Kristen Stewart 'furious over Pattinson romance'

Kristen Stewart is reportedly "seething" after it was claimed Robert Pattinson is dating Elvis Presley's granddaughter.
Last week the Twilight hunk was romantically linked to Riley Keough, the granddaughter of Elvis Presley. It has now been claimed that the pair have been spending a lot of time together, and Kristen is upset that her former flame Robert might have feelings for her pal.
"Rob only knows Riley because of Kristen. Now they've been inseparable in the last few weeks and have been having low-key dates at his LA home. Kristen is seething. She understands things are over between her and Rob, but to see him now dating one of her closest friends is just too much for her to deal with and seeing the pictures really hurt her," a source told British magazine Grazia.
"Kristen is furious and has texted Rob and called Riley to find out what's going on, but apparently none of her calls have been returned."
Robert and 24-year-old Riley - whose mother is Lisa Marie Presley - are thought to have started meeting up earlier this year. Riley was formerly the face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume, so is said to have given her advice to Robert, who is the current face of Dior Homme.
The British hunk is even believed to have been a shoulder for Riley to cry on when she split from her fiancé, actor Alex Pettyfer.
"Rob has known Riley for a long time. Riley even stayed at Rob and Kristen's home and they comforted her when she split up from Alex," a source explained. "Rob is a massive music fan, so is really impressed by Riley's musical roots, and she has said he reminds her of her grandfather.
"It started as a friendship, but one thing has led to another. Riley invited Rob to her birthday party at the end of May and they got on really well."
Kristen recently travelled to France for a Chanel catwalk show.
Although she was looking forward to the trip, hearing rumours about Robert and Riley is said to have put a dampener on the experience. Her friend Jennifer Lawrence is believed to have consoled the star when she got upset last week.
"Kristen's trip to Paris was meant to cheer her up but it's ended up being a miserable time. She put on a brave face in public, but finding out about Rob and Riley has been a big drain on her emotionally," said an insider.
Robert and Riley have reportedly been spending a lot of time together at Robert's home, bonding over their love of music. Riley has also reportedly been encouraging the 27-year-old actor to relax and party.
"Rob thinks Riley is really fun. She's like a breath of fresh air and he's really into her. They have been meeting up at his house where they spend the nights jamming on their guitars. They're both really into their music. Riley has even persuaded Rob to convert his guest house into a private nightclub," a source revealed. "There's already a dartboard, a bar and a sound system, and last week they picked up a ping pong table and a £4,000 pool table. They've been throwing wild private parties there."
Riley's representative has denied she is romantically involved with Robert.
