Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson have been pals for months. Last week, they were seen having dinner with a group of friends. They enjoyed a variety of cuisines at Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, California. There was a big table with various guests, and Katy and Robert were sitting next to each other. ET Online reported on 9 August that an "eyewitness tells ET that Perry arrived at the hot spot just after 9 p.m. and was seated next to Pattinson at a back corner table."

Two years ago, Pattinson and FKA Twigs posed for pictures with Perry at an event.

At that time, rumors surfaced online that Katy was in a serious relationship with Robert. The two stars were subject to romance rumors in the past – but Perry decided to shut them down.

Katy Perry on her relationship with Robert Pattinson

“I sent Kristen Steward a text message in the past. I knew she’d seen all this stuff, but I would never disrespect her,” Katy Perry told ET Online.

Despite her above statement, Katy got cozy with Robert on Saturday which makes us wonder if they are in a relationship. Gossip Cop was quick to debunk the claim that Robert was hooking up with Katy. According to the news website, the former partners of Orlando Bloom and Kristen Steward enjoyed time together over the weekend.

They were eating with a few close friends but separated from the crowd.

What do their fans say?

Fans also speculate that Pattinson and Perry have been seeing each other for months. According to E! Online, this came amid reports that the “New Moon” actor is affianced to FKA Twigs. Katy is considered a sex symbol; Elle described her body as though "sketched by a teenage boy." When it comes to social media, Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson surpassed Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.

Forbes reported in June that Katy won the Guinness World Record for most Twitter followers and is the first person to gain millions of fans on the site. Robert Pattinson also has a large number of followers on Twitter and Instagram. The two often share photos of themselves, their friends, and family members.

While these romance rumors could be true, Gossip Cop said that the reports are completely made up.

According to US Weekly, Katy revealed that she and Robert were close friends. The “Thinking of You” singer added that she treated him as a brother. There are even recent reports, again debunked by Gossip Cop, that if Katy is getting cozy to Pattinson then it would just be to try further her own career. Irrespective, right now Robert Pattinson is engaged to FKA Twig.
