy telling us all how horrible everyone is, but I don’t agree with you. I still hope that Rob may actually be a pretty decent guy.

      God, I wish he’d hook up with Michelle Rodriguez.

        Me too. The internets would explode from the sheer volume of “yap, they gay” comments.

        Then again, I love Michelle Rodriguez. If she swings for d*ck, she would deserve better than this unwashed wisp of a man.

    I don’t buy this Riley story, first off because it’s been denied 1000 times, and I don’t think Rob would hook up with his ex’s friend since he seems like a decent guy. Also, she was engaged to Pettyfer, who is the complete opposite of Rob – if she was into Pettyfer, no way she would be into Rob. Riley got pulled into this ridiculous story because she has red hair – that’s the sum total of evidence they are involved.

    • Annabelle says:

      Oh, so people always stick to a pre-set type where their romantic relationships are concerned? I’m not saying I totally buy this story–time will tell–but to say it isn’t true because Riley dated Alex is pretty poor reasoning.

      • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

        @Annabelle +1 People’s tastes change all the time.

      • Anname says:

        Fair point, but it is just another reason I don’t think the story is true. There is literally nothing to base this story on other than her red hair maybe in the truck. How many times can this be denied.

        And for those suggesting US Weekly is reliable, isn’t there some article out there (gawker) that proved US Weekly’s cover stories were correct 35% of the time, and that one was the highest rated of all the tabloids.

      • Annabelle says:

        Us has a decent track record; even the GossipCop denial of this story yesterday acknowledged they’re right more than wrong. Us really seems to have some legit sources in Kristen’s and/or Rob’s camps. They were right on with the cheating story and this last breakup. Like I said, time will tell, but Us is buckling down on this story. It sounds like they have a really credible source on this one.

      • Anname says:

        I find it amusing that no one believes Riley herself, or looks at the complete absence of evidence, but instead believes a tabloid story from a tabloid that may have been right some of the time. Wasn’t it USWeekly that said Rob was going to be in the royal wedding? Gossip cop acknowledges USWeekly is better than most but they certainly aren’t above using questionable sources or embellishing stories.

      • Annabelle says:

        Okay, I’ll say this again: I don’t totally buy this story, and time will tell if there’s truth to it. All I was pointing out is that you are completely dismissing Us, even though they have had reliable sources in the Robsten camp previously. They DID break the cheating story, they had info about Rob and Kristen working things out, and they were right there when things ended for (what seems like) good. It’s silly to say Us has no credibility whatsoever.

        Oh, and celebs lie all the time when it suits their wants and/or image. If I were Riley, I’d lie through my teeth, too, because that girl had a village of delusional Rob fans ready to hunt her down after it was reported she was the girl in the truck with him. All I’m saying is, it could have been her in the truck, they could be hooking up, they could be just friends, but…celebs aren’t always the most truthful, you know?

      • Jay says:

        @Annabelle Lets be clear those were not delusional “Rob fans”. Those were shippers or Robsten fans who are completely invested in Bella and Edward being together forever and Kristen’s fans who are ready to lash out at Rob and anyone around him for having the audacity to dump their girl. At this point the Rob’s fans seem to be rooting for him to hook up with someone, really anyone, else to make the shippers give up their delusions and move on.

    • mimi says:

      The pap who follows and stalks Kristen on a regular basis replied to US weekly yesterday on twitter when this story broke. He said this rumor isn’t true. He added Rob and Riley have not been seen together. Then he added that Riley is “doing the nasty with Alex P”. And he said Rob is single and is mingling. He is a scumbag pap, but I found it interesting that he was so adamant about letting US Weekly know that their story was not true.

      Riley herself denied the Robert rumors from her twitter account. She’s also close to Jared Eng from Just Jared. He mentioned at his site that the rumors weren’t true either. Riley’s spokesperson denied it twice now and even stated that Riley wasn’t photographed the weekend the picture in question was taken.

      I did see a picture taken of Riley and Alex from last week. Funny, no pictures or even an eyewitness account of Robert and Riley together even though he has been seen with out in public lots of female friends lately. The only pictures of Robert and Riley in the same frame were taken at Kristen’s birthday party. Riley brought Nick Hoult as her date to Kristen’s party. The two dated briefly before Nick headed back to X-Men filming in Montreal which reunited him with Jennifer Lawrence, both professionally and romantically.

      Riley and Kristen are still very close and friendly. Last week they were at a mutual friend’s birthday party and just last night both girls were at the Joan Jett concert with a bunch of their friends. Actually Riley has been seen with Kristen lately, not Robert.

      All the eyewitness accounts and pap pics have never mentioned Riley hanging out with Robert. If anything, Robert has been spending a lot of time with Sia lately. I doubt it’s romantic, more like good friends with a love for music and mutual friends hanging out.

      And these Sarah Gadon stories are even more far fetched. I don’t even think he had a scene with her in MTTS when he spend a week filming in Toronto recently. I haven’t heard any talk that Sarah has even been on set yet to film. The woman he was seen hugging and kissing in Toronto was a crew member from the MTTS set. Robert, Cait Cronenberg, Mia W and Jesse E had a wrap dinner for Rob the night before he left Toronto. He also hugged Cait and Mia but the media is focusing on this crew member because nobody knows anything about her. It looked like friendly good bye hugs and kisses after a nice dinner, nothing more. And please don’t disrespect Cait Cronenberg who is engaged and planning her upcoming wedding. She’s not hooking up with Robert.

      US Weekly is becoming more like Hollywood Life every time they publish a ridiculous story like this. I think it’s also very arrogant of them considering Riley and her spokesperson have denied these baseless rumors.

      Wonder who the media will declare as Robert’s next hook up of the moment? The clerk at Ralph’s (“Look, their hands touched when he handed her his money and he smiled at her when he left!”) or the random chick standing next to him at CM (“Look, his baseball cap brushed against her hoodie!”) or another good friend who happens to be female. Don’t laugh, it will happen again.

      • Annabelle says:

        I could be mistaken, but didn’t it come out that the “pap who stalks Kristen” didn’t actually Tweet Us? I thought for sure it was proven that it was just a crazy fan.

      • Allen Smithee says:

        I’m pretty sure that’s a troll account.

      • mimi says:

        Thanks for the heads up on that. There are so many trolls on twitter these days claiming to be “insiders” on Robert and Kristen, it’s hard to tell who is telling the truth. So many “insiders” contacting the media with nothing but lies. I don’t understand what these losers gain from spreading lies about famous celebrities.

      • Annabelle says:


        There are so many Robsten fans out there who are so convinced that Rob and Kristen are together or that they’re meant to be, that they’ll stoop to whatever means necessary to make others believe they’re together or on a break and not pursuing hookups/relationships with anyone else. And there are a lot of gullible people out there who just believe it because they want it to be true. It’s kind of scary but par for the course with the Robsten shippers.

    • Jan says:

      Isn’t Alex British, then he would have something in common with Rob.

  16. Tig says:

    I think it’s great he’s out and about, with lots of different folks/women. Goodness, saw something yesterday where he’s supposed to now be hot and heavy with Sarah Gadon- it really does never end, does it? Anyway, if he is with Riley, good for both of them.

    • Tessa says:

      If Rob ever dated Sarah Gadon, the earth could not handle such a beautiful couple. I think she’s absolutely drop dead GORGEOUS. The Brange would have some competition.

      • T.C. says:

        Oh please. The Brange is famous because they are both beautiful and A-list. Sarah Gadon is generic looking and C-list. Robert Pattinson is fugly and looks like a homeless guy who only washes once a month. Let’s not go crazy Pattinsonloonies.

      • Shy says:


      • Tessa says:

        Being called a Pattinsonloonie by a clear Brangeloonie. My life is complete!

    • Anname says:

      I get the impression Sarah Gadon does not like Rob at all – she seems like a rather cold woman, not really Rob’s type.

      • Tessa says:

        Cuz Kristen was a warm sunshiny Koala Bear?

      • Anname says:

        Maybe bad choice of words, but Sarah seems icy-proper, clearly not Kristen-like. And I just got the impression Rob and Sarah are polite work friends, but would not get along outside of that.

      • Tessa says:

        I haven’t seen much of Sarah, only pics of her laughing with Rob while filming Cosmopolis and having fun on red carpets with her costars. I haven’t seen this icy side I guess. Really, when I think of her, I think of her laughing while filming the diner scene in Cosmopolis, and I have seen the movie, and the laughing isn’t part of the script. She didn’t jump out at me as icy. Guarded about not stirring up rumors while he was dating Kristen, sure. But not icy.

      • Annabelle says:

        There you go with those “types” again…

      • Anname says:

        Ok Annabelle, I will just believe anything even if it doesn’t make sense to me, just so I avoid possibly suggesting someone may have a type of personality not compatible with someone else.

      • Annabelle says:

        You’re dismissing everyone out of hand because they don’t fit into these pigeonholed little types you’ve created. Riley wouldn’t date Rob because she dated Alex, so Rob is clearly not her type. Rob wouldn’t date Sarah Gadon because you decided she’s cold and that’s not his type. Speculate away, because it’s fun and that’s what we’re all here for, but don’t you have more to offer than “not his type”?

      • Anname says:

        What I have to offer is the complete lack of evidence suggesting he is hooking up with either one of these girls. A red head in a truck, and costars in a movie, and that’s about it. The rest is just my observations of the times we see them, which is why I always say “it seems”, or “I think”.

        He and Sarah actually seemed rather standoff-ish to each other, did you see the behind the scenes footage of their photoshoot in Cannes? Again, this is my observation, does that count at typing someone?

    • Annie says:

      I hope he gets with Sarah. She’s beautiful and classy and has a brighter future than Kristen. So this could be a better power couple too. Kristen thiught Rob needed her for everything. He can upgrade any time. She? Not so much.

    • Mell says:

      If Rob werent tabloid material I think something would happen between them. Obv she kept her distance from him during cosmopolis to avoid any drama in her life that could damage her career.She mentioned in an interview how caitlin got so much hate just because she post a picture of rob’s dog or went out with him. I guess she didnt and still dont want that for her. To be honest I think she liked Rob a bit and Rob found her attractive but maybe he didnt like her guarded actittude and that’s why he didnt even try to be his friend at all.

  17. lisa says:

    did riley leave co$ with her mom?

  18. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    Not too inclined to believe this at this point – this week, he’s linked to Sia, Sarah Gadon AND Riley, I think he’s still at that stage post-break-up where he’s going to be linked to anyone that he spends more than five minutes with. Just like Kristen was linked to that guy she sat next to at the Chanel show and his wife walked the runway. Whoever Rob dates, I just hope he has the good sense to confirm whether or not they’re dating and leave it at that, not that are-they-aren’t-they crap he and Kristen played for years – that guarantees an increased interest.

    • Jan says:

      I think keep them guessing was totally Kristen’s doing. Rob would have been so proud to walk with her down the red carpet holding hands, showing everyone they were a couple but Kristen wouldn’t have it, always saying what was hers was private. Too many times Rob reached for her hand when he wasn’t supposed to. I am so glad he is out of that relationship for he deserves to have a woman that will love him in public.

  19. Tig says:

    @ Tessa- you made me spit out my coffee- too funny! It’s good to have comic relief after reading the Simon Cowell thread- that’s just too God-awful for words!

  20. ernie says:

    Riley is beautiful. If true, good for him. They’d make a crazy attractive couple.

  21. Melissa says:

    Good for him! He needs to get on with his life. The whole stupid fanbase needs to get over him and Kristen.

    • Jan says:

      He is tryng to get on with his life. It’s just that the tabloids consider him a hot commodity for their mags and intend to squeeze every ounce of reading material out of him while they can. If you put Rob and Kristen beside Miley and Liam, there would be many more comments for Rob and Kristen. They are the most interesting to bash.

  22. Shannon says:

    She’s gorgeous and she’s Elvis’s granddaughter. Also it looks like she bathes. Go Sparkles.

  23. kiki says:

    rob has been linked to so many different women since he broke up with Kristen. all the stories have died, other then this one. this story keeps coming back.

    • Annabelle says:

      This is true. This is the second round of Riley/Rob stories. There would almost have to be something there for Us to pursue it after a publicist’s denial, right? Why else would they run it? It’s not like Riley Keough is super famous. Most people don’t know what she’s acted in or who she is, aside from her being Elvis’ granddaughter.

      • mimi says:

        Why is Riley hanging out more with Kristen than Robert? Where was Riley at Beyonce and Jay Z’s recent concerts? Rob was seen at both and he was papped leaving Jay Z’s concert and getting into the same car as Kristen’s close friend Gina and her boyfriend. If Robert and Riley are dating, why not a double date? Instead, Robert was hanging out with Sia at the concert and a few nights later at Soho House again with Sia and some other friends. No Riley again.

        Sorry, not buying this story at all, especially since Riley herself denied it and had her spokesperson deny it a few times to the media. I’m going to believe Riley’s direct denial over a nameless “insider” source at US Weekly magazine!

      • Annabelle says:

        The ‘this is true’ was in reference to all the other stories of his hookups disappearing and this one coming back for round two. As I have said a bunch this thread, I need more evidence before I’d buy this story, but it does make me wonder why Us would put this out there after Riley and her publicist have denied it. I haven’t seen Sia’s or Sarah Gadon’s teams outright denying the hookup rumors, so why wouldn’t Us go with one of those ladies if their story is a complete fabrication? Us is surely aware that Riley denied getting together with Rob, so why would they push a story that’s totally DOA and tarnish their credibility? Maybe it’s a slow news week, or maybe they’re onto something…who knows?

      • mimi says:

        I’m more surprised that the media isn’t trying to hook him up with Sia or Michelle Rodriguez. At least he has actually been seen with both women on multiple occasions recently. Where are the actual eyewitness accounts/celeb sightings/pap pics/fan pics of Robert out in a social setting with Riley? Instead, we get a pap pic last week of Riley and Alex P together and Riley hanging out with Kristen last night at the Joan Jett concert. No Robert in sight.

        Yet this story is the one US Weekly and Hollywood Life focus most on. hmmmm

      • Annabelle says:

        Mimi, it could all boil down to Riley trying to drum up more press (seriously, she got a ton the last time the rumors were making the rounds). Or it’s possible that Us got a bad tip from someone who is usually reliable and wanted to be the first to report it after all the denials. Obviously, this is all just speculation on my part, I don’t know better than anybody else here. I just find it so odd that they’d push this story after stern denials unless they had a good reason. It certainly doesn’t make Us look good if this is a no-go, so I don’t understand their motivation with this one.

  24. Carrie says:

    Kstew was at Joan Jett’s concert with Riley and some of her other friends last night. It’s safe to assume that this is a false rumor again.

  25. Leah says:

    She looks a bit similar to Kstew but more curvy and feminine.

  26. er says:

    Oh yeah, dating in the Elvis family. He’ll find a “normal,” dramaless, low-profile relationship.

  27. Ol says:

    Meh. I think her reps noticed how much noise it makes being linked to him and decided to give this another round; the girl is all over jared already.

    • Olivia says:

      Actually I think Rob’s team decided out of Michelle R, Sia and Riley that Riley was someone his fans could get behind. I agree with this. Riley may be all over just Jared but Rob’s dating life is all over everywhere. Looks like his team is trying to tighten it up. Let’s face it, he can’t pull something like this off like Leo. His fans want the decent guy image. Riley fits.

      • marcy says:

        Disagree. I don’t think his team would want him connected to anyone who is close with Kristen. I actually think this last denial came from his rep, not Riley’s. There was a harshness to it, stressing “they’re not even in contact” that to me was more about shutting down the Kristen connection than the Riley rumor.

        Robsten shippers started this whole rumor because Rob was seen with a redhaired girl and they so desperately wanted to find a way that it had to be innocent, so…bingo, it MUST be one of Kristen’s BFF’s! But they didn’t expect the media to take it and run with it in this way.

        Frankly, I could see Riley’s team pushing the story so when it finally comes out that she’s back together with Pettyfer, it’ll get more attention for the two of them. “Riley chooses Alex over RPattz!”

  28. Quincy says:

    People care too much who he’s dating. We don’t ask the same of Kristen. If his real fans backed off this story that the media is begging you to keep shamelessly interested in – they could write more about his career news and less about his dating news. Give it a rest. Until we see him properly out on a routine basis with a regular chick I say its all useless conjecture that’s unsubstantiated rumor. His career is headed in right direction, if only his fans would follow his lead of what’s important.

  29. gg says:

    I like Riley a lot and think she’s gorgeous. Love her hair.

    • Annabelle says:

      Totally agree, she’s very pretty. I kinda wish I could pull off the red hair, but I so don’t have the coloring for it.

      • gg says:

        I dunno, I’ve seen people of all shades looking great with red hair. I color mine red but I’m very pale and have freckles so people assume it’s genuine, but I’ve seen tanner folk looking pretty good with the right shade of red. I don’t think this is Riley’s real hair color.

        Mostly, to look good with red hair, never wear red or pink makeup or clothes because it clashes like the devil and looks cheap. But other than that, try it, maybe put in some blonde highlights to make it look shiny, get some good color preserving shampoo and conditioner and it might work. And if it doesn’t, just add brown on top of it.

  30. Amelia says:

    Sorry guys, Kristen and Riley were out together at a Joan Jett concert last night. Try again lol

  31. Tiffany :) says:

    I thought her rep did say she wasn’t in the car with him? From JJ:

    ““Riley isn’t dating Rob,” a rep for the 24-year-old Mad Max: Fury Road starlet told “And I can confirm that Riley was not photographed at all this weekend,” her rep added, confirming Riley was not in the car with Rob.”

    …Not that it really matters. They are both single so why not?

  32. niagirl says:

    There is a video of all of them at Kristen’s birthday party and they are all outside waiting for their vehicles. Rob is standing next to Riley and is staring her down. When she catches him, she smiles and he walks over to Kristen. He was definitely checking her out.

    • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

      LOL @ this fanfiction right here, you say that this proves that he was into her, someone else will say that it’s just proof that they’re two people who were part of a group of friends, someone else will say that him walking back over to Kristen proves that his loyalty was with her. None of us really know anything, I’m side-eying this story because its a persistent rumour that really has no tangible evidence to back it up, someone really wants us to believe that there’s something serious between these two, and we don’t know who that person or group is.

  33. vketjo says:

    Old Rob is a deep thinker and He star isn’t shining as brightly as it once was now is it ? ……..and think of all that Presley Money in this girls background…and mommy got nearly all of it when she turned 35 ….Poor Priscilla is not the one in control Now….So…..go for it Rob…..e

  34. Guest says:

    Love where Rob’s career is heading. Can’t wait for his next trilogy blockbuster movie but also like his lineup of indies. Also, let’s not forget Dior. I don’t think he’s interested in settling down, and he shouldn’t. He’s too young to be tide down. Last thing he wants is a girlfriend.

  35. Jennifer says:

    When people want to keep their “stuff” tight, they can.
    Look at the secret courtships of Brad/Angie (not seen together from April 2004 to March 2005), Chris Martin/Gwyneth Paltrow (only photographed after visiting doctor, an “unofficial” announcement of her pregnancy), or Ben Affleck/Jennifer Garner? Even Jennifer Aniston – did we know anything about Justin until they were photographed at their premiere and became serious immediately?
    In depositions regarding the spying case of News of the World, Angie’s then-PA testified that there were only four people who knew of ongoing relationship: Brad, Angie, her, and one other person, which she named. That is how you keep your “stuff” tight. He may be learning.

    • mimi says:

      But none of those couples you listed denied being involved when asked. They just didn’t address the accusations at all. Riley denied the rumors herself and had a spokesperson deny them. One of her close friends she shares with Kristen even denied it on his instagram. Plus her actions back up her denials. She is continuing to spend time hanging out with Kristen in public. She’s been friends with Kristen since 2010 when they filmed The Runaways together and their friendship is as strong as ever. Plus, I doubt Robert would go after one of Kristen’s close friends immediately after their break up. That’s a really crappy thing to do and I just can’t see Robert stooping so low.

      I don’t understand why some people are having a hard time believing Riley’s own denial over the US Weekly story.

      • Jennifer says:

        Not true. Do the research. They all said they were just friends. In addition, they weren’t that many articles because they kept their “stuff” tight. They were out of sight.

  36. Hannah says:

    I think that Riley is the “source” behind the USWeekly article from yesterday, but not because there’s any truth to it, she’s just thirsty.

    A look-alike gets papped with Rob and she gets tons of press to the point that she just lets it go on for days until she finally denies it.

    Now she’s back with her ex Alex Pettyfer and they were papped together already but no one gave a damn. This in an attempt for them to be relevant the next time they step out. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are planning their next photo op as I type.

  37. TOPgirl says:

    Such a fug couple they’d make. Good luck Rob, you’ll need it more with this new chick.

  38. RidiculousRumors says:

    Please does no one think with their brain anymore? The only reason this rumor started was because rob was seen in a car with a female with red hair and somebody assumed it was riley keogh because riley happens to have red hair. Riley has since denied it was her in the car and the subsequent dating rumors. Nobody seems to be mentioning the fact that Kristen and Riley still very much hang out and were just together with friends at Joan Jett’s concert. Now use your brains and think logically as to why Kristen and Riley would still be hanging out if this was true. Not to mention the fact there is no evidence to this ridiculous rumor.

  39. Joe Joe says:

    If he is not dating Riley then he is most likely dating someone.He probably isn’t sitting alone every night feeling bad and crying.And the fact that she and Kristen are friends doesn’t mean Riley wouldn’t go for it.I would bet alot of those girls in their circle want him.The only reason Katy Perry backed off is because John Mayer took her back.
    I just feel like he could do better than this skinny wannabe who cannot act or model(she has tried and failed at both) and is only famous for what actors she has dated and being related to Elvis Presley.Get out of your inner circle Rob there are women everywhere that could treat you better.Does he not know that? Jeez.

  40. chalkdustgirl says:

    I think she looks a little bit like Liv Tyler in the first pic.

    • Jillian says:

      Totally agree with you. I was like “woah, ginger Arwen!” And then she looks like Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) in the second one.

  41. Emma says:

    I thought Kristen and Riley went to the Joan Jett concert but they sat nowhere near each other and didn’t interact. Where is the info that they interacted coming from?
