Rob was spotted by a photographer Sunday (May 19), loading his red pickup truck with his personal belongings, including his bike, a suitcase and other bags likely filled with clothes.
Beside him in the front seat were his pooches, Bear and Bernie.
Later that night, Rob went out with friends and was spotted around 1 a.m. at Teddy’s, a bar at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, according to People. By that hour of the morning, the actor seemed at ease and was “all smiles,” a source told the magazine.
“He sat on the couch at his table and sipped on multiple vodka cocktails throughout the evening,” the source said.
“You’d never know he had just gone through a breakup. He was smiling the entire night and was in a really good mood. There wasn’t a trace of sadness on his face.”
Is there a chance the nature of his split with Kristen is being overblown? Yes. It’s possible Rob just wanted more space after finding it difficult to live with Kristen. So he headed back to his own pad, only a short distance from Kristen’s house in the same neighborhood.
Don’t believe the tabloid report that they have decided it’s okay to date other people. The source, HollywoodLife, is totally unreliable.
In any case, what is known is that Rob spent most of the night “chatting with a brunette.” Sounds like he was looking for a sympathetic ear. Nothing physical happened and the left separately.
Also discount the report that Katy Perry had something to do with the breakup. She and Rob are reportedly friends after Rob provided a sympathetic shoulder for Katy during her divorce from husband Russell Brand. After all, Brand is English and so is Rob.
Katy may be returning the favor now, but their friendship is unlikely to go any further. Rob loves music, and if he falls for anyone after Kristen it’s likely to be a musician. But he’s into indie rock, not Katy’s brand of pop music. Plus their backgrounds are way too different.
You may recall, Katy and Kristen were really tight at the Kid’s Choice Awards back in March. She’s as much her friend as she is Rob’s.
Rob was enamored with Kristen because he thought she really understood who he was and what he was going through with the “Twilight” craziness. He trusted her totally, and her affair with Rupert Sanders really blew him away.
Meanwhile, reports that Kristen has turned to Taylor Swift for support seem a little far fetched. If anything, Taylor tends to be judgmental when it comes to relationships. There is no way she could accept Kristen’s affair, for the same reason she thinks Justin Bieber is a cad.
That’s not to say Kristen isn’t leaning on friends.
Rob has a number of eligible leading ladies to choose from, but for Stewart it’s all downhill from here. Plus, she definitely has a thing for older men. But don’t look for either of them to start dating other people, again, anytime soon. The hurt just cuts too deep.
