Robert Pattinson Now 'Friends With Benefits' With Fellow Heartbroken Pal

Robert PattinsonIt seems like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are finally, officially over (for now). KStew looks happier than ever on the set of her new movie (she's smiling!), and RPattz's career is better than ever, and while we may weep into our Cheerios that these two lovebirds didn't make it, we have to move on too.

Onto the latest gossip concerning the love lives of these two Twilight stars, anyhow. Because rumor has it that Robert Pattinson has been hooking up with Katy Perry.

OK, those rumors have been circulating for a while, given that the two are "good friends" and also something about a drunken serenade at a karaoke bar, but now we have some confirmation.

A source has confirmed that Rob and Katy have taken their friendship to the next level in the wake of her split from John Mayer.

Rob and Katy have never stopped being in touch -- she loves the attention, but also thinks he's really sexy and funny. The texting stepped up in January when things started going bad between Katy and John. Rob's been a real shoulder for her to cry on. Since he's been single, though, the texts have hotted up -- she loves drunk texting him and they're always flirty.

But wait! There's more! Apparently the two are even planning a secret rendezvous in Canada. Because nothing says "romantic clandestine affair" like Canada.

He's in Toronto filming and they've even planned for her to make a secret trip to see him. They've always kept their hook-ups discreet. They're just friends -- with benefits -- at the moment.

So maybe the rumors are true and maybe they're not, but one thing's for sure -- if Robert Pattinson offered me a shoulder to cry on, I wouldn't say no.

Do you think Rob and Katy are hooking up?
