Wow, it looks like Robert Pattinson had quite the wild weekend. He was caught living it up in Los Angeles, and even socked a security guard in the face as he woozily exited one party scene. Considering Rob has gotten a bachelor pad in Beverly Hills, and is hanging with a bunch of new women (Mischa Barton, Katy Perry, Michelle Rodriguez, etc.), and is now apparently raising the roofs on every club in town, it's almost enough to make you wonder if some party animal took over sweet, lovable Rob's body.
Hollywood Life reports that the latest gang Rob was with when he cuffed a security guard was an "unfamiliar" one and that his usually low-key ways have given rise to some disturbing bad boy antics.
Well, this is all to be expected. Rob is following the post-breakup template to a T. A source tells Hollywood Life:
Rob is missing Kristen like crazy. He thought by moving to Beverly Hills and hanging out with his new friends it would take his mind off Kristen, but it has done the complete opposite. His distractions are only making him miss Kristen more. He is lonely and sad. He’s in a new home, but it doesn’t matter, having Kristen not around isn’t the same. He used to laugh with Kristen and things just aren’t the same with her not around.
Ugh, isn't that always the way when you break up with someone? You're miserable in the relationship, so you get out. Then, you expect that you'll be thrilled and happy! Instead, you're miserable in a whole new unexpected way.
Often the solution seems to be to drown your sorrows in booze and bury your lonelies in another body (hopefully responsibly in both cases). But those only serve to make you forget HIM or HER for a moment. And then the memory of HIM or HER comes rushing back even stronger than before.
The reality is that partying and hooking up is like putting a Band-Aid on a gaping, bloody, festering wound. It only works for like a microsecond.
Unfortunately getting over someone takes a lot of time. A lot of work. A lot of healing. And, yes, a lot of sitting around crying and missing that person and mourning your dreams and what you once had. And it sucks.
Partying just delays the inevitable. But sometimes the pain is so bad, that a little delay can be a good thing. So let's cut Rob some slack for now. And hope he's not still doing the same thing in a year, or he'll be the next one on Oprah Winfrey's couch.
Have you ever partied hard after a breakup?
