It's been a tough week for Robert Pattinson. First his girlfriend cheats on him, then tabloids, gossip rags, and media outlets make all the details public record. You would think that after all this emotional distress, he would be looking for a shoulder to cry on, right?

Look no further than international superstar Katy Perry, who has reportedly been there to pick up the pieces in the wake of the whole cheating saga. Apparently, Pattinson and Perry have gotten closer in the days following Kristen Stewart's public admittance and subsequent apology for hooking up with director Rupert Sanders

"Katy has been a rock for Rob," an insider told the Daily Star. "She has reassured him she is very much there for him just as he was for her when she split from Russell [Brand]. She has urged him to take a break with [Kristen]."

Now that the two are single, could their friendship be progressing into something more? Stay tuned for developments. This is shaping up to be a romance drama with lots of plot twists and turns.
