Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart

Everyone thinks that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison broke up because of another man. Not that there's one in the picture right now. (That we know of.) I mean that man who was in the picture (several of them; splashed all over the media) a year ago. Rumors are swirling that it took RPattz awhile, but that he finally kicked KStew to the curb because of her year-old romance with her director, Rupert Sanders. Oh sure, there were probably other problems too. Rob was said to not appreciate Kristen's constant bad mood and they'd been distant this whole month, and he blew her off on his birthday. But it's all really about Rupert, isn't it?! Unless it's not. Unless it's about someone else entirely. Someone female. Someone pretty. Someone buxom. Someone by the name of Katy Perry!

There's been rumors before that Katy and Rob are involved. He was seen with Katy at a Daughters concert together, and also out to dinner with her. But Katy has been friends with the couple for a long time, so it's hard to tell what, if anything, is going on there.

But now E! News has a source that says that Katy actually "played a role" in the breakup. And speculation is that it's not necessarily because she and Rob and doing the horizontal mamba. Katy might have actually been the female pal who subtly drove a wedge between the couple until that wedge was more like a big nasty wedgie that was so painful that someone finally yanked the underwear out of the buttcrack. That metaphor went seriously awry, but you know what I'm saying.

Katy might have been like one of those chicks who insinuates herself into a couple's life, ostensibly because she likes you both, and she cozies up to you, and then you drop your defenses, and the next thing you know, she's making off with your bf! I hate those chicks!

If Katy IS Team Rob, she made sure to abscond to a vacation in the Bahamas so no one would think she was masterminding the breakup. Very clever, Katy. Verrry clever.

Do you think Katy had anything to do with the split?
