Following the devastating news that girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheated on him, Robert Pattinson is finding comfort in an unexpected place.

According to The Daily Star, Katy Perry has extended her support to the Twilight star.

“Katy has been a rock for Rob,” said a source close to the actor.

Robert apparently did Katy a solid when the pop star was going through her breakup with ex-husband Russell Brand last year, and now she’s returning the favor.

“She has reassured him she is very much there for him just as he was for her when she split from Russell,” the insider said. “She has urged him to take a break with her [Kristen].”

Indeed, Robert has reportedly told Kristen that he needs two months of alone time before he can decide whether to he wants to stay in the relationship.

“She has sent him messages asking him to hook up in New York for crisis talks next week but he wants to be alone,” said the source.

That time apart should be easy to come by now that both stars have reportedly moved out of their shared Los Angeles home. But with upcoming appearances in October for the premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part 2, we’re curious how long this “time apart” will last!
