Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have both been linked to a string of potential love interests since splitting in May, but could the couple be planting the stories themselves? Knowing the attention the couple get from the tabloids, a new report has accused K Stew of faking a relationship with Boardwalk Empire star to make Rob jealous.
After claims Rob was dating Stewart's BFF Riley Keough, which were out right denied by the actress' rep, OK magazine claim she "schemed" with Jamie Bochert to flirt with the model's fiance Michael Pitt at the Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris last month to make her ex jealous.
Pitt also denied soon after, via his rep, that there was no romantic link to Kristen who was merely sitting next to him during the show, but it's clear the tabloids just won't let this story lie, now claiming it was a ploy to get Rob back for the Riley rumours.

“Kristen shared her feelings about Riley with Jamie,” an insider reportedly claimed of the crazy plan, “It was Jamie who said, ‘Well, why don’t you do what Rob is doing to you? Use Michael for a while. Sit next to him at the fashion show. It will send the whole world buzzing.’”
“There was no harm done. Michael and Jamie have been steadies for years. They wanted to support Kristen, even if the plan was a little bit high-schoolish," they added.
Unsurprisingly the claims have been branded false with a source close to Kristen insisting there was "no scheme," to spark romance rumours.
Stewart and Pattinson reportedly ended their four year romance in May this year, though neither party have confirmed the split. Concentrating on work rather than their private lives both were working on their new movie projects this week, Rob on Maps To The Stars and Kristen on indie flick Camp X Ray.
That hasn't stopped even further romance rumours surfacing though as the latest lovely lady to be linked to Rob is director David Cronenberg's daughter Caitlin.
