Remember those rumors that model Dylan Penn was dating actor Robert Pattinson? Well, according to Penn, her alleged rendezvous with the “Twilight” star never happened.
For the first time since becoming a household name among Twihards for her rumored affair with the British actor earlier this year, Penn spoke out about her dating history in the latest issue of GQ this week. “We’re talking about Rob here?” asked the aspiring screenwriter turned model, adding, “That’s been very foreign to me. But actually kind of funny, because it’s all bulls—t.”
Rumors that Pattinson, 27, was dating the 22-year-old (daughter of actors Sean Penn and Robin Wright) first gained traction in September after Life & Style reported that the twosome was seen “getting cozy” at a Los Angeles nightclub. “They were touchy feely and very flirtatious,” an insider told the magazine, adding confirmation that the duo appeared comfortable around one another. “You could tell they’ve hung out a few times,” said the source.

According to the initial report, the pair extended their date night by moving the party to Pattinson’s Los Feliz, Calif., home with a group of friends in tow. Allegedly, Penn stayed behind with the “Twilight” star after the other guests parted ways at 5 a.m.
Despite multiple reports that the duo was getting hot and heavy following Pattinson’s split from his former on and off-screen lover, actress Kristen Stewart, in May, another report backs up Penn’s claims. According to an article published by Us Weekly in October, Penn refused to date Pattinson due to her fear of losing her anonymity. “She doesn’t want to be known as Rob’s girlfriend,” said a source, adding, “She’s afraid to get serious with him and lose her privacy.”
