Can you really blame Katy for flirting with Rob? Right. Neither can we!
If you were shocked to see your beloved RPatz leaving an LA karaoke bar with pop tart Katy Perry on Dec. 16, you can set your mind at ease: there isn’t anything going on between the two.
But that’s not for a lack of trying on Katy’s part, a source tells us. The two arrived separately at Dimples in Burbank, Calif. for actress pal Shannon Woodward’s annual soiree and had little interaction at all — until Katy coyly tried to make the Twilight star sing his heart out.
“Rob was there with his buddies drinking scotch and smoking cigarettes. He wasn’t paying any attention to Katy at all,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com.
Adds a second source, “Katy was sitting with her friends, but she kept on coming over to try to get him to sing, but he wouldn’t have any of it. He was having a guys night with his friends and clearly wasn’t interested in any romance at all.”
Confirms the first source, “There was definitely NO flirting on Rob’s part. It was very platonic.” (We’re sure Rob’s alleged paramour, Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart, is glad to hear it!)
But what about those snaps of the two – who have attended Shannon’s fete for the second year in a row (though separately) — heading on to the Renaissance Hotel together?
“They headed to an afterparty together. Everyone at Shannon’s party was going,” says the second insider, adding, “Dimples was shutting down for the night and everyone had to leave.”
Katy, at least you still have Russell Brand to keep you warm at night! Don’t think we didn’t catch your comedian boyfriend leaving your house on Dec. 17 to say goodbye to you before he headed home to the U.K. for the holidays.
Our advice to you? Stick with Russell. He’s clearly way into you. Although we must say, we applaud you for trying it on with Rob — we would have done the same!
