Meanwhile, It seems that Russell's ex is not bothered about his new fling and has been off carving out romantic prospects of her own.

Reportedly, Katy was spotted out on date with non other than Robert Pattinson last week and onlookers say she was very flirty.

However, the pair have been mates since 2008, so maybe it was just a friendly dinner?

But who knows, maybe they could be more than just good friends in the future? That would be one hot celeb couple!
