Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry have not been flirting behind FKA Twigs’ back, despite a completely bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this fake news.

An article in the latest issue of the National Enquirer quotes a supposed “source” as saying, “Rob and Katy have been texting and talking nonstop since she and Orlando [Bloom] split. It’s all done below the radar because Twigs would flip a rod if she found out.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “They always call each other ‘babe’ and ‘honey’ and sign off with kissing emojis and xoxo’s.”

The magazine’s questionable source goes on to insist the actor and singer are more than platonic friends, adding, “Rob’s always had the hots for Katy and would jump at the chance to date her again.” Of course, the two were never romantically involved, so this “insider” knowledge is entirely untrustworthy. Regardless, the seemingly phony source adds, “Katy is Rob’s dream woman. His friends have been saying for years they’re destined to wind up together.”

Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a source close to Pattinson, who exclusively assures us the outlet’s report is completely “false.” Similarly, a mutual pal of ours and Perry assures us she and the actor are “good friends,” but there’s “no truth” to the magazine’s flirting claims. This is simply a non-issue.

Of course, the tabloids have been trying to romantically link Pattinson and Perry for years, so this latest attempt isn’t surprising. Back when the actor was dating Kristen Stewart, we called out the Enquirer for wrongly reporting he was flirting with Perry behind his then-girlfriend’s back. We also previously busted the outlet’s sister publication, OK!, for falsely claiming Perry might get pregnant from having casual sex with Pattinson. This latest article about the pair is equally baseless.
