Thursday gossip roundup: Robert Pattinson is drunk-dialing Kristen Stewart

Re-enactment.

Robert Pattinson has reportedly started reaching out to estranged girlfriend Kristen Stewart — but not in the healthiest of ways. “He’s been drinking like crazy,” a source tells In Touch magazine. “He’s been drunk-dialing Kristen.” Pattinson had reportedly been giving Stewart the silent treatment in the wake of revelations of her infidelity, but apparently now he’s looking to talk — sort of. “Rob had been avoiding her calls, but now they’re talking — well, they’re barely talking,” the source says. “There’s a lot of dead silence on the phone because there’s not a lot to talk about.”

Brad Pitt is apparently making the most of his engagement to Angelina Jolie. The actor reportedly purchased a $370,000 Patek Philippe watch for Jolie a lavish “pre-wedding present,” according to the Sun. “It chimes like Big Ben and is constructed by hand,” a source says of the watch, which took two months to put together. “”He went to Geneva to pick it up, and it’s believed he’ll present it to Ange as a pre-wedding gift.”

Despite a report in Star magazine that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux had called it quits after a year and a half of dating, the couple is reportedly still very much together, according to Wonderwall. “It’s once again just another fabrication to sell magazines and has no relationship to reality,” a rep for Aniston says. In fact, while Aniston’s been shooting a new movie in North Carolina, Theroux has reportedly been spending time with her closest friends, grabbing dinner in New York with Courteney Cox and Laura Dern.

While their divorce came suddenly, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have reportedly kept things from getting too bitter, establishing a “civilized routine” as they share custody of 6-year-old daughter Suri, according to People magazine. The exes “are talking,” a source says. “They are bother going to do what’s best for Suri.” That includes sending her to private school in New York City in the fall “to have that sort of stability and consistency in her life,” another source says.

Justin Bieber doesn’t understand why Prince William continues to put up with thinning hair. “I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia,” the well-coifed Canadian pop star tells U.K. magazine Rollercoaster. “I don’t know why he doesn’t just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?”
