Stewart out, new love in for Robert Pattinson


It’s out with the old and in with the new and for Twilight star Robert Pattinson. After splitting from his much-publicised romance with fellow Twilight star Kristen Stewart earlier this year, the British actor is said to be hanging out and hooking up with another starlet, Riley Keough.

Pattinson and Stewart broke up a few months ago, not long after Stewart admitted to having an affair with Rupert Sanders, the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman.

The 22-year old Stewart has reportedly already met Pattinson’s new love, albeit by chance. Stewart ran into Keough at a Joan Jett concert at West Hollywood’s House of Blues. The pair previously worked together in the movie The Runaways in 2010. The film was a biopic of Jett’s life.

K-Stew is reported to have called Keough, who just happens to be the granddaughter of American rock legend Elvis Presley, and expressed her displeasure with the reported romance between herself and Pattinson.

Keough has in the meantime been spotted with her ex-boyfriend Alex Pettyfer while Pattinson’s car was spotted at Kristen Stewart’s house over the weekend.
