Robert Pattinson’s 'Drug Scandal' Is All Because of One Suspicious Photo

Robert PattinsonUh-oh, y'all. Robert Pattison and a packet of white powder were just photographed together at a party. Okay, so Rob wasn't holding the white powdery substance, which just happened to be in a little clear square packet -- but he was near it. In fact, it seemed to be photobombing him. Rob was standing with a pal who posted a photo of himself and RPattz to his Facebook page -- and commenters began noticing that right behind Rob, someone was holding a packet of white powder. Let's just call this powder what it probably is, okay? Let's not mince words here! It was sugar. (Or maybe possibly but probably not cocaine and/or powdered heroin.)


Listen, folks. Rob can't help it if he just happens to be standing there and someone with a packet of god-knows-what just happens to stand behind him. Dang. It's not HIS fault. This is Hollywood, you know.

RadarOnline, which got a hold of the photo (thanks whichever one of Rob's friend's Facebook friends sent that in), says that Rob appears "bleary-eyed" in the photo. Of course he is! He is bleary-eyed from avoiding drug dealers all night!

Oh, and then there was that Star magazine report that Rob was caught going on a "cocaine bender" in the Viper Room. I won't even get into everything else the source said because wahwahwahwah I'm not listening. Let's just say it makes Rob sound worse than John Belushi. Come on, peeps. Not Rob! Not at the Viper Room! After River Phoenix, that would be so cliché.

More From The Stir: Robert Pattinson Parties With Two Girls -- and Neither Is Kristen

I've been to Hollywood parties. If someone passed a mysterious packet of sugarcane behind me while I innocently stood for a photo, I wouldn't want it being held against me. So I'm not holding it against Rob. I don't believe Rob had anything to do with any shenanigans going on at that party! Even if he did steal a friend's Valium to get through his Twilight audition.

Ugh, why am I getting this sick feeling in the stomach that one day we might see Rob on Oprah Winfrey's Next Chapter, telling everyone to get off his back, people, he only did coke a few times?

Do you think Rob needs to move back to England, where no one does drugs?
