Where in the world is Robert Pattinson? In the wake of Kristen Stewart’s cheating confession, the betrayed actor has moved out of the home he shared with his “Twilight” co-star. And according to Us magazine, he’s now holed up at Reese Witherspoon’s ranch.

 Needing a refuge from scandal and a place to nurse his heartache, R-Patz was reportedly offered the use of the Ojai  property where his “Water for Elephants” co-star wed Jim Toth last year. Who knew they were that close?

The brooding Brit is “a total mess,” said a source. “He’s questioning everything.”

And K-Stew, in turn, is “inconsolable,” per an insider. “She’s dying to save the relationship. It’s the only thing she cares about.”

Funny, it didn’t so much seem that way when she was making out with that married dude.  

Kennedy Guy

Taylor Swift may be a country girl, but she’s got sophisticated taste in men. Less than a month after being briefly linked to one Kennedy family scion — Patrick Schwarzenegger, Arnold’s son with ex-wife Maria Shriver — the “Speak Now” singer has evidently taken up with 18-year-old Conor Kennedy, the son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his recently deceased wife, Mary.

The 22-year-old country star has been quietly seeing Conor for a month, Radar Online reports. An observer who saw them emerge from a pizzeria relays, “They were holding hands and both had huge grins on their faces. Taylor playfully leaned into him as they walked.”

Intriguing fact: That same day, Conor was reportedly appointed the administrator of his late mother’s estate.

So apparently, either Taylor’s a gold digger … or she has writer’s block, and she figured dating a Kennedy man (read: being horribly mistreated) would be the best way to come up with new song material.
