Following news that actor Robert Pattinson has moved on from his "Twilight" costar Kristen Stewart to rock 'n' roll royalty Riley Keough, new reports have surfaced claiming that the actress has found love with 32-year-old “Boardwalk Empire” star Michael Pitt.
According to a report from the Sun, the acting duo was spotted getting close at the Chanel Haute Couture Show in Paris on July 2. “Kristen’s not over Rob but she’s getting there and Michael’s helping her through it,” said a source. The rumored couple reportedly bonded over their desire to live a low-key life, and a source said, “They both hate the spotlight and are smart bookworm types.”
Allegedly Stewart was planning to remain single following her highly publicized split from Pattinson, her “Twilight” on-screen lover turned off-screen boyfriend of more than three years, in May. “She vowed to throw herself into work and be single this summer,” said a source. “But when she met Michael last week, they hit it off.”
Despite claims that Stewart is dating Pitt, the HBO star's heart already belongs to another woman. Pitt is reportedly engaged to his girlfriend of 10 years, model Jame Bouchert, who was working the Chanel show where he met the actress. While Stewart has remained mum regarding the dating rumor, a rep for Pitt confirmed to E News! Monday that he's not romantically attached to the “Twilight” star. “We do not comment on our clients’ personal lives, please know that there is absolutely no truth whatsoever to this rumor that Michael Pitt and Kristen Stewart are dating.”
According to a report in May from E News!, Pattinson, 27, and Stewart, 23, ended their relationship after what a source claimed was an issue related to “priorities.” Multiple sources reported that pop singer Katy Perry also “played a role" in the breakup.
