The mystery woman seen riding around with Robert Pattinson this past weekend may have been revealed. According to various online reports, the young woman is believed to be Riley Keough.
If her name doesn’t sound familiar, her associations might — she is Elvis Presley’s granddaughter and once co-starred in a film with Pattinson’s ex, Kristen Stewart.
Pattinson, 27, was photographed driving around Los Angeles on June 29 with a flame-haired woman in the passenger seat of his battered pick-up truck. The pair picked up a ping-pong table together before returning to Pattinson’s home. While Pattinson was driving around Los Angeles with a mystery woman, Stewart was landing in Paris ahead of the Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week — furthering the reports that the two may have parted ways once again.
As for the 24-year-old Keough, this probably won’t be the last we’ll see of her. Here are five things to know
