Kristen Stewart caused quite the media buzz this weekend, snagging multiple Razzie awards for her "mundane" performance in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" and for limping her way down the Red Carpet at Sunday evening's 85th annual Academy Awards. But of course Hollywood Life had to drag some Robert Pattinson relationship drama into the gossip mix, reporting that Stewart attempted to make her "Twilight" beau jealous on Friday night (Feb. 22) by flirting and partying with her longtime pal, CJ Romero. Apparently K-Stew "limped" into Romero's arms in a more-than-friendly way while hanging out with a group of guy friends in Los Feliz... and she did it while wearing one of R-Patz's shirts! But it looks like the seedy gossip outlet is just trying to make a big deal out of nothing (again) - Gossip Cop confirms that the embrace was totally platonic and that Romero is no way interested in Stewart romantically.
A recent Hollywood Life report exclaims:
Look away Rob! While R-Patz is busying filming 'The Rover' in Australia, Kristen was spotted jumping into the arms of a male companion in Los Angeles. Is she moving on from Rob?
The site alleges that K-Stew suffered a "mysterious foot injury" after flirtatiously leaping into a young "mystery" man's arms on Friday. Turns out the guy is just CJ Romero... the duo has been friends for years. The report goes so far as to suggest that Romero "put his hands on Stewart's butt" during the embrace. Not only that, but the "On the Road" starlet was sporting R-Patz's shirt at-the-time (a vintage tee that advertises a grocery store in Cincinnati).
Apparently, this was all a part of Stewart's master plan to get Pattenson jealous as he continues to film in Australia. Right...
Hollywood Life continues, "She was hanging with a group of friends in her Loz Feliz neighborhood, including Marcus Foster and Jack Standen, and they were seen going in and out of a private home."
So what - just because Pattinson's away, Stewart isn't allowed to hang out with mutual friends without it looking "suspicious?"
Yes, Stewart has been spending a lot of time with Romero and some other friends lately. Is that such a horrible thing? No - and it doesn't necessarily mean that she's going to cheat on R-Patz just because he's currently on a different continent.
As Gossip Cop reports, sources close to Romero insist that no romantic feelings exist between the two good friends. And that's that. In fact, it's probably a good thing that Stewart is going out more, instead of obsessing about R-Patz alone at home.
