(Newser) – If you were less than thrilled to learn that Rihanna chose to move on with Rob Kardashian of all people, perhaps you'll be happier to hear that she's also apparently trying to move on with a slightly classier Rob: Robert Pattinson. The Twilight star has been getting "sexy, funny texts" from Rihanna "to cheer him up" since Kristen Stewart cheated on him, a source tells OK! The two have met a few times and Rihanna "thinks he's very cute," the source continues, but until Kristen was out of the picture she didn't want to make a move.

But so far, "Rob has been resisting her," the source says. Rihanna is far from the only new lady who's been linked to Rob, The Stir notes—there have also been rumors about him and Katy Perry, and word on the street is that Kate Upton likes him too. Speaking of Katy Perry, her ex Russell Brand has also moved on—with Geri Halliwell, perhaps better known as "Ginger Spice." The two are "very serious," sources tell the Sun. (Things are not so good for Perry, though; she reportedly broke up with John Mayer after a very short romance.)
