It seems that Rob has been burned even worse by Kristen Stewart’s affair than we thought, as he is now afraid to commit to new flame Riley. HollywoodLife.com exclusively learned that Rob and Riley are merely just ‘friends with benefits.’
Robert Pattinson has been busy filming scenes for Maps To The Stars in Toronto, Canada, and his schedule has been so hectic that his blossoming romance with Riley Keough has been put on the back burner. Rob, 27, and Riley, 24, were starting to get serious, but now, HollywoodLife.com can exclusively reveal that they are just “friends with benefits.”
Robert Pattinson & Riley Keough: Not A Serious Romance
Rob began filming his new movie in mid July in Toronto, shortly after beginning a romance with Riley. However, Rob still can’t get over his trust issues after Kristen Stewart cheated on him with married director Rupert Sanders. In fact, Rob is so scared by this that he cannot commit to Riley.
“With his schedule and his overall trust issues with girls due to his celebrity and what Kristen did to him, he and Riley are nothing more then friends with benefits,” a source close to the Twilight actor tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
“He considers himself single, but acts like a couple when he is around her,” the source added.
We know Rob just landed in LA, so perhaps he and Riley will meet up.
It’s not surprising that Rob is taking a back seat with his new romance, because HollywoodLife.com learned that he was nervous about getting involved with someone so soon after Kristen. A source close to the actor tells us:
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. 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. He is aware that something still might happen, but he is being cautious. But with a strongly physical relationship that is happening, he knows that can always lead to more, so his mind is everywhere.
Furthermore, Rob was seen kissing a mystery brunette in Toronto on July 22, and HollywoodLife.com‘s editor-in-chief Bonnie Fuller thinks Rob needs to play the field! Perhaps he is right to slow things down with Riley, because it would be better if he worked through his trust issues before commiting to another girl.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Do YOU think Rob is better off being single, or should he take his Riley romance more seriously?
