Robert Pattinson may be living out his Wishing Troll fantasy, setting up camp behind some bins under a bridge, but this doesn't seem to have put off Rihanna, who has reportedly been sending him some rather saucy texts.

Rihanna sends Robert Pattinson 'sexy texts'?

Since the revelations about Kristen Stewart and her cheaty ways came out, we've been wondering how long it would take for everyone to realise that the most eligible bachelor in town was back on the market.

But apparently RiRi's had a bit of a long-range crush for a while and is keen to nab herself a bit of R-Patz time. In fact she's so keen that she's supposedly got the ball rolling by sending him some sexy texts to cheer him up.

"They’ve met several times at award bashes over the years," a pal of Rihanna's apparently told OK!

"RiRi thinks he’s very cute, but nothing ever came of it because he was attached to Kristen — and it’s not her style to steal someone else’s man."

Robert Pattinson receives some sexy texts from Rihanna?

“She got Rob’s phone number from a mutual friend and has been sending him sexy, funny texts to cheer him up.”

Being RiRi, she apparently didn't bother kicking thingas off with a casual 'Hi, how's it going?' and getting straight in there with some serious flirting, Rob naturally ended up thinking it was some large, cosmic joke.

“At first, Rob thought someone Punk’d him. Eventually Rihanna convinced him she was for real, but Rob has been resisting her,” the source added.

"Rihanna would love to meet up with him. And Rob’s friends keep telling him he has to start enjoying life again. What better person to help cheer him up than Rihanna?”

A good point well made although frankly we can't really imagine RiRi and R-Patz getting it on. Not unless Rob gets himself an actual house to live in anyway.

But what do you think?
