The pair were snapped eating at a restaurant in the Sunset Tower Hotel in WeHo (West Hollywood) over the weekend, TMZ reports.
But instead of just being spotted at the same table, the pair broke off from the group they were sitting with, separated by a spare chair for ~personal space~, where they leant in to each other to have a chat.
While fans were quick to jump to the conclusion that the two are now an item, it sounds like this might be a classic case of the internet getting ahead of itself.
While, yes, Katy is single after announcing her split with Orlando Bloom back in March, just last month R-Patz responded to wedding rumours with FKA Twigs with the line that they are ‘kind of’ engaged.

So for anyone shipping K-Patz, we hate to be the bearers of bad news but, based off this pic alone, we reckon they’re just good mates.
