Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart joined friends in London at Mestizo Restaurant and Tequila Bar on New Year’s Eve.
A source told Hollywoodlife.com, “Rob has been there before!” and added, “They held hands as they left and Rob was seen smoking an e-cig at one point.”
The pair were also seen getting off the tube at London Victoria. Kristen had been in town to be with Rob’s family for Christmas.
Now it’s being reported that the couple are house hunting and are interested in the Richmond neighborhood in London.
“Ever since Kristen’s affair last year, Rob has realized just how much his friends and family in the UK mean to him,” a source told The Daily Mirror.
The insider said, “After spending more time here in recent months, Rob’s decided he wants to split his time more between London and Los Angeles. He wants to put down roots in London and he’s doing it with Kristen.”
“He’s told her that if she wants to make things work, she’s going to have to accept that he wants to spend much more time in London. They decided to base themselves in Richmond, South-West London, so Rob can be close to his parents’ home in Barnes. Rob knows the area as he attended Tower House, a prep school near Richmond Park. So his dad Richard put him in touch with an estate agent who lined up appointments.”
One home they’re interested in has a graveyard, werewolf kennels, blood red walls and an ‘LA’ feel to it.
The source added, “It’s on the market for millions. With their hectic filming schedules they want somewhere they can live in straight away and it has a beautiful garden too. They both fell in love with the property as soon as they saw it. Kristen’s really excited about the prospect of spending more time in the UK and has been saying how she’d love to star in a West End show.”
