The Robert Pattinson and Riley Keough fan fiction continues. Despite Riley’s rep claiming that the rumors of Riley and Rob hooking up weren’t true, there are many tabloids who continued to publish stories about Rob and Riley dating. Obviously, all of them also make it seem like Kristen Stewart is incredibly betrayed by this whole situation, when in reality she’s probably just getting baked 24/7.
Look, it’s the publicist’s job to cover for their client. Which is why there’s a chance that Rob and Riley are actually dating/hooking up/having sex/whatever. However, if Riley’s rep went to the trouble of claiming that Riley was not the woman that Rob was spotted with, how much accuracy is there to the rumors? Sure, Rob could just be hooking up with random women everywhere, but that doesn’t exactly seem like him.
Either way, let’s just pretend that Rob and Riley are having a thing. According to Hollywood Life, the reason Rob and Riley haven’t gone public with their new romance is because he’s afraid to commit. A source explains, “Rob will probably be seen with other girls along with Riley. He generally considers himself both single to his friends and exclusive when he is with Riley. He wants his cake and eat it to kind of thing. It’s getting very physical between him and Riley, but he still isn’t ready to pull the trigger on a full relationship as he will be away filming soon and he doesn’t want to ruin something that is blossoming by leaving.”
The source even adds, “Rob was a little scared off that this new relationship was going to be a media firestorm, so he has slowed things down, so mostly it’s a physical relationship. They don’t consider it dating, but everyone around them does.”
Basically, they’re friends with benefits. And there’s nothing wrong with that, although I’m sure Twihards will beg to differ. Seriously though, Rob’s been through enough the last few years. He deserves to have some fun, and whether it’s with Riley, with Katy Perry, or some random unnamed redhead, good for him.
