Things have been rough for Robert Pattinson and lady love Kristen Stewart for months. So, what better way to quell the rumors that things aren’t really “fine” now, than by, um, being photographed with another woman...

Over the weekend, while KStew was concert-ing with her pops in L.A., Rob went out with his pals in New York. Sources told Us Weekly that RPatz and his pal Tom Sturridge went to an IFC Film Dinner on Saturday. Afterwards, the pair met up with Tom’s fiancee Sienna Miller and Gossip Girl's Michelle Trachtenberg at The Electric Room Bar at Dream Hotel.

Although he was out with pals, paparazzi snapped photos of the actor chatting it up with an unidentified blonde woman, which immediately sparked rumors that Rob’s so-called reconciliation with Kristen was either untrue or crumbling already.

But fear not, you Cullen-loving kids. Multiple sources reported that the Patzinator was just being friendly and did nothing more than converse with the lucky lady. While we love Kristen and wish them luck in love (OMG! Bella and Edward forever!), we hope we see the two actually step out together in the near future.

After all, a girl can only smear so much diamond cream all over her face and wait outside a hotel room screaming, “Rob! I’ll love you forever!” before it gets creepy. (Not that we would do that or anything... )
