R-Patz & K-Per; get used to that horrible abbreviation because it may become the latest A-list coupling to grace the tabloids, because Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry have been spending an increasing amount of time together lately, fuelling strong rumours that the two are in the beginning stages of a relationship. New reports regarding the burgeoning romance also state that the two have even spent time in each others company over night; so are they two Hollywood's next bright young couple?

Pattinson, the new face of Dior Homme, and Perry have been spending a considerable amount of time together since he split from his fellow Twilight star Kristen Stewart, with The Sun reporting that Perry had provided Rob with a shoulder to cry on during the split. The paper states that they became increasingly close and now it looks as though the pair might even have fallen for each other, going on to say the pair have been spending a number of days together at Perry's Los Angeles home.

Rob and Kristen's relationship was on and off for a few months after the actress cheated on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, with their relationship coming to an end at last three weeks ago. Rob clearly hasn't let the split get him down though, with the Twilight actor already getting pretty serious with Perry it seems. A few weeks ago the pair were spotted at a rehearsal wedding of two strangers and more recently they were seen at a Bjork concert in LA together, with the pair spotted leaving separately after the show.

The report goes on to state that the two are now planning a romantic break together in the Caribbean. Kristen meanwhile might still be ruing over the split, but we don't know for sure yet.
