For years, Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson’s closest friends have been hoping they’d get together. After all, the superstar pals have counseled each other through their darkest moments — Rob was Katy’s shoulder to cry on when her marriage to Russell Brand fell apart, and she returned that favor when his girlfriend Kristen Stewart got caught cheating.
But their romantic timing was always off…until now! According to witnesses, the actor and “Birthday” singer were “all over each other” at a June 12 party for his film The Rover.
“When Rob saw Katy, his eyes lit up,” an source from the after party says. “They hugged and kissed. In fact, Rob kept kissing and making out with her all night long!”
The Twilight star had other friends at the event — including Zac Efron, Michelle Rodriguez and even his mom — but he kept Katy in his line of sight at all times. By midnight, the duo were among the last guests remaining. “As the party wound down, Rob walked over to Katy and they kissed again,” the spy adds. “They were clearly trying to stay under the radar, but their feelings for each other were obvious!”
