There’s word that Rihanna has been getting a little flirty with Robert Pattinson to cheer him up.
The world has been keeping a close eye on Robert since his girlfriend Kristen Stewart was caught making out with her married director Rupert Sanders. OK! Magazine reports that the singer has been trying to get his attention with a few friendly texts.
“She got Rob’s phone number from a mutual friend and has been sending him sexy, funny texts to cheer him up. At first, Rob thought someone ‘Punk’d’ him," a source told OK!. "Eventually Rihanna convinced him she was for real, but Rob has been resisting her.”
Reportedly, the two have bumped into each other at different events over the years and it’s rumored that "Talk That Talk" singer has a thing for the Twilight vampire. But she had endeavored to respect his relationship.
"RiRi thinks he’s very cute, but nothing ever came of it because he was attached to Kristen—and it’s not her style to steal someone else’s man," the tipster said.
Now that things are a little uncertain between Robert and Kristen, though, RiRi wouldn’t mind spending a little time with the British actor.
The insider claimed, "Rihanna would love to meet up with him and Rob’s friends keep telling him he has to start enjoying life again. What better person to help cheer him up than Rihanna?"
