The tabloids have been trying to make a Robert Pattinson – Katy Perry – Kristen Stewart love triangle happen for several years now. First, they tried making Kristen a lesbian. When that didn’t work, they moved on to hooking up Rob with Katy. Scandalous, right? Three best friends with two secretly hooking up behind the other’s back? Well, it would be scandalous if it was even remotely believable.
The National Enquirer claims that in the wake of Rob’s failure to appear with Kristen [at the MET Gala], Rob and Katy have been getting ‘close’. According to a source, “Rob and Katy bonded over the fact that they’ve both been cheated on — and pals hope it’s the beginning of a beautiful romance.”
The source added, “Rob reportedly took Katy to the Spot lounge at the Trump SoHo, and the pair stayed side by side for much of the night. Katy adores Rob. She always has. And he’s always liked her. When they’re together, there is an obvious chemistry, and their shared heartbreak has made for a strong bond. Everyone’s hoping they become an item.”
Who is everyone, exactly? Almost all of Rob’s and Katy’s common friends are also friends with Kristen, and I doubt they would be ok with one of their best friends getting her heart broken. Also, it was never actually proven that Katy was ‘cheated on’, so I doubt their ‘bonding’ had anything to do with that. Considering that Katy and Rob have been close friends for a very long time, including the time before Rob started going out with Kristen as well as when Katy and Rob were both single, it would have happened already if it was going to happen at all.
