The 27-year-old British actor was spotted in Loz Feliz, Los Angeles, on Saturday driving with a mystery woman around in his battered pick-up truck with a new ping-pong table loaded up in the back.
And now the female in question has been recognized as actress Riley Keough, who is alleged to be now dating the Twilight star. Robert who recently split in relation with co-star Kristen Stewart
Riley Keough was the granddaughter o f Elvis Presley, she is previously worked with R-Patz’s ex Kristen on 2010 film The Runaways and engaged to Alex Pettyfer. She has always been close to the former couple, attending Kristen’s birthday party at Mexican cantina Malo back in April.
Rob took the actress – who looks a lot like his former flame – back to his nearby mansion – perhaps so the pair could try out the new table tennis table for themselves.
Wearing a check shirt with sunglasses and what looks like a back to front baseball cap Rob was spotted driving his red Chevy Silverado truck through Loz Feliz on Saturday afternoon.
His passenger wore her bright red hair down and was dressed in a green T-shirt and was wearing large eye-glasses too.
It was recently revealed Robert is writing songs to help get over his split from Kristen but is not planning to make them public.
A source said: “Rob’s always had half a mind on his music, but when his film career and relationship with Kristen both took off at the same time, something else had to give.
“He’s really enjoyed picking up his guitar again properly and it has given him something to focus on during the break-up. Everyone’s saying that he’s really talented, but he’s adamant we’ll only be seeing him in films for the time being.”
Robert’s musical efforts have previously seen him record two tracks for the original ‘Twilight’ soundtrack, ‘Never Think’ and ‘Let Me Sign’.
He has also previously said he originally wanted to be a musician rather than an actor.
He said: “I love the piano. I never really had any aspirations to be an actor when I was young. I wanted to play the piano in a bar, to be the old dude with a whiskey glass.”
The pair are said to have split for a second time after Kristen got back in touch with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, who she confessed to having an affair with last year behind Robert’s back.
