Robert Pattinson might not be single much longer. A new report claims he and Rihanna have been exchanging "sexy, funny texts" recently.
Rihanna reportedly began texting Pattinson after news broke that Kristen Stewart had cheated on her longtime boyfriend, according to an article published in OK! Magazine via Hollywood Life.
“They’ve met several times at award bashes over the years,” a friend of the singer reportedly told the magazine. “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.”
“She got Rob’s phone number from a mutual friend and has been sending him sexy, funny texts to cheer him up,” the source continued to OK! Magazine. “At first, Rob thought someone Punk’d him. Eventually Rihanna convinced him she was for real, but Rob has been resisting her.”
Pattinson's friends have reportedly told him to "start enjoying life again."
News broke that Stewart had cheated on Pattinson with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders in late July and the "Twilight" actress was quick to issue a public apology to her boyfriend via People magazine.
As for Rihanna's love life, the 24-year-old gave a candid interview to Oprah Winfrey which aired on the OWN Network's "Oprah's Next Chapter" in which she revealed that she is single but still loves Chris Brown, whom she broke up with in 2009 after he assaulted her.
"We've been working on our friendship again," a tearful Rihanna explained to Winfrey. "We've built a trust again. We love each other and we probably always will and that's not anything that we're gonna try to change. That's not something you can shut off if you've ever been in love. We've worked on it little by little. It's not easy. The main thing for me is that he's at peace."
Pattinson may not be the only guy catching the R&B singer's eye.
Rihanna was recently spotted with Rob Kardashian racing go-karts at the Racer's Edge Indoor Karting track in Burbank, Calif., according to Yahoo! News. The two have people wondering if love is blossoming or if they are just good friends.
