The Word: Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson are just friends
Katy Perry has been spending a lot of time with newly single Robert Pattinson. They even crashed a wedding rehearsal together last week, and if that’s not a magical first date, I don’t know what is. However, sources close to the non-couple say there’s nothing romantic between them: They’re just good, platonic, wedding-crashing pals.
“Rob and Katy are just very similar people and she adores him, as a friend, and she just wants to be there for him as a mate,” the source explained to E! News.
Hmm. Well, that source is probably in Rob’s camp, since they’re clearly British — we don’t say “mate” here, mate — unless it’s Katy’s ex-husband Russell Brand. Either way, seems like Katy’s intentions are still unclear. Maybe she’s just waiting a bit to make her move so Twilight fans won’t try to stake her for stealing Edward from Bella.
Rob was spotted last week moving out of the house he’d shared with Kristen, his girlfriend of almost four years. He took off with his truck piled high with suitcases and belongings, and his two dogs, Bear and Bernie, in the front seat.
No! Not the dogs!
According to the Daily News, Rob and Kristen’s relationship has been strained for some time, and they’ve been arguing about her moodiness and her cheating with director Rupert Sanders last year. Kristen is reportedly devastated by the breakup — although they’ve agreed to see other people, she doesn’t want to, and doesn’t want Rob seeing anyone else either.
