Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson has moved on from his tumultuous relationship with his vampire co-star Kristen Stewart with some rock 'n' roll royalty. Elvis' granddaughter Riley Keough has been spotted with the actor and the pair have been practically inseparable since. Let's hope KStew's not reading this...

Robert Pattinson has found himself a new lady, and it's not Katy Perry.

The 27-year-old has been spending time with Elivs Presley's granddaughter and things are going well.

The pair were spotted driving around LA together just this weekend and have reportedly spent most of last week with one another.

Although it is early days, the couple are planning their 4th July celebrations before Rob has to jet off to Toronto to start filming Map To The Stars.

An insider told 3am: “The relationship is very new but they’ve got close quickly and are hanging out together a lot, enjoying each other's company."

A source also told the MailOnline: "They're inseparable. Rob loves the fact that Riley is Elvis's granddaughter - that's true Rock'n'Roll royalty in his eyes."

The new couple have always got along well; "They have a lot in common - they both love LA, London, rock music and table tennis."

Despite the general acceptance that this is not a serious relationship there's no doubt that Kristen Stewart is not going to be happy.

No one likes to see their ex move on but it's got to sting even more when you're the one who introduced them.

KStew and Riley met on the set of their biopic The Runaways.

The source added: "Riley was always Kristen's friend dating back from their time filming The Runaways but recently Rob and Riley have been spending much more time together since meeting through their Dior modelling connection and Riley has stayed over at Rob's Los Feliz apartment."

Rob is the new face of Dior Homme and Riley has just finished her stint fronting a campaign.

Kristen is said to be "livid" with her ex and friend: "She feels that she acted as mentor to Riley on her first film The Runaways, introduced her to Rob and encouraged her to make a career of acting.

Rob has been made aware through friends that she is devastated.

"Kristen is emotionally volatile at best of times and flew off the handle when she found out about Rob's liaison with Riley. She's told Rob via friends she feels violated."

Meanwhile she showed off a glimpse of her new tattoo as she appeared looking fierce at the Chanel show in Paris for Haute-Couture week.

Well at least that's nice and far away from LA...probably for the best.
