(UPDATE: Riley’s rep has confirmed to Just Jared that she is not dating Robert Pattinson. The rep states, “Riley isn’t dating Rob. And I can confirm that Riley was not photographed at all this weekend.”)
Robert Pattinson is reportedly dating Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough. The 24-year-old model and actress is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough. The two were seen driving around in L.A. over the weekend sparking rumors that the two are more than just pals.
What’s interesting is that if the story is true – Riley is friends with Kristen Stewart. They co-starred in The Runaways together and she attended her 23rd birthday party in April.
Referring to Robert and Riley – a source told the MailOnline, “They’re inseparable. Rob loves the fact that Riley is Elvis’s granddaughter – that’s true Rock’n’Roll royalty in his eyes.”
The pair have been mingling in the same Dior circles too. Robert is face of Dior Homme while Riley until recently was the face of Dior Cherie.
The source added, “Riley was always Kristen’s friend dating back from their time filming The Runaways but recently Rob and Riley been spending much more time together since meeting through their Dior modelling connection and Riley has stayed over at Rob’s Los Feliz apartment. They have a lot in common- they both love LA, London, rock music and table tennis.”
The source continued that Kristen is supposedly “livid” and revealed she feels that she acted as mentor to Riley on her first film The Runaways, introduced her to Rob and encouraged her to make a career of acting. Rob has been made aware through friends that she is devastated.
“Kristen is emotionally volatile at best of times and flew off the handle when she found out about Rob’s liaison with Riley. She’s told Rob via friends she feels violated.”
