Is this a final blow to Robert Pattinson's face? Riley Keough who once sparked romance rumours with Pattinson is now engaged and happily committed to Ben Smith. The upcoming model and Elvis Presley's granddaughter confirmed her engagement by posting a photo of herself with the engagement ring on her finger.
Cast member Robert Pattinson poses during a photocall for the film "The Rover" out of competition at the 67th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes May 18, 2014.
Ben is an Australian stuntman by profession. The photo of the newly engaged couple appeared on Facebook where they could be seen lying adorably on a bed. Ben appears to be shirtless in the photo while Riley is flaunting her diamond. The two reportedly first met on the set of "Mad Max: Fury Road."
Ben was the stuntman alongside Riley on the sets of "Mad Max: Fury Road." The two became close since then according to the reports by Just Jared. Though there is no confirmation to it, Riley allegedly dated Pattinson in July 2013.
"It was never anything serious, but things did happen between the two," said a source to Hollywoodlife that time, adding, "He chose his career and not to ruffle feathers more with Kristen and the relationship Riley & Kristen have and Riley didn't want to get locked up in the hoopla of a relationship with Rob."
Moreover, it was also suggested that Rob did not want to get hurt by getting allegedly serious with Riley.
"It is all in Rob's hands and he is focusing more on his career than getting into another relationship that might hurt him. He thinks Riley is great but he is treading water on making any big moves with her and she is okay with whatever direction it goes," said the source further to the website.
Riley and Kristen Stewart are reported to be great friends despite the link between the former with RPatz. Riley has also dated Alex Pettyfer in the past. The two called it off for unknown reasons though it was reported that cheating allegations was one of the reasons for separation.
