Robert Pattinson and Jennifer Lawrence Dating, Going To Oscars Together?
It had to happen: A tabloid is linking Robert Pattinson to Jennifer Lawrence, calling them a “new power couple.” According to Australian Grazia, “After struggling to make it work with Kristen Stewart and finally calling it quits on their four-year relationship, Robert Pattinson has set his sights on her rival Jennifer Lawrence. Ouch!”
“He believes actress-of-the-moment J-Law is the perfect replacement — and it seems the feeling is mutual,” alleges the magazine. “She invited him as her date to the Oscars!” Grazia says Pattinson and Lawrence “are in constant contact via secret phone chats and jokey texts.” Uh-huh.
We know tabloids with nothing better to do like to concoct fake Lawrence and Stewart feud and rivalry tales. And that Grazia floats bogus “secretly dating” stories about celebrities.
As soon as Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult split, outlets raced to score a bombshell “scoop” about whom she might date next, with Bradley Cooper the first big name to pop up in rumors. Even after Lawrence denied dating Cooper, the rumors continued because that’s what tabloids do. They run whatever speculative, sensationalized garbage they think will sell, regardless of reality. Which is how we come to this new Grazia story about Pattinson leaving Stewart for Lawrence.
It is complete and utter nonsense. There is no truth to the story. It makes for a great headline, which is why Grazia ran it — but sources close to the situation tell Gossip Cop the romance rumors are “totally false.” And a Lawrence insider informs us the supposed Oscar date with Pattinson is “not true.” When nothing actually transpires between Pattinson and Lawrence in the coming weeks, expect Grazia and the outlets blindly picking up this rumor to pretend they never did.
