Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs are officially over and seems that Katy Perry is stepping up to support Robert during this difficult time. The split doesn’t exactly come as a surprise, however, as there have been many reports that the two were not doing so well and had even called off their engagement.
Robert and Twigs made their last red carpet appearance together at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in May. To fan the separation flames further, Robert was spotted getting “extremely affectionate”with longtime friend Katy Perry in early August during a dinner outing in Hollywood.
A source revealed:
“Rob has been leaning a lot on Katy since his split with FKA Twigs. They talk on the phone regularly and make sure to see each other when they both aren’t away working. Katy has always been a good friend to Rob over the years and has been there for him emotionally. They have many common interests and also both know how to have fun and party. Although they have been flirtatiously romantic, they have still remained good friends. Rob loves that Katy is a free spirit and she has given him good advice when it comes to relationships. Since Katy has been busy on tour, her and Rob will FaceTime and text when possible. She wants to make sure he is doing OK. Rob knows how good of a friend she is and he was also there for her when she was going through her divorce. They lean on each other.”
