Robert Pattinson has been cozying to friend Katy Perry following her devastating split from John Mayer,” claims OK! And according to the tabloid’s headline, they are “friends with benefits.” The mag even has a so-called “source” say that Pattinson and Perry always had a “really flirtatious relationship,” and that the singer has “joked that Rob would make an excellent revenge hookup!”

But there is no hookup. And the two stars are not engaging in the type of “benefits” OK! would like its readers to believe. Gossip Cop checked in with a number of reliable sources, who alternately called the tabloid’s report “nonsense,” “untrue,” and a couple of words we can’t even use. Of course, OK! is the same magazine that ran a cover story two years ago, claiming Kristen Stewart was having Pattinson’s baby.
