R-Pattz is seen locked in conversation

Robert Pattinson was snapped talking to a mystery blonde in New York celebrity haunt Electric Room Bar over the weekend.

The photo prompted some fans to worry that Rob, 26, had rethought his reconciliation with Kristen Stewart – but onlookers say the actor didn’t seem interested in pursuing his relationship with the woman any further.

‘He stayed at Electric Room late. [They chatted] in a friendly way, nothing more. He kept to himself mostly,’ a source tells US Weekly.

Rob was in his own world with his friends. He also looked scared of the world. He seemed a bit timid.’

Robert is thought to have forgiven Kristen, 22, for cheating on him with married director Rupert Sanders in July.

But while he’s been enjoying himself on nights out with his friends, Kristen – who spent the weekend in LA with her dad John – hasn’t had such an easy time getting over their temporary split.

Kristen is hooked on Googling herself and seeing all of the horrible stuff people write as a way of punishing herself,’ a friend tells The Sun.

‘It’s not healthy and Robert has said it must stop.’
