Robert Pattinson and Emma Watson are not developing a romance, despite an inaccurate report in one of this week’s tabloids. The article claims sparks are flying between the former co-stars, but Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can exclusively set the record straight.

The actor and actress first met while filming 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and now according to the National Enquirer, their relationship is heating up all these years later. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “They talk every night, and it’s pretty obvious this is going further than it ever has… They’re going for it!”

The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “They’re finding out if this spark is here to stay, and are hoping it can turn into something serious and long-term. They’re both older and wiser after being in other relationships.” The seemingly phony source concludes, “They’ve each been around the block a few times and they know what they want.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Watson, who exclusively assures us on background the tabloid’s story is simply “not true.” A Pattinson insider also dismissed the dating rumors. In fact, this isn’t the first time the two have been wrongly linked. When asked at the 2009 premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince if she and Pattinson got close on set, Watson said, “We’re just friends, but he sure was great to work with.” Nothing has changed in the time since.

Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the Enquirer’s inaccurate story, considering that the tabloid often makes phony assertions about the Twilight star’s love life. Earlier this year, Gossip Cop busted the outlet for falsely claiming Pattinson was heavily flirting with Katy Perry, who’s also just a friend. This latest article regarding the nature of his relationship with Watson is equally bogus.
