If this isn’t a post fit for the “Well Well Well” tag, then I don’t know what is. Remember way back to yesterday, when we were reporting the scandalous news that Katy Perry was spotted sitting next to Robert Pattinson at dinner? Sorry – canoodling over noodles (get it right, Allison). And it was fine and not suspicious at all because Katy and Robert are just friends, and also he’s “kind of” engaged to FKA Twigs? Here’s the part where we all start thinking: “Shoot, maybe that seating choice was more scandalous than we thought.”
A source has given E! News an RPattz/FKA Twigs relationship update, and it sounds like they could soon be soon downgrading their engagement status from “kind of” to “um…yeah, about that.”
“He is technically still with FKA Twigs, but it doesn’t seem like it will last,” one source told us. “They were serious at one point, but not anymore. The whole thing with Rob saying they are ‘kind of engaged’ speaks for itself. The relationship has been fizzling out.”
Another source claims they’re not even together right now, and that they’re just waiting for the right time to break the news.
“Rob already feels single. He and FKA have had major distance and tension between them for months now,” the source explained. “They really tried to make it work, and it’s not long until the split will be public. They have just been trying to figure out how to sort everything.”
E! News points out an incriminating picture FKA Twigs posted to Instagram last week in which her engagement ring appears to be MIA.
Okay, so their once-strong love has been snapped like a dry twig (I deserve many groans for that one). But how does Katy Perry fit into all of this? According to one of E! News’ sources, she and Robert might be on the brink of something romantic. But she won’t be receiving a thousand angry Twihard tweets just yet.
“As far as Katy goes, they have been good friends for a while. They have many mutual friends and have always kept in touch. They aren’t serious as of now, but Rob has always had an interest in Katy.”
Or maybe not. A looky-loo who saw Katy and Robert having dinner together tells E! News that they were “flirting” and “laughing” the whole time. At one point in the evening, Katy and Robert went outside for a smoke, where they reportedly “cozied up.” That source says that there was no mention of FKA Twigs at dinner, and adds that “everyone assumed Katy and Robert were together.”
A quick peek at FKA Twigs’ Instagram account shows that her pics are still filled with comments from those die-hard Robert Pattinson fans who still labor under the delusion that he’s madly in love with an internet stranger who has seen Twilight seven hundred times. But something tells me those Twihards might actually be okay with the possibility of Katy and Robert getting together. Katy goes on vacation a lot, which means there’s a chance history could repeat itself and Katy’s current love could be seen paddling her around sans pants. Oh, they’re definitely lighting their sparkly Edward Cullen wish candles for that.
