Robert Pattinson is once again a single man, having broken up with his longtime girlfriend and fiancee FKA Twigs. The Twilight actor is being linked to Katy Perry, with one source going as far as claiming that her ex-boyfriend, Orlando Bloom, warned Pattinson to stay away from her. This report, however, appears to be untrue.
In August, months before Pattinson and FKA Twigs’ split, he and Perry were spotted having dinner at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood. Although they appeared to be with a group of people, onlookers told TMZ that the pair got super cozy and the setting of the restaurant was very romantic. Their small get-together stirred speculation that things were romantic between them.
With Pattinson’s recent breakup with longtime girlfriend FKA Twigs, the rumor mill was quick to pick up on Pattinson and Perry’s closeness and a report from the National Enquirer claimed that the Grammy-nominated artist’s ex-boyfriend, Orlando Bloom, has warned Pattinson to stay away.
According to the article, the Lord of the Rings star confronted Pattinson and “told him to back off” after news went out that he allegedly dating Perry. Gossip Cop, however, has since debunked the report, saying Bloom never threatened the Lost City of Z actor. It further claimed that Pattinson and Perry were never on romantic terms and that they only went out as close friends.
Gossip Cop went on to claim that Enquirer is an unreliable source and has previously published sensationalized fake stories about the trio.
There is no truth to the rumors of Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry dating. As a matter of fact, the two are simply just close friends who are supportive of one another. The two have been friends for a long time and have always kept in touch with each other, E! Online reported.
A source revealed that Pattinson has been confiding in the “Swish Swish” singer and “leaning a lot” on her throughout the breakup. Although Perry is currently on her world tour, she still makes time for Pattinson and they communicate through text or FaceTime to make sure he’s doing okay.
Meanwhile, Pattinson is busy promoting his latest film. More recently he was photographed sightseeing in Greece, where he is promoting his latest film Good Time.
