Robert Pattinson might be a bit down in the dumps at the moment after discovering that Kristen Stewart was cheating on him, but it seems that every cloud has a silver lining as the stars' 'split' has reportedly led Rihanna to start sending him sexy texts.
According to OK! Magazine Rihanna has always fancied Rob, and now he's single she's planning to make her move. A friend of the 'Pon De Replay' singer told the mag: "They’ve met several times at award bashes over the years. 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.”
They said: “She got Rob’s phone number from a mutual friend and has been sending him sexy, funny texts to cheer him up,” which sounds pretty pleasant for Rob, and apparently after initially believing someone was having him on, he may now be game for experiencing the Bajan seductress' charms.
The friend said: “At first, Rob thought someone Punk’d him. Eventually Rihanna convinced him she was for real, but Rob has been resisting her.”
However despite Rob still pining for his 'Twilight' co-star Kristen, his friends are urging to put himself out there again, possibly with RiRi.
The pal added: “Rihanna would love to meet up with him. And Rob’s friends keep telling him he has to start enjoying life again. What better person to help cheer him up than Rihanna?”
So what do you think Robert Pattinson and Rihanna, or Rih-Pattz as they shall hence be known, dating heaven for heartbroken Rob? Or a spectacularly bad idea?
