Since word got out about Robert Pattinson being humiliated and left heartbroken by girlfriend Kristen Stewart's indiscretions with married director Rupert Sanders, people have been reaching out to comfort the Twilight star — including Rihanna.
According to OK! magazine, the sultry singer has been sending Rob messages to show her support.
“She got Rob’s phone number from a mutual friend and has been sending him sexy, funny texts to cheer him up. At first, Rob thought someone Punk’d him. Eventually Rihanna convinced him she was for real, but Rob has been resisting her.”
The two have met at events over the years in passing, and a source tells the mag she's had a crush on him forever.
"RiRi thinks he's very cute, but nothing ever came of it because he was attached to Kristen — and it's not her style to steal someone else's man."
Although Rob isn't ready to hang out with other women, pals are encouraging him to do so. The insider says, "Rihanna would love to meet up with him and Rob's friends keep telling him he has to start enjoying life again. What better person to help cheer him up than Rihanna?"
What do you think of Robert and Rihanna getting together?
