On Jan. 6, as rumors of Robert Pattinson striking up a romance with Kristen Stewart’s friend Nettie Wakefield surfaced, Kristen was seen driving around Los Angeles with her BFF CJ Romero. Is she leaning on CJ during a hard time?
Everybody needs a friend when their former flame is spotted out with a potential new love interest, and apparently Kristen Stewart is no different. On Jan. 6, right as reports surfaced that Robert Pattinson was getting “touchy-feely” with the former couple’s mutual friend Nettie Wakefield, Kristen was spotted out in L.A. with her best friend CJ Romero. Hopefully, CJ is helping her get her mind off of Rob!
Kristen Stewart Steps Out With CJ Romero
Rob has been spotted out and about everywhere from London to New York lately, but one person he hasn’t been seen with is Kristen. Luckily, Kristen has been keeping busy with friends — CJ is one of her best; he even accompanied her to Berlin as she filmed Sils Maria.
The duo was spotted out and about in Los Angeles on Jan. 6, as Kristen drove CJ around in a very casual backwards hat, white t-shirt, and sunglasses. They appear to be deep in conversation — let’s hope for Kristen’s sake that there was much more to discuss than Rob’s latest dating rumor!
Robert Pattinson Getting ‘Touchy-Feely’ With Nettie Wakefield
Poor Kristen! We hope this isn’t true — according to a source close to Rob, the actor has been getting a bit too close to his longtime friend Nettie. A report in The Sun claims: “They were very touchy-feely [out in London]. They were trying to keep a low profile but Rob teased Nettie by messing with her hair and they had a flirty play fight. Afterwards they were giggling like teenagers.”
However, there is some good news — a source close to HollywoodLife.com tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Nettie might have been helping Rob with a Christmas present for Kristen.
“Rob spent some time with Nettie over the holidays in London,” a source told HollywoodLife.com. “She’s an incredible contemporary artist, known for her portrait drawings. Rob and Kristen are both collectors of her work. It wouldn’t surprise me if Rob was commissioning her to do something cool for Kristen as a Christmas or New Year’s gift. Rob and Kristen have very similar tastes when it comes to artwork and Nettie is also a very dear friend.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you glad that Kristen is out and about with CJ?
