Amidst Orlando Bloom’s alleged cheating with Selena Gomez, HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that Katy Perry has turned to her longtime friend, Robert Pattinson.
Katy Perry, 31, definitely needs a shoulder to cry on as she deals with all of the speculation about her man, Orlando Bloom, 39, and his alleged fling, Selena Gomez, 23. Thankfully, she has her BFF Robert Pattinson, 29, who knows exactly what she’s going through.
If you’re worried about Katy Perry, don’t be. Despite likely being absolutely heartbroken over her most recent boyfriend, Orlando, being photographed getting a little too close for comfort with rumored fling Selena, it turns out that she has a really amazing support system standing by her.
“Katy reached out to Rob and he’s been giving her a ton of support,” a source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They spent quite a bit of time together at the Met Gala and Rob knew how much Orlando meant to Katy. He basically just let Katy know that he’s there for her anytime she needs to talk.” How sweet is that?
Of course, it’s no surprise that Rob is such an incredible friend during Katy’s current predicament. After all, he experienced a similar situation when his former girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, was photographed cheating on him with director Rupert Sanders.
“When Rob and Kristen split up, Katy was without a doubt Rob’s rock,” our source also shared. “They have always remained close friends regardless of distance or their busy schedules.”
Well, we are definitely glad to hear that Katy has someone keeping her chin up right now. The most recent evidence that Orlando may have cheated with Selena was a shocking video showing the two of them piling into the back of a car together after their touchy-feely club appearance, which was definitely a second low-blow to Katy.
