Robert Pattinson Not Dating Riley Keough — Why They Split Over Kristen Stewart
“Rob’s schedule is very busy and he is in no mood to start another relationship, especially with someone so close to Kristen,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He doesn’t want to be ‘that guy.’ He doesn’t want people to think he is stealing a friend in the wake of the relationship with Kristen. He loved Kristen and always will look at her fondly, but he doesn’t want to be defined by her, and by dating Riley it would only continue the link to Kristen.”
Robert Pattinson’s Promise To Kristen Stewart
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Rob and Kristen had a bittersweet reunion on the weekend of August 4 at Kristen’s house in Los Feliz. After spending some quality time together, Rob promised Kristen that he would not date any of her friends and would stop seeing Riley!
Our source says, “Rob did tell people that he reassured her that he wasn’t going to date her friends and make things more awkward between them, because the breakup is and has been awkward enough.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers: did Rob do the noble thing by splitting up with Riley, or should he have followed his heart and stayed with her?
