Robert Pattinson broke up with Kristen Stewart because Katy Perry told him to, says Life & Style. The tabloid, which falsely claimed Stewart and Pattinson were set for a “secret wedding” last year, now claims that the “real reason” for their reported split is that Perry urged her pal Pattinson to dump Stewart.

“Katy told Rob she didn’t think their relationship could withstand the cheating scandal,” explains a so-called “insider” for Life & Style, referring to Stewart’s past indiscretion with Rupert Sanders. The mag’s source adds, “And he deserved better than someone who would destroy a family [like Rupert’s].”

Life & Style alleges that Pattinson tried to make things work and agonized over the decision, and was able to do so with the support of Perry. “Katy liked Kristen, but ultimately she’s loyal to Rob and wants that’s best for him,” says the tab’s spy. “I know he always leans on her during hard times, and Katy would do anything for him.” Enough.

Outlets have been trying to drag Perry into the Stewart-Pattinson saga for years, mostly because she’s a huge name the tabloids love to exploit. But while she and Pattinson are indeed friends, and while he seems to be in a relationship transition, the notion that one has anything to do with the other is pure fiction.

Pattinson is a grown man, and his decisions are his own, even though Life & Style would love to portray Perry’s supposed distrust of Stewart as the “real reason” behind recent events. The magazine has never had a good handle on Pattinson’s love life, and the streak continues here.
