Katy Perry Begs Robert Pattinson To ‘Go Out And Have Fun’ Following Kristen Stewart Affair

Robert Pattinson has been urged by close friend Katy Perry to “go out and have fun” according to sources close to the couple and despite her own break up with John Mayer, has been doing everything she can to help her friend following his split from Kristen Stewart after she cheated on him with Rupert Sanders.

The couple enjoyed an intimate dinner last Thursday night at the Soho House in West Hollywood, where Katy took the opportunity to tell Rob he needed to move on from his heartbreak.

Knowing what it was to go through a very public break up, she divorced first husband Russell Brand earlier this year after 14 months of marriage, the 27 year-old has been desperate to help the ‘Twilight’ hunk.

A source told HollywoodLife.com, “Last Thursday night, Katy and Rob met up at the Soho House in West Hollywood for a bite to eat. They are close friends and can just be themselves when they are with each other.

“Katy has been trying to be as supportive as she can for Rob. She understands what he’s going through and wants to help him. Katy has been urging Rob to go out and be silly and have fun!”

Awkwardly though, Katy and Rob almost ran into Katy’s most recent fling John Mayer who arrived at Soho House only 15 minutes after the singer made a sharp exit.

The source explained: “Katy only stayed for about an hour and lucky for her because John Mayer ended up showing up to the Soho House about an hour later and was flirting with some girls. Rob left about 15 minutes after John arrived. The two did not interact.”

One way that Katy might be encouraging the actor to “have fun” is setting him up with her very single and very sexy BFF Rihanna. The ‘Talk That Talk’ babe is said to have been getting pretty friendly over texts with the hunk since a ‘close mutual friend’ gave her his number. We wonder who that could be?

A source told OK! Magazine: “She got Rob’s phone number from a mutual friend and has been sending him sexy, funny texts to cheer him up,”

And the 24 year-old is said to be keen to take things further than just a few texts: “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.”

If Katy did set the couple up, she will just be returning the favour after Rob set her up with Florence and the Machine rocker Robert Ackroyd who has been seen out on a string of dates with the ‘Part of Me’ singer over the last few months.

But who will be Rob’s next girlfriend? Bookies favourite is indie movie beauty Elizabeth Olsen!
