Rihanna has has a bumpy few weeks, which have been full of rumors and a revealing interview with Oprah which saw her break down and cry at the mention of her abusive ex, Chris Brown. Now, more rumors are flying that the songstress has been sending some flirty texts to Robert Pattinson to "cheer him up" after the news broke that longtime girlfriend and "trampire" Kristen Stewart cheated on him with her "Snow White And The Huntsman" director.
The rumor appears to have been started in OK! Magazine, where a "friend" of Rihanna's said that the singer has had a crush on Pattinson for a long time, but never made a move because he was attached.
"RiRi thinks he’s very cute, but nothing ever came of it because he was attached to Kristen — and it’s not her style to steal someone else’s man," the source said.
Pattinson has been very close-mouthed about the cheating scandal and has only briefly touched upon it in interviews in a roundabout way. He maintains that he's "homeless" since moving out of the house he shared with Stewart and has been crashing with friends (most notably his "Water For Elephants" co-star Reese Witherspoon).
Of course, the texting rumors are just that, and it could be that fans are making a mountain out of a molehill. But if these two are indeed getting friendly, it could be the thing that finally breaks the internet.
