Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller are not dating, despite a new tabloid report claiming the two are more than friends. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the romance rumors. A rep for the actress confirms they’re just pals.
A headline in the latest issue of OK! reads, “Rob & Sienna: It’s On!” The accompanying article says the actor and actress have had a “flirty friendship” for years, but they’re starting to take their relationship “to the next level.” An alleged insider tells the magazine, “They’ve always had a great connection, but one of them was always with someone else, so it stayed platonic. Now that they’re both single, the door is open for them to give this a real shot.”
The supposed source goes on to say that all of Pattinson and Miller’s mutual friends think they’d be a “good match,” despite the actor being close friends with her ex-fiance Tom Sturridge, with whom she shares a child. What the magazine doesn’t mention is that Miller and Sturridge set Pattinson up with FKA Twigs back in 2014, so it’s unlikely the actress had always wanted to date the Twilight star, considering she introduced him to a woman who would later become his fiancee.
The tabloid’s report is also based on the claims of an anonymous and seemingly nonexistent “insider,” but Miller’s own spokesperson tells Gossip Cop on the record that she and Pattinson aren’t an item. It’s also quite telling that the publication stays somewhat vague as to whether or not Pattinson and Miller are actually a couple. The magazine uses terms such as “the door is open” for a relationship and “friends think” they’d make a good couple. Unfortunately, websites such as HollywoodLife and RadarOnline are spreading the false romance rumors online.
Last month, Gossip Cop busted the Australian version of OK! for a similarly bogus report about Pattinson and Miller dating. A rep for the actress denied that story as well, and there’s been no indication in the time since that the two are seeing each other. They haven’t been spotted together at all in the past few weeks.
Of course, OK! is hardly a reliable source for accurate information about the actor’s love life. In April, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for falsely claiming that Pattinson was getting back together with Kristen Stewart. That obviously didn’t happen, so the untrustworthy magazine has decided to pair him up with Miller instead. In reality, the actor and actress have been friends for years and their dynamic remains the same.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
