Both recently unlucky in love, recent rumors have implied that Katy Perry and Rob Pattinson may be hanging out as more than just friends.
The longtime friends were seen at dinner at L.A.'s SoHo House where onlookers said they got very close.
"She was jokey with him and a little touchy-feely," an eyewitness said, according to Us Weekly. "They were flirting."
Pattinson was reportedly "devastated" by his failed relationship with girlfriend and "Twilight" co-star Kristen Stewart, who publicly apologized for having cheated on the actor with the director of her latest movie.
The couple had been dating for almost two years, and the 26-year-old British star was rumored to have plans to propose to Stewart in the near future.
Meanwhile, Perry was romantically linked to singer John Mayer for a very brief period of time earlier this month, but the relationship was said to have ended via email. Also, the 27-year-old singer's divorce from actor Russell Brand was just finalized in July.
As rumors circulate that Perry and Pattinson are taking their friendship to the next level, another source revealed that it's something that the "California Girlz" singer has wanted for a long time.
"Katy would secretly love to land Rob," said a second insider speaking to Us Weekly. "But she won't admit it."
While neither star has commented on their interaction together, the pair has been friends for many years. They also share a mutual friend, actress Shannon Woodward, for whom they planned a birthday party for together in the past, according to People magazine.
Moreover, after Pattinson felt "angry, hurt, and upset" following Stewart's cheating admission, Perry reportedly showed the actor support.
"She has reassured him she is very much there for him just as he was for her when she split from Russell," said a source close to the singer at the time, according to the Daily Star. "She urged him to break up with her."
