Remember all that serious drama when rumors were spreading like wildfire that Robert Pattinson was dating Kristen Stewart's friend, Riley Keough? Back at the beginning of July, Riley's rep totally denied it, saying that the two were nothing more than buddies. Well, I'm sorry KStew, but I have some, er, bad news. They may not be an official item, but apparently Rob and Riley are "hooking up," according to Us Weekly.
I feel ... bad. If I had to guess, Rob and Riley didn't want to hurt Kristen's feelings and that's why they denied hanging out at the beginning of last month. According to a source, Riley's the first girl that Rob's really liked since Kristen. At the end of the day, I don't think there's any easy way to tell your ex that you're hanging out with one of her friends.
I'm gonna be straight, though, Rob and Riley can do whatever they want. Yeah, there's definitely some sort of commandment in the unwritten girl code that states Thou Shalt Not Date Your Friend's Ex, but at the end of the day, you just can't help who you fall for. Plus, if the reports are true, then Rob and Riley aren't an official item or anything (yet). They're just spending time together.
Us Weekly's source says that Rob and Riley are "having a lot of fun," and I think the guy's earned it. After all of this public scrutiny over his breakup with Kristen, he's totally entitled to enjoying his personal life again. I mean, let's be real: Pattinson's four-year relationship with Kristen ended back in May -- what's the guy supposed to do? Sit around and mope forever? No. No he's not.
Now, who's going to be the first one to come up with a clever nickname for the new lovebirds? I'm on board with Robley, personally.
Do you think Rob is wrong to "hook up" with Kristen's friend?
