Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson might be soul mates in the movies, but in real life, Pattinson has a new leading lady. As revealed in the Aug. 5 issue of Us Weekly, the Twilight actor, 27, has been "hanging out and hooking up" with longtime pal Riley Keough, whom he met through her mom, Lisa Marie Presley.
"She's the first girl he's liked since Kristen," one insider says of Keough, 24, the granddaughter of the late Elvis Presley. "[They're] having a lot of fun."
Keough, who appeared with Pattinson's ex Stewart in 2010's The Runaways, was most recently linked to her Magic Mike costar Alex Pettyfer. (She even sported an engagement ring from the actor for a short time in 2012.)
Pattinson, meanwhile, ended his tumultuous four-year relationship with Stewart back in May, after struggling to get over her July 2012 fling with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. "He really put her through the ringer," a source told Us after their breakup. "Ultimately, it was like, 'Either we move past this or we don't. It wasn't good for either of them."
Hanging out with Keough, on the other hand, could be just what Pattinson needs to get his groove back and regain his footing in the dating world. "He's scared of meeting anyone new," an insider told Us shortly after his split from Stewart. "So many people are after him for the wrong reasons."
